Welcome to the High Performance Information Systems Laboratory (HPCLAB) at the Computer Engineering and Informatics Department (CEID), University of Patras.
The laboratory was founded by Professor T. S. Papatheodorou.
“HPCLab” is the original name given to the laboratory in 1990, since it consolidated the first in Greece activities and R&D projects in parallel computing. These were carried out in Patras since 1984 and included research, the first courses in parallel computing in Greece, projects funded by the European Union and national agencies, the introduction of a commercial parallel machine for the first time in Greece (Intel iPSC/2 hypercube), as well as the organization of the first (Athens 1987) and the third (Crete 1989) ACM – ICS conferences.
The formal full name is “High Performance Information Systems Laboratory”.
