Centre for Research in Advanced Computing Systems (CRACS)

CRACS aims to be actively involved in fundamental and applied research in scalable computing both at national and international level; to foster training of young researchers both at post-graduate and post-doctoral level; and to actively establish partnerships with companies to promote and disseminate research results. The research team is composed of around 45 researchers, of which 10 hold a PhD degree.

CRACS focuses on two main areas of research that include a broad number of issues related to scalable computing as listed next:

1. Computational Models and Languages for Scalable Computing    

  • Implementation of Logic Programming Systems
  • Parallel Logic Programming and Inductive Logic Programming systems
  • Programming Languages for Mobile Computing and Sensor Networks
