(The HiPSCCS Lab)


Mission Statement and Research Areas of the HiPSCCS Lab


The Laboratory for High Performance Scientific Computing and Computer Simulation (HiPSCCS Lab) is a research and training unit in the Computer Science Department at University of Kentucky. Current research activities of the HiPSCCS Lab include, but are not limited to, the following:

Since 2003, the research focus of the HiPSCCS has been on computational information science, information retrieval, data mining, medical informatics.

The HiPSCCS Lab has been supported by internal and external grants from

The HiPSCCS Lab provides online support for one international journals

The HiPSCCS Lab provides office space and resources for training graduate and undergraduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and visitors, in high performance scientific computing and numerical simulation. Since January 1, 2002, the HiPSCCS Lab only sponsors research training at the Ph.D. level or above. No Masters students are accepted. Short term undergraduate interns are accepted.

The HiPSCCS Lab, together with other faculty members with similar interests, sponsors a regular seminar series in numerical analysis and scientific computing.

The HiPSCCS Lab would like to establish active and stable collaboration with similar research laboratories and groups within the U.S. and around the world.
