The research activity has been carried out in the field of information processing technology and systems, with reference to distributed, massively-parallel and adaptive approaches, from the points of view of hardware, computational paradigms, and intensive-computing applications. In particular, the following areas have been addressed.

Researches performed in these areas are strictly related since they focus on advanced performances and characteristics, even if they consider different abstraction levels. The main goals have been the development of highly adaptive functionalities and systems, the definition of structures and computational approaches having high computational performance, and the definition of advanced fault tolerance capabilities. Studies and implementations have been carried out with the purpose of integrating the theoretical analysis with the definition of methodologies and tools to achieve practical results efficiently.

These researches have been carried out within national and international projects, in cooperation with Italian universities (University of Bologna, Brescia, Genova, Modena, Pavia, Padova, Salerno, Trento, Udine, Politecnico di Bari, Politecnico di Torino), foreign universities (Austin - TX-USA, Berkeley - CA-USA, Boulder - CO-USA, Erlangen - Germany, George Mason University - VA-USA, Karlsruhe - Germany, Massey - New Zealand, Minsk - Belarus, Singapore), research centers (Academy of the Sciences of the Belarus - Belarus, Academy of the Sciences of the URSS - Moscow-URSS, ASI - Italian Space Agency, CNR IEIIT - Istituto di Elettronica e di Ingegneria dell’Informazione e delle Telecomunicazioni - Sezione di Milano, Consorzio Crema Ricerche, Consorzio Padova Ricerche, CSELT-Torino-Italy, IRST-Trento-Italy, CERN-Switzerland), and industries (C.R.F. - FIAT, Edison, ENEL, Gilardoni, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Italtel S.I.T., Philips, Selenia, ST Microelectronics, Tecnogamma, Trumpf, Alenia Spazio, Laben, Planetek, Space Sofware Italia, IMAL).
