The project integrates a number of interconnected activities amongst which improving the research training of young scientists and active networking between the BIS-21++ team and leading partners from Europe. BIS-21++ topics include several IST priority areas - computer architectures (distributed and parallel computing), environmental mathematics, large-scale computations, computer networks, human language technologies, text compression technologies. The BIS-21++ project supports high quality training of PhD students within Work package 2 (WP2) - called Strengthening the scientific potential. One of the activities of WP2 is to organize numerous internal and national seminars where the results of the young researchers are presented.
