Each year at the International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA), the Influential Paper Award recognizes the paper from the ISCA proceedings 15 years earlier that has had the most impact on the field (in terms of research, development, products, or ideas) during the intervening years. Candidate papers for the award are selected by the current year&#x2019;s ISCA Program Committee (PC). The final award selection is made by the current ISCA PC Chair (Margaret Martonosi), the ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Architecture (SIGARCH) Chair (David Wood), and the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Computer Architecture (TCCA) Chair (David Kaeli). The award includes an honorarium for the authors and a certificate. While ISCA 1998 offered many worthy papers to consider, the 2013 award was given to the paper &#x201C;Pipeline Gating: Speculation Control for Energy Reduction&#x201D; by Srilatha Manne, Artur Klauser, and Dirk Grunwald. All of the authors were at the University of Colorado at the time of publication. The paper explores methods to estimate the confidence of branch predictor outcomes, with a goal of speculating less aggressively past branches with low-confidence predictions.
