Call for Participation
3rd Annual Work in Progress Session
Researchers are invited to submit abstracts of new research for
inclusion in an informal "Work In Progress" session at the
International Symposium on High-Performance Computer Architecture to
be held in Cambridge, Mass., USA, from February 2-6, 2000. The idea
behind the session is to have fun, and to describe new and novel research
ideas and directions that elicit exciting discussion among conference
This is intended to be a fun, informal session that will
spark ideas and interactions. In keeping with this spirit, prizes will
be awarded based on audience feedback. Topics of interest include all
aspects of high-peformance computer architecture, including (but not
All accepted abstracts
will be included in a digest that is distributed at the conference
and afterwards published in the ACM SIGARCH Computer Architecture News.

Additional Information for Presenters
- The early registration deadline has been extended to 1/17.
- WIP presenters need to register for the conference. No special
registration for the WiP Session is required.
- The eight-minute presentation limit will be strictly enforced.
- Presenters are reminded that the session is supposed to be FUN,
and so humor and levity in the presentation is STRONGLY
encouraged (indeed, required!).
- In case your abstract has multiple authors, please let us know
who will be presenting.
- Please let us know preferred shirt size in the event that we are
able to make WIP T-shirts (this isn't certain yet).
- Let us know if you need any special equipment beyond what the
conference provides for other sessions (i.e. overhead and LCD
- Your abstracts will appear in the June issue of the ACM SIGARCH
Computer Architecture News - in order to make this possible we
will need a revised, properly formatted, and camera-ready version
of your abstract by March 15th. We will send some additional
formatting instructions soon via email.
