We can look back at a very successful workshop last Wednesday. We were positively surprised by the number of subscriptions (62) and lucky to arrange for a larger room than originally planned. To all attendants, we say thank you for coming; it was a great day with inspiring conversations.

Aside from the workshop, we also ran our first steering committee meeting and discussed the start of our center with our funding source DSF. We were quite satisfied with the results of both meetings.

A number of open positions within HIPERFIT are now announced on the university pages and on the HIPERFIT web page. We wish to employ a total of six PhD scholars and postdoctoral researchers, and a center manager. The latter position will be a permanent appointment with the department of computer science DIKU as an assistant or associate professor. If you know of interested candidates, check out the description on the HIPERFIT website or the DIKU web site.

Next Tuesday, it is again time for our monthly seminar. Interested students, researchers and partner members are welcome. This time, Sinan Gabel from Nordea will talk about “Selected concrete challenges and ideas for further research”. In the second half, we will plan and schedule a series of overview talks about programming languages for parallelism and concurrency.

Furthermore, HIPERFIT contributes to a workshop on domain-specific languages (DSLs) for modeling on June 16 and 17, which is organised by Chalmers University. World-class researchers meet and discuss how to effectively apply DSLs and modeling techniques for societal tasks in environment protection, climate research, and in the financial domain. You can find details on the DSL4EE workshop pages.

Best regards from HIPERFIT
