|As part of the research coordination program, HiPEAC3 includes a new instrument, called Thematic Sessions. A Thematic Session is a natural evolution of the clusters and task forces in HiPEAC2, but more reactive and self-organized. In HiPEAC3, any partner or member can propose a thematic session, on condition that it is related to the HiPEAC vision. A thematic session is comparable to an informal workshop. As an organizer, you will have to solicit contributions, but there should be no formal call for papers, neither a formal reviewing of the contributions. Proposers of a thematic session are encouraged to involve the FP7 projects and HiPEAC companies in the session they propose. In that sense a thematic session is very similar to the organization of a cluster meeting in HiPEAC2.
Collaboration and networking between member institutions and across the different disciplines: computer architects, design tool builders, compiler builders, system designers, between researchers from academia and industry, between European and non-European institutions. This collaboration between best of breed must lead to more European excellence in the HiPEAC domain. Collaboration and networking is stimulated by means of the various networking events, and the small collaboration incentives like collaboration grants, mini-sabbaticals, internships, ...
Valorisation of research results in the form of highly visible publications and commercialization of research results by existing companies or by newly created companies. The goal is to help companies to achieve world-leading positions in the computing systems and computing products, and to further increase Europe’s worldwide visibility in the HiPEAC domain via the HiPEAC conference, the ACACES summer school, the HiPEAC journal, a newsletter, a website, seminars, technical reports, workshops, and awards.
