About Us

HPC Lab carries out research on algorithms and systems addressing  computational-, and data-intensive problems arising in scientific, business, social, and knowledge-based applications. Our advanced solutions exploit high performance techniques and tools to deal with the exponential growth of users, data, knowledge and services that need to be efficiently stored, managed, analyzed and retrieved.

The main research topics are: Web Search, Data and Web Mining, Cloud and P2P Systems, Service Oriented Architectures. The group is composed of about 20 people involved in several projects including the running EC projects Midas, Contrail, IngeoClouds, eCloud, and  the national  projects Secure!, RIS  and MOTUS. We have very close ongoing collaborations and exchanges with outstanding international partners from both industry and academia. Past PhD students of HPC Lab work now  for highly-reputed companies such as Yahoo (labs of Barcelona and London), Tiscali istella, Facebook, Twitter.

HPC Lab is part of the Istituto di Scienza e Tecnologie dell’Informazione “A. Faedo” (ISTI), the largest institute of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) involved in ICT Research. The laboratory is located in the CNR Research Area of Pisa.
