For your submission to be reviewed, you need to follow these two steps:
  1. Submit your Abstract and Paper at the Submissions Website: You need to use the submissions website to submit your abstract and paper. Please note the submission guidelines for both, at the DPC website. You need to complete this step first before submitting your code.

  2. Submit Code to You need to send an email to with a .tar file that includes the following items:
    1. A text file containing the email you received from the DPC submissions website after you completed Step 1.
    2. ONLY TWO FILES that contain your modifications to the simulation infrastructure. These were the only two files you were allowed to modify as specified by the competition rules. Both files should be located in the directory PREF_KIT/src/prefetch/ and should have the names: sample_prefetcher.cpp AND sample_prefetcher.h.
    Your email should only contain the tar file with the three files specified above. You should use the same email address you used in Step 1 to submit your file.
    IMPORTANT NOTE: You should not send any files other than the three specified in Step 2. We will copy your files to our directories, compile and test them. You shouldn't make any changes to your simulator directories or makefile that prevent us from compiling and running your two code files.

Thanks to all of you for participating, and good luck with your submissions.
