Since its creation, the National Institute of Space Research has been an international reference in the collection, analysis and distribution of environmental and space sensor data, and in applied research involving this data. It is also a specialist in the creation and implementation of numerical models and simulations of phenomena related to climate, time and space.
The postgraduate program in Applied Computing (CAP) brings together researchers and students involved in the research, creation, implementation and testing of software, computational solutions and models to support INPE research. Although many research applications are focused on specific problems in Brazil (or related to demand of INPE researchers in the applied areas of the Institute), CAP maintains several international collaborations, through individual projects of its professors, exchange of researchers, etc. One objective of this project is to strengthen the international collaborations of the program by increasing the opportunities for exchange of teachers and students and the creation of thematic research networks that can lead to proposals for joint projects and publications with foreign researchers; considering the experience of international partners in topics of interest of the program. It also aims to pass on knowledge about different areas, in particular seeking experiences can be incorporated into program and challenges can be solved together.
As the postgraduate program in Applied Computing works together with all other graduate programs of INPE, a third objective of this project is to seek, through the partner programs, acquisition of knowledge in new methodologies and technologies for modeling and processing of data from various sensors (astronomical, geophysical, environmental, meteorological, etc.).
The themes of this research proposal are: Research in High Performance Processing; Research in Storage and Retrieval of Space-Time Information; Research in Modeling of Earth and Space Systems; Research in Mining and Analysis of Earth and Space Data; and Research and Development of Scientific Software.
