The members of the HPCA group have conducted research on the application of high-performance parallel computing techniques to scientific and engineering applications. Below is a list of a few of the challenges that have been confronted.

  • Real-time Magnetic Resonance Imaging (Chicago hospital, 1995).
  • Analysis of tensions of airplane components (Boeing Ltd.,1996).
  • Fault-tolerant computing for aerospatial vehicles (Jet Propulsion Lab & NASA, 2001).
  • Evaluation of the gravitational field of Earth (Dept. of Aerospace Engineering & Engineering Mechanics - The University of Texas at Austin, 2003).
  • Model reduction for VLSI design and simulation (Philips Research Labs., 2004-).
  • Analysis of tensions of ceramic materials (Instituto de Tecnología Cerámica - Universidad Jaume I de Castellón, 2006-).

Some of these activities have been carried out in collaboration with several national (Spanish) and foreign research groups. Currently, we cooperate with researchers from the following centers:

  • Barcelona Supercomputing Center (Spain).
  • Chemnitz University of Technology (Germany).
  • ETH Zurich (Switzerland).
  • IBM T. J. Watson Research Center (USA).
  • Intel GmbH (Germany).
  • Technical University Carolo-Wilhelmina at Brunswick (Germany).
  • Technical University of Denmark (Denmark).
  • Texas Advanced Computing Center (USA).
  • The University of Texas at Austin (USA).
  • Umeå University (Sweden).
  • University of California at Berkeley (USA).
  • Instituto de Tecnología Cerámica - Universidad Jaume I de Castellón.
  • Universidades de Alicante y Miguel Hernández de Elche.
  • Universidad de La Laguna.
  • Universidad de Málaga.
  • Universidad de Murcia.
  • Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña.
  • Universidad Politécnica de Valencia.
