In 2012, NVMW took its banquet to the Birch Aquarium on the UCSD campus. It offers spectacular views of the sunset outside and spectacular views of sealife inside.
The NVMW attracts researchers from both academia and industry and provides a unique setting for discussion, formation of collaboration, and hearing about the latest developments in persistent memory technologies and systems. It’s also a great place to network and identify future employers and employees.
UC San Diego has hosted the NVMW since the first workshop in 2009. The workshop was started by Steven Swanson, Director of the Non-Volatile Research Lab and Paul Siegel who directed the Center for Magnetic Recording Research (CMRR). CMRR has since become the Center for Memory and Recording Research.
In 2015 and 2016, we held the workshop banquet at Mister A’s, one of the premier restaurants in San Diego. It features amazing views of downtown and the unique opportunity to look down on planes on their approach to San Diego’s airport.
With the support of our generous sponsors, the NVMW has provided over 500 travel grants to students to help cover the cost of attending. If you are interested in receiving a travel grant, check back after the paper decision deadline.
