The goal of the project is to improve the state-of-the-art in computer architecture by developing new mechanisms to solve an important problem in this area. In the process you will learn how to critically analyze related work, conduct research, evaluate new ideas, and present and write well. A handout with project proposal ideas will be distributed in the class. You can propose your own project, but the project needs to be approved by the instructor. Please make appointments with the instructor to discuss the project idea.
