HDT 2019

2nd Workshop on Hardware Design and Theory

HDT is a one-day workshop that aims at bridging between theory and design of hardware. It puts special emphasis on the multitude of connections between the theory of distributed computing and hardware design, apparent in topics such as time and causality, synchronization, and fault-tolerance. The goal is to present questions and results at the forefront of current research and spark a discussion between the fields. The program consists of several invited talks, which target a general CS audience.

HDT will be held on Friday, October 18, 2019 in Budapest, Hungary, and will be co-located with DISC 2019. The workshop is chaired by Moti Medina and Andrey Mokhov. For information on registration, please go to the DISC 2019 website.
