Event organization

  • Albert Cohen is the General Chair of the 7th HiPEAC conference, January 2012. Louis Mandel is member of the local arrangements committee.

    The conference is pionneering a new “journal first” publication model, and has been completely reorganized into a large networking event with 27 parallel events, an industry exhibit with 50 companies booths and posters, and a European project exhibit with 46 projects from the computing systems, embedded systems strategic objectives of the FP7 and from the FET programme.

    475 registered participants, 34 ACM TACO journal papers will be presented (the record number for previous HiPEAC conferences was 210 participants).

  • Albert Cohen co-organized the 9th Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization, as a finance chair, April 2011. CGO is co-sponsored by ACM and IEEE, in Chamonix http://www.cgo.org/cgo2011 . 240 participants and 120 paper submissions, an increase of 10% and 30% over the record numbers for the conference.

  • Marc Pouzet organised the 18th annual edition of the international workshop SYNCHRON http://synchron2011.di.ens.fr/ , located in Damarie-les-lys, Nov. 28 - Dec. 2, 2011. This annual workshop is devoted to recent development in synchronous languages and its applications.

    This year, we have invited collegues from IRCAM (Paris) and GRAME (Lyon) for a half day presentation of their work on programming languages for music.

    The workshop has been a great success with 80 participant whereas the workshop usually have 50.
