HPC Architecture and Application Research Center is part of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing at the University of Zagreb. At the moment, the Center is looking for researchers with a minimum of Master’s degree or equivalent in electrical engineering, computer science, computer engineering to be hired at several positions. The field of work relates to processor architecture and accelerator ASIC and FPGA design in the domains of deep learning, signal processing, image, and video data compression, and crypto algorithms. The Center is also looking for researchers in the domain of software and hardware development for heterogeneous computer architectures in a wide specter of platforms: embedded computer systems, cloud, and supercomputing.

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.
Mario Kovač, Director of the HPC Architecture and Application Research Center and Chief Communications Officer of the European Processor Initiative, attended the locally hosted European Space Agency Earth Observation workshop, held on March 5-6, 2020.
The 20th HiPEAC conference held in Bologna, Italy, from January 20th to 22nd hosted several workshops attended by the members of the European Processor Initiative. One of those, organized by HA2RC as members of EPI, was the tutorial called “First steps towards a made-in-Europe high-performance microprocessor”, covering the latest in EPI.
Director of HPC Architecture and Application Research Center, prof. dr. sc. Mario Kovač, who is also the Chief Communications Officer of the European Processor Initiative, attended the biggest and globally most recognized HPC conference – the Supercomputing conference, which took place in Denver, USA, from November 18th to 21st, 2019.
One of the largest projects the Center is participating in, the European Processor Initiative, was presented at the EFECS (European Forum for Electronic Components and Systems) from November 19-21, 2019 in Helsinki, Finland. EPI’s booth captains were Philippe Notton, General manager of EPI, and Daniel Hofman, Vice-president of the HPC Architecture and Application Center.
During the largest European HPC gathering, the ISC in Frankfurt, taking place from 16-20 June, 2019, Josip Knezović, Vice-president of the HPC Architecture and Application Research Center, captained the booth of the largest project the Center is participating in – the European Processor Initiative.
Article written by prof. dr. sc. Mario Kovač, Chief Communication Officer of the European Processor Initiative, has been published on CIO Applications Europe. Read the whole article about "Changing Approaches to HPC Systems" on
Jean-Marc Denis, HPC International Business Director at Bull, the EPI consortium coordinator, presents EPI at HPC User Forum in Detroit. In the presentation, Jean-Marc focuses on industrial perspectives of the project, the state of the art in HPC industry and our vision to tackle the exascale challenges. Video is available here.
Our EPI partner, prof. Mateo Valero, director of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center, presented the European Processor Initiative in RISC-V Workshop, Barcelona 7-10 May, 2018. His keynote focused on the role of RISC-V architecture in EPI project and in future exascale computing systems in general. Video is available here.
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 email@example.com
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. Take a look at the EC announcement on:
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":
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).
