High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation (HiPEAC)

The proposed HiPEAC network of excellence is a follow-up of an existing network and wants (i) to steer and to increase the European research in computing systems (ii) to improve the quality of the European computing systems research, and (iii) to create a visible and integrated pan-European community in computing systems. The network is structured along four programs. The membership program aims at growing the network. It will focus on the creation of a vibrant industrial membership, and it will reach out to the companies and academics in the new member states. It wants to increasingly organize events in new member states. The mobility program aims at bringing the partners and the members closer together. The mobility program supports two types of mobility: (i) exchanges of one to three months like internships, collaboration grants, mini-sabbaticals, and (ii) public networking events like computing systems weeks, sometimes collocated with other events (project meetings, conference, ...). The research coordination program aims at coordinating the joint research between the HiPEAC members. A tangible result of the research coordination is the bi-annual HiPEAC vision. It also wants to support the European low-power industry by promoting their platform ecosystem and it wants to proactively prepare the HiPEAC community for the impact of technological evolutions on computing systems (like photonics, new memory types, ...). It also runs a set of thematic workgroups on the different technical challenges and solutions from the HiPEAC roadmap. The visibility program manages all the public activities of the network such as the conference, the summer school, the website, the newsletter, the award program, the dissemination of research results, ... It wants (i) to proactively approach the specialized press, (ii) to grow the conference into a much bigger event, (iii) to make the HiPEAC institutions more attractive for top talent by creating a job portal.
