Helping to turn Information into Knowledge

The team of the Port d’Informació Científica (PIC) supports scientific groups working in projects which require strong computing resources for the storage and analysis of massive sets of distributed data

Services and Insfrastructures

Around 10000 high throughput cluster computing slots, a tape storage system with approximately 4500 tape slots with a capacity of 41PB, 15PB of disk storage within 60 storage servers in the core of our infrastructure


Particle Physics

The office coordinates and provides support to LHC activities (ATLAS, CMS, LHCb), Neutrino Physics experiments, VIP (Voxel Imaging PET), and many other (small) projects.


Astronomy and Cosmology

The Astrophysics and Cosmology works in collaboration with several groups dedicated to the investigation of astronomical concepts like CTA, MAGIC, DES, PAU, EUCLID and MICE among others.



In order to maintain our environment up to date and our commitment with our partners, it is needed that we work together to reach our goals. We are also inside collaborations as services providers.
