Wolfgang Bangerth is a computational scientist and a professor of mathematics at Colorado State University. He is the founder and one of the current principal maintainers of the deal.II software library that provides everything you need to build finite element applications, including meshes, linear algebra functionality, a zoo of finite elements, and support from laptops to supercomputers with 100,000s of cores. With Timo Heister, he also started and is one of the current maintainers of the ASPECT code used to simulate convection in the Earth interior.
Timo Heister is an assistant professor in mathematical sciences at Clemson University in South Carolina. His research interests are in computational mathematics centered around the finite element method with focus on adaptive mesh refinement, parallel solvers, and applications to fluid dynamics and geophysics. He is one of the principal maintainers of the deal.II finite element library and involved in several other open source scientific software projects.
Luc Renambot received a PhD at the University of Rennes in France, conducting research on parallel rendering algorithms for illumination simulation. He then held a Post-doctoral position at the Free University of Amsterdam, where he worked on bringing education and scientific visualization to virtual-reality environments. Since 2003, he has been at UIC/EVL, first as a Post-doc and now as a Research Associate Professor in Computer Science, where his research topics include high-resolution displays, computer graphics, parallel computing, and high-speed networking.
Jason Leigh is the director of LAVA: the Laboratory for Advanced Visualization & applications, and Professor of Information & Computer Sciences at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa. He is co-inventor of the CAVE2 Hybrid Reality Environment, and SAGE: Scalable Adaptive Graphics Environment software, which has been licensed to Mechdyne Corporation & Vadiza Corporation, respectively.
Dylan Kobayashi - A graduate student attending University of Hawaii at Manoa. One year into the PhD program of computer science. Have been working on SAGE2 for about two years now. Interested in groups environments, networks, and alternative ways to communicate information like virtual and augmented reality.
