2020 Third International Symposium on Signal and Image Processing (ISSIP 2020) is aimed to foster the field of signal and image processing encompassing the theory and practice of algorithms and hardware that convert signals produced by artificial or natural means into a form useful for a specific purpose. The signals might be speech, audio, images, video, sensor data, telemetry, electrocardiograms, or seismic data among others. The possible application areas include transmission, display, storage, interpretation, classification, segmentation, or diagnosis.

Center for Architecture and Applications of High-Performance Computers is a partner in the strategic EU project EPI - European Processor Initiative, which aims to develop a new European processor for future exascale high-performance computer systems. The project gathers a consortium of 23 key industry partners and leading EU research institutions. Within the FER project, we will employ several motivated students which have finished (are finishing) the master program (mag.ing.) to work on the project. We invite all interested to send their CV to hpc@fer.hr

The European Commission published an official announcement of the European Processor Initiative (EPI) on its website. As we aready reported in the news about the interview with Atos' Philippe Notton - who will be leading the initiative, EPI will develop a processor that will be at the heart of the EuroHPC supercomputers. The announcement confirms there are 23 partners in the project and the budget amounts to 120 million euro.

Europe has an ambitious plan to become a main player in supercomputing. The EuroHPC initiative is a joint undertaking with as one of its goals to construct an exascale supercomputer based on European technology. Although there are several processor-related research projects, it is only now that an effort has started to build a production HPC processor with industry quality. This is done as part of a 120 million euro Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA) that has been awarded to a consortium of 23 partners.  University of Zagreb with our HPC Architecture and Application Research Center is one of the partners. Take a look at the interview with Philippe Notton from Atos to learn more about the "European Processor Initiative": http://primeurmagazine.com/weekly/AE-PR-03-18-87.html

HPC Architecture and Application Research Center joined ETP4HPC , an European Technology Platform (ETP) in the area of High-Performance Computing (HPC). It is an industry-led think-tank comprising of European HPC technology stakeholders: technology vendors, research centres and end-users. The main task of ETP4HPC is to define research priorities and action plans in the area of HPC technology provision (i.e. the provision of supercomputing systems).   More info on  http://www.etp4hpc.eu
