We’ve just learned that our own Dr. Frank Baetke, member of HP’s Scalable Computing and Infrastructure team, has been appointed an ISC Fellow by the International Supercomputing Conference Selection Committee. This is a great honor extended to just a handful of individuals and underscores Frank’s tireless efforts working with the ISC team to deliver a world-class high-performance computing event every year.
The Selection Committee selected five pioneers who have helped ISC to establish its position as one of the leading forums for high-performance computing, scale-out and cloud computing.
So far only five individuals worldwide have been named ISC Fellows:
Dr. Frank Baetke, Hewlett-Packard ISS/SCI, Germany
Prof. Satoshi Matsuoka, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan
Prof. Wolfgang E. Nagel, Technical University Dresden, Germany
Dr. Horst D. Simon, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA
Prof. Thomas Sterling, Louisiana State University, USA
