ACACES 2008 Call for Participation

Fourth International Summer School on Advanced Computer Architecture and Compilation for Embedded Systems L'Aquila, Italy Sunday July 13 - Saturday July 19, 2008 Organized by the HiPEAC Network of Excellence sponsored by the 6th/7th European framework programme

The ACACES Summer School is a one week summer school for computer architects and compiler builders working in the field of high performance computer architecture and compilation for embedded systems. The school aims at the dissemination of advanced scientific knowledge and the promotion of international contacts among scientists from academia and industry. A distinguishing feature of this Summer School is its broad scope ranging from low level technological issues to advanced compilation techniques. In the design of modern computer systems one has to be knowledgeable about architecture as well as about the quality of the code, and how to improve it. This summer school offers the ideal mix of the two worlds, both at the entry level and at the most advanced level.

The ACACES Summer School is organized by the HiPEAC Network of Excellence (, but it is open to everybody. However, previous training and/or experience in computer science as well as a background in computer architecture or compilation is indispensable.

The Summer School will take place in L'Aquila, a small town about 100 km northeast of Rome, the capital town of Abruzzi and of the Province of L'Aquila. It will be held at the excellent facilities of the TILS, located on a small hill a few kilometers away from the center of L'Aquila.
