DIstributed Computing Environments (DICE) Team
We are a group of computer scientists and IT experts from the Department of Computer Science AGH and ACC Cyfronet AGH. We are a curiosity- and research-driven team, specializing in large-scale distributed computing, HPC, Web and Cloud technologies. We develop new methods, tools and environments and we apply these solutions in e-Science, healthcare and industrial domains.

Complex, large-scale, collaborative simulations are becoming more and more crucial for decision making in critical situations like floods, earthquakes, wildfires, terroristic attacks, epidemics, pandemics, instabilities in financial markets and similar.
Urgent computing is a new area of computer science addressing algorithms, methods and tools enabling prioritized and immediate access to large compute and storage systems (computers, grids, clouds) for such emergency computations required for clever decision making.
Urgent computing is still in development and the main aim of this workshop is to assess its current status and indentify the most important challenges. We invite users and developers of such applications, scientists working on methods and tools for urgent computing, resources providers, and decision makers to submit papers addressing topics related to urgent computing.


  • applications requiring emergency computations, including (but not limited to): urgent computing in the medical environment, disaster prediction and preventing using urgent computing, urgent computing applications in science and engineering
  • algorithms and methods of providing immediate access to large scale compute and storage facilities
  • tools, environment and middleware for urgent computing
  • data placement, resource management and optimization for urgent computing
  • solutions enabling collaboration in urgent computing
  • SLA and policies in urgent situations
  • methods implementing urgent computing on a voluntary user-by-user basis

Important dates

Papers should have 8 - 10 pages of the ICCS 2012 format and must be submitted only via the ICCS 2012 system.
