On 8 & 9 November 2022, an international funders workshop was held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. During this workshop, many research funding organizations from across the globe gathered to discuss the future of research software. I gave an invited talk at the workshop, discussing what research software look like, introducing different types of research software,… Continue reading Talk at the international funders workshop: The Future of Research Software
Question: What IT product that you use every day lasts more than 10 years? Nothing you say? Don’t be ridiculous, you say? Yes, in this fast moving world where new products and versions are released almost faster than light, and most people get a new phone every 2-3 years, that is very, very unusual. My… Continue reading Synology for the win!
On Monday September 28, Chris Broekema, a PhD candidate I supervised together with Henri Bal, successfully defended his PhD at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam ! The title of Chris’ thesis is Commodity compute- and data-transport system design in modern large-scale distributed radio telescopes. Below, the abstract of Chris’ thesis. In this thesis, we study… Continue reading Chris Broekema defended his PhD thesis
You can find my inaugural lecture here.
To maximise the vast potential of exascale computers, two major obstacles will have to be overcome: software complexity and data volume. This is one of the findings of a new semi-automated literature study on the state of exascale computing. The study we carried out with a team of research engineers at the Netherlands eScience Center… Continue reading New ACM Computing Surveys paper throws light on state of exascale computing
Wednesday May 8 at 16.00, I will give my inaugural lecture. The title is “The e-scientist. Universal scientist or specialist?”. The location is the Aula of the University of Amsterdam. Note that the lecture will be in Dutch. Everyone who is interested in eScience and efficient computing is very welcome! Dutch Summary: Wetenschap wordt steeds… Continue reading Inaugural lecture
Great news! The new and improved Westerbork telescope in the northeast of the Netherlands has seen first light! If you are into radio astronomy, or if you have visited the second world war nazi camp and monument at Westerbork, you may be familiar with this instrument, which was built in 1970. The telescope is situated… Continue reading First Light! … Again! Shiny new receivers for the Westerbork telescope.
