DIstributed Computing Environments (DICE) Team
We are a group of computer scientists and IT experts from the Department of Computer Science AGH and ACC Cyfronet AGH. We are a curiosity- and research-driven team, specializing in large-scale distributed computing, HPC, Web and Cloud technologies. We develop new methods, tools and environments and we apply these solutions in e-Science, healthcare and industrial domains.

The DIstributed Computing Environments Team

Our group conducts research and development projects which focus on utilisation of large data processing and high performance computing in computational science of all domains. With our ideas, technologies and tools we help other scientists to apply supercomputing and big data approaches to achieve new breakthroughs in science.

Our research interests include:

  • Methods, techniques and environments for programming and execution of complex scientific applications on cluster, Grid and Cloud infrastructures,
  • Collaborative Web-based environments for e-Science,
  • Knowledge-based approach to computation and data, including registries, application monitoring, provenence and semantic integration,
  • Services, components, workflows, composition and integration of heterogeneous service oriented and event-driven applications,
  • Support for multi-scale, multi-infrastructure and multi-programming-model applications.
