Confirmed Invited Speakers

Hester Bijl, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands

Title: Simulation of unsteady flows and fluid-structure interactions

Hester Bijl is a professor of Computational Fluid Dynamics and head of the Department of Aerodynamics, Wind Energy and Flight Performance and Propulsion as well as of the Delft Energy Initiative. Other positions include the embership in the Advisory Board of the Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN). She was awawrded the Vidi grantof the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) in 2005. Her research focus is on introducing new methods in aerospace engineering simulations allowing to bring experiments and simulations closer together and to malke them supplement each other.

George Biros, University of Texas at Austin, USA

Title: Parallel algorithms for kernel sums in computational science and statistical inference

Prof. George Biros is the leader of the ICES Parallel Algorithms for Data Analysis and Simulation Group, and holder of the W. A. Moncrief, Jr. Simulation-Based Engineering Science Chair II. His research group focuses on computational mathematics and the invention of new parallel algorithms for physics-based simulations and large-scale data analysis. George Biros is a two-time winner of the Association for Computing Machinery's Gordon Bell Prize.

Bernd Markert, RWTH Aachen, Germany

Title: tba

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Bernd Markert is the Director of the Institute for General Mechanics at RWTH Aachen. His research topics are limit states of components and structures as a result of inelastic effects such as plasticity, material damage, and crack formation, mechanics of biological structures, with a focus on the human musculoskeletal system, and thin-walled structures with emphases on modeling, shock wave loading of plates and shells, and smart structures.

Michael Ulbrich, Technische Universität München, Germany

Title: Efficient Solution of Optimization Problems with PDEs and Pointwise Constraints

Prof. Dr. Michael Ulbrich is full professor at TUM holding the Chair of Mathematical Optimization. His research topics are nonlinear optimization and optimal control. He is particularly interested in the development, analysis and use of efficient algorithms to solve very large-scale nonlinear optimization problems that occur in the optimization of complex systems. Many of his research projects are related to applications, for example, in the context of shape optimization and control of fluid flows, the identification of parameters using seismic data or the analysis of human motion to advance the development of cognitive robots.

Zohar Yosibash, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel

Title: Computational Bone-Mechanics on Orthopedist's Cell Phone

Zohar Yosibash is a professor of mechanical engineering at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beer-Sheva, Israel (since 1995) and the Head of the Computational Mechanics Laboratory. His research interests are in the fields of computational and experimental bio-mechanics, generalized fracture mechanics and high order non-linear finite element methods. Zohar Yosibash was awarded the title of "TUM Ambassador" of the Technische Universität München for selected Research Alumni in 2012.
