About us

HPC Architecture and Application Research Center is part of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing at the University of Zagreb. The focus of our research group is the design of high-performance, energy-efficient, application-specific computing systems. Throughout our research activities, we address the hot-topic challenges for both: embedded and HPC systems such as energy efficiency, architectural and algorithmic optimizations of compute intensive applications.

High-Performance Computing as we know it today is experiencing unprecedented changes, encompassing all levels from technology to use cases. To fully harness the potential of future HPC, it is of paramount importance that technology and architecture fully match the demand of emerging application scenarios. On one hand, the escalating quest for performance/power efficiency is increasingly requiring deep application-based customization of the underlying computing architecture. On the other hand, new delivery models, such as outsourced and cloud-based HPC, are dramatically widening the amount and the type of HPC demand, posing both promising opportunities and big challenges for future HPC.
