Dr. Stefanie Elgeti becomes Co-Chair of EYIC

MAt the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS) Congress 2016, which took place during June 5-10, 2016 on the Crete Island, Greece, AICES Junior Research Group Leader Dr. Stefanie Elgeti was selected as a Co-Chair of the ECCOMAS Young Investigator Committee (EYIC). Over the term of four years, she will be heading the EYIC together with Dr. Alexander Popp from TU Munich. The EYIC groups together delegates of national and regional associations of computational mechanics and applied mathematics, and represents the interests of young scientists on the ECCOMAS executive committee. EYIC is also in charge of organizing the bi-annual Young Investigator Conference, such as the one that took place in Aachen in July 2015.

Dr. Philip Varghese visits AICES

From May 9th to May 13th Dr. Philip L. Varghese from the department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics of University of Texas at Austin visited AICES. Prof. Varghese is an expert in non-equilibrium gas flow modeling and high performance computing. During his visit he gave two presentations and interacted fruitfully with the groups of Prof. Dr. Paolo Bientinesi , Dr. Julia Kowalski , Prof. Dr. Heinz Pitsch and Prof. Dr. Manuel Torrilhon.

AICES Fellow Atanas Stavrev Has Passed his Doctoral Exam

Atanas Stavrev became AICES Fellow in 2012 and received his Ph.D. degree in May 2016. His thesis title on “NURBS – Enhanced Geometry Handling for Free-Surface Flow Problems and Immersed Boundary Methods“ has been advised by Dr. Elgeti

Atanas now works as management consultant at Campgemini Consulting.

Congratulations Atanas!

David Bommes wins the Young Researcher Award 2016

Every year, the Young Researcher Award at Eurographics is given to two young researchers, who have already made a notable contribution in their work field and are likely to make more. The intent of that award is, to recognize those people early in their career. This year the winners are Wenzel Jakob and David Bommes. David already won two awards at Eurographics in 2011 and 2013.

Prof. Dr. Bientinesi gets the approval for a second phase of the INTEL parallel computing project

Prof. Dr. Paolo Bientinesi leads the INTEL Parallel Computing Centre at RWTH Aachen. The current project there, deals with optimizing HPC software to take advantage of Intel Xeon processors, which are optimal for HPC workloads with parallel and serial components, and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors, which are the optimal choice for highly parallel workloads.

One topic that this project deals with, is the problem of multibody potentials, that go beyond the standart pairwise potentials normally used and incorporate three-body, four- body and sometimes many-body actions as well.

The project became the approval to be continued for a second phase.
