YIC GACM Conference 2015


The YIC GACM conference focuses on bringing together young researchers and students working in the broad areas of computational science and engineering by offering a platform for discussions and collaborations.

The event will be held in direct sequence with the AC.CES conference, organized by the graduate school AICES. While the YIC and the GACM colloquium primarily approaches young researchers and students, the concept of AC.CES is based on invited speakers with high international recognition in their particular fields.

The YIC GACM 2015 will take place from July 20th through 23rd, 2015 at RWTH Aachen University.

AICES Principal Investigator Prof. Ming Hu Received Research Project Funding from German Research Foundation (DFG)


The AICES Professor Ming Hu will receive funding from the German Research Foundation (DFG) for his project about thermal transport of novel two-dimensional silicon. The graphene's success created a new era in materials science, especially in 2-D materials. Structurally, the silicon counterpart of graphene is called silicene, i.e. the Si atoms can also form one-atom thick honeycomb crystal structure. The project is about the theoretical investigation of fundamentals underlying the thermal transport of silicene structures as novel two-dimensional material for emerging technologies.

The project funding is going to start in 2015.

Congratulations Ming!

Charlemange Distinguished Lecture Series: AICES Welcomes Prof. J. Tinsley Oden


Twice a year, the AICES fellows organize the prestigious Charlemagne Lecture, whose objective is to invite persons, who have achieved impressive accomplishments throughout their career and, in this sense, to get inspired by their scientific achievements. As the 10th speaker, the AICES fellows invited Professor J. Tinsley Oden, who is is the founding Director of the Institute for Computational Engineering Science at the University of Texas at Austin.

Professor Oden is going to give a talk on "Adaptive Validation and Error Estimation of Coarse-Grained Models of Atomic Systems" on April 21, 2015 at 4:00 pm in the Generali Hall of Super C (6th floor). Admission is free and all interested people are cordially invited.

Prof. Bientinesi Receives DFG Project Funding


Professor Paolo Bientinesi will receive funding from the German Research Foundation (DFG) for the project "CLAK: An Automatic Environment for Linear Algebra Equations". Starting on May 1st, AICES alumnus Dr. Diego Fabregat Traver will be funded through this project as a postdoctoral researcher.

The project centers around the development of CLAK, a domain-specific compiler targeting linear algebra problems. In a nutshell, given the description of a matrix equation expressed in the standard mathematical notation of vectors, matrices, and tensors, CLAK will automatically produce algorithms and high-performance routines for shared-memory architectures. The ultimate goal is a dramatic increase in productivity for engineers and computational scientists.

Congratulations to Paolo & Diego.

Prof. Ming Hu and Dr. Tobias Luginsland receive RWTH Start-Up Funding


The RWTH Start-Up provides initial project funding for early-career researchers in order to foster their scientific autonomy and profile. This year, Prof. Dr. Ming Hu and Dr. sc. Tobias Luginsland have been awarded with the Place-to-Be RWTH-Startup Funding.

The funded project of Dr. sc. (ETH) Tobias Luginsland, Postdoctoral Associate at AICES since July 2014, starts in early 2015 and aims at contributing to the understanding of fundamental membrane-wing aerodynamics at insect scale. To this end the Fluid-Structure-Interaction (FSI) of insect wings with the surrounding air during flapping flight will be investigated numerically.

A Place-to-Be RWTH-Startup Funding has also been awarded to Prof. Dr. Ming Hu, a junior research group leader at AICES. The overall goal of the funded project is to perform fundamental theoretical investigations of thermoelectric transport properties of hybrid organic/inorganic superlattices as potentially high efficiency thermoelectrics, by obtaining full ZT values through atomistic simulations.

Congratulations Ming and Tobias!

AICES Fellow Stephan Schaller Has Passed His Doctoral Exam


Stephan Schaller studied Engineering Cybernetics at the University of Stuttgart and he obtained his Diploma in Engineering in 2009.

After that, he became an AICES fellow and received his doctoral degree in December 2014. His thesis on "Automated Optimal Glycaemic Control using a Physiology-Based Pharmacokinetic/Pharmacodynamic Model" had been advised by Professor Schuppert and Professor Mitsos.

Stephan works as a Biological Modeling Expert at Bayer Technology Services GmbH in Leverkusen, Germany.

Congratulations, Stephan!

Associated AICES Fellow Represents RWTH Aachen Student Chapter during SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering in March 2015


Associated AICES fellow Stefanie Günther will represent the RWTH Aachen Student Chapter during the SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering in Salt Lake City, Utha in March 2015.

The SIAM CSE conference seeks to enable in-depth technical discussions on a wide variety of major computational efforts on large-scale problems in science and engineering, foster the interdisciplinary culture required to meet these large-scale challenges, and promote the training of the next generation of computational scientists.

With such events the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) wants to ensure strong interaction between mathematics and other scientific and technological communities. The activities of student chapters can include lunch discussions about career opportunities in applied mathematics and computational science, lectures given by guest speakers, team projects such as undergraduate competitions, social functions, and field trips to industrial laboratories or SIAM section meetings.

Wolfgang Schröder Has Been Awarded an RWTH Fellowship


In November 2014 AICES Principal Investigator Wolfgang Schröder was appointed RWTH Fellow. The title was awarded during the Melatener Gespräche 2014 and honors his outstanding research achievements that have significantly contributed to the University's success. This prize comprises an award sum of 50.000 Euros which can be used to support research activities.

The RWTH Fellows program was introduced as part of the Place to Be measure within the framework of the Excellence Initiative. Deans nominate candidates from their faculty. A selection committee then makes a decision with the help of external reviewers. Selected nominees are appointed for the duration of their employment at RWTH Aachen.

Young Researcher Award for Interdisciplinary Research Project


This year's Young Researcher Award was granted to the interdisciplinary research project “Individualized Production in Tool-based Manufacturing Processes Using Numerical Optimization.” The project members, among others Dr. Stefanie Elgeti , Roland Siegbert and Markus Frings , have developed solutions to reduce the very time- and cost-intensive production of tools with the help of virtual design and process optimization methods.

The Young Researcher Award, honored by the Excellence Cluster "Integrative Production Technology for High-Wage Countries”, supports young research teams whose activities significantly contribute to advancing integrative production engineering.

Congratulation Stefanie, Roland and Markus!
