Project Description

CAPAP-H – Red de Computación de Altas Prestaciones sobre Arquitecturas Paralelas Heterogéneas (CAPAP-H)

Period: 2007-12-01 – 2009-12-01 (24 months).

Funded by: Xunta de Galicia

In various areas of science and engineering is necessary to solve problems of high
computational cost. To this end, researchers use parallel systems, each time
more heterogeneous, and which are difficult to program and use efficiently.
Examples of these systems are heterogeneous computers networks and multi-core processors.

The groups participating in this network address in their lines of work problems
posed by these platforms. The network aims to facilitate exchange and
knowledge transfer between groups, foster cooperation and joint efforts
to consolidate its international recognition in the field of CAPAP-H.


The main objectives of the network are the following:

  • Facilitate the exchange and the transfer of knowledges and experiences between the different groups of investigation interested in the CAPAP-H, boosting  the cooperation between them.
  • Help to the consolidation and diffusion of the existent knowledge on CAPAP-H. Boost the development and use of new technics and methodologies that makes possible the CAPAP-H, mainly in those lines in which the participant groups research.
  • Join and organise the individual efforts to treat to identify and reach more ambitious aims, as well as consolidate the community that works in this field so that it increase his specific weight to international level,facing to possess an own identity in the European Space of Investigation.
  • Improve relations between the participant  groups, as well as with other public or private organisations, national or international, to collaborate in the development of publications, projects, conferences and seminars.
