In Person in Toronto, Canada

in conjunction with the 56th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture (MICRO-56)


(CWIDCA 2022 in Chicago, IL)


The MICRO Career Workshop brings together diverse members of the Computer Architecture community at different levels in academia, industry, research, government and students to promote the recruitment, retention and progression of women and under-represented groups with research interests in computer architecture. The workshop is the longest running diversity focused workshop in the computer architecture community.

The workshop highlights emerging and hot topics in computer architecture, but also provides opportunities for career mentoring advice, cross-disciplinary research, networking and finding internships and career opportunities in computer architecture. The workshop contains a mix of technical presentations and career-focused presentations, followed by panel sessions from academic and industry leaders, student posters and presentations, and informal activities to provide mentoring and guidance specifically designed to assist students of this important constituency as they get started in their careers.

The workshop includes a student research poster session, career panels, advice on careers in academia, industry research, government, or deciding to start your own company. Keynotes and invited talks will cover the latest research trends in computer architecture. The workshop provides a forum to tackle controversial contemporary topics that students might not have an opportunity to discuss otherwise, such as racial injustice, mental health, handling pandemics challenges, and getting help.
