The Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) are hosting the RISC-V Workshop in Barcelona, gathering the open source processor design community to share RISC-V updates, projects and implementations. Founded in 2015, the RISC-V Foundation comprises more than 100 members building the first open, collaborative community of software and hardware innovators powering innovation at the edge forward. The workshop will take place at the UPC Vertex Auditorium from Monday 7 of May to Thursday 10. More than 400 delegates from all over the world will be attending this event to explore this disruptive technology, learn about its benefits, and understand the commercial implications for the industry. Speaking sessions include international computing luminaries from industry, such as supercomputing pioneer Steve Wallach, and from academia, such as Mateo Valero, professor at the Computer Architecture Department and director of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center.
