Abstract / Description: 

For this workshop, we are gathering visionaries and leaders of industry and academia to give us their perspectives followed by an open discussion. The audience will be Stanford faculty and students, and members of the Stanford SystemX Alliance. All talks will be by-invitation only.

Background: Because there is a shift from 2D scaling to a plethora of new materials and new devices for further performance gains, plus a concomitant shift from system-on-chip (SoC) to heterogeneous integration, chiplet partitioning, and advanced packaging, the roadmap ahead for the semiconductor industry is not as straightforward as it was in the past. Yet, there is tremendous value to industry and academia to know what the future of semiconductor technology will look like, and use that knowledge to plan for the future. The goal of this workshop is to have a forum for sharing perspectives and viewpoints on what future may hold in their respective domains. It is hoped that everyone in the food chain will gain from understanding the opportunities and challenges of an abstraction layer above and an abstraction layer below.
