The ACM sponsored TAU series of workshops provide an informal forum for practitioners and researchers working on temporal aspects of digital systems to disseminate early work and engage in a free discussion of ideas. The twenty-third in the TAU series, the TAU 2016 workshop emphasizes novel aspects of timing and power analysis as well as optimization with special invited talks.
* TAU 2016 was held at Hilton Sonoma Wine Country, Santa Rosa, California, USA between March 10-11, 2016. The workshop has concluded for 2016. TAU thanks all attendees and sponsors for a successful event and looks forward to an equally exciting workshop in 2017 (details to be posted after June 2016).
