About MADALGO

Center for Massive Data Algorithmics (MADALGO) is a basic research center funded by the Danish National Research Foundation. The center is a collaboration between researchers at Aarhus University, Denmark, the Max-Planck-Institute for Informatics and Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main in Germany and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in  the US; the center cite is at Aarhus University.

Motivation and purpose

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.typo3/alt_doc.php?edit[tt_content][26856]=edit&columnsOnly=bodytext, rte_enabled&noView=0&returnUrl=/about-madalgo/

Acronym
