HiPEAC is a support action that aims to structure and strengthen the European academic and industrial communities in computing systems: (i) by increasing innovation awareness and by encouraging researchers to engage in innovation activities; (ii) by professionally disseminating program achievements beyond the traditional scientific venues; (iii) by producing a vision document...

The main target of the Mont-Blanc 3 project "European Scalable and power efficient HPC platform based on low-power embedded technology" is the creation of a new high-end HPC platform (SoC and node) that is able to deliver a new level of performance / energy ratio whilst executing real applications.

The technical objectives are:

The recent technological advancements and market trends are causing an interesting phenomenon towards the convergence of High-Performance Computing (HPC) and Embedded Computing (EC) domains. On one side, new kinds of HPC applications are being required by markets needing huge amounts of information to be processed within a bounded amount of time. On the other side, EC systems...

The Mont-Blanc project aims to develop a European Exascale approach leveraging on commodity power-efficient embedded technologies. The project has developed a HPC system software stack on ARM, and will deploy the first integrated ARM-based HPC prototype by 2014, and is also working on a set of 11 scientific applications to be ported and tuned to the prototype system.

Adapting Service lifeCycle towards EfficienT (ASCETiC) was focused on providing novel methods and tools to support software developers aiming to optimise energy efficiency and minimise the carbon footprint resulting from designing, developing, deploying, and running software in Clouds. At the same time, quality of service, experience and perception was taken into account, so...

Data-centres form the central brains and store for the Information Society and are a key resource for innovation and leadership. The key challenge has recently moved from just delivering the required performance, to include consuming reduced energy and lowering cost of ownership. Together, these create an inflection point that provides a big opportunity for Europe, which...

The proposed HiPEAC network of excellence was a follow-up of an existing network that wanted:

  1. to steer and to increase the European research in computing systems
  2. to improve the quality of the European computing systems research
  3. to create a visible and integrated pan-European community in computing systems.

The network was...

There is a continued need for higher compute performance: scientific grand challenges, engineering, geophysics, bioinformatics, etc. However, energy is increasingly becoming one of the most expensive resources and the dominant cost item for running a large supercomputing facility. In fact the total energy cost of a few years of operation can almost equal the cost of the...

There is an ever-increasing demand both for new functionality and for reduced development and production costs for all kinds of Critical Real-Time Embedded (CRTE) systems (safety, mission or business critical). Moreover, new functionality demands can only be delivered by more complex software and aggressive hardware acceleration features like memory hierarchies and multi-core...

The increasing demand for functionality in current and future real-time embedded systems is driving an increase in performance of processors. However at the same time, in developing safety-related real-time embedded systems, there is a need to prove that the timing requirements are met. Multi-core processors are increasingly being considered as the solution to achieve the...
