Laboratory for Parallel Programming

© Alex Becker / TU DarmstadtTechnische Universität Darmstadt (TU Darmstadt) is the leading research-oriented university in the Rhein-Main area of Germany with a strong focus on engineering and computer science. TU Darmstadt can look back on decades of successful tradition and innovation in the field of computer science. As early as 1957, the first programming lectures were held in Darmstadt, thus building the basis for one of the most important computer science centers in Germany. In 1972 the Department of Computer Science was founded, one of the first in Germany. The department is constantly ranked among the top-rated institutions at all national relevant rankings for many years now. In 2015, the department established the Laboratory for Parallel Programming. Its mission is to provide solutions that support simulation scientists in exploiting massive parallelism on modern architectures. To achieve this goal, the laboratory develops leading-edge programming tools and infrastructure for parallel computing. [More]
