The First Workshop on Computer Architecture Research with RISC-V (CARRV) brings together researchers in fields related to computer architecture, compilers, and systems for technical exchange on using RISC-V in computer architecture research. Submission of early work is encouraged. The topics of specific interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

– RISC-V simulation/emulation infrastructures, including ports of existing infrastructures
– Easily modifiable RISC-V RTL cores to support research
– Whole-SoC simulators/emulators and/or models built around RISC-V
– RISC-V-based research prototypes
– Machine-readable formal models and verification methodologies
– Compiler toolchains and operating system ports to support systems research
– Security architecture research
– Memory model research
– Quantitative comparison of RISC-V with other ISAs

The workshop is intended to be highly interactive with an open session discussing experiences with using the current state of the RISC-V ecosystem for architecture research and what directions to take to improve it.
