(Heterogenous and Parallel Computing Lab)

 The HPC-Lab is directed by Professor  Anne C. Elster and consists of her graduate students and affiliate members. The lab is part of the Dept. of Computer Science (IDI) at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway.

Current Research Foci: 

  • High Performance Computing (HPC) incl. Supercomputing. Cluster, GRID and Cloud computing
    • Parallel scientific software environments including machine learning based auto-tuning and load balancing.
    • Parallel algorithms and optimization for novel heterogeneous architectures and accelerators including GPUs.

See Research for more details.

The Opening of HPC-Lab in Oct 2008 was featured in digi.no, one of Norway's most popular online IT-paper sites. https://www.digi.no/artikler/ntnu-vil-lage-de-kuleste-pc-ene/207850
