New European Lab for the Programming and Design of Heterogeneous Many-Core Systems
Euphoria, a new European lab for next-generation, many-core systems has been announced. The lab will bring world-leading researchers and industrial partners together to tackle a number of grand challenges facing the sector over the next 7 to 15 years.
Academic partners are: University of Edinburgh, Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) together with Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC), University of Ghent, INRIA and RWTH Aachen.
Industry collaborators include: Agilent, ARM, Codeplay, Critical Blue, Freescale, Herta Security, Imagination Technologies, Samsung, Wolfson MicroElectronics, and Vector Fabrics.
Euphoria will tackle the central challenge of how to design and use heterogeneous many-cores. It will bring together a world-class team, building on our strong track-record of research partnership with Europe's key industrial players.
The Euphoria launch event in December was hosted at the School of Informatics in Edinburgh and featured a number of academic and industry talks with an invited keynote speech from ARM, a leader in microprocessor intellectual property. Industry speakers included: Agilent, ARM, Codeplay, Critical Blue Freescale, Herta Security, Imagination Technologies, Samsung, Wolfson MicroElectronics, and Vector Fabrics.
ARM believes partnership and collaboration are essential to technological solutions and advancement. Euphoria brings together world-class universities in partnership with industry leaders to work on heterogeneous, energy-efficient systems. Together, we will research long-term challenges, attract top talent, and transfer new, critical knowledge to the industry.
