Overview

Top Research Topics at International Symposium on Computer Architecture?

  • Parallel computing (34.99%)
  • Computer architecture (17.75%)
  • Cache (14.02%)

International Symposium on Computer Architecture explores disciplines such as Parallel computing, Computer architecture, Cache, Embedded system and Operating system. The event features Parallel computing research that overlaps with concepts in Compiler. International Symposium on Computer Architecture aims to address concerns in Cache, specifically in the areas of Cache algorithms, Cache pollution, Cache coloring, CPU cache and Page cache.

Cache pollution research discussed connects with the study of Bus sniffing. Most of the Embedded system studies addressed also intersect with Dram. The majority of Operating system studies presented zero in on Software.

The event focuses on Shared memory but the discussions also offer insight into other areas such as Interleaved memory and Uniform memory access, Distributed shared memory. The research on Interleaved memory tackled can also make contributions to studies in the areas of Extended memory, Memory map and Flat memory model. The studies on Cache invalidation discussed can also contribute to research in the domains of MESI protocol and MESIF protocol.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • The SPLASH-2 programs: characterization and methodological considerations (3517 citations)
  • Wattch: a framework for architectural-level power analysis and optimizations (2586 citations)
  • Transactional memory: architectural support for lock-free data structures (2192 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at International Symposium on Computer Architecture:

The published articles mostly deal with topics like Parallel computing, Cache, Computer architecture, Embedded system and Operating system. While Parallel computing is the focus of the conference publications, it also provides insights into the studies of Multithreading and Thread (computing). While the most cited articles focused on Embedded system, they were also able to explore topics like Dram and Computer hardware.

What topics the last edition of the conference is best known for?

  • Operating system
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Programming language

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

The concepts of Speedup, Parallel computing, Embedded system, Memory management and Software are tackled in the conference. Parallel computing research featured in it incorporates concerns from various other topics such as Scalability, Bandwidth (computing) and Data structure. It focuses on Embedded system but sometimes tackles the closely related topic of Efficient energy use which is concerned with Application-specific integrated circuit, Flexibility (engineering) and Energy consumption.

While the event focused on Memory management, it was also able to explore topics like Dram and Bandwidth (signal processing). International Symposium on Computer Architecture tackles studies in Compiler and the interrelated subject of Computer architecture and Hardware architecture to gain insights into Software. Research in Key (cryptography) and the interrelating topic of Overhead (computing) were among the subjects of interest in the Cache studies discussed in the conference.

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • QUAC-TRNG: High-Throughput True Random Number Generation Using Quadruple Row Activation in Commodity DRAM Chips (8 citations)
  • CODIC: A Low-Cost Substrate for Enabling Custom In-DRAM Functionalities and Optimizations (6 citations)
  • TENET: A Framework for Modeling Tensor Dataflow Based on Relation-centric Notation (5 citations)

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2021 edition, 1.23% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 30.00% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 11.25% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 28.75% of all publications and 30.00% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

Returning Institution Index

The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
