EUC Colloquium on Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering

The EUC Colloquium on Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering  was established in November 2011 and is organized by the Department of Computer Science of the European University Cyprus. The purpose of Colloquium is to provide a forum to our colleagues, our current and potentially future collaborators as well as known scientists to meet, present research findings, and discuss developments on a variety of topics spanning all important fields of Computer Science and Engineering. It also aims to provide an environment in which graduate students can gain experience in presenting their work, and benefit from contact with established researchers. The scope of the colloquium includes all aspects of Computer science, including Networks, Software Engineering, Databases, Algorithms, Theoretical Computer Science, Human Computer Interaction, High Performance Computing, and Operational Research, as well as aspects of Mathematics and Engineering.

If you are interested in giving at talk at the Colloquium, please contact the coordinator Dr. Vicky Papadopoulou by filling out the Colloquium Form.

Next Talk


Assistant Professor Vicky Papadopoulou Lesta


Introduction to Parallel Computation/Programming (Part I)




 11:30 - 14:20




The talk will introduce the audience to parallel computing - what it is and how it's used, concepts and terminology associated with parallel computing. The topics of parallel memory architectures and programming models are then explored as well as parallel development tools such as OpenMP and MPI.

Short CV

Vicky Papadopoulou studied first at the University of Patras, where she received the Diploma in Computer Engineering and Informatics then pursed graduate studies in the same University, where she received the Master and Ph.D. degrees in 2001 and 2003, respectively. From May 2004 until July 2008, she was a Post-Doctorate Researcher in the Department of Computer Science, University of Cyprus. She was a Visiting Lecturer in the Department of Pharmacy at University of Patras, Greece (Winter semester 2003-2004) and in the Department of Computer Science at University of Cyprus, Cyprus (Spring Semester 2007-2008). She currently holds a full time Assistant Professorship in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the European University Cyprus. She taught Data Structure and Algorithms, Theory of Computation, Algorithms and Programming Languages courses. Her research interests span the Theory of Algorithms and Complexity, with focus on Algorithmic Game Theory, Computational Complexity, Graph Theory, Approximation and Combinatorial Algorithms, Distributed Systems and Computation, Frequency Assignment Problems and Mobile Computing. Her scientific results have been published in several journals of world wide recognition, such as Computer Networks, Algorithmic and Theoretical Computer Science journals. She also published her work in numerous well known conference proceedings. Her research has been supported by several Research and Development projects funded by the European Union and the Cypriot state. She served as Chair of the Organizing Committee of the 2nd International Symposium on Algorithmic Game Theory that took place in Paphos in October 2009. She is a regular reviewer in prestigious journals of Theoretical Computer Science, such as the Theoretical Computer Science journal.
