Across the computer systems and architecture community, there has been A Call to Action to advance and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) values through systemic change. Towards this step,  HPCA 2021, PPoPP 2021, CGO 2021, and CC 2021 held a joint session panel on “Valuing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Our Computing Community” to discuss paths across academia and industry. Recent blog posts have raised awareness and advocated for greater DEI efforts including: Gender Diversity in Computer Architecture, Statement on Diversity at MICRO-50, What Happens to Us Does Not Happe ..read more

SIGARCH/TCCA Best Practices & Resources
IEEE TCCA Blog
by Martha Kim and Moin Qureshi
1y ago
Scientific progress relies on sound reviewing processes.  The integrity of our review process is paramount, and it rests on our handling of ethical concerns and conflicts of interest.  These issues have been compounded by the rapid growth in the computer architecture community,  increases in reviewer load, and the introduction of virtual and hybrid conferences.  To support our conference organizers, the SIGARCH and TCCA Executive Committees have developed and updated several written guidelines and best practices documents.  These resources cover a range of strategic an ..read more

HPCA 2022 Trip Report
IEEE TCCA Blog
by Elaheh Sadredini and Daniel Wong
1y ago
This is a repost from the ACM SigArch blog. Welcome to the trip report on the 28th IEEE International Symposium on High-Performance Computer Architecture (HPCA-28)! This marks the second fully-virtual HPCA (and hopefully last). With signs of the COVID-19 pandemic receding last November 2021, HPCA decided to move to April 2022 with the goal of an in-person conference. Unfortunately, the only thing predictable about COVID-19 is its unpredictability. For the second time in a row, General Chairs Jung Ho Ahn and John Kim worked tirelessly to organize another successful fully-virtual HPCA. HPCA-28 w ..read more

How did the road to new adventure in Superconductor Neural Network Accelerator happen?
IEEE TCCA Blog
by Koji Inoue, Jangwoo Kim and Masamitsu Tanaka

1: What is Superconductor SFQ? Moore’s Law, doubling the number of transistors in a chip every two years, has so far contributed to the evolution of computer systems. Unfortunately, we cannot expect sustainable transistor shrinking anymore, marking the beginning of the so-called post-Moore era. Therefore, it has become essential to explore emerging devices, and superconductor single-flux-quantum (SFQ) logic that operates in a 4.2-kelvin environment is a promising candidate. As shown in Figure 1, Josephson junctions (JJs) are used as switching elements in SFQ logic to compose a superconductor r ..read more
