VINEYARD participated in the HiPEAC 2017 conference, where it had the chance to present two papers one in the Workshop on Reconfigurable Computer (WRC) and another in the Workshop on Energy-efficient Servers for Cloud and Edge Computing (EnESCE). The EnESCE workshop was co-organized by the projects VINEYARD, dRedBox, M2DC and Uniserver.
The goal of the workshop was to present the most recent work on next generation energy-efficient servers and foster the interaction between the universities, research centres and industry that work on this field. Besides the technical paper, two keynote talks were given: one from Andreas Oloffson from Adapteva and one from Peter Pietzuch from Imperial College.
The following papers were presented in the WRC and the EnESCE workshops respectively:
- High Level Synthesis versus HDL: A Case study on Hardware Accelerators for Financial Applications, Ioannis Stamoulias, Christoforos Kachris, Dimitrios Soudris
- Hardware acceleration of Spark: A use-case on all-programmable MPSoCs Christoforos Kachris, Elias Koromilas, Ioannis Stamelos, Dimitrios Soudris
