SiFive is Teaming with Many of the Most Prestigious Universities in South America to Engage Academia in the RISC-V Ecosystem!

We’re confirming seats in São Paulo, Porto Alegre, Montevideo, Buenos Aires and Bucaramanga for the South American leg of our worldwide 2019 SiFive Tech Symposiums and Workshops. These five events will be focused heavily on academia, which is a key focus for SiFive. In fact, we are co-hosting these events with many of the most prestigious universities including the Polytechnic Schools of São Paulo (Poli-USP), the Federal University of Rio

Grande do Sul (UFRGS), the Universidad Católica del Uruguay (UCU), the University of Bueno Aires (UBA), the Universidad Industrial de Santander (UIS), and the Integrated Systems Research Group Onchip at Universidad Industrial de Santander. Our partners include Centro Interdisciplinar em Tecnologias Interativas (CITI-USP), the Department of Electronic Systems Engineering at the Polytechnic School of the University of São Paulo (PSI-EPUSP), and IEEE Uruguay and Colombia Section. We are very proud to have many renowned professors and researchers on the schedule to present.

All of the SiFive Tech Symposiums have been significantly instrumental in engaging the hardware community in the RISC-V ecosystem, and spearheading the emergence of new applications. We are constantly in awe of the brilliant minds that convene at these events. We thrive on watching intense conversations and the sharing of ideas between those already entrenched in RISC-V and others who still learning and exploring.

In addition to presentations by industry veterans and academic luminaries, there will presentations by the SiFive team on RISC-V developments tools, platforms, core IP and SoC IP.

Each event will feature a hands-on workshop that offers attendees the unique opportunity to configure their own RISC-V core and bring up on an FPGA.

Attendance is free, but registration is required.
