IAP Workshop Testimonials
Professor Christos Kozyrakis, Stanford
- “As a starting point, I think of these IAP workshops as ‘Hot Chips meets ISCA’, i.e., an intersection of industry’s newest solutions in hardware (Hot Chips) with academic research in computer architecture (ISCA); but more so, these workshops additionally cover new subsystems and applications, and in a smaller venue where it is easy to discuss ideas and cross-cutting approaches with colleagues.”
Professor Heiner Litz, UC Santa Cruz
"The IAP workshops represent extremely valuable events for all attendees including industry members, students and faculty. On my side, multiple project collaborations and student internships have evolved from these meetings leading to a win-win-win situation for all participants.”
Ana Klimovic, PhD student, Stanford
- “I have attended three IAP workshops and I am consistently impressed by the quality of the talks and the breadth of the topics covered. These workshops bring top-tier industry and academia together to discuss cutting-edge research challenges. It is a great opportunity to exchange ideas and get inspiration for new research opportunities."
Nathan Pemberton, PhD student, UC Berkeley
"IAP workshops provide a valuable chance to explore emerging research topics with a focused group of participants, and without all the time/effort of a full-scale conference. Instead of rushing from talk to talk, you can slow down and dive deep into a few topics with experts in the field."
Support the IAP? Would it be a ridiculous idea for your company to
support a unique tech forum that brings together academia and industry under your company's banner?
