"More than ever, we need collaboration to find solutions for the grand challenges in computing", stated HiPEAC coordinator Koen de Bosschere of Ghent University. "Only interdisciplinary teams consisting of computer architects and software experts from industry and academia will be able to find solutions to create the next generation of computing systems. This conference is the yearly mega-brainstorm for the European computing systems community", he added.
HiPEAC's role as a hub for leading thinkers is in evidence with a comprehensive programme of activities, highlighting how European research is providing answers to some of the thorniest challenges in embedded and high-performance computing. Keynotes from well-known experts Ruby Lee, Princeton University; Krisztian Flautner, ARM; and Valentina Salapura, IBM will discuss security-aware architecture, the Internet of Things and high-availability cloud.
A series of 42 workshops and tutorials will present, among other things:
The conference will also see the launch of the latest incarnation of the HiPEAC project, now in its 11th year, which will build on past successes by offering members communications and recruitment services to ensure the potential of European research is fully realized. It will highlight HiPEAC's central role as an engine for translating research into value, featuring spin-off companies from European projects, such as software specialist emmtrix Technologies commercializing the results of the ALMA project, as well as the winners of the HiPEAC Tech Transfer Awards. A recruitment booth will be available at the conference, helping companies match European talent to their needs.
