Visible to the public HiPEAC '19Conflict Detection Enabled

The 14th International Conference on High-Performance Embedded Architectures and Compilers (HiPEAC 2019)

HiPEAC is a European network of almost 2,000 world-class computing systems researchers, industry representatives and students.

It provides a platform for cross-disciplinary research collaboration, promotes the transformation of research results into products and services, and is an incubator for the next generation of world-class computer scientists.


Computers will increasingly interact with the physical world, leading to a expansion from security into safety. Humans need to trust both the machines and the information that they keep about us, and therefore enforcement of security and privacy is of paramount importance.

For compute-intensive tasks, we will continue to use the cloud and supercomputers (HPC); this means that connectivity is crucial, yet local processing is becoming increasingly important. The increasing computational requirements are making computer system architects look for accelerators for specialized tasks, diverting in many cases from the traditional Von Neumann architecture.

Energy efficiency of computing systems remains a major challenge for the coming years.

As the cost per transistor is no longer decreasing, we might see diversified paths for using silicon technology: many designs will not use the latest technology node, but the more mature (and cheaper) one. It is also the right time to revisit the basic assumptions in order to open new tracks and approaches and to eventually reinvent computing.

With the flood of new systems and new system architectures, increasing attention must be paid to composability and interoperability between systems. The complexity of the new systems will be so high that human designers will only be able to master it with the help of computers using AI-based techniques. Innovative approaches will be required to ensure that the systems will do what they are supposed to do, both at the functional and at the non-functional level (e.g. timing requirement or reliability). We need to develop design techniques that go beyond predictability by design and allow the building of reliable systems from unreliable parts.

Finally, holistic approaches, implying multi-disciplinary techniques, will be needed in order to meet all the requirements of trustability, efficiency and cost.
