IEEE Rebooting Computing Plenary Talks
 8 November, 8:45-9:45am Eastern  Reston, VA

The live-stream is over. Check back on for on-demand recordings from ICRC 2018.

You can still register to attend the live-stream of the IEEE Industry Summit on the Future of Computing.

Now in its 3rd year, the IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing is the premier venue for novel computing approaches, including algorithms and languages, system software, system and network architectures, new devices and circuits, and applications of new materials and physics. This is an interdisciplinary conference that has participation from a broad technical community, with emphasis on all aspects of the computing stack.

November 7 plenary (8:45am EST): "The upcoming era of specialization and the research needed to make it work for our country" - Dr. William Chappell, Director, DARPA Microsystems Technology Office

Abstract: Since the initial paper describing the future of integrated circuits by Gordon moore, there has been unprecedented growth of the electronics industry. The past 53 years have been good for both the economics and security of our country. However we find ourself in a “complexity bind” that makes this a very unique moment in time for the broader electronics community. A mix of changing underlying physics, foreign investment, and growing cyber concerns challenges the industry and the research community. Darpa has kicked off the electronics resurgence initiative, or ERI, in response. The talk will review the status of the US semiconductor market, and the opportunities that exist that allow the US to lead in this next era.

About the speaker: Dr. Chappell is leading the new Electronics Research Initiative (ERI), which aims to ensure far-reaching improvements in electronics performance well beyond the limits of traditional scaling. The ERI plans to forge forward-looking collaborations among the commercial electronics community, defense industrial base, university researchers, and the DoD. Before joining DARPA, Dr. Chappell served as a professor in the ECE Department of Purdue University, where he led the Integrated Design of Electromagnetically-Applied Systems (IDEAS) Laboratory. Dr. Chappell received his BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering, all from the University of Michigan.

November 8 plenary (8:45am EST): "Computing in the Cambrian Era" - Dr. Paolo Faraboschi, Vice President and Fellow, Hewlett Packard Enterprise

About the speaker: Dr. Faraboschi is currently leading HPE’s exascale computing research, with interests at the intersection of system architecture and software. He was previously the lead of The Machine hardware architecture, researching memory-driven computing for big data. He is an IEEE Fellow for “contributions to embedded processor architecture and system-on-chip technology”, an active member of the computer architecture community, author of 30 patents, over 100 publications, and the book “Embedded Computing: a VLIW approach”. Before joining HP in 1994, he received a Ph.D. in EECS from the University of Genoa, Italy.

IEEE ICRC 2018 is part of the IEEE Rebooting Computing Week.
