Complex Systems Laboratory
The group is engaged in three basic lines of research: theoretical and computational studies of paralelism in distributed memory systems with Beowulf type architectures, GRID and Access GRID, theoretical computational and experimental study of electrochemical interconnection in thin layer cells , in monopolar (ECD) and bipolar (SCBE) electrochemical deposition, and Experimental, theoretical and computational studies of electrochemical treatment of tumours (EChT), this project is done in association with Dr. Lucas Colombo, oncologist from the Roffo Institute from the School of Medicine, University of Buenos Aires.
The LSC is an interdisciplinary group formed with researchers from the Computer Science Department (CSD), the Department of General and Inorganic Chemistry and Physical Chemistry, (INQUIMAE) from the Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences, University of Buenos Aires and from the Roffo Oncological Institute from the University of Buenos Aires, devoted to the study of growth pattern formation in electrochemistry, the electrochemical treatment of tumours, and computing performance in parallel systems.
The group is composed of over 15 researchers (among Professors, Postdocs, Ph. D students and Licenciate in Computer Science students) and posess a laboratory of 200 square meters located at the LSC premises with experimental optical equipment, image processing hardware and a Beowulf cluster of 17 nodes dedicated to numerical simulations.
