Securing your network is not enough. Every service that you deploy is a window into your data center from the outside world—a window that could be exploited by an attacker. Bart Miller and Elisa Heymann explain how to minimize the security flaws in the software you develop or manage. Bart and Elisa focus on the programming practices that can lead to security vulnerabilities and on automated tools for finding security weaknesses. Using interactive secure coding quizzes—synthesized versions of vulnerabilities found in real grid/cloud software—you’ll be challenged to find as many vulnerabilities as you can in short code fragments. Bart and Elisa then dive into what you find (or don’t).

Dr. Elisa Heymann participated in the NATO Conference at Souda Bay – Chania – HELLAS

1st Conference on CyberSecurity in the maritime environment, was conducted at NMIOTC and was attended by 125 participants from twenty Allied and Partner nations, International Organizations, the international academic community, as well as representatives from the maritime industry and strategic think tanks. The aim was to gather subject matter experts and the whole community of interest in order to provide opportunities to discuss issues related to this emerging challenge in the maritime environment.The Chief of HNDGS, Admiral E. Apostolakis GRC (N) and the Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR), General C. Scaparotti USA (A) addressed the participants, highlighting the importance of the matter.

Methodology for the efficient execution HPC applications in multi-core environments. IBM (New York). December 6, 2016. Prof Emilio Luque. Computer Architecture and Operating System Department (CAOS). HPC for Efficient Applications & Simulation (HPC4EAS). University Autonoma of Barcelona (UAB), Spain


In parallel applications executed in HPC environments there are idle times during the execution that can be caused by communication collisions or cache conflits generating cache misses. 
We are developing a methodology, for message passing parallel scientific applications, which attempts to reduce the applications execution time by reducing these idle times.
In our proposal, to allocate processes to processors, we define two kind of “forces” acting among the processes: attraction and repulsion forces.
  1. Attraction forces are used to approximate those processes interchaning high volumes of communications, in order to speed up the communication.
  2. Repulsion forces are used to “separate” those processes with high volumes of data, in order to avoid they can share common caches, generating high cache misses ratios.

Dr. Manuel Taboada González & Dr. Hugo Meyer (members of HPC4EAS): they received the extraordinary doctoral award, November 2016.


The project (which involved HPC4EAS members) H4H (Hybrid4HPC),  received the Award of Excellence in the category “Business impact” (ITEA Consortium, Stockholm, Sweden).

The H4H project (Optimise HPC Applications on Heterogeneous Architectures), was developing a single hybrid programming environment that will enable the European research and industry to compete globally in this strategically important HPC market (Oct 2010 – Feb 2015).

Laura Espínola and Cecilia Jaramillo, PHD students of HPC4EAS research group, attended the last “ACM-W Europe WomENcourage 2016 Celebration of Women in Computing” (Linz, Austria on September 12th to 13th, at Johannes Kepler University).

ACM-W Europe Celebration of Women in Computing: WomENcourage 2016 is a networking event par excellence. The main aim of this event is to encourage young women including students at all levels, researchers and early practitioners it promotes discussion among peers as well as senior people in the field.

Mrs. Espínola & Mrs. Jaramillo participated in the event with the presentation of:

  1. Improving Communications in MPI Cloud (Laura Espinola, Daniel Franco and Emilio Luque)
  2. Nosocomial infection simulator using ABMS techniques (Cecilia Jaramillo, Dolores Rexachs, Emilo Luque and Francisco Epelde)

The ACACES Summer School is organized by the HiPEAC Network of Excellence.
