Address : prospect Akademika Lavrentjeva, 6, Novosibirsk, 630090, Russia.
Founded in 1964, the Computing Centre (now ICMMG) of SB RAS has been engaged in
research on computational and applied mathematics in such areas as the modelling of processes in the atmosphere and ocean, environmental protection
problems, methods of mathematical modelling in geophysics, geophysical
informatics, simulation of informatics systems, telecommunication systems,
software for supercomputers.
ICMMG consists of 19 scientific laboratories, 16 of
which are united at 6 non-structural departments. The personnel of the Institute
is 298 workers including 184 scientists. There are 46 Professors and 84 PhD among them.
Since 1994 the investigations of the ICMMG are supported
by the Russian Foundation of Basic Research (RFBR) and
Russian Science Foundation (RSCF).
Research is supported by the state scientific programs "Perspective Information Technologies", "Informatization of Russia", "Global Changes of Environment and
Climate" and "World Ocean".
ICMMG is the base institution for the Chair on Numerical
Mathematics, the Chair on Mathematical Methods of Geophysics, the Chair
on Computing Systems at the Novosibirsk State University; the Chair on Parallel
Computing Technologies, the Chair on Networks Information Technology at the Novosibirsk
University, the Chair on Image Processing at the Siberian State Academy of Geodesy.
ICMMG has the state license for postgraduate education on seven specialities:
Computational mathematics; System analysis, management and treatment of
information; Mathematical and software supplying of computers, computer systems
and computer networks; Telecommunication systems and computer networks;
Mathematical modelling, numerical methods, and software systems; Physics of
atmosphere and hydrosphere; Geoinformatics.
