Agenda For Inaugural RISC-V Summit in Santa Clara, Calif. from Dec. 3-6

Inaugural RISC-V Summit Agenda

Dec. 3-6, 2018

The RISC-V Foundation announced the agenda for its first annual RISC-V Summit at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif. from Dec. 3-6, 2018. The Summit, in partnership with Informa’s Knowledge & Networking Division, KNect365, will gather the RISC-V ecosystem for a multi-track conference featuring keynotes, tutorials, exhibitions and networking receptions. The RISC-V Summit will host multi-track technical sessions, an exhibition hall and will feature keynotes from Antmicro, Facebook, Microchip, NXP, Qualcomm, SiFive and Western Digital.

The RISC-V Foundation workshops and events around the world celebrate the growth of the ecosystem and showcase major projects and successful technology using the RISC-V ISA. As the RISC-V ecosystem has grown rapidly over the past few years, the RISC-V Foundation’s membership now includes more than 150 organizations, individuals, academics and universities from 25 countries around the world.

This will be a three day event broken down as follows:

  • Monday, Dec. 3, 2018 – Pre-conference day reserved for on-site registration, networking, initial tutorials and the welcome party.
  • Tuesday and Wednesday, Dec. 4-5, 2018 – These two days will follow the traditional two-day format used at previous workshops with presentations covering various RISC-V projects underway within the RISC-V community and will include a poster / demo reception on Tuesday evening.
  • Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018 – The week of the Summit will conclude with RISC-V Foundation member meetings with attendance restricted to members of the RISC-V Foundation.  The day will consist of Technical and Marketing Committee face to face meetings to progress the work currently underway within our various Task Groups.
