Welcome to the web site of MAC, the Munich Centre of Advanced Computing!
Those who accompanied us doing the first steps in summer 2006 know that progress was not straightforward, and some battles got lost - unfortunately and unluckily. However, the "yes, we can!" turned out to be finally true for MAC, too. Thus, in the beginning of the year 2009, MAC consists of ten new and thriving interdisciplinary research projects in the context of Advanced Computing.
More than 20 research groups from TUM as well as from collaborating research institutions are involved in MAC's projects, and more than 40 additional positions of Ph.D. students or research assistants, respectively, have been created and are funded in the framework of MAC. Furthermore, by adopting the successful educational program of TUM's International Graduate School of Science and Engineering (IGSSE), MAC further strengthens IGSSE's research profile and scope; by being a main pillar of the strategic partnership of TUM and KAUST, the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, MAC contributes to TUM's international profile and visibility; and via its focus on computing, MAC further strengthens Munich's position as a top player in high-performance computing. So have a look at what currently happens within MAC, and stay tuned for the future developments!
