At the time of the school



CERN, Geneva - Switzerland

I was raised in Gran Canaria, a Spanish island near the African coast. There, I studied a M.Sc. in Computer Engineering at the ULPGC. Encouraged by my colleagues and friends, I decided to go abroad. I spent 6 months with an Erasmus scholarship in the German University FH NordAkademie, where I developed an eLearning platform based on Moodle and other tools. I later worked on my Master Thesis which focused on accessibility and usability on web applications. I graduated with distinction.  I am currently working as a Software Engineer in the European Organization for Nuclear Research -CERN- specialized in grid and web technologies. I have also worked at Ericsson in its R&D labs as a specialist on communication protocols. Among other things, I have participated as a Moodle mentor in the Google Summer of Code program.



Bergische Universität Wuppertal - Germany

I studied computer science at the University of Applied Sciences, Münster, and got my master's degree in 2007. In 2008, I started to work on my PhD thesis at the ATLAS working group of the University of Wuppertal. I am continuing development on the user space job monitoring software, JEM, created at Wuppertal, and focus on the user interface (integration in the job submission and management tool 'ganga') and a binary tracing module allowing to monitor.(athena-) user algorithms written in C++.


Luis Fernando MUNOZ MEJĺAS

CERN, Geneva - Switzerland

I am working on a central log service for the Computer Security Team, which should allow for easier identification of ongoing attacks and faster forensics analysis of . For this project I have already developed some modules for rsyslog (in C language), as well as some database designs and queries and scripts to use them (SQL, PL/SQL, Python, C, Perl). This task involves also some understanding on SELinux policies, how to write them and how to enforce minimum privileges. I'm also a skilled C++ programmer, although probably not as efficient as I am in Perl, Python, C and bash scripting which are my "working languages". Occasionally I maintain parts of Quattor for which I'm an author. I'm mostly familiar with Linux at systems administrator, user and low-level application levels, although have some knowledge of Windows.

Malte NUHN

RWTH, Aachen University - Germany

Malte Nuhn

Malte Nuhn is studying physics and computer science at RWTH Aachen University.  He is about to finish his physics Diploma in the field of Grid Computing and planning to graduate in computer science, soon. In his spare time, Malte likes hacking around Linux and free software projects.



STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Didcot – U.K.

I am a first year PhD student with the University of Manchester studying data mining and visualisation of particle physics datasets. I am currently based at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) in the UK working between the CMS group and e-Science Scientific Applications Group. The visualisation techniques I am investigating include parallel coordinates and the grand tour. The aim of the project is to create a program which is compatible with ROOT that will implement these techniques. The program is being written in C++ for Linux based systems but will be developed to run on other systems as well.



CERN, Geneva - Switzerland

I am currently a technical student at the Online group of LHCb at CERN. My main tasks are development and improvements of the control system and error tracking for the data acquisition system. My work will be part of my M.Sc. thesis in physics from Chalmers University (Sweden). In my work I mostly use C, C++ and the SCADA system PVSS. I am also familiar with other computer languages as Java, PHP, Javascript, MySQL, Matlab, LaTeX, bash scripts. I use actively and configure different Linux/UNIX systems and occasionally Windows.




Institut für Kernphysik, Münster – Germany

I am working as a PhD student at the "Institut für Kernphysik" in Münster for the ALICE experiment. In my diploma thesis I have developed the online control software for the Transition Radiation Detector of ALICE. Currently I am involved in the development of online particle identification methods for the Transition Radiation Detector to identify electrons with high transverse momenta in pp and heavy ion collisions within a few micro seconds.  Furthermore I am the system administrator of our computer network and involved in the maintenance of a 100 CPU cluster, which is part of the ALICE computing grid.
