History

Department on Parallel Algorithms was established in 1985. It was founded as a department on High-performance Systems and Algorithms for Parallel Processing (HSAPP). The main idea was to coordinate research in the field of Computer Science and Computer Technology done by scientists from Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Bulgarian Universities and some Institutes belonging to the Industry. In a short time many senior scientists as well as young mathematicians and computer science specialists were attached to the group and in only one year HSAPP took a leading position in Bulgaria in the field of Computer Science and Computer Technology. In 1999 HSAPP was separated in three parts - Department on Parallel Algorithms (DPA), Department on Scientific Computations and Department on High-performance Computer Architectures.

DPA has been, and still is, an active participant in a number of research and educational projects of the EU programs FP5, INCO-COPERNICUS, GO EAST GO WEST, etc. as well as in NATO Scientific Programs for cooperation between EC and Eastern Europe.

A lot of the scientists of DPA has been on long-term specializations in USA, UK, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, etc. The staff of DPA participated in the organization of many international conferences and workshops.
