Call for proposals for Cross-Site Collaboration Grants to initiate and promote Cross-site Actions.

EuroLab-4-HPC is pleased to announce the second call for proposals for Cross-Site Collaboration Grants to initiate and promote Cross-site Actions.

Grants are available for short cross-discipline stays, targeted at PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and academics, working in multiple layers of the HPC system stack (architecture, runtime, tools, …).  This includes HPC topics from the engineering domain, the automotive, health, mobility, security and energy sector, just to name a few. Each grant will provide a maximum of 5,000 euros to cover the travel expenses for a three- to six-week collaborative visit, which must take place between January and July 2017.  Last year, we funded seven cross-site actions, which led to several first-rate publications and ongoing collaborations.  This year we wish to fund a larger number and achieve even more.
The EuroLab-4-HPC project has the bold overall goal to build connected and sustainable European leadership in high-performance computing systems.  The project aims to bring together the different and leading performance-oriented communities in Europe, to work across all layers of the system stack, in order to tackle long-term challenges in high-performance computing (HPC) and, at the same time, fuel new HPC-centered companies.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
HPC systems beyond Exascale computing and end of technology scaling
Emerging technologies for HPC systems
Emerging programming techniques, frameworks and tools for HPC systems
Emerging applications for HPC systems
We welcome proposals for cross-site visits with precisely defined outcomes: hence, proposals should include a description of the current state and how to improve in terms of used methods and expected results. Visits should initiate or continue a long-term collaboration around one or more existing common platforms, which may be any kind of hardware or software IP.  Such platforms must be bold and disruptive with a high potential for commercialization or business generation, and the best platforms will be identified within the project to contribute to the EuroLab-4-HPC portfolio (i.e. the set of platforms that forms the basis of collaborative research).  Priority will be given to proposals judged likely to create opportunities for innovation and commercial exploitation.
Evaluation criteria will be:
•    Expected research impact
•    Concept, objectives and work plan
•    Congruity of resources and budget
•    Business impact potential
•    Applicant profile
Cross-site visits are intended to support the travel expenses for a single researcher from a source institution to visit a destination institution. Either the source or destination must be a member of EuroLab-4-HPC.  The grant consists of daily allowances up to max. 4.500 EUR and a reimbursement of the travel costs up to max. 500 EUR. The daily allowance is set at 150 EUR per day. This daily allowance should cover all expenses related to the stay (accommodation, local transportation…).

IET Cyber-Physical Systems: Theory & Applications

Special Issue on Safety-Critical Cyber Physical Systems


Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) deal with the cyber control and physical processes as well as the interactions between them. In the domains of automobile and aerospace (A/A), many CPS are safety-critical systems, such as cruise control systems and flight control systems. Undiscovered software or hardware problems in the design may lead to severe safety issues. Late-phase fault detection and rework can risk significant loss in both time and money.


To address these issues, early-phase rigorous design, modeling and verification of CPS is promoted. At the same time, novel, trustworthy, yet efficient approaches to address various challenges of CPS, such as complexity, scalability, security, heterogeneity and interoperability, are desired in the A/A industrial context to meet the market requirements of quality, dependability, cost and time. This special issue will present the state-of-the-art research results on the topics of safety-critical CPS in the A/A domains, particularly for the autonomous vehicles and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.


The areas of interests include, but are not limited to, the following CPS-relevant topics:


–        Model-based design approaches

–        Software/Hardware codesign approaches

–        Requirement formalization and validation approaches

–        CPS safety and security

–        Complexity and scalability

–        Heterogeneity and interoperability

–        Timing analysis and verification

–        Architecture design and analysis

–        Simulation, testing and formal verification

–        Hybrid systems modeling, verification, and reachability analysis

–        Synthesis of CPS

–        CPS in Autonomous vehicles and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles


Important dates:


–        Submission Deadline        Dec 31, 2016

–        Notification Due               Mar 2, 2017

–        Final Version Due              Apr 30, 2017

–        Publication Date               Jul 2017



All papers must be submitted through the journal’s Manuscript Central system:
