I CCS – Industry Workshop.

Date: May 24, 2017

Last 24th of May 2017, the Center for Computational Simulation (CCS) hosted its first CCS – Industry workshop. Representatives of several companies as well as members from all areas of research of CCS met at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. The meeting aimed at finding out the needs of the industries in our key research lines and at making our skills known to the different organizations. The initial hope was to develop an open and continuous line of communication among, which was, indeed, very successful, and we managed to set some mechanisms to facilitate this collaboration.

Once again, CCS would like to thank Indra, Telefónica, Next Limit, Adam, Incotec, Tecteco, Movildat, Eris Innovation, Watch and Act e Isper Consulting for their time and effort in coming to the workshop, as well as their willingness to engage in a collaborative process with us in the search for developing cutting-edge I+D+I.

Joint research meeting with the Barcelona Supercomputing Center.

Date: February 21, 2017.

Last 21st of February 2017, the Center for Computational Simulation (CCS) hosted the first joint meeting with the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC). A group of researchers from the BSC, chaired by the Directors of BSC, Prof. Mateo Valero and Josep Martorell, met key researchers of the CCS at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. The meeting, aimed at finding and creating research synergies between both research centers, was opened by the UPM's Vice Chancellor of Research, Prof. Asunción Gómez. The team from BSC, formed also by PI researchers from the Computer Sciences and CASE departments, discussed some of the research areas of common interest with the CCS with the purpose of setting up future collaborations. The speakers from the BSC and CCS –coming from some of the different Universities (UPM, URJC, UAM, UCM) taking part in the CCS– presented a summary of the work done in both Centers in areas ranging from computational fluid dynamics, computational astrophysics, data mining and visualization.

Both teams felt very pleased with the outcome of the workshop and we are already working on the mechanisms to facilitate this collaboration.

Once again, CCS would like to thank BSC for their time and effort in coming to Madrid, as well as their willingness to work together.

Seminario: Software Defined Networking y Network Virtualization.

Fecha: 10 de Febrero del 2017 (10:00 - 12:00)

Lugar: CCS - ETSI Informaticos. Sala de seminarios

El seminario consistirá en una introducción a paradigmas modernos de redes de comunicación, como SDN y virtualización de red. Se presentará una perspectiva de distintas soluciones en ambos paradigmas (distintos protocolos, soluciones, workflows, casos de uso, etc.), evaluando ventajas y desventajas de cada uno, y se finalizará el seminario discutiendo posibles oportunidades de integración y posibles trabajos a realizar en el campo.
