Embedded Intelligence gets smarter thanks to HiPEAC and ARTEMIS

HiPEAC has joined forces with ARTEMIS to help the European embedded intelligence sector get even smarter. Established in 2004, the HiPEAC network brings together leading experts in computer architecture and compilation, spanning the spectrum from high-performance computing to cyber-physical systems.

As ARTEMIS members will be well aware, digitization, through the internet of things (IoT), Industrie 4.0 and initiatives such as the European Commission’s Smart Anything Everywhere programme, is the future. It has the potential to transform whole sectors, reinvigorate European industry, create hundreds of thousands of jobs and ensure Europe’s competitiveness in the global market.

However, without computing expertise, initiatives like these will fail to deliver their full potential. Modern processing systems are increasingly complex, and inefficient software will lead to the accumulation of technical debt and failing systems – not to mention security, safety and privacy issues. This is increasingly problematic as computing becomes more and more ubiquitous, becoming part of our everyday lives in ways we couldn’t have imagined a decade or so ago.

Whether you want to keep up to date with the latest technology developments, find specialist staff for your business or identify partners for a European-funded project, HiPEAC is here to help. As an initiative funded by the European Commission, HiPEAC membership is free of charge and offers a wide range of benefits, a few of which are detailed below. Membership is on an individual, rather than institutional, basis. To become an industry member, simply email membership@hipeac.net with a brief biography, explaining why you would like to join HiPEAC.

“HiPEAC allows us to keep up to date with current research into areas of business interest and monitor future trends. It also allows access to relevant research and potential student internships.” – Glenn Farrall, Senior Principal Automotive MicroControllers, Infineon Technologies UK

Networking opportunities

A first step to getting closer to the HiPEAC community could be attending one of our four annual networking events. From the HiPEAC conference in January, which brings together around 550 computing experts, to themed Computing Systems Weeks in spring and autumn, to the ACACES summer school in July, there’s something for everyone. You can take part in a workshop, pitch your company to students (more on this below), showcase your products and services in the industry exhibition or form part of a judging panel for leading-edge technology ideas.

Our next event is Computing Systems in Gothenburg on 22-24 July; with a theme of innovation, this offers workshops in bringing IoT technologies to market and venture creation, along with parallel sessions on RISC V, machine learning and energy-efficient computing. For the full programme, visit the HiPEAC website.

Get the specialist staff your company needs

One thing that we’ve seen in HiPEAC time and time again is that organizations looking to recruit new staff in computing systems often have problems finding candidates with the specialist skills they need, such as in cyber-physical/embedded systems, or advanced computing professionals. Likewise, researchers and engineers who have worked hard to develop skills in niche areas often experience difficulties in finding out when and where suitable jobs are available.

In response, we created the HiPEAC Jobs portal to bring recruiters and candidates together. Used by well-known companies in the embedded intelligence domain, including Thales, Honeywell and TTTech, the Jobs portal has been going from strength to strength.

How does it work for recruiters?

Simply create an account and log in to the HiPEAC website in order to add a new job or internship. You complete a simple form with the details of our vacancy – which must be based in Europe and relate to computing – and your job will be advertised on the portal.

Vacancies posted on the portal are visible to thousands of computing systems researchers, universities, doctoral students and professionals across the world, both through the portal itself and via our mailing lists, social media accounts, events and newsletters. You certainly don’t have to be an HR professional to use the portal – in fact, we see the tool as being ideal for the researchers and other individuals in companies who need to recruit staff for their teams.

HiPEAC industrial internships

To further support companies and researchers looking for development opportunities, HiPEAC organizes annual mobility placements. Every year, HiPEAC companies are invited to submit internship proposals detailing a project they’d like a PhD student to work on. Students are then invited to apply for these opportunities. As well as matchmaking students to internship proposals, HiPEAC offers funding to cover the cost of internships at small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

The next call for internship topics will be in early 2019, but in the meantime you can post internship opportunities on the HiPEAC Jobs portal. Find out more on the industrial internships webpage.

HiPEAC Careers Centre

To complement the Jobs portal and mobility programme, HiPEAC organizes a series of mentoring activities for students, as well as taking our careers centre on the road at different events.

Pitch your company’s vacancies at a HiPEAC Inspiring Futures event attended by local students or join a roundtable session at the HiPEAC summer school, ACACES, which attracts over 200 attendees. Participate in the HiPEAC conference industry exhibition and we will bring computing students to your stand. Or simply upload your vacancy to the jobs portal and we will display it at our travelling careers unit, featured in the HiPEAC booth at major international conferences such as DATE and ISC HPC, as well as at HiPEAC’s own events.

If you’re organizing a technical event, careers fair or summer school and would like HiPEAC to organize a careers-focused event, or if you have any other query related to recruitment, we’d love to hear from you. Email recruitment@hipeac.net
