"Wildly Heterogeneous Post-CMOS Technologies Meet Software" at Schloss Dagstuhl (copy)
From February 5 to 10, 2017 the Dagstuhl seminar 17061 „Wildly Heterogeneous Post-CMOS Technologies Meet Software“ took place, organized by Jeronimo Castrillon (TU Dresden, leader of the Orchestration path), Tei-Wei Kuo (National Taiwan University), Heike E. Riel (IBM Research Zurich), and Sayeef Salahuddin (University of California, Berkeley). The 30 participants, among them 5 from cfaed, enjoyed one week of interesting talks and intensive, interdisciplinary discussions about the challenges and opportunities of advancing computing beyond current CMOS technology. The participants covered the whole spectrum from post-CMOS materials research up to software development for future heterogeneous computing systems. Soon, a report about the seminar will be compiled and made available at the seminar website. During the seminar, Prof. Castrillon gave an overview of the research topics in the Orchestration Path of cfaed. Apart from the technical program, the seminar had ample space for discussions and social activities (e.g., a tour in the city of Trier).
