West University of Timișoara (UVT)

West University of Timisoara (UVT) is the largest high education institution in the West side of Romania. It celebrates 75 years of public services in 2019. In the last five years, UVT was positioned in around 20 international rankings in the top 4 Romanian universities and has constantly 4 on-going actions per year from H2020. The activities who have helped to this achievement are strongly related to the research activities in exact sciences (e.g. the publications of the Physics Department leaded UVT in Shanghai classification). The Computer Science Department has contribute substantially to the international visibility of the UVT through the results of the RDI activities of international collaborative projects. The research team was involved in the last 10 years in more than 20 collaborative projects funded by European Commission in the frame of FP6/FP7/CIP/H2020 programmes in the field of Distributed/Parallel Computing (currently related to Cloud and HPC) and Artificial Intelligence (currently related to Big Data). Beyond these actions, the team is working in the frame of ESA and national projects. 

Dr. Dana PETCU is Professor at Computer Science Department  of the  West University of Timisoara, scientific manager of its supercomputing center, and CEO of the research spin-off Institute e-Austria Timisoara (IeAT). Her interest in distributed and parallel computing is reflected in more than two hundred papers about Cloud, Grid, Cluster or HPC computing. She is and was involved in several projects funded by European Commission and other research funding agencies, as coordinator (2 FP7), scientific coordinator (1 FP7), or local team leader (over 10 H2020/FP7/FP/CIP); currently involved in H2020- FET-HPCASPIDE and leading national PN-III BID (Big Data Science). She is chief editor of the open-access journal Scalable Computing: Practice and Experience.
