This year in particular, the workshop will focus on the next generation of the CASPER toolflow "JASPER" and the hardware it is initially designed to support.

The workshop runs for one week, the 14th - 18th August, and consists of presentations in the morning, followed by various hands-on tutorials and break out sessions in the afternoon.
