The ALOHA Final Workshop has been held virtually on June 30th, 2021 through the online meeting platform Teams at:

In this event, the ALOHA consortium presented the results achieved within the project, the assessment of the toolflow capabilities on the reference design cases, and a summary of the main technical solutions and research outcomes. The workshop was open to researchers and developers in the ICT community, from academy and industry, involved in both hardware and software development, as well as companies (including SMEs) interested in a smoother transition to deep learning for their products. Participation to the workshop was free of charge.



The SLOHA Workshop's primary goal is to address these research questions and facilitate the implementation of DL applications on heterogeneous low-power computing platforms and edge devices, including accelerators such as (embedded) GPUs, FPGAs, CGRAs, and TPUs. SLOHA 2021 (System-level Design Methods for Deep Learning on Heterogeneous Architectures) will be virtually held on February 5, 2021.

The ALOHA consortium will propose several presentations of the ALOHA framework during SLOHA 2021, which is co-located with Date Conference 2021 (Conference on Design, Automation and Test in Europe).



The HiPEAC conference (High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation) is a prestigious annual European forum for experts in computer architecture, programming models, compilers and operating systems for embedded and general-purpose systems. The HiPEAC 2020 conference will take place in Bologna, Italy (Polo congressuale).

The ALOHA consortium will held a tutorial during HiPEAC 2020, on January 21th, SALA AVORIO (from 2:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.). The tutorial is meant to offer an overview how to use the ALOHA framework and its different functionalities.



SINNOVA is the most important Sardinian exhibition dedicated to innovation, organized every year in Cagliari (Italy). More than 150 exhibitors, among innovative ICT companies, universities, investors, present their products and the results of their research activities.

UNICA and Pluribus One presented their research activities and the goals of the ALOHA project at the 7thrd edition of SINNOVA (Cagliari, Italy, October 3-4, 2019).

Cyber-physical systems are complex and autonomous ensembles of different components that directly cooperate to offer smart and adaptive functionalities. They are composed of sensors, actuators, and processing components that are deeply entangled: they constantly exchange information and actively interact with the external environment. So they are increasingly used in a variety of applications with a growing market. CPS summer school was targeted at students, research scientists, and R&D experts from academia and industry, who wanted to learn about CPS engineering and applications.

ALOHA participated through several actions at the 3rd edition of the CPS School (Alghero, Italy, September 23-27, 2019).

On September 25th, day of the school dedicated to “Modelling and Programming”, a session was dedicated to a practical Tutorial on the technologies developed in the context of the ALOHA Project.

VISION is the world’s leading trade fair for machine vision. The who’s who in the machine vision industry meets in Stuttgart and presents an incomparable range of products and services: from sensors to processors, from cables to cameras, from software to illumination systems. However, complete machine vision systems and very specific applications for many different industries are exhibited – from mechanical engineering and the automotive industry through to the medical technology industry and many, many more industries besides.

During VISION 2018.(Messe Stuttgart, Germany, November 6-8), IridaLabs presented the ALOHA architecture and the project's first research findings.



Wild Patterns is a Tutorial on Adversarial Machine Learning, periodically held by Pluribus One during several top conferences and events on machine learning and computer vision. The secure machine-learning algorithms and the related security assessment procedures defined within the ALOHA project have been presented by Battista Biggio and Fabio Roli during several editions of the tutorial, within these events: Winter School on Quantitative Systems Biology: Learning and Artificial Intelligence (Trieste, Italy, November 15-16); ACM CCS 2018, 25th ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (Toronto, Canada, October 15-19); ECCV 2018, European Conference on Computer Vision (Munich, Germany, September 8-14); EUSIPCO 2018, 26th European Signal Processing Conference (Rome, Italy, September 3-7). Slides and videos of the editions of the Tutorial are available in this article.



Marco Comastri, President & General Manager of CA Technologies EMEA, was an invited speaker at the Digital Convergence Day, Milan, June 20, 2018. He talked about “Big Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence at the center of the strategies to improve customer experience and increase business efficiency”, presenting ALOHA as one of the strategies that CA Technologies is following in that matter.
