Henri Casanova received the BS degree from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Electronique, d'Electrotechnique, d'Informatique et d'Hydraulique de Toulouse, France in 1993, the MS degree from the Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France in 1994, and the PhD degree from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 1998. He is an assistant professor of computer and information sciences at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. His research interests are in the area of parallel and distributed computing, with a focus on modeling, simulation, and scheduling. He is a member of the IEEE.
Yves Robert received the PhD degree from the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble in 1986. He is currently a full professor in the Computer Science Laboratory LIP at ENS Lyon. He is the author of four books, 95 papers published in international journals, and 115 papers published in international conferences. His main research interests are scheduling techniques and parallel algorithms for clusters and grids. He is a fellow of the IEEE and the IEEE Computer Society, and serves as an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems.
H.J. Siegel received two BS degrees from the Massachussetts Institute of Technology, and the MA, MSE, and PhD degrees from Princeton University. He was appointed the George T. Abell Endowed Chair Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Colorado State University (CSU) in August 2001, where he is also a professor of computer science. In December 2002, he became the first director of the university-wide CSU Information Science and Technology Center (ISTeC). From 1976 to 2001, he was a professor at Purdue University. Professor Siegel has coauthored more than 300 published papers on parallel and distributed computing and communication. He is a fellow of the IEEE and a fellow of the ACM. He was a Coeditor-in-Chief of the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing, and was on the Editorial Boards of both the IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems and the IEEE Transactions on Computers. He was program chair/cochair of three major international conferences, general chair/cochair of six international conferences, and chair/cochair of five workshops. Professor Siegel is chair of the Steering Committee for the annual IEEE Heterogeneous Computing Workshop. He has been an international keynote speaker and tutorial lecturer, and has consulted for industry and government. For more information, please see www.engr. colostate.edu/~hj.
