Fourth Workshop on

Computer Architecture Research Directions

 

CARD 2015

 

Held in conjunction with the 42nd International Symposium on Computer Architecture

http://www.ece.cmu.edu/calcm/isca2015/

Sunday, June 14 2015, Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.

 

Description

CARD 2015 presents three mini-panels consisting of three experts in the field, two as panelists and the third as a moderator/panelist. The purpose of this workshop is to serve as a forum in which experts in each field can debate the state of the field and future directions. The format is designed to quickly focus on areas of disagreement, rather than expounding on areas of agreement which, presumably, have ceased to be controversial, at least between the two panelists.

 

The hope is that the workshop will be useful to a diverse audience from a graduate student looking for good thesis topic areas to a senior researcher who wants to hear the opinions of other area experts.

 

Each 60 minute panel will consist of an opening statement from each panelist (10 minutes each, 20 minutes total), discussion between the moderator and panelists (5 to 10 minutes), and questions from the audience (30 to 35 minutes).

 

 

More specifically, this workshop consists of following three 60 minute mini-panels:
