Parallel and Distributed Processing

Parallel and Distributed Processing group in the Systems and Security (SAS) theme focuses on developing workload, resource and data management solutions for computing frameworks (such as machine/deep learing frameworks, graph processing frameworks and so on) and parallel/distributed systems (such as cluster, cloud, edge computing systems and so on).

The examples of our research can be seen from the selected publications below.
