Another master student has graduated from the Memory Team. Jasper Kuijsten joined the team in March 2012 and has worked on predictable and composable reconfiguration of the memory controller front-end. His work has been very diverse and contains theoretical comparisons between different approaches to composability in terms of efficiency and reconfiguration effort, but also implementation of his concepts and ideas in both SystemC and VHDL. The Memory Team thanks Jasper for his hard work and good team spirit during the project and wishes him the best of luck in his future career.
I have recently become a member of the HiPEAC Network of Excellence, a network with the goal to steer and increase the European research in the area of high-performance and embedded computing systems and to stimulate collaboration between academia and industry. Joining this network is an additional step towards establishing a strong international network and I look forward to meeting new interesting people as well as seeing some well-known faces at future HiPEAC events. The membership also provides interesting collaboration opportunities by providing collaboration grants to PhD students. Any PhD students interested in a three-month collaboration visit in Prague is welcome to contact me to discuss if there is any interesting work we can do together that can result in a high-quality joint publication.
