Parallel Computing Systems

Research group

The Parallel Computing Systems (PCS) group at the University of Amsterdam performs research on the design, programming and run-time management of multi-core and multi-processor computer systems. The modeling, analysis and optimization of the extra-functional aspects of these systems, such as performance, power/energy consumption, reliability but also the degree of productivity to design and program these systems, play a pivotal role in this work.

Vacancies

  • The PCS group currently has a vacancy for a PhD student in Energy Efficiency Analysis of Computer Systems and Applications in Digital Services! Please see here for the description of the position.
