                                                                ADVANCE PROGRAM


                                                      with special emphasis on
                              Instruction-Level Parallel Processing Technology

                                    The Portland Hilton, Portland, Oregon, USA
                                                            December 1-4, 1992

On behalf of the MICRO-25 Program Committee, I would like to invite you to
attend this special quarter-century International Symposium on Microarchi-
tecture in Portland, Oregon, on December 1-4, 1992.

This year, the Program Committee has selected an outstanding set of papers
out of a large number of strong submissions. The papers were rigorously
reviewed by external referees as well as the Program Committee members.
The papers were selected for their technical excellence, with an emphasis
on their originality and quality of presentation.

In addition to paper presentations, this 25th anniversary meeting of MICRO
will feature a series of invited lectures and panels delivered by
prominent researchers and designers from leading industrial corporations.
The lectures will focus on critical components of the instruction-level
parallel processing technology. In particular, these lectures will cover
new directions for research and development in compilers and

The symposium will be held at the Portland Hilton which is ideally located
in the heart of Portland downtown. As many of you know already, the Port-
land downtown area is beautifully landscaped with many attractions.
Within walking distance, there are over 50 restaurants, the Performing
Arts Center, the Nike Town, the Portland Art Museum, the Oregon Historical
Society, Nordstrorm, Saks Fifth Avenue, The Galleria, Pioneer Place, and
the Yamhill Marketplace. Some of us may even want to take advantage of
shopping without paying sales tax in Oregon. This unique environment prom-
ises to offer all of us a productive yet relaxing week at the symposium.

For the last quarter century, the annual MICRO conference has been a key
forum for presenting major breakthroughs in computer microarchitecture.
In particular, its technical papers have made significant contributions to
the technologies underlying VLIW and superscalar processors. Last year's
MICRO-24 was the first of the major conferences with instruction-level
parallelism as its primary focus. With the instruction-level parallel
processing technology developing rapidly, this year's conference promises
to be the premier forum for discussion and debate on this technology. We
invite all leading researchers and designers to participate in this land-
mark meeting in Portland to discuss new directions in instruction-level
parallel processing.

                                                  MICRO-25 Student Travel Grant

          I am pleased to announce the MICRO-25 student travel grant. The grant
amount is $350 for each recipient. The purpose of the grant is to supple-
ment the advisors' research grants or the students' fellowship travel
allowance to make attending MICRO-25 more affordable. The details of the
grant are given below:

(1) Students who are presenting papers at MICRO-25 will be given higher
          priority in the selection process. We expect to have approximately 30
          recipients this year.

(2) Student applicants should fill out the enclosed application form and
          e-mail the application to Sabrina Hwu (sabrina@crhc.uiuc.edu) by
          October 20, 1992. Receipt of the application will be acknowledged
          immediately. The decision will be sent to the applicants by November
          1, 1992.

(3) The grant checks will be sent to the recipients AFTER the conference.
          Each grant recipient is required to send in a one-page summary of
          his/her experience with MICRO-25 after the conference via e-mail to
          sabrina@crhc.uiuc.edu. The check will be delivered after we receive
          the report.

(4) The grant recipients are still required to pay the conference regis-
          tration fee. Note that all student participants will be entitled to
          ALL Micro-25 events and proceedings in spite of the lower registration
          fee for students.
