Sverre Jarp


Sverre Jarp is active in the CERN openlab, a joint collaboration with leading industrial partners in order to assess cutting-edge information technology for the Large Hadron Colliderís Computing Grid.  He has been working in computing at CERN for over 35 years and has held various managerial and technical positions promoting advanced but cost-effective computing solutions for the Laboratory.  In 2001-02 he spent a sabbatical year in HP Labs (Palo Alto, USA). His current fields of interest are, in particular, multi-threaded programming and performance tuning, but he works hard to keep involved in all the technical activities in openlab. S. Jarp holds a degree in Theoretical Physics from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim.


Andrzej Nowak


Andrzej Nowak is a staff researcher at CERN openlab - a collaboration of CERN and industrial partners such as HP, Intel, Oracle and Siemens. He holds a Master Engineer degree in Computer Science from the Gdansk University of Technology, specializing in distributed applications and internet systems. Andrzej's early research concerned operating systems security, mobile systems security, and wireless technologies. During his studies in 2005 and 2006, he worked at Intel, where he researched custom performance optimizations of the Linux kernel and took part in developing one of the first implementations of the IEEE 802.16 "WiMax Mobile" standard. In January 2007, soon after obtaining his diploma, he joined openlab as a Marie Curie Fellow sponsored by the European Commission. Andrzej's current research is focused on performance tuning, parallelism and modern many-core processor architectures. Another significant area of his work is the teaching of these topics at courses both within and outside of CERN.


Hans Pabst


Hans Pabst is a technical consulting engineer in Intelís Software and Services Group helping customers in the EMEA region with their multicore transformation by taking advantage of
Intelís software developer tools, compilers, debuggers and threading runtimes.

Hansí focus is on math, parallel algorithms and programming models targeting HPC and scientific applications. Hans also works in the embedded computing domain where his interests extend to energy efficiency, reliability and software security.

Ivica Puljak

University of Split  - Croatia

Ivica Puljak is Professor of physics at University of Split, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Enginnering and Naval Arhitecture (FESB). He completed his BsC studies in electrical engineering at FESB and MsC studies in particle physics at University of Zagreb. He has been working for his PhD thesis at Laboratory Leprince Ringuet (LLR) at Ecole Polytechnique, Palaiseau, and got his PhD in particle physics from University Paris VI in 2000. In 2011/2012 he was research associate at CERN. He is a member of CMS collaboration since 1994 and MAGIC collaboration since 2009. His research interests are construction of the electromagnetic calorimeter of the CMS detector, search for the Higgs boson and astroparticle physics.
