2014 USENIX Vail Computer Elements Workshop

The USENIX Vail Computer Elements Workshop is a unique four day workshop that has been around for 43 years serving leading architects of the computer industry. This intentionally small workshop is intended to allow a lively interaction between the participants and the speakers. The agenda is 100% invited technical talks and the audience is mostly previous speakers. Past keynotes have been Seymour Cray, Gordon Moore, Burton Smith, and Ivan Sutherland.

This year marks the 44 year of the workshop. The workshop will be held June 22-25, 2014 at the Christiania at Vail.

The Program Chair is Mark S. Miller. This year's sessions are:

Processors Yahya Sotoudeh and Pete Wilson
Wireless and Networking Ed Callaway and Don Banks
Imaging and Signal Processing Hirofumi Sumi and Makoto Ikeda
Consumer Electronics Atsushi Hasegawa and Yoshio Masubuchi
