Internet Computing & Systems Optimization (ICSO)

The Internet Computing & Systems Optimization (ICSO) group, which is supported by the Government of Catalonia as a recognized research group (2017 SGR 111, 2014 SGR 337), focuses on two interconnected research lines:

  • The use of algorithms and metaheuristics (simheuristics and learnheuristics) to support complex decision-making in the areas of transportation and logistics, smart cities and bioinformatics.
  • The development of distributed and parallel computing systems on different scales (small groups, clusters, or internet), and the design of collaborative systems and applications.
