Best Paper Award at NORCAS 2020


Our paper "HyVE: A Hybrid Voting-based Eviction Policy for Caches" was awarded the Best Paper Award at NORCAS 2020. The paper is authored by Akshay Srivatsa, Sebastian Nagel, Nael Fasfous, Nguyen Anh Vu Doan, Thomas Wild, and Andreas Herkersdorf. It proposes a novel cache eviction method, which extends multiple standalone eviction policies with a ranking system and combines them using voting theory methodologies to decide upon which entry to evict when a cache is full. The publication covers both a comparison of HyVE with other eviction policies as well as its implementation on an FPGA prototype.

NorCAS 2020 is the IEEE Nordic Circuits and Systems Conference, it took place as a virtual event on October 27 and 28, 2020.

Congratulations to the authors for this success!
