We are happy to announce the gem5 bootcamp 2024.

The bootcamp spans five full days, featuring an engaging workshop focused on learning gem5. The workshop is designed to be inclusive, assuming no prior experience with gem5. The goal is to equip participants with a strong foundation in gem5 for conducting advanced research in computer architecture.

The schedule accommodates both students and professionals. Students are encouraged to participate for the entire five days, while professionals are targeted for a three-day attendance from Tuesday to Thursday. The first day (Monday) is dedicated to introducing gem5 to students and familiarizing them with the environment. Days 2 through 4 cover more advanced aspects of gem5 development. The final day (Friday) focuses on practical exercises, including writing tests and contributing to gem5.

The workshop will give attendees the opportunity to:

  • Learn how to create SimObjects.
  • Learn how to use the gem5 Standard Library to create simulations.
  • Familiarize themselves with gem5-resources.
  • Understand the gem5 statistics module and how to use it in experiments.
  • Create full system simulations capable of running real-world operating systems and software benchmarks.
  • Network with others in the computer architecture research community.
  • And much, much more!
