IEEE Journal on Exploratory Solid-State Computational Devices and Circuits (JXCDC)

New open-access journal for novel devices and circuits for future computer systems. Papers are broadly read and highly cited, with rapid publication. Read the latest articles and submit your new research!


The Exascale Computing Project

Computing in Science and Engineering has a feature article on development plans of the US Department of Energy for a supercomputer with 1018 operations per second, 100 times more powerful than today’s supercomputers.


Special Report in IEEE Spectrum: Can We Copy the Brain?

Research into the structure and function of the brain is providing inspiration to a new generation of computer systems, which will enable faster and more efficient machine learning in future electronic devices.


Dark Silicon and Low-Power Computing

Recent generations of microprocessors have critical overheating issues, requiring large parts of the circuits to be turned off when not in use, hence “Dark Silicon”. Careful design enables maximizing system performance under these constraints.


Recent Progress in Quantum Computing

Recent developments in superconducting quantum computers by Google, D-Wave Systems, and IBM are discussed.


New White Papers from the International Roadmap for Devices and Systems

Reports by Technology Working Groups will be integrated into new technology roadmap to be issued by the end of 2017.


Special Issue of Computing in Science and Engineering on the implications of “The End of Moore’s Law”.

Contributions include both continued evolution and disruptive alternative technologies.


High Performance Computing Conference

Stanford University, Feb. 7-8, 2017. Videos and slides of most keynote talks are available here.


Micromotes: Millimeter-Scale Computers

University of Michigan researchers have developed ultra-small, ultra-low power (< 1mW) computers for application to mobile Internet of Things. The latest version incorporates neural networks with deep learning.


New Report from European Network on High-Performance Computing

HiPEAC Vision Report advocates reinvention of computing, and predicts “cyber-physical entanglement of the physical and virtual worlds”.


50th Anniversary of Computer Magazine

Special issue reviews the past and includes a set of Outlook articles on the Future of Computing.


Ensuring Long-Term US Leadership in Semiconductors

New White House Report on the Future of the US Semiconductor Industry, from President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST).


Supercomputing Conference SC16 held in Salt Lake City, Utah,
