Opening ceremony of UAM-Fujitsu cooperation agreement

Today , March 17, 2014 , it took place the opening ceremony of  UAM-Fujitsu cooperation agreement at the Faculty of Sciences of the Autonomous University of Madrid.

The Autonomous University of Madrid signed last January 17 a cooperation agreement with Fujitsu to promote research and teaching in Scientific Computing and Big Data. The activities framed within this agreement have been officially opened today with a meeting between the major representatives of the Autonomous University of Madrid and nearby Research Institutes, other Universities in Madrid and the company Fujitsu .
Dr. Shigeru Sasaki , Vice President of Fujitsu Laboratories , showed the audience the latest advances and research lines that are currently under development to solve the problems affecting society from the point of view of computing and computer science. Their objective is to provide Fujitsu technology to create an intelligent and friendly society , with people as the center.
Dr. Sasaki stressed the need to develop efficient algorithms to describe real problems with an appropriate resolution and extract useful information from the vast amount of data we are able to store and handle, to solve the real problems of society.
Fujitsu Laboratories can become technological partners of those researchers able to develop algorithms that can provide solutions to the current challenges of society.
The Director and Deputy Director of the cooperation agreement, Fernando Martín and Alberto Luna, pointed out that this agreement should be an open space in which the entire university community can propose activities and projects aimed at both research and teaching in Scientific Computing and Big Data.
The event was attended by the vice-rector for Scientific Policy and Research Infrastructuresand, Rafael Garesse Alarcon, the vice-rector for Scientific Research, Nuria Fernandez Monslave, the exvicerector and promoter of UAM-Fujitsu agreement, José Dorronsoro , the Dean of the Faculty of Science, Jose Maria Carrascosa Baeza, the directors of the Institute for Theoretical Physics, Mathematics , Condensed Matter and IMDEA -Nanoscience , the director and deputy director of the UAM-Fujitsu agreement, various academics and supercomputer users from UAM and Carlos III University, and representatives of the Fujitsu company.
