The University of A Coruña (UDC) is a public institution whose primary objective is the generation, management and dissemination of culture and scientific, technological and professional knowledge through the development of research and teaching.

The Research Center for Information and Communication Technologies (CITIC) is a singular research center of the University of A Coruña, whose main objective is to promote the advancement and excellence in research, development and innovation on Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) and to promote the transfer of knowledge and results to the society. CITIC is composed by 13 research groups from UDC, with more than 250 researchers working in three main Technology Areas:

  • Data and Information Science: Big data, machine learning, statistics, mathematical models and simulation, information retrieval, GIS, document management systems and web information, quantum information.
  • Perception, cognition and interaction: artificial intelligence, artificial vision, recommendatory systems and gamification, cybersecurity.
  • Computer architecture, sensor and communications: Internet of Things, High Performance Computing, wireless communications, cloud computing, distributed systems.

With more than 30 University-Industry collaborative projects per year, CITIC is a meeting point between the UDC research groups and ICT companies of the Galicia region.

CITIC researchers have conducted a wide range of work on HPC topics such as developing parallel applications for different parallel architectures and programming paradigms (clusters, shared memory multiprocessors, GPUs), optimizing code exploiting underlying processor architecture, design of fault tolerant applications, cloud computing application deployment and massive data set processing. Multiple funded research projects have been developed around these topics at national and international level.

The HPC team, composed of around 30 members, is located both at CITIC and Computer Science School buildings at University of A Coruña campus, having a consolidated experience on HPC research topics, foreseeing for the next years to focus their work mainly on developing techniques and applications for exascale computing, contributing to the convergence of HPC with Big Data processing, and also paying attention to parallel deep learning algorithms.
