Professor Jason Cong delivered a keynote speech “Democratizing Customized Computing” at MICRO’22 on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2022, in Chicago.  His talk covered the latest research on automated accelerator synthesis and customized computing on FPGAs. As FPGAs have been the top of a lot of research in recent years, his presentation ranged from microarchitecture guided optimization, such as automated generation of highly optimized systolic arrays and stencil computation engines, to more general source-to-source transformation derived from graph-based neural networks and meta learning, and finally to latency-insensitive system-level integration.  His concluding remarks invite a community-wide effort in this direction.  The full presentation is available at

The IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture® is the premier forum for presenting, discussing, and debating innovative microarchitecture ideas and techniques for advanced computing and communication systems. This symposium brings together researchers in fields related to microarchitecture, compilers, chips, and systems for technical exchange on traditional microarchitecture topics and emerging research areas.
