PRiME PhD Student Awarded HiPEAC internship with Samsung
James Bantock, one of PRiME’s PhD students, has been awarded a HiPEAC grant to support a four month internship with Samsung.
HiPEAC (“High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation”) is an EU funded project that acts as a hub for European researchers in computing systems and consists of around 1,500 specialists in 39 countries. HiPEAC funds collaboration grants for PhD students and junior post-doctoral researchers who wish to visit another HiPEAC institution, whether an academic institution or a company. The students and their host prepare a small research proposal for the stay and the HiPEAC steering committee decides (competitively) on the final allocation of the collaboration grants – based on the quality of the proposals.
James has been awarded a HiPEAC Collaboration grant to allow him to undertake a four month placement with Samsung Electronics UK in Staines-Upon-Thames. He will be working on the general theme of Energy and Thermal Management for mobile devices, specifically investigating and developing smart algorithms for improving the power and thermal footprint of mobile devices (for further information, see here). The internship commences in early June.
