PlaFRIM at a glance

The Federative Platform for Research in Computer Science and Mathematics (known by its French acronym PlaFRIM) is a platform with a regional scope, built in partnership with the Bordeaux Institute of Mathematics and the Bordeaux Laboratory of Computer Science Research. Up and running since May 2010, the platform is designed to deploy high-performance computing resources for the design, development and intermediary validation of algorithms and scientific computation codes before their potential transfer to major national computation centres. It also serves as a “medium” for joint work carried out with our industrial and institutional partners.
