RISC-V Foundation Announces Agenda For Workshop In Barcelona

Workshop features more than 30 tutorials, presentations, networking receptions and a tour of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center

WHAT: RISC-V Workshop in Barcelona, Spain

WHERE: Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Campus Nord, Vertex Building Auditorium

WHEN: Monday, May 7 to Wednesday, May 9, 2018

DETAILS: Co-hosted by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), the RISC-V Workshop in Barcelona gathers the RISC-V ecosystem to share notable RISC-V updates, projects and implementations. Born in academia and research, the RISC-V ISA delivers a new level of free, extensible software and hardware freedom on architecture, paving the way for the next 50 years of computing design and innovation.

Keynote sessions will include Robert Oshana, vice president of software engineering research and development at NXP, Martin Fink, executive vice president and chief technology officer at Western Digital, and Mateo Valero, director at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. The event schedule is as follows:

  • Monday, May 7, 2018: A half-day of tutorials from the working groups of the RISC-V technical committee. The sessions will cover topics such as base ISA ratification, BitManip, compliance, debug, formal spec, memory model, opcode space management, privilege spec, security, software toolchain and vector extensions.
  • Tuesday, May 8 and Wednesday, May 9, 2018: Two full days of presentations on RISC-V architecture, commercial and open-source implementations, software and silicon, vectors and security, applications and accelerators, simulation infrastructure and more.

The RISC-V Foundation will also be hosting a networking reception with poster sessions and demonstrations. The reception will feature the latest RISC-V implementations and innovations on the market. In addition, attendees can join one of several tours of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center during the networking reception. The BSC is located in a former chapel and was featured in Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code. The full agenda is included here.
