Configure Your Research Platform: Infrastructure Needs for Embedded and Heterogeneous Computing

Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto

Take part in a one-day interactive seminar to explore heterogeneous computing implementations from small, low power sensor nodes, to network edge devices, to the cloud.

Specific infrastructure topics include needs and specifications for tools and platforms for:

  • Application-Specific Instruction Set Processors (ASIPs) and hardware accelerators
  • Open-source processor technology (RISC-V)
  • Cloud-based Heterogeneous Computing Cluster
  • Support for implementing Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning demonstrations

Presentations by CMC, academic and industry experts demonstrating proposed infrastructure and research opportunities.

Open discussions to provide feedback on product requirements and near-term infrastructure development and deployment to Canada’s National Design Network®.

By attending this seminar, you will:

  • Learn about lead client project opportunities, and how to enhance your research through early access to advanced technologies
  • Gain early knowledge of upcoming infrastructure in order to plan research activities
  • Influence technology selection (roadmap) and development activities
  • Share insights and experiences with others; explore collaboration opportunities.

Open to professors, research associates and graduate students at Canadian universities as well as industrial attendees who wish to provide input and advice.

The seminar will be split into a morning and afternoon session—come for either or both:

  • Morning session (10 am to noon): Processor Technologies (ASIPs, RISC-V, accelerators)
  • Lunch (noon to 1 pm)
  • Afternoon session (1 pm to 3 pm): Heterogeneous Computing in the Cloud
  • CNDN Technology Roadmap Consultation (3 pm to 3:30 pm)

Several locations maximize interactions and opportunities for feedback:
