IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing (ICRC 2017)
8-9 November 2017
Washington, DC, USA
ICRC 2017 was part of the Rebooting Computing week which began with a meeting of the International Roadmap for Devices and Systems (IRDS, Nov. 6-7), then ICRC 2017 (Nov. 8-9), and ended with the first Industry Summit on the Future of Computing (Nov. 10). These were held at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Tysons Corner, Virginia.
The goal of the 2nd IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing was to discover and foster novel methodologies to reinvent computing technology, including new materials and physics, devices and circuits, system and network architectures, and algorithms and software.
Plenary talks were given on Neuromorphic Computing (Karlheinz Meier), DNA Computing (Luis Ceze), Quantum Computing (Robert Schoelkopf), and Architecture and Software for Novel Computing (Margaret Martonosi). Opening talks were given about US government research programs in future computing of DARPA (Hava Siegelmann) and Dept. of Energy (Robinson Pino). There were also special sessions on future electronic design automation and artificial intelligence.
A wide variety of invited and contributed presentations and posters were given at ICRC. A contest for Best Student Presentation was held, and won by Natesh Ganesh of the University of Massachusetts.
Videos of many of the talks at ICRC are available at IEEE.tv.
