SC@FIT - Supercomputing Technologies Research Group

The Supercomputing Technologies group is interested in the architecture and implementation of high performance systems as well as their operation and employment in scientific applications. The research area covers both top supercomputers as well as low power systems and heterogeneous systems with accelerators (Intel Xeon Phi, GPUs). Our other topics concentrate on design an development of highly optimized algorithms and techniques ensuring high efficiency and scalability.

Research interests

Hardware topics
  • Architecture of parallel systems
  • Performance and scaling models of systems with shared and distributed memory
  • HPC systems based on GPUs and other accelerators
  • Low power systems, power-performance optimization
Software topics
  • Local domain decomposition for spectral methods
  • Parallelisation in time
  • Automatic load balancing on heterogeneous systems
  • Multi-scale and multi-physics model coupling
