ISCA, International Symposium on Computer Architecture
Status Active
Genre Computer Architecture Conference
Inaugurated 1973
Most recent 2016 (Seoul)
Next event 2017 (Toronto)
Organized by ACM SIGARCH and IEEE Computer Society

The International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA) is an annual academic conference on computer architecture, generally viewed as the top-tier in the field.[1] Association for Computing Machinery's Special Interest Group on Computer Architecture (ACM SIGARCH) and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society are technical sponsors.

ISCA has participated in the Federated Computing Research Conference in 1993, 1996, 1999, 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015, every year that the conference has been organized.

Influential Paper Award[edit]

The ISCA Influential Paper Award is presented annually at ISCA by SIGARCH and TCCA.[2] The award is given for the paper with the most impact in the field (in the area of research, development, products, or ideas) from the conference 15 years ago.[3]
