UW-Madison Virtual Computer Architecture Seminar for Fall 2020

All talks (but one) are on Tuesdays 4:00-5:00pmCT, but the speaker we'll stay around up to 30 more minutes for 'down by the podium' questions. Attendence is restricted by UW Zoom license to 300 attendees. If the speaker grants permission, talks will be recorded and posted here within a week of presentation.
