is allowed to submit the same idea to different tracks by making
parametric changes to stay within the hardware budget.
a contestant is also allowed to have multiple submissions to the
same track, however, these submissions must be different ideas
(or a different combination of the ideas). Simply
changing the parameters of your predictor (say 2x history length
and 0.5x the table entries) and submitting it as a different
entry within the same track is discouraged.
submission should include an abstract, writeup, and predictor
To submit your entry, you will first need to create a tarball
named after the first author, using the following
1. Create a directory with the full name of the first
author (say John Smith) and CBP subdirectories:
2. Copy your predictor.h and predictor.cc
to the appropriate cbp directory. For example, to submit to
the 8KB track, you would have cbp8KB/predictor.h and cbp8KB/predictor.cc
You are allowed to submit to multiple track within the same
tarball. For example to submit to the 64KB category also,
you would take the 64KB predictor and copy it to cbp64KB directory
as cbp64KB/predictor.h and cbp64KB/predictor.cc
your writeup as paper.pdf within the JohnSmith
directory. The paper must be written in conference
format (double column, 10 point font) with a limit of
4-pages. The paper should clearly describe the
organization of the predictor, the working of the predictor,
and computation of the storage budget. Please mention the key evaluation result
(the Average MPKI obtained by your predictor over the 223
traces) in the abstract.
4. Create a text file called README.txt
within the JohnSmith directory with the following information:
1. Contact author name, institution and email
2. Any conflicts authors have with PC members
(Trevor Mudge, Stuart Biles, Rami Sheikh, Ronald Dreslinkski, Nam Sung Kim,
Moinuddin Qureshi, Murali M. Annavaram, Lieven Eeckhout, Jared Start,
Pierre Michaud, or Sergio Schuler).
3. Which track(s) your submission is targeting.
"ls" (It should now give you the following)
6. Create the zipped tarball, using the following commands:
tar -cvf JohnSmith.tar JohnSmith/
submit your entry, send an email to email@example.com
with the following:
Author Names (in the order)
The deadline for submission is May
6th, 2016 11:59 PM CST.
Handling multiple submissions from the same author:
If you want to
make multiple submissions to the same track, you must send a
separate email for each entry (along with its own tarball).
In case you are making multiple submissions, with the same
first author, then add a number to the name of the tarball. For
example, JohnSmith1.tar.gz , JohnSmith2.tar.gz, JohnSmith3.tar.gz,
