Laboratory for High Performance Scientific Computing and Computer Simulation
(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,
- study and design robust and efficient numerical algorithms
and software packages for solving large scale scientific
and engineering problems on high performance computers;
- develop and evaluate software tools and problem
solving environments for facilitating parallel and
distributed simulation and visualization;
- develop highly accurate and highly efficient computational
methods and numerical schemes for simulating physical and
processes with a focus on applications in computational fluid
- simulate semiconductor dopant diffusion processes;
- simulate heat transport process in thin films;
- simulate laminar diffusion flames and other
- simulate internal and external compressible flow field
in airplane modeling;
- develop efficient algorithms and software for large scale
data mining and information retrieval;
- develop efficient computational algorithms for bioinformatics and
- promote and popularize high performance scientific computing
techniques and practice in general science and engineering research
and industrial activities.
The HiPSCCS Lab has been supported by internal and external grants
The HiPSCCS Lab provides online support for one
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.
