The European Processor Initiative (EPI) project

Tuesday, January 11, 2022; 16:00



The IEEE Computer Society Israel in cooperation with the Association of Engineers in Israel (AEAI) launches the first webinar out of a series of webinars in different areas of computer systems, Software engineering, Computer architectures, data center, accelerators for machine learning, security, and more.The webinars offer insightful and enriching talks held by international leaders and professionals of the computer society sector.

The first free online webinar will discuss the “RISC-V vector processor in EPI (European Processor Initiative)”, and will be presented by Prof. Jesus Labarta, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya – UPC & BSC

The European Processor Initiative (EPI) project aims at developing European processor technology for High-Performance Computing (HPC) and emerging application areas. Beyond leveraging ARM technology, an important objective of the project is to develop a fully owned implementation of a generic accelerator based on the RISC-V vector extension ISA. This talk aims to describe the fundamental vision behind the design of such an accelerator and its architectural features. Prof. Jesus Labarta will report on the implementation status of the first version of the microarchitecture. He will also present the software development vehicle (SDV) frameworks used to steer a holistic co-design approach, including operating system and overall system software developments to homogenize the heterogeneous combination of different cores in the overall platform.

The Webinar is free, but pre-registration is required. So, please sign up using the below link (Technion account):

We are looking forward to your participation

Prof. Avi Mendelson – IEEE Computer Society Israel Chairman
