Yves Robert receives the IEEE TCSC Award for his work on high-performance computing

Philippe Fontaine - 6/06/2014

Supercomputers allow the smooth running of programmes intended to solve major scientific challenges, whether they involve the discovery of new proteins or climate modelling. They are composed of thousands of processors working in parallel and are governed by algorithms which constantly change to adapt to their increasingly complex architectures. The algorithm researcher Yves Robert is one of the global specialists in this discipline. He is also the first European to receive the IEEE TCSC Award, which rewards the work of a researcher in the field of high-performance computing.
