Present CFP : 2019

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
Prototyping
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.
