Peter Schwabe and Anna Vilanova at ICT.OPEN2018

We are pleased to announce that Peter Schwabe and Anna Vilanova have confirmed to be chairmen at ICT.OPEN2018. They both have a strong connection to the ICT field and are very motivated to be able to contribute to ICT.OPEN2018.

Peter Schwabe

Peter Schwabe is an assistant professor at Radboud University Nijmegen.  He graduated from RWTH Aachen University in computer science in 2006 and received a Ph.D. from the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of Eindhoven University of Technology in 2011. He then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Information Science and the Research Center for Information Technology Innovation of Academia Sinica, Taiwan and at National Taiwan University.   His research area is the optimization of cryptographic and cryptanalytic algorithms in software. The target architectures of this software range from high-end desktop and server CPUs through parallel

architectures such as the Cell Broadband Engine and graphics processing units to embedded processors such as ARM and AVR. He has published articles at several international conferences on fast software for a variety of cryptographic primitives including AES, hash functions, elliptic-curve cryptography, and cryptographic pairings. He has also published articles on fast cryptanalysis, in particular attacks on the discrete-logarithm problem. He recently works primarily on the optimization of post-quantum cryptography.

Peter Schwabe won in 2017 The Dutch Prize for ICT-Research and received his award at ICT.OPEN2017.


Anna Vilanova

Dr. Anna Vilanova is associate professor, since August 2013, at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science, Department of Intelligent Systems, Computer Graphics & Visualization Group at the University of Delft, the Netherlands. Prior to this position, she was Assistant Professor at the Biomedical Image Analysis group of the Biomedical Engineering Department at the Eindhoven University of Technology. She is leading a research group in the subject of multivalued image analysis and visualization, focusing on Visual Analytics for Biomedical applications, Diffusion Weighted Imaging and 4D Flow. Her research interests include visual analytics, medical visualization, volume visualization, multivalued visualization, and medical image analysis. In 2005, she was awarded a NWO-Veni personal grant with title “Visualization of global tensor information for diffusion tensor imaging”. In 2014 she got a NWO-Aspasia. She is member of the international program committee of several conferences (e.g., IEEE Visualization and EG- IEEE VGTC-EuroVis). She has been chair and editor of relevant conferences and journals in her field of research (e.g., EuroVis 2008, Computer & Graphics). She is member of the steering committee of IEEE VGTC EuroVis since 2014. She is member of the ICT research Platform Netherlands (IPN)since 2016.
