WCAE provides a forum for educators in computer architecture to discuss and share their experiences and teaching philosophy. Past WCAEs have been held in conjunction with HPCA, ISCA, and Micro. Over 210 papers on computer architecture education have been presented at the workshop since its inception in 1995. Participants will come away from the workshop with new ideas on delivering courses in computer architecture. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following.
