BIOCOMPUTATION & COMPLEX SYSTEMS PHYSICS INSTITUTE (BIFI)
The Institute for Biocomputation and Physics of Complex Systems (BIFI) of the University of Zaragoza is an innovative, young, dynamic and multidisciplinary research center which was founded in 2002 as part of a collective effort aimed at research in basic science and the development of new concepts, methods and tools related to Complex Systems research. Scientists and technical staff at the BIFI work together on a variety of scientific disciplines, such as: Biochemistry, Physics, Biology, Computing, Mathematics, Citizen Science, etc., sharing ideas, methods, etc. of their respective research lines to extract scientific conclusions, but also providing the society with practical solutions.
The Institute counts on a cutting-edge scientific equipment and on an important computing infrastructure housed in a local Supercomputing Centre (the second largest computer cluster in Spain). Such an infrastructure includes a wide range of technologies, such as HPC, shared memory, the cloud, distributed computing, among others.
Moreover, the BIFI has organized and hosted important scientific meetings and conferences. It holds a main conference every year, one year at the national level and another at the international one.
The Institute is funded by the Government of Aragon and the University of Zaragoza.
