Student Research Symposium

HiPC 2015 will feature the 8th Student Research Symposium on High Performance Computing (HPC) aimed at stimulating and fostering student research, and providing an international forum to highlight student research accomplishments. The symposium will also provide exposure to students in the best practices in HPC in academia and industry.

The one-day symposium, to be held on day one of the conference (Wednesday, ) will feature brief presentations by student authors on their research followed by a poster exhibit. Invited talks by leading HPC researchers/ practitioners will be included in the SRS program. Experts scheduled to speak include Vianney Koelman from Shell whose talk is titled Bits, Bytes, Barrels: HPC in the Energy Industry, and Raghu Ramakrishnan from Microsoft whose talk is titled Big Data@Microsoft.

The Conference Reception and Student Symposium Poster Exhibit will provide an opportunity for students to interact with HPC researchers and practitioners (and recruiters) from academia and industry.

Awards for Best Paper and Best Poster, sponsored by IEEE Technical Committee for Parallel Processing, will be presented at the symposium. An online book containing the resumes of the students participating in the symposium will be compiled and made available to the sponsors of the HiPC 2015 conference.

Bio: Vianney Koelman
Vianney Koelman joined Shell R&D in the Netherlands in 1989 and subsequently pursued a career in Upstream Operating Units in the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. He worked in a variety of Petroleum Engineering Leadership roles such as Head Reservoir Management Brent, and Chief Petrophysicist Europe and Africa. In 2008 Vianney joined Shell’s Projects and Technology organization and established a global Fiber-Optic Sensing R&D group. In 2010 he got appointed as Shell Chief Scientist, and in 2012 also as Vice President Computational Technology. In the latter role he is leading Shell’s Computational R&D and tasked to establish a Computational Centre of Expertise in Bangalore introducing novel Computational Technologies to the Shell Group.

Bio: Raghu Ramakrishnan
Raghu Ramakrishnan heads the Cloud and Information Services Lab (CISL) in the Data Platforms Group at Microsoft, and leads development for the Big Data team. From 1987 to 2006, he was a professor at University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he wrote the widely-used text “Database Management Systems” and led a wide range of research projects in database systems (e.g., the CORAL deductive database, the DEVise data visualization tool, SQL extensions to handle sequence data) and data mining (scalable clustering, mining over data streams). In 1999, he founded QUIQ, a company that introduced a cloud-based question-answering service. He joined Yahoo! in 2006 as a Yahoo! Fellow, and over the next six years served as Chief Scientist for the Audience (portal), Cloud and Search divisions, driving content recommendation algorithms (CORE), cloud data stores (PNUTS), and semantic search (“Web of Things”).
