Founded in 1973, the School of Computer Science affiliated to Huazhong University of Science and Technology is a key school included in the national "211 Project" and "985 Project" (“211Project ” and "985 Project" aiming to support leading Universities under Ministry of Education). The school always insists to create synergy between theoretical research and engineering development, integrate scientific research and talent cultivation. And a number of key laboratories and industry leaders have been built as our practice base. After more than 40 years of construction and development, they have become important base for technology innovation and entrepreneurship and from where come out a big number of professional personnel in computer field.

Intro.: Parallel and distributed computing has offered the opportunity of solving a wide range of computationally intensive problems by increasing the computing power of computer systems. Although important improvements have been achieved in this field in the last 30 years, there are still many important challenges. They arise from several broad areas, such as the design of parallel systems and scalable interconnects, the evolution of computer architectures, and the development of algorithms and applications. Now, we are focusing on the architecture, system software, resource management and applications about parallel and distributed computing. The research area involves cloud platform based on virtualization, real-time massive data processing, resource management in datacenters, resource scheduling on multi/many cores, Embedded and Pervasive Computing, in-memory computing, data-centr...
