The main motivation behind the center is the rapid increasing availability of massive high-quality data, and the desire to be able to access and process this data on many diverse computing platforms.
The main high-level objective of the center is to significantly advance fundamental algorithmic knowledge in the massive data processing area.
The center covers all areas of the design, analysis and implementation of algorithms and data structures for processing massive data (interpreted broadly to cover computations where data is large compared to the computational resources), with focus on four core research areas
The center builds on a strong international core research team and on a vibrant international environment at the main center site at Aarhus University.
MADALGO's core researchers are a team of eight world leading researchers
located at four major algorithms research institutions:
