In addition to the IT services for the HZDR, the Department of Information Services and Computing (FWC) is driving some development topics. Those are for example:

  • PowerwallDevelopment of solutions for the management of research data and scientific software
  • Massive parallel Computation of physical phenomena using many core architectures (e.g. GPU)
  • Visualization of extensive simulation and measurement data in 3D space and the development of interactive user interfaces to analyse and manipulate those data. A virtual reality laboratory was set up for this purpose.
  • Interactive simulation of fire-fighting missions using immersive visualization (VR)
  • Identity Management Solutions in federated environments
  • Information-Security in the field of Cloud Computing
