Organizer: Sung-Mo (Steve) Kang, UC Santa Cruz, USA
Memristors and memristive devices have been recently realized in nanoscale. Several recent implementations have brought forth the potential for revolutions in non-volatile storage and reconfigurable computing. This special session is specifically focused at using memristive devices for computing in programmable systems such as FPGAs.
Open Source Tools and Methodologies for Research
Organizer: Jose Renau, UC Santa Cruz, USA
Open source tools enable both academia and industry to research, develop, and share common platforms in complex research tasks. However, most often these open source tools and methodologies are unsung and, in fact, difficult to publish. This special session is specifically focused at recognizing the most important and useful open source tools and methodologies that aid research.
