Call for Abstracts and Participation: RoboARCH at MICRO 2022
Workshop on Robotics Acceleration with Computing Hardware (RoboARCH)
October 2, 2022 in Chicago, IL
Co-located with the IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture (MICRO)
Robotics is pushing the limits of conventional computing. Autonomous robots must operate untethered in dynamic and unpredictable environments, requiring many robotics software applications to run online in real-time. Conventional CPU systems are proving unable to deliver the high performance needed by essential latency-critical robotics applications. This is a call to action for researchers across academia and industry: we must leverage nontraditional computing hardware (e.g., custom accelerator ASICs, FPGAs, and GPUs) and navigate enormous design spaces spanning across algorithms, hardware, and physical robot parameters in order to design new high performance systems enabling critical tasks in robotics. This workshop aims to gather pioneers and innovators working at the intersection of robotics and computer architecture, and to provide an introduction to this exciting emerging field to the computer architecture community.
We welcome submission of 1-page abstracts on any topic related to accelerating robotics applications (e.g., computer vision, mapping, localization, motion planning, control, and end-to-end learning, for all robotics systems) using nontraditional computing hardware (e.g., ASICs, FPGAs, GPUs), as well as real-time, distributed, cloud, and edge computing systems that might be leveraged by robotics platforms. We especially encourage early work, and work-in-progress.
Accepted authors will be invited to present a 2-minute single-slide lightning talk during the main program and a poster at the poster sessions. Submissions are anonymous, so please remove author names and all identifying information from the submission.
