Today, during an awards ceremony at the 2021 International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA), it was announced that Adrian Sampson has received the IEEE TCCA Young Computer Architect Award, which "recognizes outstanding research contributions by an individual in the field of Computer Architecture." The award is granted by the Technical Committee on Computer Architecture (TCCA), which is part of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). "The winner of the award will be someone who has made an outstanding, innovative research contribution or contributions to Computer Architecture."

Adrian Sampson, Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science in the Ann S. Bowers College of Computing and Information Science, follows last year's recipient, Christina Delimitrou.

Sampson notes that the TCCA "includes some of the computer architects I respect most in the world, like the great Karu Sankaralingam, my own advisor, Luis Ceze, my extremely accomplished old labmate, Brandon Lucia, and our own Christina Delimitrou." Assessing the meaning of the award, he adds: "I’m still reeling from the news that I get to join their ranks."
