As you all likely already know, ISCA is going to be taking place virtually
due to the COVID-19 pandemic. See https://iscaconf.org/isca2020/ for more
On the plus side, we believe this will make the gem5 workshop more
inclusive! Rather than limiting attendees to those that can travel to
Valencia, anyone will be able to participate!
We are making the following changes to the original call for abstracts
(original call below):
1) The deadline for submitting an abstract is now May 1st. You can still
use the following link to submit an abstract:
2) For accepted abstracts, you will be asked to produce a short video and a
blog post for the gem5 blog. In the week leading up to the workshop, we
will advertise all of the accepted works.
3) We will hold a synchronous virtual Q&A session (or sessions) during the
week of June 1st (the original time when ISCA was scheduled). During
these session(s), we will ask the authors of the accepted works to attend
to encourage discussion with the broader gem5 community. Specific times for
these will be announced soon. We will work with the community to choose a
time or times that are inclusive to those in different time zones.
Update on the gem5 Tutorial: Similarly for the gem5 tutorial, we will post
videos before the week of June 1st and hold session(s) for Q&A the week of
Thanks for being flexible! We look forward to your submissions!

> The gem5 community is excited to announce the 3rd gem5 Users’ workshop
> held in conjunction with ISCA 2020 in Valencia, Spain. The goal of the
> workshop is to provide a forum to discuss what is going on in the

> can continue to make gem5 a successful community-supported simulation
> framework. The workshop will be a half day in the afternoon of May 30.
> The workshop will follow a half-day “Learning gem5” tutorial.
> The workshop will include a keynote presentation “RE-gem5 and gem5-20:
> Past, Present, and Future of the gem5 Community Infrastructure.”

> an abstract is April 10th and we will send notifications by April 14th
