High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation


HiPEAC is a coordination and support action (CSA) that aims to structure and connect the European academic and industrial research and innovation communities in computing systems (i) by increasing the industrial membership, (ii) by integrating the European innovation community, (iii) by organising activities to connect the research and innovation communities, (iv) by stimulating collaborations, (v) by producing a vision document on the future of computing systems in Europe, and (vi) by professionally disseminating the research outcomes in and beyond the European computing systems community.The HiPEAC CSA is meant to be the continuation of four successful networks with the same name (HiPEAC1-4). HiPEAC will leverage the existing community, the expertise and the set of instruments that were developed since 2004 and work on the following objectives: structuring and connecting the European computing systems community, cross-sectorial industrial platform-building, constituency building and consultations, clustering of related research and innovation projects, and road-mapping for future research and innovation agendas.
