ICRC 2022

7th IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing
8-9 December 2022
San Francisco, CA, USA

The 7th IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing (ICRC 2022) was held from December 8th-9th 2022 in San Francisco, in conjunction with IEDM. The ICRC 2022 general chair was Tom Conte of Georgia Tech and the technical programme chair was Matthew Marinella of Arizona State University. The full committee is available here.

ICRC grew out of the IEEE Rebooting Computing Initiative (RCI), which was founded in 2012 to catalyze rethinking of the computer at all levels of the technology stack. The Rebooting Computing community represents multiple IEEE Societies and Councils, and the membership in the technical community is over two thousand. For more information on the RCI please visit the Rebooting Computing Portal (rebootingcomputing.ieee.org). In its 7th year, the IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing is the premier venue for forward-looking research across the computing stack, including novel materials, devices, circuits, algorithms and languages, system software, system and network architectures. This is an interdisciplinary conference that has participation from a broad technical community and work encompassing co-design across the computing stack is particularly encouraged. Bridging analog and neural computing, reversible and quantum computing, and other new architectures, the broad scope of ICRC extends to many areas of interest, including harnessing novel device physics and materials for energy efficiency, performance, density, and unique computing capabilities.
