Welcome to the homepage of the Bulgarian IST Centre of Competence in 21 Century
The BIS-21++ project is carried out within the Sixth
of the European commission (FP6-2004-ACC-SSA-2).
Its main objective is
to further strengthen the human potential and to reinforce the excellence
in education, science, and technology of the currently most established Bulgarian IST Centre
– the Institute for Parallel Processing
at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (IPP - BAS).
The project started on the 1st of May 2005.
BIS-21++ explicitly targets a
list of measurable outcomes which support training and improving the
human potential. All results
are internally assessed in due time. BIS-21++ is based on the
experience of IPP-BAS in training and RTD cooperation. After 2000,
the institute has been involved in 27 international and 17 national
projects which enabled its present top results. BIS-21++ adds
quite new value to BIS-21, Centre of Excellence ICA1-2000-70016, supported
by the EC in 2001-2004. BIS-21++ topics include several IST priority
areas and keywords as well as fields like computer architectures
(distributed and parallel computing), environmental mathematics,
large-scale computations, computer networks, human language technologies,
text compression technologies and fast search.
