Conference Call for Papers

WCAE provides a forum for educators in computer architecture to discuss and share their experiences and teaching philosophy. Past WCAEs have been held in conjunction with HPCA, ISCA, and Micro. Over 210 papers on computer architecture education have been presented at the workshop since its inception in 1995. Participants will come away from the workshop with new ideas on delivering courses in computer architecture. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following.

Topics of interest

Approaches to introductory courses

Advanced courses

Online resources

Resources for \”flipped\” classes

Materials for active learning

Lecture vs. hybrid vs. flipped classes

Lab support for distance education

Textbook development

Critical evaluation of textbook approaches

Metrics for evaluating learning gains

Integration of research into teaching

Industrial support for teaching

Resources & techniques for teaching …

GPU architecture & programming

multicore/many-core issues

comp. arch. concepts with FPGAs

architectural & software issues specific to embedded systems

Hardware tools

Simulators and other software tools


Visualization aids

Broadening participation in computer architecture

Encouraging undergraduate research

Encouraging students to pursue a Ph.D.

For an idea of what we have published in the past, see the WCAE archive, made possible with funding from the SIGCSE Special Projects fund. Many of these papers are also in the ACM Digital Library.

Submission of contributions

Authors should submit a full paper (not to exceed 8 pages), following the IEEE manuscript templates.
