This Workshop has been held for more than twenty-five years and has gained industry attention for the excellence of keynote presentations and as a principal forum for first announcements of important technology developments. Keynote presentations in the last five years have been given by speakers from AMD, Collins Aerospace, Georgia Institute of Technology, HPE/Hewlett Packard Laboratories, HP Systems Research Labs, IBM Corporation, Intel Corporation, Microsoft, Qualcomm Technologies, Samsung (Korea), Santa Clara University, The Citadel, and University of Colorado. This workshop moved in 2019 to the Microsoft Corporation Conference Center in Redmond WA  with resounding success  and we will use the same facility again for 2022.

The headquarters hotel will be the Seattle Marriott Redmond, with a reduced Workshop attendee rate of $195/night for early registrations. The Marriott Redmond is a full-service Marriott hotel and we will use this hotel for additional networking opportunities in the evenings.

Speakers and attendees are asked to attend the entire Workshop to encourage greater interaction between registered attendees. Every year, authors and attendees find this workshop format to be a highly effective forum for announcement of new developments and excellent networking between all participants. The reduced registration fee for speakers makes active participation in the program even more beneficial. Activities beyond the technical program, including meals, breaks, and exhibit hours, are focused on maximizing networking effectiveness. This Workshop includes three breakfasts, three lunches, and two dinners; this is to enhance our opportunities for one-on-one and group discussions. Attendees typically view individual discussions during this event to be a critical aspect of attendance and participation  to a much greater extent than in a typical technical conference.

Detailed schedule of presenters to be released soon.
