Thomas Sterling, professor, joined the LSU faculty from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory where he was a principal scientist and the California Institute of Technology where he was a faculty associate. He received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Sterling's research interests focus on system architecture for high performance computing for both ground based and autonomous mobile applications. He is developing the MIND processor in memory architecture based on ParalleX, an advanced message-driven split-transaction computing model for scalable low-power fault-tolerant operation. In addition, he is developing an ultra lightweight supervisor runtime kernel in support of MIND and other fine grain architectures (like CELL) and the Agincourt parallel programming language for high efficiency through intrinsics in support of latency hiding and low overhead synchronization for both conventional and innovative parallel computer architectures.

Mark M. Wilde is an Assistant Professor at LSU, holding a joint appointment in the Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Center for Computation and Technology. He is the recipient of a National Science Foundation Career award and a Senior Member of the IEEE. He received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California, in 2008. He conducted postgraduate research as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Computer Science, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada from 2009 until 2013. He has published many articles and preprints in the area of quantum information processing, and he is the author of the text "Quantum Information Theory," published by Cambridge University Press. His research interests are in quantum information theory, quantum error correction, quantum computational complexity theory, and quantum optics with applications to quantum communication.

Seungwon Yang is an assistant professor in the School of Library and Information Sciences. He received his PhD from Virginia Tech University in December 2013. Upon graduation, Dr. Yang was a post-doctoral researcher at George Mason University. His research interests are positioned in the fields of Crisis Informatics and Learning Analytics. Specifically, I'm interested in identifying useful knowledge by applying data mining and modeling techniques to a large datasets (e.g., disaster data from tweets/web, online teaching/learning/community data) and building information systems that integrate processing of large datasets and visualizations.

Dr. Hartmut Kaiser is a senior scientist at the Center for Computation and Technology (CCT) and an adjunct faculty in the Division of Computer Science and Engineering at Louisiana State University. He received his doctorate from the Technical University of Chemnitz (Germany) in 1988. He is probably best known through his involvement in open source software projects, mainly as the author of several C++ libraries he has contributed to Boost, which are in use by thousands of developers worldwide. He is a voting member of ISO C++ Standards Committee. His current research is focused on leading the STE||AR group at CCT working on the practical design and implementation of the ParalleX execution model in HPX and related programming methods. In addition, he architected and developed the core library modules of SAGA for C++, a Simple API for Grid Applications.
