Computing Systems have a tremendous impact on everyday life in all domains, from the Internet to consumer electronics, transportation to manufacturing, medicine, energy, and scientific computing. In the future, computing systems will continue to be one of our most powerful tools for taking on the societal challenges shaping Europe, its values, and its global competitiveness.
The FP7 HiPEAC network of excellence is Europe’s premier organization for coordinating research, improving mobility, and enhancing visibility in the computing system field. HiPEAC covers all computing
market segments: embedded systems, general purpose computing systems, data centers and high performance computing. Created in 2004, HiPEAC today gathers over 250 leading European academic and industrial computing system research- ers from about 100 universities and 50 companies in one virtual centre of excellence. To encourage computing systems innovation in Europe, HiPEAC provides collaboration grants, internships, sabbaticals, and improves networking through the yearly HiPEAC conference, ACACES summer school, and the semiannual computing systems week.
In this roadmap document, HiPEAC leverages the broad expertise of its members to identify and analyze the key challenges for computing systems in Europe over the next decade. While advances in computing systems have been consistent and dra- matic over the past fifty years, its future today is not as certain. To continue to be a tool for providing new and innovative solu- tions, the computing systems community must face serious challenges in efficiency, complexity, and dependability.
