Cross-layer Computing Summer School: Circuits to System
The Summer School workshop on Computer Architecture and Circuits will be held on August 16-17, 2018 at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. This workshop is primarily targeted at women and under-represented minorities who are currently enrolled in computer science or computer engineering graduate programs with an interest in computer architecture and circuit research.
This workshop will cover emerging topics in computer architecture and circuit developments to give students a broad view of state-of-the-art development at intersection of hardware and software. We provide students with vision and assistance on cross-disciplinary research, getting started on research, networking, finding internships and career planning.
