ICHEC co-organising H2RC'15 Workshop at SC15

H2RC Logo

The HPC and Technical Computing communities are currently seeing a surge in interest around the potential advantages of FPGAs over other architectures in terms of both performance and energy consumption, with increasing relevance to the challenges faced on the road to Exascale. With this in mind, ICHEC, in collaboration with Xilinx, ETH Zurich, University of Virginia and University of South Carolina are organising the First International Workshop on Heterogeneous High-performance Reconfigurable Computing (H2RC'15) at the Supercomputing Conference (SC) this November in Austin, Texas. This will be the first workshop at SC to bring together HPC and heterogeneous-computing researchers to demonstrate and share experiences on how newly-available high-level programming models, including OpenCL, are already empowering HPC software developers to directly leverage FPGAs, and to identify future opportunities and needs for research in this area.
