2nd Workshop on Heterogeneous Memory Systems (HMEM 2021)

Collocated with ICS2021


The 2nd Workshop on Heterogeneous Memory Systems (HMEM 2021) is held virtually on June 18, 10.00-14.00 EDT / 16.00-20.00 CEST.

Following a successful inaugural edition at ICS 2020, the 2nd HMEM workshop serves as a forum to present and discuss ongoing research around heterogeneous memory systems. The scope of the workshop encompasses all the layers of system and software stack, from computer architectures, operating system, middleware, programming models, runtime systems, tools, to applications.
