RISC-V microconference accepted for Linux Plumbers Conference

The open nature of the RISC-V ecosystem has allowed contributions from both academia and industry to lead to an unprecedented number of new hardware design proposals in a very short time span. Linux support is the key to enabling these new hardware options.

The primary objective of the RISC-V microconference at Plumbers is to initiate a community-wide discussion about the design problems/ideas for different Linux kernel features that will lead to a better, stable kernel for RISC-V.

Topics for this microconference include:

  • The State of RISC-V Software
  • Multi-level interrupt design in RISC-V
  • Power Management in RISC-V
  • RISC-V Platform Specification Kick-Off
  • RISC-V Hypervisor Spec – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
  • Experiences from Andes Technology

If you’re interested in participating in this microconference or have other topics to propose, please contact Palmer Dabbelt (palmer@sifive.com) or Atish Patra (atish.patra@wdc.com).

LPC will be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada from Tuesday, November 13 through Thursday, November 15.

We hope to see you there!
