Marcin Zielinski

Developments in multi-core and multi-node systems


Marcin is an HPC Specialist at Clustervision since 2013. Prior to this, Marcin advised the Supercomputing group within SURFsara in The Netherlands, providing a wide range of technical support for the users of the National Supercomputer (Huygens) and National Cluster (Lisa), and co-leading one of the most important tasks within the PRACE Third Implementation Phase (PRACE 3IP) project. Marcin holds a Ph.D. in Theoretical and Computational Chemistry from Utrecht University in The Netherlands, where he also worked as a research assistant within the Theoretical Chemistry group for 4 years.

Marco van Goethem

High-Tech Business vs HPC Institute


Marco is a modelling and testing expert at Technip Benelux BV since 2010. Prior to this, Marco was responsible for the development of the SPYRO(r), an equation based simulation package to predict the amount of ethylene from steam cracking furnaces and the NOX Post Processor, a tool to predict NOx in flue gasses from furnaces. For these simulation tools , he received the Technip's Jacques Franquelin award. Marco holds a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands. Having over 15 years of experience in the modelling of ethylene production and combustion processes and a doctoral research project makes Marco a technical expert for Process Modelling, Numerical Mathematics, and High Performance Computing.

Maurice Bouwhuis

High-Tech Business vs HPC Institute


Maurice Bouwhuis obtained his PhD in Physics at Utrecht University while working in the field of experimental nuclear physics at Nikhef, the national institute for subatomic physics. He has worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the USA and at a high-energy physics laboratory in Hamburg, Germany, where he participated in the HERMES experiment. In this period, his interest shifted from pure experimental physics to large scale-data processing and computation. Bouwhuis joined SURFsara in 2004, first as a senior consultant and as from 2006 as leader of the 'eScience & Cloud Services' group. This group aims to support scientists with the deployment of advanced ICT, and is up to date with all major scientific disciplines. Since 2011, Bouwhuis is relations and innovation manager at SURFsara.

Kees Vuik

Innovation through HPC & applied math


Kees Vuik obtained his MSc in Applied Mathematics at the Delft University of Technology in 1982. After a short stay at the Philips Research Laboratories, he obtained his PhD in Mathematics at Utrecht University in 1988. Thereafter he became employed at the Delft University of Technology, where he holds the position of full professor of the Numerical Analysis research group. In 2007 he additionally became director of the Delft Center of Computational Science and Engineering. Finally in 2011 he became Scientific Director of 3TU.AMI Applied Mathematics Institute.
