High-performance computing is reaching a threshold marked by multiple technology and system-infrastructure trends, which have the potential to create a paradigm shift in the industry. Scheduled for June 13 in advance of the 2016 Symposia on VLSI Technology & Circuits, a full-day short course by leading industry and academic experts entitled “Inflections in VLSI Technology—Cloud & Beyond” will explore these significant technology trends that will define the future of computing.
The short course is part of the Symposia’s overall theme “Inflections for a Smart Society,” reflecting the semiconductor industry’s transition as scaling slows and integration technologies rise to meet the challenges of an increasingly connected society.
The full-day short course enables participants to fully explore this subject in sessions that cover high-performance computing, silicon photonics, memory technologies, cloud computing and novel power devices; as well as system-level topics such as ultra-low energy consumption, advanced memory architectures, neuromorphic computing technology, flexible sensors and increased battery life.
The 2016 Symposia on VLSI Technology & Circuits will be held at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, Honolulu, Hawaii, from June 13-16, 2016 (Technology) and June 15-17, 2016 (Circuits). Sponsors include the IEEE Electron Devices Society and the Japan Society of Applied Physics, in cooperation with the IEEE Solid State Circuits Society.
