Centre for Unified Computing (CUC)
The Centre for Unified Computing is a research group based at University College Cork, Ireland. Our primary research interests are High Performance and Distributed Computing, with related work being performed in numerous areas such as Peer-to-Peer Computing, Autonomics, Security, Reconfigurable Computing and Economic Models.
We are perhaps best known for WebCom, a metacomputing environment that has been the focus of many years of research. Much of our work, including WebCom, stems from the Condensed Graphs model of computing developed by the group's founder, Prof. John Morrison.
The group has been in existence for almost a decade and is currently composed of three academic staff members, four postdoctoral researchers and ten postgraduate students. Over this period we have attracted significant amounts of funding, written a large number of published papers, hosted several events and participated in a number of collaborations with outside researchers.
