Solving today’s scientific and real-world problems not only requires high performance computing (HPC), but also new generations of Artificial Intelligence algorithms. The Parallel Computing & Optimisation group led by Prof. Pascal Bouvry conducts research in parallel computing, search and optimisation techniques, to provide efficient, scalable and robust solutions to state-of-the-art, large-scale discrete/combinatorial problems.

The main application domains are:

  • Security, Trust and Reliability;
  • Reliable scheduling and routing on new generations of networks;
  • Sustainable development and systems biomedicine;
  • Unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAV);
  • Smart cities.

In addition, PCOG is at the heart of the digital strategy of the university by managing the High Performance Computing (HPC) developments and the associated facility since 2007.
