Research Group 5

Scientific Computing & Information Technology Group


Group leader: Professor Piotr Gawron

Modern particle astrophysics experi­ments face increasing challenges of collecting and processing large volumes of data.

The objective of this team will be to develop cutting-edge research activity in the area of scientific computing and IT programming related primarily, but not only, to the main two experimental activities that AstroCeNT is involved in: direct detection of dark matter by DarkSide and subsequently Global Argon Dark Matter Program, as well as detection of gravitational waves by Advanced Virgo/LIGO and in the future Einstein Telescope. It is expected that the team will cooperate with the other teams of AstroCeNT, while also developing their own activities. Candidates for a leader will be expected to present their own ideas and vision for themselves and their team.
