    Short Resume

    Eleftherios Polychronopoulos received his BSc degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and his Ph.D. from the University of Patras, in computer science and computer engineering respectively. In 1990 he joined the High Performance Information Systems Laboratory (HPCLab) of the Computer Engineering & Informatics Department at the University of Patras as a graduate research assistant where he worked on several research projects in the area of parallel and distributed processing.

    Between 1997 and 2001 he was responsible for the IT management of the Computer Engineering and Informatics Department's computing and networking infrastructure. In 2002 he joined the faculty of the Computer Engineering & Informatics Department of the University of Patras, where he has been teaching and researching in the areas of parallel and distributed computing, Grid computing, and high performance 3D graphics. He has participated in several National and European research projects, has been a reviewer for ACM and IEEE conferences, and has served on Program Committees of ACM and IEEE conferences.

    He has also supervised numerous undergraduate and graduate theses on research topics ranging from locality enhancing methods for memory hierarchies to software models for shared memory parallel computing and high performance graphics applications. Dr. Polychronopoulos and his graduate student's research results have been published at various conferences and journals.
