About Us

The Cloud and Distributed Systems Lab (CLOUDLAB) brings together a multi-disciplinary team that addresses key lines of research in distributed systems. It has experience in scalable systems (cloud computing, serverless architectures, distributed storage, peer-to-peer), distributed artificial intelligence, big data analysis in the cloud (Genomics and Metabolomics), citizen science and web/mobile infrastructures

The research group focuses on the modeling, design, implementation and analysis of parallel and distributed systems and algorithms (Cloud, Edge). Its research includes the construction of system prototypes to demonstrate the quality of the proposed solutions and the development of different software



With extensive experience in European and national research projects on Cloud Computing and Big Data, we have more than 15 projects granted over the years. Currently we participate in 4 European projects: CLOUDSTARS, NEARTADA and CloudSkin, as coordinator and EXTRACT, as partner. We have also received Next Generation funds for the CLOUDLESS project where we want to develop a data space platform.

The group maintains contacts with several foreign universities and companies (France, Germany, United Kingdom and the United States) that allow it to stay abroad or receive students and researchers at the center. Some of the results and developed prototypes have been published in various state and international congresses, scientific journals and books.
