SystemX Alliance 2021 (Virtual) Spring Workshop

Future Directions of Semiconductor Technology - from Atoms to Applications
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.

Date and Time: 
Wednesday, June 2, 2021 - 9:00am to 12:00pm
Thursday, June 3, 2021 - 9:00am to 12:00pm
Monday, June 7, 2021 - 4:00pm to 7:00pm

Beyond IID 8

various (see below)
Abstract / Description: 


Description: The present workshop, the eighth in a series that started in 2013 in Cambridge, will bring together specialists and students of classical and quantum Shannon theory, of cryptography, mathematical physics, thermodynamics, etc., in the hope to foster collaboration in this exciting field of one-shot information theory and its applications. The plan is to have a modest number of talks over the course of the week. Participation is open to all.


  • The topics covered under "Beyond IID" include but are not limited to the following:
  • Finite block length coding
  • Second, third and fourth order analysis
  • Strong converses
  • Quantum ​Shannon theory
  • Cryptography and quantum cryptography
  • New information tasks
  • One-shot information theory and unstructured channels
  • Information spectrum method
  • Entropy inequalities
  • Non-standard entropies (e.g. Rényi entropies, min-entropy, ...)
  • Matrix analysis
  • Thermodynamics
  • Resource theories of asymmetry
  • Generalized resource theories
  • Physics of information


"Beyond IID in Information Theory" started as a workshop in Cambridge, UK seven years ago, organized by Nilanjana Datta and Renato Renner as a forum for the growing interest in information theoretic problems and techniques beyond the strict asymptotic limit, and aimed at bringing together researchers from a range of different backgrounds, ranging from coding theory, Shannon theory in the finite block length regime, one-shot information theory, cryptography and quantum information, all the way to quantum thermodynamics and other resource theories.

Emerging Memory and Artificial Intelligence (EMAI) 2019 Workshop

EMAI '19 Workshop
Abstract / Description: 

A one-day workshop at Stanford University on August 29, 2019, put on by the Stanford Center for Magnetic Nanotechnology and Coughlin Associates, features invited expert speakers to talk about various emerging non-volatile memories and how they will enable the next generation of artificial intelligence (AI) devices in the home, in the factory and in industry. The conference URL is:

Memories that will be discussed include Magnetic Random Access Memory (MRAM), Resistive RAM (RRAM), Ferroelectric RAM (FRAM) and Phase Change Memory (PCM). These memories are now available as discrete as well as embedded non-volatile memories and will be the basis of a new generation of devices, working in devices and on the network edge, as well as in data centers. These memories will enable AI inference engines that enable voice recognition, image recognition and system level optimization, all with minimal power utilization compared to conventional volatile memories.

Space is limited for this workshop so register early to ensure that you can come.
