The Center for Computational Simulation (CCS) promotes the formation of a new Institute of Health Research.

Date: September 13, 2017

The Center for Computational Simulation, within the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, has promoted the formation of a new Institute of Health Research between the Universidad Politénica de Madrid, HM Hospitales, Fundación de Investigación HM Hospitales and Universidad CEU San Pablo. The Institute of Health Research is oriented to the research area of Health Technology and is now almost a fact after the signature of the formation agreement between the president of HM Hospitales, the president of the Fundación de Investigación HM Hospitales, the rector of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and the rector of Universidad CEU San Pablo.

Partial violation of the second law of thermodynamics in a quantum system known as Hofstadter lattice.

Date: September 11, 2017

An apparent macroscopic violation of the second law of thermodynamics in a quantum system has been discovered by researchers at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) and the Center for Computational Simulation (CCS). This partial violation has no place within the framework of classical physics. These results may lead to new and unexpected applications in the development of quantum technologies, such as quantum simulators or quantum memories that are more stable and operate under realistic conditions subject to thermal fluctuations.

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.
