Proceedings for the 5th RISC-V Workshop, hosted at Google’s Quad campus in Mountain View, California on November 29-30, 2016 are now available with links to the slide presentations and videos shown in the Agenda below.

The goals of the workshop are to bring the RISC-V community together to share information about recent activity in the various RISC-V projects underway around the globe, and build consensus on the future evolution of the instruction set.

Each workshop has helped both document the rapidly rising popularity of RISC-V and boosted it further due to the information shared and collaborations formed at the event.

In case you missed the event, here’s some coverage of the workshop to help bring you up to speed:

Please be sure to join us for the 6th RISC-V Workshop hosted by NVIDIA and Shanghai Jiao Yong University in Shanghai China, May 9th-10th, 2017.

Hope to see you at the next workshop!
