A group of us in the UCD CASL were awarded €620,000 as part of a successful grant application under the 2007 SFI Equipment Call. This is a great success for CASL as the grant involved researchers from 4 different schools (Computer Science & Informatics, Mathematical Sciences, Electrical, Electronic & Mechanical Engineering, and Geological Sciences). This equipment supports large-scale experiments with complex multimedia sensing and processing at terabyte scales.
UCD’s Complex and Adaptive Systems Laboratory (CASL) is a collaborative research laboratory which leverages the unique mix of expertise at UCD in various fields. CASL puts computer scientists, information scientists, mathematicians, electronic engineers, geologists, biologists and ﬁnancial academics in the same space to work on grand-challenge problems.
CASL brings together 25 nationally- and internationally-funded and recognised principle investigators (PIs) with over 150 graduate and post-doctoral researchers from the UCD Schools of Business, Computer Science and Informatics, Electrical, Electronic & Mechanical Engineering, Geological Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, and the UCD Conway Institute for Biomolecular and Biomedical Research. These are organised into overlapping thematic areas including informatics, sensor systems, computational biology, computational and data-intensive science, and mathematical finance.
