Data Movement Acceleration Event [Nov 4, 2022]

This event offers several in-depth presentations around data movement and data access for accelerators. This will be the first live event where we can meet each other in person. We have scheduled several time slots i n the event (lunch, posters, break, round table and drinks) to meet other engineers and researchers working with hardware acceleration and to exchange ideas. 

The event will be hosted in SURF Utrecht at the Moreelsepark 48, on Nov 4, 2022, 12:00 – 17:00. Please register for the event using the following link. You may forward this registration link to your colleagues in the field.

We ask every participant, on voluntary basis, to bring a poster (A3 or A4 format) to present the topics that you are working on to the other participants. The posters will be on display during lunch, coffee break and drinks to spark interest and start conversations.
