The Centre for Distributed and High-Performance Computing is a leader in collaborative, multidisciplinary research that advances information technology and other application domains.
Distributed computing systems underpin research and development in many sectors including engineering, business, banking and finance, life and medical science, and natural and physical sciences.
Research in distributed and high-performance computing is critical to Australia’s scientific reputation and competitiveness. This has prompted enormous investment in high-performance computing facilities and infrastructure over many years and through several national initiatives.
The Centre for Distributed and High-Performance Computing was established to complement these initiatives by providing an incubator for academic and research leadership in Australia and around the world.
It provides streamlined research, technology exploration and advanced training programs in high-performance computing.
The centre increases collaborative opportunities for researchers by providing a focal point for research that spans several disciplines, including algorithms, big data analytics, databases, green computing, data centres and clouds, networking, the Internet of Things and service science.
The centre strengthens research and fosters collaborative opportunities with the ICT sector and others such as biotechnology and finance. It offers specialised expertise that complements current ICT research efforts.
The combined team comprises nearly 50 academics, research staff, affiliates and postgraduate students, and is anticipated to grow over the next few years.
Professor Albert Y Zomaya has the following affiliates and collaborators:
