About me

Christian Terboven studied computer science at RWTH Aachen University and specialized on High Performance Computing. Since completing his diploma in 2006 he is working as a research associate in the HPC department of the Center for Computing and Communication at RWTH Aachen University. In 10/2009 he became the deputy head of the HPC department.

His research interests center around Parallel Programming – with a focus on Shared-Memory architectures, Paradigms, Programming Languages, and related Software Engineering aspects. Christian Terboven has been involved in the Analysis, Tuning and Parallelization of several large-scale simulation codes for various architectures, and has published over 20 papers on this subject.

Since 2006 he is a member of the OpenMP Language Committee. In this capacity, he is involved in the Affinity subcommittee, working on explicit support for NUMA architectures, and the Interoperability and Composability subcommittee, taking care of integration with other parallel programming models and developments in the base languages. He is also the second representative in the OpenMP Architecture Review Board for RWTH Aachen University.

He lead the “Windows-HPC” project that started in 2004 and introduced HPC on Windows as a service for RWTH Aachen University and the state of North-Rhine Westphalia, using the Microsoft Windows HPC Server product. In 04/2010, 04/2011, 04/2012, 04/2013 and 04/2014 he has been recognized as a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for Technical Computing (formerly Windows HPC Server) for his contribution to the technical Windows HPC Server community. More information on this program may be found here: MVP Exec Summary.

    Hi Christian,

    Thanks for sharing PPCES “Video Lectures on OpenMP, MPI and Xeon Phi release” tutorials.

    I try to download slides and codes from the provided link: https://sharepoint.campus.rwth-aachen.de/units/rz/HPC/public/Shared%20Documents/Forms/PPCES%202014.aspx. However, it requires usernames and passwords of the university. Can you make it public for downloading ?

    Regards

    Cat Le
