This workshop, made possible by NSF funding through the Computer Systems Architecture program, was held with the attendees below.  Overall, the panel concluded that developing new benchmarks, modular simulation frameworks, and new analytic models is essential to maintain the rate of innovation that the computer architecture community requires.  NSF funding for these research efforts is vital.

This workshop was supported by a grant from NSF, CCR-0135209, but any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.
