Join the RISC-V Revolution!

Attend the RISC-V Workshop Barcelona and be part of the disruptive force transforming the microprocessor IP market through open standard collaboration

The RISC-V Workshop Barcelona

The microprocessor IP market is being disrupted, and RISC-V is fast gaining support as an attractive license-free approach to architecture. This open standard collaboration will transform and reshape established world order of the silicon market, and the implications of this change will resonate from Silicon Valley to Silicon Fenn and beyond.

Now is the time to explore this disruptive technology, learn about its benefits, and understand the commercial implications for the strategy of your company and for those of your competitors.

Join the expansive and international RISC-V ecosystem in Barcelona this May to discuss current and prospective RISC-V projects and implementations, as well as influence the future evolution of the instruction set architecture (ISA).

What to Expect

RISC-V ISA Extensions Update

A half-day of tutorials on May 7 from the working groups of the RISC-V technical committee on the latest updates around such topics as Base ISA Ratification, BitManip, Compliance, Debug, Formal Spec, Memory Model, Opcode Space Management, Privilege Spec, Security, Software Toolchain and/or Vector Extensions.

2 Day Workshop

Two full days of presentations (May 8 - 9) on RISC-V architecture, commercial and open-source implementations, software and silicon, vectors and security, applications and accelerators, simulation infrastructure and much more. Full program to be released ahead of the event.

Leaders in the Ecosystem

The speaking lineup will include leaders from the major players in the RISC-V ecosystem, including the leading technology companies and research institutions driving the RISC-V ISA specification.

Parties, Networking & Demo Zone

No RISC-V workshop is complete without our networking reception with poster sessions and demos. Mix, mingle and share a drink with your peers, while learning about the latest implementations and updates of the technology. Plus stop by the demo zone with live product and service demos and explore the latest innovations on the market.

Tour the Barcelona Supercomputing Center!

Join your fellow attendees on one of several tours of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center, during our networking reception.  The BSC is located in a former chapel and was featured in Dan Brown's science fiction thriller origin.

Member Meetings

Reserved for members of the RISC-V Foundation. Final member meeting agenda to be published prior to the event.
