Welcome to the homepage of the Bulgarian IST Centre of Competence in 21 Century (BIS-21++)

The BIS-21++ project is carried out within the Sixth Framework Programme 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.
