Abstract:

The first workshop on 3-D memories was held March 12-13, 1990, in Snowbird, Utah. The intent of the workshop was to bring together members of the optical storage and materials, computer architectures, and optoelectronic device communities to discuss issues associated with 3-D storage systems for various high-performance computers. The common concern among the diverse set of about 25 workshop participants was that storage is becoming a major limitation in terms of inputoutput bandwidth and capacity to achieving higher system performance, and will impede the future development of high performance computer system. The question was if and how 3-D memories can provide better storage devices.
