Hans Vandierendonck is a Professor in High-Performance and Data-Intensive Computing in the school of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, at Queen’s University Belfast. He is a member of the Centre on Data Science and Scalable Computing (DSSC) in the Institute for Electronics, Communications and Information Technology. His research interests are in compilers, runtime systems and architectures for parallel systems with special attention to the programmability of such systems. Hans also has a vested interested in computer architecture, and particularly in cache architecture, prediction and performance evaluation. He has co-authored over a 100 papers and has supervised PhD dissertations of 4 students, one of whom, Dr Jiawen Sun, is finalist in the EPSRC Connected Nation Pioneers competition. Hans received the IBM Belgium Prize for Computer Science in 2000 for his graduation thesis on “Bank prediction in multi-bank caches” and in 2004 for his PhD dissertation on “Avoiding mapping conflicts in microprocessors”. His graduation thesis also received the Jozef Plateau prize from the Alumni Engineers Ghent in 2000. Hans was finalist in the 2004 Championship Branch Prediction competition.

Hans is a Senior Member of IEEE, a Senior Member of ACM, a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a member of the EPSRC College of Peer Reviewers. He served as Programme Track Chair for Track 9 at Euro-Par 2017, Financy Chair for IEEE CLUSTER 2018, Student Travel Grant Co-Chair for HPCA 2016, publicity chair for the HiPEAC conference 2009 and for ISCA 2010. He has served on programme committees of major conferences in computer architecture and high-performance computing, including ISCA, SC, ICS, CCGrid, IPDPS, ICPP, DATE and Euro-Par. He regularly reviews for journals and transactions, including ACM TACO, IEEE TC, IEEE TPDS, IEEE TSE, IEEE Micro, ACM TOPLAS, ACM ToDAES, Wiley CCPE, Elsevier JPDC, Elsevier Parallel Computing, Elsevier JSA, and Elsevier Sustainable Computing.

Prior to joining Queen’s, Hans was Fellow with the Research Foundation Flanders and placed at Ghent University. He was visiting researcher at the Foundation for Reseach and Technology – Hellas (FORTH) in the Computer Architecture and VLSI Systems Laboratory in 2010-2011. He was visiting researcher in the Amdahl’s Law is Forever (ALF) team at INRIA Rennes in 2005 and he was visiting researcher at the Departament d’Arquitectura de Computadors at the Universitat Polytècnica de Catalunya in 2001.
