The open nature of the RISC-V ecosystem[1][2] has allowed contributions
from both academia and industry to lead to an unprecedented number of
new hardware design proposals in a very short time span.  Linux support
is the key to enabling these new hardware options[3].

The primary objective of the RISC-V microconference at Plumbers is to
initiate a community-wide discussion about the design problems/ideas for
different Linux kernel features that will lead to a better, stable
kernel for RISC-V.

Topics for this microconference include:

   - The State of RISC-V Software
   - Multi-level interrupt design in RISC-V
   - Power Management in RISC-V
   - RISC-V Platform Specification Kick-Off
   - RISC-V Hypervisor Spec - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
   - Experiences from Andes Technology

If you’re interested in participating in this microconference[4] or have
other topics to propose,  please contact Palmer Dabbelt
(palmer at sifive.com) or Atish Patra (atish.patra at wdc.com).

LPC[5] will be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada from Tuesday,
November 13 through Thursday, November 15.

We hope to see you there!
