Range of BSC research on show at HiPEAC19

21 January 2019

Taking place on 21-23 January in Valencia, this year’s HiPEAC conference puts the future of computing systems under the spotlight, at a time when all aspects of the computing stack are being re-evaluated in light of the inevitable end of Moore’s Law. Three plenary keynote talks, 26 workshops and 17 tutorials complement the main paper track and will cover the full compute continuum.

Researchers from Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) form a core part of the HiPEAC network, which numbers around 2,000 experts, and once again are playing a significant part in this major international event.

‘BSC has always played a central role in HiPEAC, and our partnership with this strategic international network is going from strength to strength,’ commented Professor Mateo Valero, director of BSC, co-founder and first coordinator of HiPEAC. ‘I’m delighted to see BSC researchers once again presenting their groundbreaking research in topics spanning the compute continuum and exploring a range of innovative architectures at the conference.’

Among the events featuring BSC researchers are the following:

Monday, 21 January

Tuesday, 22 January

· MCS: 7th International Workshop on Mixed Criticality Systems (MCS): Francisco J. Cazorla and Jaume Abella will present during this workshop
· Xavier Salazar is hosting the STEM Student Day, introducing and engineering students to HiPEAC
· The Vision and roadmaps session will feature the Eurolab4HPC roadmap, coauthored by Paul Carpenter


Wednesday, 23 January

HiPEAC19 will also once again feature HiPEAC’s tailored recruitment support provided by BSC’s Xavier Salazar, helping companies find candidates with the specialist skills to deliver the computing systems of the future.

About HiPEAC

Since 2004, the HiPEAC (High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation) project has provided a hub for European researchers in computing systems; today, its network, the biggest of its kind in the world, numbers around 2000 specialists. The project offers training, mobility support and dissemination and recruitment services, along with numerous networking facilities to its members. The latest incarnation of the project, HiPEAC 5, began on 1 December 2017 and is delivered by 13 partners, led by Ghent University. It is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 779656.

HiPEAC organizes four networking events per year: the HiPEAC conference, two Computing Systems Weeks and a summer school. The HiPEAC conference attracts around 500 participants, and the 2019 edition is organized by the Universitat Politècnica de València. The following organizations are generously supporting the conference: DeepMind, Arm, Monet DB, Robocoast, Vineyard, TULIPP, Atos, Cerebras, Cleopa, dividiti, Embedded Computing Specialists, Loba, ho-COMPUTER, HPC Now!, Springer, Stream HPC, Thales, Xilinx and the Universitat Politècnica de València.
