Integrative Scalable Computing Laboratory

ISCL is a research group at the Department of Information Technology at Uppsala University. PIs Andreas Hellander and Salman Toor.

Stochastic modeling & simulation

We often use stochastic descriptions to model complex systems. Many of our projects involve kinetic Monte Carlo, agent-based models and multiscale modeling. A reoccurring theme is how to leverage distributed e-infrastructure for simulations and how to use machine learning to construct approximations.

Artificial intelligence

A core theme in the group is the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to make software and infrastructure more efficient, interactive and scalable. We also do disciplinary research into specific areas of ML, such as likelihood-free inference and privacy-preserving federated machine learning.

Distributed computing

Our research in distributed computing and data engineering ranges from development of new ways to manage large and fast data to design and development of massively parallel, interactive, cloud native applications operating in cloud, fog and edge infrastructure.

Scalable Federated Machine Learning

Scalable Federated Machine Learning

Artificial intelligence is rapidly transforming our society. Machine learning models will be components in nearly every digital system we use. For this reason, there is an urgent need for methods and software that allows for development of state-of-the...


The group participates in the eSSENCE strategic initiative on eScience, focusing on eScience tools and technologies.

Scaleout Systems

Scaleout Systems is a spin-off from the group, focusing on privacy-preserving AI and cloud-native machine learning.
