We sponsor HiPEAC again this year

HiPEAC is an academic oriented, 3-day, international conference around HPC, compilers and processors. Last year was in Vienna, this year in Amsterdam – where StreamHPC also is based. HiPeacThat was an extra reason to go for silver sponsorship, besides I find this conference very important.

Compilers have the job to do magic. Last year I had nice feedback on my request to give the developers feedback where in the code the compiler struggles – effectively slapping the guy/gal instead of trying to solve it with more magic. Also learned a lot about compilers in general, listened to GPGPU-talks, discussed about HPC, and most of all: met a lot of very interesting people.

Why you should come too? I give you five reasons:

  • Learn about compilers and GPU-techniques, in depth.
  • Have great discussions about the latest and greatest research, before it’s news.
  • Meet great people who create the compilers you use (or the reverse).
  • Visit Amsterdam, Netherlands – I can be your guide. Flights are cheap.
  • Only spend €400 for the full 3 day programme and a unique dinner with 500 people – compare that to SC14 and GTC!

If you are seeking for a job in HPC, compilers and GPGPU, you should really come over. We’re there, but several other sponsors are also looking for new employees too.

See the tracks at HiPEAC, which has a lot more GPU-oriented talks than last year. I selected a few from the list in bold.
