High Performance Computing Lab
Dr. Aamir Shafi, Samin Khaliq, Hammad Siddiqi, Umar Butt, Aftab Hussain, Faisal Zahid, Syed Akbar Mehdi

SEECS has established a High Performance Computing (HPC) Center, which is the first of its own kind in the Pakistani academia. This HPC center comprises of Sun's mainframe supercomputers like the Sun Fire V890 and clusters built with Sun Ultra and SunBlade workstations. An objective of this high performance facility is to conduct research, development, and evaluation of parallel programming libraries, languages, and paradigms. This high performance computing center aspires to support scientific computing ranging from forming cosmological structures like galaxies to modeling neurons that form the basis of a brain.

Data Engineering for Large Scale Applications Research Group - DELSA
Dr. Sharifullah Khan, Dr. Khalid Latif, Owais Malik, Aatif Kamal, Muhammad Bilal, Azhar Maqsood

The Data Engineering for Large Scale Applications (DELSA) research group explores semantics, databases, and interoperable systems in scientific and business domains. The research group aims at broadening the focus of database and data management techniques beyond their traditional scope. Currently on-going projects include data warehousing over distributed heterogeneous information sources, object-oriented database and transformation tools, semantic interoperability, heterogeneous database integration, distributed database design, semantic modeling in domains including bio-informatics and mobile query processing and query optimization, to just name a few. Our general methodology is to build systems to evaluate the feasibility and usefulness of our ideas as appropriate
