2019 MICRO Test of Time Award
Call for Nominations (Deadline: August 16, 2019)

Details and List of Eligible Papers:

The MICRO Test of Time (ToT) Award Committee is soliciting nominations
for the fifth MICRO ToT Award to be given at the International
Symposium on Microarchitecture in October 2019, to be held in
Columbus, Ohio. This award recognizes the most influential papers
published in past MICRO conferences that have had significant impact
in the field.

The award will recognize an influential MICRO paper whose influence is
still felt 18-22 years after its initial publication. In other words,
the award will be given to at most one paper that was published at
MICRO conferences in any of the years N-22, N-21, N-20, N-19, or N-18.
This year, N = 2019, so only papers published at MICRO conferences
held in 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, or 2001 are eligible. An eligible
paper that has received at least 100 citations (according to Google
Scholar) is automatically nominated, but explicit nominations of such
papers are still encouraged.


To nominate a paper, send an email to
micro-tot-award-nominations at googlegroups.com by August 16, 2019, with
the following:
1. The title, the author list, and publication year of the nominated paper
2. A 100-word (maximum) nomination statement, describing why the paper
deserves the Test of Time Award
3. The name, title, affiliation of the nominator, and if appropriate,
the relationship of the nominator to the authors

Only one paper can be nominated in a single email.  There is a maximum
of five nominations per person.  You cannot nominate a paper that you
are a co-author on.  One paper will be selected as the award winner
from the pool of nominees by the award committee.
