Institution Background

The University of Valladolid is a public university in the city of Valladolid, province of Valladolid, in the autonomous region of Castile-Leon, Spain. Established in the 13th century, it is one of the oldest universities in the world. The university has 32,000 undergraduate students and more than 2,000 teachers.

The University of Valladolid (UVa) is a Spanish public university founded in 1241 as removal of studies at the University of Palencia, founded by Alfonso VIII of Castile, between 1208 and 1212. It is responsible for teaching higher education in seven campuses distributed through four cities of Castile and Leon: Valladolid, Palencia, Soria and Segovia.


Research Group Background

The TRASGO group, located in the ETS Informática and led by Dr. Diego R. Llanos and Dr. Arturo Gonzalez-Escribano, consists on six PhD and MsC students. It was formed in 2006 and it is focused in two different fields. The first one is the research on new programming models, considering both compile-time and runtime issues. The second one is the development of embedded solutions for Intelligent Transport Systems, considering both on-board devices and high-level services and V2V communications. More information about our research and publications can be found at   http://www.infor.uva.es/~diego/publications.html.


Dr Diego R. Llanos received his MS and PhD degrees in Computer Science from the University of Valladolid, Spain, in 1996 and 2000, respectively. He is a recipient of the Spanish government’s national award for academic excellence. Dr. Llanos is Associate Professor of Computer Architecture at the Universidad de Valladolid, and his research interests include parallel and distributed computing, automatic parallelization of sequential code, and embedded computing. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE Computer Society and Senior Member of the ACM. He has published more than 80 journal and conference papers. More information about his current research activities can be found at http://www.infor.uva.es/~diego.
