This July, from 3rd to 6th, some of the members of our research group have attended to the CMMSE (International Conference Computational and Mathematical Methods in Science and Engineering) conference, in its 16th edition, edition, which has been celebrated in Rota, Cádiz, Spain, to present their most recent works. Specifically, Pilar Martínez Ortigosa, Ester Martín Garzón, Juan José Moreno Riado and Nicolás Calvo Cruz have been to the conference. All the presented works have had a very positive acceptance. This picture was taken at the poster session:

The UGR has invested Doctor Honoris Causa to Professor Mateo Valero Cortés, professor of Computer Architecture at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and director of the National Supercomputing Centre (Barcelona). The event was held on the Royal Hospital of Granada Cruise. The ceremony was attended by some members of the SAL group.

In the same act was also invested Doctor Honoris Causa Doctor Miguel Ríos, a singer from Granada.

The official photos of the event, speeches and achievements of Professor Mateo Valero in Supercomputing can be seen here.

 

A project of the SAL research group is involved in the Google Summer of Code for the second time.

The P2PSP.org project, led by members of the High Performanze Computing and Algorithm research group, is taking part of the GSoC program as a mentor organziation for the second time, this is an international program in which Google awards stipends of 5500$ to all students who successfully complete a requested free and open-source software coding project during the summer.

Last year, three students of three diferent countries (Russia, India and Germany) worked on the project improving several aspect of the protocol. P2PSP is an open application-layer protocol (P2P based) for the real-time streaming of media content over the Internet. One of the most important goal of the project is to shape the future Internet TV.

The Students, advised by members of the research group, got to improve the protocol in several interesting topics such us security, efficiency and human-computer interaction.
