Over the five years of GRIP activity the staff has been involved in its projects.
Let me thank them all for their involvment. Giovanni Coray

Graduated in computer science from the ENS Lyon in 1994. He went on for a Ph.D. in the LEOPARD project which he finished in 1999. His fields of interest are parallel and distributed computing and combinatorial optimization.
Professor, Head of the LITH

Graduated in Electrical Engineering, Geneva, Mathematics and Physics, Zurich. Ph.D. in Logic for Quantum Mechanics. Assistant professor at Colorado State and Montreal universities. Since 1971, active in developing Computer Science curricula and institutions in Switzerland. Director of postgraduate studies on electronic documents and Parallelism. Scientific director of Suissetra.

Graduated from the Ecole Nationale des Sciences de l'Informatique (Tunis, Tunisia), and recieved the Ph.D. degree from University of Valenciennes (France). From 1992 to 1995, he was Assistant Professor at Université de Tunis II and from 1995 to 1998, he was Associate Professor at the same University. His major research interests include Metacomputing, Parallel Programming, Object-Oriented Technology, High Performance Computing (HPC), and Web-Supercomputing.
Secretary

College in Business in Neuchatel. Worked for the International Committee of the Red Cross in Pakistan. Webpublisher.


Graduated in computer science from the EPFL in 1996. He is a Ph.D. student at the LITH. His fields of interest are: parallel and distributed computing, complexity theory, quantum computing, parallel algorithms, compiler technology and cryptography.
Holds a doctoral degree from Université Nancy I since 1992. His interest in virtual architectures such as the Virtual Cellular Machine places him at the cornerstone of artificial intelligence (neural network) and parallel languages (compilation). After several years in the MANTRA group at EPFL, he co-founded the GRIP in 1995. Although presently active in industry he maintains a link with the GRIP (ParCeL-2 project).
Graduated in computer science from the EPFL in 1993. Then he obtained a Ph.D. at the LITH in 1998. His fields of interest are: parallel and distributed computing, automatic parallelization, complexity theory and combinatorial optimization. He is a member of the ACM and the EATCS
Received his degrees as a mathematician and mathematics teacher at the Faculté des Sciences, Université Libanaise, Beyrouth. After several years of teaching practice he graduated in Computer Science at EPFL in 1997. His fields of interest are simlulation, object oriented software development, Unix and Web servers.
Graduated from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommuni-cations de Bretagne. Interests: distributed computing, machine learning, software engeneering.

Received the DEA and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from the University of Rennes (France) in 1990 and 1995. His research interests include parallel and distributed programming, combinatorial optimization, software engineering, and object-oriented programming.
Head of the GRIP

Graduated in electrical engineering from the EPFL in 1982. Six years of industrial experience in data acquisition (petroleum industry) and CAD/CAM. From 1988 to 2000, scientific collaborator at EPFL in Software Engineering, Expert Systems, Optimization and parallel programming. Receive the Ph.D. degree from EPFL in 1993 (asynchronous parallel programming on distributed memory architectures). Co-founder and chairman of the GRIP.

Graduated in Computer Science from University of Technology, HoChiMinh City, Vietnam in 1998. He studies at LITH under a Swiss Federal scholarship. His major interests: parallel and distributed processing, parallel algorithms and computer network.
Received the engineering diploma in Computer Science from the EPFL in 1995, and the electrical engineering diploma in Computer Science at the Geneva Engineering School in 1989. He received the Logitech, ABB and EIG awards. He obtained a PhD degree at EPFL in 1998. His main fields of interest are the performance prediction and modeling of multiprocessor systems, and multiprocessor hardware development.
