Final Submission Deadline
February 20, 2023

The FireSim and Chipyard user and developer community has experienced rapid growth, with significant cross-institution user and developer collaborations. This full-day workshop on March 26 at ASPLOS 2023 aims to bring together these communities to help drive the future direction of this ecosystem and spawn new collaborations.

This workshop will feature a combination of submitted talks and invited keynotes from academic and industrial users of FireSim and Chipyard, across areas like computer architecture, systems, programming languages, and VLSI research/development. We hope that the presentations in this workshop will inspire lively discussion of FireSim/Chipyard governance, feature roadmaps, outreach activities, host platform specifications, and more.
