About Us

The BEM4I library has been developed at IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center and Department of Applied Mathematics at VSB-Technical University of Ostrava since 2012. The team consists of researchers and Ph.D. students focused mainly on the computational mathematics.

The IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center is a research institution of the VSB-Technical University of Ostrava. The first part of the supercomputer, the Anselm cluster with theoretical peak performance of 94 TFLOPs, was installed into temporary mobile units in May 2013. The Salomon supercomputer listed in the top 50 most powerful supercomputers in the world (as of November 2015) was put into operation in July 2015. Its theoretical peak performance is 2 PFLOPs. In addition to operating the supercomputer, the IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Centre provides excellent research in the field of IT, namely HPC (High Performance Computing) and embedded systems. IT4Innovations is a member of the prestigious partnership of European supercomputing centres associated in the PRACE initiative.
