CRNCH Summit

CRNCH SUMMIT - February 3-4, 2022

The Georgia Institute of Technology's CRNCH (Center for Research into Novel Computing Hierarchies) is tasked with finding novel ways to compute by rethinking every level of the computing stack. CRNCH combines experts from all disciplines, from device and materials, through circuits and architecture, to language, software and application experts. CRNCH also includes hardware spanning from memory-centric systems to neuromorphic chips. This novel approach is what makes the Georgia Tech CRNCH approach to post-Moore computing so unique among academic centers.

In the spirit of sharing ideas and exchanging information, CRNCH hosts this invitational meeting on the Georgia Tech campus in Atlanta. As with many events, we will plan to hold a virtual event in 2022 and hopefully resume physical events in the future. 

CRNCH 2022 Summit Logistics

All sessions for the summit were held on Microsoft Teams in one main session. The poster session was held using Zoom to take advantage of their breakout room capabilities (see details below)! This year we had all live talks and panels. Where we have been given permission, we will post these videos using GT hosting along with related slides on our CRNCH Github repo.
