PhD positions in Parallel and High-Performance Computing,
Umeå University, Sweden
We are seeking outstanding candidates for PhD student positions within the field of Parallel and High-Performance Computing.
The research group is focused on the design, analysis, and implementation of efficient and robust algorithms, and library software for parallel dense and structured matrix computations. The research is performed in an international and creative environment. Locally, the research group is collaborating with the High Performance Computing Center North (HPC2N) and the UMIT Research Lab.
For further information of the positions, please contact Professor Bo Kagstrom (email@example.com) or Ass. Professor Lars Karlsson (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the Department of Computing Science and HPC2N.
Dead-line for applications is March 4, 2013.

Energy-efficient computer resources which adapt its capacity to the needs of the application. This is the objective of the project “Cloud Control” which was recently awarded 20 million SEK from the Swedish Research Council. A group of researchers from Umeå and Lund under the leadership of professor Erik Elmroth from the Department of Computer Science at Umeå University, will develop methods and tools to handle resources and services in future computer centers with distributed systems of virtual machines.
The main goals of the project are:
- to optimize the usage of servers
- to predict the usage peaks for specific applications so that the number of virtual machines that are needed can adapt in time
- to optimize the physical placement of the servers in order to reduce cooling requirements
The project will receive funding during five years.
Umeå University, May 31, 2012
High Performance Computing Center North cordially invites you to participate in the inauguration of Abisko, the new HPC2N supercomputer system. The morning program offers a tutorial and the afternoon program includes presentations by scientists using Abisko, state-of-the-art technical and R&D overviews and the formal inauguration of Abisko.
The procurement of Abisko was made possible through a grant from the Swedish National Metacenter VR/SNIC and the support of Umeå University.
Dead-line for registration: May 21 at 12.00.
There is no conference fee but remember that the number of seats for all events are limited, so register as soon as possible.
