Parallel Computing and Optimisation Group


The Parallel Computing & Optimisation group is headed by Prof. Pascal Bouvry and Dr Grégoire Danoy as Deputy Head. The group  conducts research on parallel computing, search and optimization techniques, in particular new research topics include decentralized optimization techniques that nevertheless lead to a good global behavior of the system. The team is specialised in large-scale discrete/combinatorial problems.

The main application domains of the team fit the University of Luxembourg priorities:

  • Security, trust and reliability, for example, cryptology, intrusion detection, and reliable scheduling and routing on new generations of networks such as p2p, ad-hoc, and hybrids.
  • Unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAV), Smart Cities
  • Sustainable development, for instance, Energy Efficient Data Centers
  • Systems biomedecine, for example, genomic sequencing, protein folding, genomic modeling

Laufende Forschungsprojekte

HUNTED - Heterogeneous multi-swarms of UNmanned auTonomous systEms for mission Deployment

Zeitrahmen: 15. August 2018 - 14. August 2021
Finanzierung: ONRG - NICOP
Teilnehmer: BOUVRY, Pascal (Projektleiter), DANOY, Grégoire (Co-Investigator), STOLFI ROSSO, Daniel (Research Associate)


The HUNTED project proposes a new generation of mobility models for autonomous and heterogeneous UAS swarms that combines a bio-inspired cooperative approach with the power of chaotic dynamics and adaptive clustering. These disruptive models will stand out thanks to a first of its kind integration of state-of-the-art solutions that will …

PRACE-6IP - PRACE Sixth Implementation Phase

Zeitrahmen: 1. April 2019 - 30. September 2021
Finanzierung: EC - H2020
Partnerorganisationen: Forschungszentrum Jülich
Teilnehmer: BOUVRY, Pascal (Projektleiter), VARRETTE, Sébastien (Forscher), KRISHNASAMY, Ezhilmathi (Research Associate)


This proposal addresses the continuation of support for the world-class pan-European HPC infrastructure PRACE. This includes its further expansion for both academia and industry, while providing state-of-the-art services that can be accessed by users regardless of their location. A unique catalogue of services is provided by PRACE 2 and complemented …

STAIRS - Toward A.I. Recommitment Strategies for ESG integration in Private Equity

Zeitrahmen: 1. Januar 2021 - 31. August 2021
Finanzierung: EIB - STAREBEI
Partnerorganisationen: European Investment bank
Teilnehmer: BOUVRY, Pascal (Projektleiter), KIEFFER, Emmanuel (Forscher)


The rise of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors has been one of the major changes for private equity partners. ESG considerations have redesigned the standards of due diligence and add new objectives on top of financial statements and growth plans. Building private equity portfolios remains a real challenge for …
