Abstract: High Performance Computing (HPC) is commonly used for scientific research in areas such as life sciences, earth sciences or computer sciences. My research aims to extend the application of the technology to social sciences. In this presentation, I am going to start with an introduction to HPC and parallel simulation, which will be followed by an explanation of its application in population dynamics. The main objective of the research is to understand the effect of transnational migration to society, and specifically to understand the recent phenomenon of immigration in Spain.
