In the era of the multi- and many-core, new challenges such as power appear in tandem with new opportunities such as heterogeneous and reconfigurable computing. The solutions for this new era should be scalable from embedded systems all the way to high-performance computing platforms. Nanoscale manufacturing processes increase the relevance of reliability and availability while the future appearance of tens to hundreds of cores on chip are creating new research horizons for programmability i.e. on how to extract the full potential of the hardware.
European Commission has highlighted the above issues in its first call for the Seventh Framework Programme under the Computing Systems topic. We will devote a special session to the projects accepted for this call. This will be the first time when all of the projects will appear together in a public forum with a global relevance. We hope that this will be an opportunity that will provide a detailed exposure into the future of research in the EU in Computing Systems.
The special session will take place on May 6th; please find the program below.
