Welcome to gaZ

Computer Architecture Group of the University of Zaragoza

Address: C/ María de Luna 1 (Edificio Ada Byron) 50018 Zaragoza (España)

The Computer Architecture Group of the University of Zaragoza (gaZ) is a research group targeting simple software and hardware mechanisms to improve processing speed, to lower power consumption and to ensure minimum response time. Funds for our basic research mostly come from public agencies.

We are also involved in technology transfer and applied research, with companies and research groups requiring non-conventional software optimization or design. Examples are Convolutional Neural Networks, real-time embedded systems, hard-to-extract parallelism, or energy-oriented program optimization. Innovative execution platforms such as system-on-chip multicores (MPSoCs), GPGPUs or FPGAs are within our field of knowledge. Our applied research covers several market segments, from inexpensive embedded devices or hard real-time processors to massive parallel engines. 

The gaZ is mostly composed of professors of the Department of Computer and Systems Engineering (DIIS) at the University of Zaragoza. Other gaZ members are with the UPC, Univ. Valladolid, Univ of Cantabria, and University of the Basque Country in Spain, and with the Univ. Adelaida, Australia. The gaZ is integrated into the Engineering Research Institute of Aragon (I3A) and is a member of the European Network of Excellence HiPEAC (High-Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation). We are involved in the Spanish Society of Architecture and Computer Technology (SARTECO), which is committed to the development of Computer Architecture in our country.

The gaZ actively collaborates with other Spanish universities and institutions (BSC, UCM, UMA) and also with a number of foreign universities (UCSC and University of Illinois in the USA, Toronto University in Canada, University of Ferrara in Italy and the CINVESTAV Guadalajara in Mexico).
