Overview

Top Research Topics at International Symposium on Microarchitecture?

  • Parallel computing (38.64%)
  • Cache (15.82%)
  • Embedded system (14.64%)

The discussions in International Symposium on Microarchitecture mainly cover the fields of Parallel computing, Cache, Embedded system, Computer architecture and Microarchitecture. While the primary focus in International Symposium on Microarchitecture is Parallel computing, it also dissects topics surrounding Scheduling (computing) and Very long instruction word as a whole. Cache algorithms, CPU cache, Cache pollution, Cache coloring and Cache invalidation are some of the facets of Cache tackled in the event.

Topics like Smart Cache, Cache-oblivious algorithm, Bus sniffing and Pipeline burst cache are tackled as part of the discussions on Cache algorithms. Studies on Cache pollution discussed in International Symposium on Microarchitecture link to the field of Page cache. International Symposium on Microarchitecture explores issues in Embedded system which can be linked to other research areas like Dram, Computer hardware and Operating system.

The in-depth study on Computer architecture also explores topics in the intersecting field of Microcode. It centers on topics in Thread (computing), with a focus on Multithreading. Compiler research discussed in the conference aim to provide more information in the subject of Programming language.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • MediaBench: a tool for evaluating and synthesizing multimedia and communications systems (2014 citations)
  • McPAT: an integrated power, area, and timing modeling framework for multicore and manycore architectures (2006 citations)
  • Razor: a low-power pipeline based on circuit-level timing speculation (1108 citations)

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

The published papers mostly deal with topics like Parallel computing, Cache, Embedded system, Microarchitecture and Instruction set. Aside from discussions in Parallel computing, the conference papers also deal with the subject of Compiler which intersects with Very long instruction word disciplines. The most cited articles hold forums on Microarchitecture that merge themes from other disciplines such as Microprocessor and Computer architecture.

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

  • Operating system
  • Programming language
  • Central processing unit

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

The conference tackles a plethora of topics, such as Parallel computing, Session (computer science), Embedded system, Speedup and Overhead (computing). International Symposium on Microarchitecture focuses on Parallel computing but sometimes tackles the closely related topic of Scalability which is concerned with Hardware acceleration. While work presented in it provided substantial information on Session (computer science), it also covered topics in Multimedia and Security privacy, Internet privacy.

The overlapping concepts between Dram and Reliability (computer networking) are the key highlights of Embedded system study. While Speedup is the focus of it, it also provided insights into the studies of Graph (abstract data type), Distributed computing and Artificial neural network, Deep learning, Artificial intelligence. The concepts on Overhead (computing) presented in the conference can also apply to other research fields, including Scheme (programming language), Bottleneck, Key (cryptography) and Throughput (business).

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • EdgeBERT: Sentence-Level Energy Optimizations for Latency-Aware Multi-Task NLP Inference (4 citations)
  • Uncovering In-DRAM RowHammer Protection Mechanisms:A New Methodology, Custom RowHammer Patterns, and Implications (3 citations)
  • A Deeper Look into RowHammer’s Sensitivities:Experimental Analysis of Real DRAM Chipsand Implications on Future Attacks and Defenses (3 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.

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, 5.43% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 24.59% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 18.03% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 27.87% of all publications and 29.51% 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.

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).
