Prof. Scott Mahlke received
the ACM SIGARCH (Special Interest Group on Computer Architecture) / IEEE-CS
TCCA (Technical Committee on Computer Architecture) Influential ISCA
(International Symposium on Computer Architecture) Paper Award at ISCA 2006.
This award recognizes the paper from the ISCA Proceedings 15 years
earlier that has had the most impact on computer architecture. The award was
for the paper, "IMPACT: An Architectural Framework for
Multiple-Instruction-Issue Processors," by Pohua P. Chang, Scott A. Mahlke,
William Y. Chen, Nancy J. Warter, and Wen-mei W. Hwum, from Proceedings
of the 18th Annual Int'l Symposium on Computer Architecture, May 1991,
pp. 266-275. It was Mahlke’s first paper as a graduate student.
