Welcome to the DPCS@IN3-UOC site

Distributed, Parallel and Collaborative Systems (DPCS)

The DPCS group is focused on the development and optimization of distributed and parallel systems and algorithms at different scales (small groups, clusters, or Internet). In particular, we pay special attention to peer-to-peer, shared memory, message passing computing paradigms and HPC scientific applications. In addition, we are also interested in the design of collaborative systems and applications.

2012 IN3-HAROSA Workshop

IN3-HAROSA Workshop, Barcelona (Spain), June 13-15, 2012

The 2012 IN3-HAROSA Workshop on Systems Optimization & Internet Computing aims to be an open forum for disseminating recent advances in the fields of Applied Optimization, Vehicle Routing, Scheduling, System Availability, Simulation, Parallel and Distributed Computing, Hybrid Algorithms, Meta-heuristics, and other related topics.

The main goal of this workshop event is to get together members of the IN3-HAROSA KC, CTP-VERTEVALLEE, MCYT-HAROSA and CYTED-HAROSA@IB communities, as well as related partners, in order to present some of our current research activities and also to design and organize new ones for the future.

The 2012 IN3-HAROSA Workshop is an open event and the registration is free by invitation of any of the General Chairs. It will be held inside the IN3-MEDIATIC building at Barcelona, on June 13-15, 2012.

There will be several HAROSA Special Issues associated with this event:

We look forward to meet you at Barcelona!

2010 HAROSA Junior Researchers Workshop

Castelldefels, Barcelona (Spain), June 28, 2010


The 2010 IN3-HAROSA Junior Researchers Workshop is a meeting place for Junior Researchers working on different Computer Science and Operations Research topics. Two specific goals of this Workshop are: (a) to be a forum for the young and new researchers to introduce themselves into the HAROSA/DPCS research community; (b) to present and discuss some of their current work with other researchers.

The 2010 HAROSA Junior Researchers Workshop will be held in Castelldefels (Barcelona), on June 28th at the IN3 building. The IN3 facilities are located in the Castelldefels’ Mediterranean Technology Park.







Vall de Nuria

Vall de Núria, Catalunya (Spain), Juny 9-11, 2010

Las Jornadas de Concurrencia y Sistemas Distribuidos constituyen un marco de encuentro anual y muy consolidado de los grupos españoles cuyos temas de investigación se centran en distintos aspectos de la concurrencia y los sistemas distribuidos. LINK




The IN3 Knowledge Community HAROSA has published a new Springer book: Simulation Methods for Reliability and Availability of Complex Systems


Complex systems and networks have become ubiquitous and are essential to today’s society. The design of reliable complex systems and the determination of their availability are therefore very important tasks for managers and engineers. These tasks, however, can be extremely difficult to achieve, due to the fact that current analytical methods are often too complicated, time-consuming, inefficient, or even inappropriate, when dealing with real-life systems and networks.
