Welcome on the website of the Swiss Geocomputing Centre of the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. We are part of the Faculty of Geosciences and Environment. Our centre is mainly interested in the development of high-performance geocomputing applications and algorithms. It federates interdisciplinary research across natural and human sciences, regrouping different fields from the geosciences into a dynamic and method oriented team.

The centre, affiliated to the P2i platform, is also devoted to teaching for a wide range of BSc, MSc and PhD level classes at the University of Lausanne. Introduction classes for BSc are designed to acquire the basics of numerical modelling, while MSc classes offer to students a large variety of geocomputing related projects to train their skills. Teaching local student is an important step enhancing the lateral spreading of supercomputing as promoted by CADMOS and supported by the CSCS at a national level.
