Current International Grants
Some in close collaboration with ACK CYFRONET AGH as project partner or project coordinator (for further reading see: DICE projects)
TOTEM (CERN) - AGH (2017 - )
Project partner: AGH, Department of Computer Science
Collaboration: Experiment TOTEM (CERN) – AGH University Science and Technology
Supported by the Polish Ministry for Science and Higher Education
The aim of the project is collaboration between the TOTEM experiment at CERN and AGH. TOTEM (TOTal Elastic and diffractive cross section Measurement) is a precise proton spectrometer located at the CMS detector of LHC accelerator at CERN. Since 2013, Department of Computer Science AGH is a formal partner of TOTEM collaboration, participating in the research and development of experiment software.
The main topic of collaboration focuses on development of software for off-line data analysis and applications of distributed and parallel processing tools for interactive data analysis.

ALICE (CERN) – AGH (2017 - )
Project partner: AGH, Department of Computer Science – coordinator, Department of Electronics (Faculty of Computer Science, Electronics and Telecommunication), Department of Automatics and Robotics and Department of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering (Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Automatics, Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering) Collaboration: experiment ALICE (CERN) – AGH University of Science and Technology
The aim of the project is collaboration between the ALICE experiment at CERN and AGH. ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment), one of the largest experiments in the world devoted to research in the physics of matter at an infinitely small scale. Although much of the physics of strong interaction is, today, well understood, two very basic issues remain unresolved: the origin of confinement and the mechanism of the generation of mass. Both are thought to arise from the way the properties of the vacuum are modified by strong interaction. Since 2017 AGH is a formal partner of ALICE collaboration, participating in the research and development of experiment software. The main topics cover FPGA solutions, multicast-based calibration data propagation for cluster computing, frameworks for data analysis and machine learning.
