Recently system integrators have dramatically increased their efforts in heterogeneous computing by integrating heterogeneous cores on die (ARM), utilizing general purpose GPUs (NVIDIA), combining CPUs and GPUs on same die(Intel, AMD), leveraging FPGAs (Altera, Xilinx), integrating CPUs with FPGAs (Xilinx), and coupling FPGAs and CPUs in thesame package (IBM-Altera,...

HiPEAC is a coordination and support action (CSA) that aims to structure and connect the European academic and industrialresearch and innovation communities in computing systems (i) by increasing the industrial membership, (ii) by integrating theEuropean innovation community, (iii) by organising activities to connect the research and innovation communities, (iv) bystimulating...

We are entering the Cyber-Physical age, in which both objects and people will become nodes of the same digital network for exchanging information. Therefore, in our imaginary, the general expectation is that things or systems will become somewhat smart as people, allowing rapid and close interactions not only system-system, but also human-system, system-human.

SARC was an integrated project concerned with long term research in advanced computer architecture. It focused on a systematic scalable approach to systems design ranging from small energy critical embedded systems right up to large scale networked data servers. It came at a stage where, for the first time, we were unable to increase clock frequency at the same rate as we...
