The Barcelona Supercomputing Center-Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC-CNS)

The Barcelona Supercomputing Center-Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC-CNS), established in 2005, serves as the national supercomputing facility in Spain. The Center hosts MareNostrum, one of the most powerful supercomputers in Europe. The mission of the BSC-CNS is to research, develop, and manage
information technologies to facilitate scientific progress. The BSC-CNS not only strives to become a first-class research center in supercomputing, but also in scientific fields that demand high performance computing resources such as the life and earth sciences. Following this approach, the BSC-CNS has brought together a critical mass of top-notch researchers, high performance computing experts, and cutting-edge supercomputing technologies to foster multidisciplinary scientific collaboration and innovation.
The computer sciences department of the BSC-CNS focuses on building upon currently available hardware and software technologies and adapting them to make efficient use of supercomputing infrastructures. The department proposes novel architectures for processors and memory hierarchy and develops programming models and innovative implementation approaches for these models as well as tools for performance analysis and prediction.
