Sampa is an inter-disciplinary group that explores research crossing multiple layers of the system stack, from hardware to programming languages and applications. Our research is motivated by new device technologies and new applications. We are part of the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington. We work closely with the PLSE and Syslab folks.
Sampa’s going formal: congrats to James, Luis, Dan, and Emina on their Optimal Program Synthesis paper being accepted to POPL 2016! This is Luis’s first foray into POPL, but don’t worry, the paper still has plenty of plots.
The core Grappa paper just won Best Paper at USENIX ATC! Congratulations to the team!
We just received a new large NSF grant to explore approximate computing across the system stack. We will make great use of it!
We just ran a Workshop on Approximate Computing (WAX) w/ FCRC. It was a smashing success!
Adrian successfully defended his thesis and will join the faculty at Cornell University after a year at MSR. Congratulations, Adrian!! We are all very proud!
Our work is supported by the National Science Foundation, the state of Washington, the C-FAR Center for Future Architectures, DARPA, and generous gifts from Microsoft, Intel, Google, Qualcomm and NetApp.
