The committee was particularly impressed by the quality of the artifact(s) that the paper provides and its potential impact on the broader research community as a foundation on which extensive follow-on research can be performed across the fields of computer architecture, operating systems, run times, distributed systems, and of course AR itself.  We were also impressed that the authors provided, motivated, and explained new metrics by which the research community can evaluate work done in the AR space.  This paper could easily be a "Test of Time" paper years down the road... if IISWC had such a thing.
