Hot Chips is the annual showcase of the latest developments in the field of high performance microchips and computer architecture. Here you will find the main facts about the upcoming Hot Chips 2023 Symposium.
What is Hot Chips?
Hot Chips (HCS) is one of the premier events for innovation in microprocessors, computer architecture and high performance computing. This conference has been held in the Silicon Valley since 1989 by the IEEE Computer Society with the participation of the Special Group on Computer Architecture of the Association for Computing Machinery (SIGARCH) and other institutions and companies, including major chip manufacturers. Hot Chips is a congress of industry professionals and has limited capacity to several hundred top engineers, chip designers, analysts and journalists. In addition to discussions, presentations and panels, each year the conference program also includes a training course for students from all over the world.
When and where is Hot Chips 2023?
Hot Chips 2023 takes place August 27, 28 and 29, 2023 at the Dinkelspiel Auditorium on the Stanford University Conference. The previous, 34th symposium was held only in a virtual format, but this year the event will have a hybrid format, which means that part of the participants will attend it physically, while the other part will participate online. Virtual access includes conference videos, presentation PDFs, and Slack channels on all three days of the conference.
What's in the program of Hot Chips 2023?
Hot Chip 2023 is held with the support and participation of chip-building leaders such as Intel, AMD, NVIDIA, CEVA, Arm, etc. The symposium traditionally shows the newest and most powerful chips and highlights the main trends in computing, and this year they will be embedded and reconfigurable processors, quantum computing, nanostructures, wireless chips, networking/secure processors and advanced packaging technologies.
August 27 is a school day which will include two training courses. August 28 and 29 will be the days of the main part of the conference. The main topic of the first day of the main part of the conference will be the CPU. Intel is expected to dedicate its presentations to its Xeon energy efficient architecture and its Meteor Lake CPU generation, as well as announce the development of optical solutions for building a 1 Tbps network. Qualcomm will focus on its latest Neoverse V2 core microarchitecture, while AMD will make a big presentation of the Zen 4 processor core and the possibilities it opens up for server processors and machine learning.
The second day of the main symposium program will converge on machine learning and artificial intelligence, and here, among other topics, AMD and Intel will showcase their latest developments in the Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), which serve for a variety of AI systems, such as Microsoft's search algorithm, Bing. In particular, Intel will show the latest Agilex-9 Direct RF FPGA. NVIDIA will showcase its latest GPU, DPU and CPU breakthroughs including its BlueField DPU, Hopper GPU and Grace CPU architectures, as well as the DGX GH200 AI Supercomputer, etc.
