3rd RISC-V Workshop Proceedings

By January 23, 2016October 1st, 2020No Comments

Our 3rd RISC-V Workshop was held at the Oracle Conference Center in Redwood Shores, CA January 5-6, 2016. The Workshop agenda is shown below along with the presentation slides and videos from each talk as well as summaries from each of the Breakout Sessions.


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