Laboratory for Advanced Computing and Systems

The Lab

The Laboratory for Advanced Computing and Systems (LACS) is located at the Faculty of Computer Science of the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, in the Alps. There, leading scientists in data management, software engineering and intelligent systems work on projects that are internationally recognised and financed by private companies and public institutions. LACS is involved in several research projects, many in collaboration with industry and academic institutions world-wide.


We investigate fundamental questions in the intersection between linear algebra, graph mining and parallel and distributed computing system with an emphasis on big-data. Following HW/SW co-design principle, the mission of the lab is to provide the knowledge for delivering cutting-edge technology along the stack ranging from architecture and low-level optimizations to algorithm design and heuristics.

An international team of researchers with multidisciplinary skills makes LACS a vibrant and dynamic environment. Check out our scientific staff and students.
