Workshop on Embedded Systems and Computer Architecture 2019

May 20 to May 24, 2019


Foundation on embedded systems and computer architecture is the key to build or design any system. The aim of this workshop is reinforce the foundation and introduce advanced topic in this area. Above all, a significant focus will be on hands-on experiments. Participants will design simulators, will work with established simulators, and work with hardware. No prerequisite knowledge is required to understand things, except basic courses in digital design and computer architecture. The workshop will help the participants to make a base in computer architecture research.

Dates of the workshop: 20 May 2019 to 24 May 2019

Venue: Ramanujan Block, IIT Ropar, Permanent campus, Rupnagar, Punjab.
