UMIT Research Lab
UMIT Research Lab is an environment for research in computational science and engineering with focus on industrial applications and challenges of simulation technology.
The development of hardware architectures with a multidue of cores, parallel computing, visualization and elastic IT infrastructure is rapid. This brings new possibilities for technical and scientific computing, new software tools and services for handling large amount of data rapidly. UMIT Research Lab focuses on developing new solutions in knowledge in simulation technology that unleashes the new computing powers.
Two scientists associated with the UMIT Research Lab has been awarded a grant of 600 000 SEK from the Kempe foundation for researching real-world problems based on extended theory of tolerances.
Three Researchers from UMIT was awarded grants from the Swedish Research Council, totaling almost 10 MSEK.
Umeå University today announced it has joined a consortium of leading organisations and universities from the United Kingdom, Ireland and Germany focused on using real-world data to optimize and make more efficient cloud computing.
On tuesday a delegation from the japanese company Virtual Mechanics visited Umeå University and UMIT Research Lab.
The FP7 project VISION Cloud was presented with a Special Award at the prestigious IBC 2013 event in Amsterdam this month for its innovative work applied to the Media industry. The Department of Computing Science at Umeå University is one of the collaborators in the project.
