The 49th International Symposium of Computer Architecture (ISCA)
includes a separate industry session in the main program following the
success of the industry track inaugurated in ISCA 2020. The ISCA
Industry Track was established under a different vision and motive to
bring the values, trends, and perspectives of real hardware product
and system design from the industries. It also serves as a venue to
encourage more participation from industries to interact with academia
for forward-looking research challenges and solutions.  In light of
the very specific purpose of the industry track, the submission
guidelines are also very specific.

At a glance:
        * First author, and most authors, must be from industry
        * Not for student internship projects
        * Submissions must include all affiliations for review
(authors may remain blinded)
        * All ISCA formatting guidelines apply (11 pages without
references, 10pt font)
        * Abstract Deadline: January 7, 2022 at 11:59 PM EST
        * Full Paper Deadline: January 14, 2022 at 11:59 PM EST

Submission Guidelines:
        * The papers ideally include (1) retrospective evaluations of
real working products, (2) upcoming industry products on their
roadmaps, and/or (3) planned products that were canceled but present
interesting insights or lessons learned.
        * The following types of submissions will not be considered:
(1) students' short-term internship projects in industries, or (2)
speculation about hardware that might be built.
        * The first and most of the authors of such papers must work
in industry.
        * The submissions are required to disclose the affiliations of
all authors. Reviewers want to know which product is being evaluated
and which company is writing the paper. Review assignments will still
follow common practice to avoid conflicts of interest.
        * All formatting guidelines for the general submission
(including page limits) must also be followed by any paper submitted
to the industry track. The accepted paper will be labelled as an
"Industry Product" in the conference proceedings.
        * Submissions will require authors to explain how the paper is
a fit for industry track and meets the guidelines presented above.

Submissions that fail to abide by the guidelines will be rejected
without review.

Important Dates
The program committee recognizes that industry papers need to be
approved by management (often involving multiple rounds of redaction)
before they can be submitted, and there can be restrictions about
filing patents before submitting a paper. Therefore, a later deadline
schedule is adopted to increase the chances of receiving such papers.
        * Abstract Deadline: January 7, 2022 at 11:59 PM EST
        * Full Paper Deadline: January 14, 2022 at 11:59 PM EST
        * Rebuttal Period: February 19-25, 2022
        * Notification: March 2, 2021
        * Camera-Ready Deadline: Same as ISCA Main Program (TBD)

Topics of Interest
Paper topics are not limited to hardware tapeouts.  In particular,
papers that are software-centric papers relevant to the ISCA audience
are welcome in this track (e.g. datacenter software work, compiler
work, accelerator software stack work), but they should adhere to the
tenet that they must be industry papers about production-level work -
whether retrospective, planned and on the roadmap, or planned but

        * Processors, SoCs, GPUs, and domain-specific accelerators
        * Systems and interconnect technologies for HPC, cloud, or data centers
        * Embedded, mobile, and IoT processors
        * FPGA or reconfigurable architectures
        * Storage and emerging memory systems
        * Architectures using emerging technology
