The Berkeley Symposium on Energy Efficient Electronic Systems was established in 2009 with the goal of bringing together researchers from around the world working on breakthroughs in next generation low-energy information processing systems. In 2017, the Berkeley Symposium joined forces with the Steep Transistors Workshop with the goal of further expanding its reach and impact. The joint event presented a unique forum for speakers, from academia, industry, and government laboratories, to share their perspectives, discuss issues, and present new approaches.
This year’s joint two-day event included keynote presentations, invited and contributed talks, as well as a poster session (see Program). This structure enabled attendees to gain a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities in low-energy information processing systems, extending from new low-power nanoelectronic devices, through circuit design, chip-scale architecture, short-range interconnects, long-range interconnect, networks, software, storage systems, servers data centers and supercomputers.
The IEEE Electron Device Society became a technical co-sponsor in 2013.
