Advanced Computing

Advancing Computing underpins most of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) impact in today’s society. Simulation of complex physical and chemical systems, big data analytics, and training of deep neural networks pave the way for a whole new generation of exascale computing infrastructures worldwide.

This program area will promote and support joint projects and training actions on high performance and high throughput computing systems, quantum computing, data management and visualization, aiming at better exploiting the use of advanced computing facilities, at the Texas Advanced Computing Center, Portugal and Europe in a variety of domains, including cities, agriculture, fisheries, space-earth observation, security, and health applications.
