CRNCH Summit 2022

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 hosted the 5th annual CRNCH Summit as a virtual event.

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. This year we had all live talks and panels. Where we have been given permission, we have posted these videos using GT hosting along with related slides on our CRNCH Github repo.
