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.

Congratulations David!

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.

Second AICES Fast- Track student Aravind Balan has passed his doctoral exam

Aravind Balan received his doctoral degree in Mechanical Engineering from AICES Graduate school. He is the second Fast- track student. This program offers a highly interdisciplinary fast- track research oriented training program, where the start of the doctoral research overlaps with the Master thesis work.

On May 2nd, he defended his doctoral thesis about “ Adjoint- based hp-adaptivity on anisotropic meshes for high-order compressible flow simulations”.

Now he works as a postdoctoral researcher at CERFACS in Toulouse, France.

Congratulations Aravind !

Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Dahmen co- organizes workshop on high-dimensional problems in Venice

From May 2nd to May 6th, the workshop on Challenges in High-Dimensional Analysis and Computation took place on San Servole Island, Venice. Prof Dr. Wolfgang Dahmen co- organized this conference together with Gérard Biau (UPMC, Paris), Albert Cohen (UPMC, Paris) and Ronald DeVore (Texas A&M, College Station), Its supported by ERC- Adv project and excellence initiative of RWTH Aachen University.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together experts from varioius fields like analysis, computational harmonic analysis, statistics, information based complexity, approximation theory and to initiate discussions on the current challenges and possible solutions for high-dimensional analysis and computational tasks.
