Theodore Papatheodorou has held several academic and consulting positions in Greece and the United States. Since 1984 he has been a Professor at the Department of Computer Engineering and Informatics of the University of Patras, the first Computer Science/Engineering Department in Greece. He developed the HPCLab of the University of Patras, which now employs about fifty faculty members, graduate researchers and computer engineers. Currently he is the Director of this laboratory. He also initiated the establishment of the Computer Technology Institute (CTI). As the first Director of CTI (1985-1990) he led the Institute’s development and R&D work. Prof. Papatheodorou has received wide recognition for his work and several international awards. Most recent distinctions include the Best Paper Award in Supercomputing, Dallas, Texas, November 2000, the first prize in the Moebius Competition (Hellenic Section) for the CD-ROM on the life of Melina Merkouri, and the selection of this CD-ROM in the top 4 in Europe (Europrix Competition – Cultural Section). He has authored numerous publications in several areas of Computer Engineering and Computer Science.
