ADEPT Lab End of Project Event

The ADEPT Laboratory started in 2017 as a 5-year research project with the goal of dramatically improving computing capability by reducing the cost and risk of designing custom silicon for new application areas.  Our integrated 5-year mission cut across applications, programming systems, architecture, and hardware design and verification methodologies.  We hope you can join us in celebrating the successes we’ve achieved on our goals as we enter the sunset of this remarkable project.

The end of project event will be on Thursday, December 9, 2021 from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM.  Talks will be given online, followed by an in-person reception from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM in the University Club at the California Memorial Stadium , Berkeley.  Please Note: You must be registered to attend the reception. Proof of vaccination and masks will be required.
