Computer Architecture & Engineering (ARC)


Research to address next generation issues in computer architecture to address the grand challenge of parallel computation, bringing in techniques from other fields (e.g. machine learning for high impact optimizations), ideas for architecture based on novel substrates, power budget issues, micro-architectural circuit level issues, and architectural issues in the development of sensor networks.
