Norbert Eicker Appointed Professor at Bergische Universität Wuppertal
In 2004, Norbert Eicker started work at JSC in the research fields of cluster computing and innovative architectures. His activities since then have included the design and implementation of various experimental and production cluster systems including the JUROPA supercomputer. He was also involved in the development of QPACE, a joint project by physicists at the Universities of Wuppertal and Regensburg. Beyond that he is the architect of the DEEP system implementing a novel heterogeneous cluster-booster architecture. As of 21 August 2013, Norbert Eicker has been appointed W2 professor in parallel hard- and software systems at Bergische Universität Wuppertal, retaining his position as a scientist at JSC ("Jülich Model"). During the last few years, cooperation between the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at Bergische Universität Wuppertal and JSC has been continuously expanded by activities in teaching and research projects. In his new position, Prof. Eicker will strengthen this link by further joint research projects and the development of innovative supercomputer architectures.
JSC wishes Norbert all the best in his new position!
