Research Group


Main board in the making

The research objective of the Computing (COMP) group is to develop and analyse fundamental technologies that enable the performance-sensitive computer systems and applications of the future.

The research activities of the Computing group range from basic research on unconventional computation and theoretical algorithms to application-oriented research in the areas of high-performance computing, bioinformatics, computer vision, graphics, and search.

The Computing group covers all main abstraction levels of computer systems and consists of experts in computer architecture, system software, parallel computing, algorithms, and visual computing. This makes the group ideally positioned for both in-depth studies in established fields and cross-disciplinary efforts spanning multiple abstraction levels.
