The Hot Chips conference was held in August 2002, and the presentations from the event were recently released online. The symposium was centered on high performance processors and the technologies used to design them. Many presentations are from key industry representatives who described cutting-edge microarchitectures and implementations such as the Itanium 2, GeForce4, and more. Others are from academia, like one that describes the trends and challenges of microlithography. Over 25 presentations are available, and more from previous years can also be accessed.
