Workshops

NOPE

NOPE is a workshop that discusses open, honest port-mortems of research projects which ran into unexpected limitations and resulted in lessons learned. In addition, it will offer a venue to discuss contributions that have been underappreciated over time. The goals of NOPE are to reflect on negative outcomes and offer a venue to uncover opportunities to move forward by reflecting on mistakes made during the research process.

ML4HPC

The EuroLab4HPC workshop on the Convergence of ML and HPC will include invited talks from industry and academic institutions on technologies at the intersection of machine learning and high-performance computing. The workshop also solicits poster presentations on areas of interest ranging from high-performance data analytics to machine learning techniques for scientific applications.

YArch

The second Young Architect Workshop will provide a forum for junior graduate students studying computer architecture and related fields to present early stage or on-going work and receive constructive feedback from experts in the field. Students will also take part in mentoring opportunities in the form of keynote talks, a panel discussion, and 1-on-1 meetings with established architects.

WAX

WAX (Workshop on Approximate Computing Across the Stack) is a workshop on approximate computing, a research direction that asks how computer systems can be made better by relaxing the requirement that they be exactly correct. Approximate systems raise questions from across the system stack, from circuits to applications. WAX is a venue for discussion, debate, and brainstorming on all of these topics.

Tutorials

FireSim and Chipyard

Attendees will be able to customize an industry and silicon-proven RISC-V microprocessor design, run their own high-performance FPGA-accelerated simulations of their design in the cloud, and learn how to push their design to silicon, guided by the FireSim and Chipyard developers.

Understanding System Implications of Neural Recommendation

Despite the importance of DNN-based personalized recommendation models and their unique compute demands, relatively little research attention has been devoted to recommendation systems. To address this gap in the research community, this tutorial serves as a venue to discuss, share, and foster research for personalized recommendation systems.

ESP

ESP is an open-source research platform for heterogeneous system-on-chip design that combines a flexible tile-based architecture and a modular system-level design methodology. In this tutorial, we demonstrate the main features of the open-source ESP infrastructure.

BenchCouncil Benchmarks

International Open Benchmark Council (BenchCouncil) is a non-profit research institute which aims to promote the standardization, benchmarking, evaluation, incubation, and promotion of open-source chip, AI, and Big Data techniques. This tutorial is aimed at presenting AIBench—an artificial intelligence (in short, AI) benchmark suite, and BigDataBench—a big data benchmark suite
