Welcome to DFCTI
The Department of Computational Physics and Information Technologies (DFCTI) plays a key role in the research plan of the Horia Hulubei National Institute for R&D in Physics and Nuclear Engineering (IFIN-HH).
DFCTI's staff conducts inter- and multidisciplinary research in areas such as strongly correlated systems, nuclear and subnuclear phenomena, condensed matter and biomolecular systems, using computational methods. Besides, the department provides resources and services of high-performance computing (HPC) as well as grid computing for the support of large scale international collaborations and projects, like the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) and Extreme Light Infrastructure - Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP).
The technical expertise of the staff includes HPC and grid technologies, algorithm programming and optimization, distributed data access and management, advanced networking, cluster architectures and optimization, parallel computing, symbolic computing, molecular dynamics.
DFCTI coordinates the National Grid Infrastructure (NGI-RO), the Romanian LHC Grid Federation (RO-LCG), and the National Grid for Physics Research and Related Fields (GriNFiC). It also provides the leadership of the Romanian Association for Promotion of Advanced Computational Methods in Scientific Research (ARCAS), which is observer member within the PRACE consortium.
