Brief Presentation

The Graphics, Multimedia and GIS Laboratory of the Computer Engineering & Informatics Department of the University of Patras was established in 1994. The educational and research work of the laboratory is being executed within the framework of the Department's Computer Software Section. The laboratory is housed in the Department's new buildings and uses modern computational equipment.

The primary activities of the laboratory include the following:

·         the support of the Computer Engineering & Informatics Department’s undergraduate education in the areas of: Data Structures, Advanced Data Structures and Graphics, Artificial Intelligence and Expert Systems, Models and Analysis of Computer Systems, Principles of Programming Languages and Compilers, Internet Technologies, Simulation of Information Systems.

·         the support of the Computer Engineering & Informatics Department's postgraduate education in the areas of: Theory of Basic Data Structures, Management of Multimedia in Databases, Information Retrieval.

·         the theoretical research conducting in areas such as Data Structures and Algorithms, Computational Geometry, Expert Systems, Distributed Systems' Performance Study, Storage of Very Large Data and Bioinformatics.

·         the development of Graphics, Multimedia, GIS, Medical Informatics and Telematics applications and tools within the frameworks of national and EU research projects and innumerable graduate studies of the Department (25 in average each year).
