4th RISC-V Workshop Final Agenda

Our 4th RISC-V Workshop will be hosted by MIT in Cambridge, MA, July 12-13, 2016. The Workshop final agenda is shown below.  We are sold out and registration is now closed.

About the Workshop

The goals for our RISC-V workshops are for the community to share information about recent activity in various RISC-V projects underway around the globe, and to build consensus on future steps with the RISC-V ISA. This workshop features talks and poster presentations conveying recent activity in the RISC-V community at large, collected during an open submission period.
