at the 2015 conference will be presented by a
number of leading experts from around the world on topical CFD
issues. Confirmed keynote speakers are:
Ingo Eick is a Senior Scientist at Hydro Aluminium,
is a Professor at Harbin Institute of Technology in China where he
heads the Centre of Energy and Environmental Engineer and is
director of the Multiphase Process Engineering Research Group.
John Lowengrub is Chancellor's Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Uni. of California, USA.
directs the Extreme Computing Research Center at the King Abdullah University of Science and
Technology (KAUST). He earned a BSE in Aerospace and Mechanical Sciences from Princeton in 1978
and PhD in Applied Mathematics from Harvard in 1984. Keyes works at the interface between parallel
computing and the numerical analysis of PDEs, with a focus on scalable implicit solvers.
Newton-Krylov-Schwarz (NKS), Additive Schwarz Preconditioned Inexact Newton (ASPIN), and
Algebraic Fast Multipole (AFM) methods are methods he helped name and is helping to popularize.
Before joining KAUST as a founding dean in 2009, he led scalable solver software projects in the
ASCI and SciDAC programs of the US DOE, headed university collaboration programs at NASA’s ICASE and
the LLNL’s ISCR, and taught at Columbia, Old Dominion, and Yale Universities. He holds a Gordon Bell
Prize and a Sidney Fernbach Award, is a Fellow of AMS and SIAM, and was the recipient of the 2011
SIAM Prize for Distinguished Service to the Profession.
Srinivasa Mohan is a Principal Technology Specialist at ANSYS India. A Chemical Engineer by profession, he has 17 years
of experience in modelling multiphase flows. His doctoral thesis at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore India
relates to the modelling particulate flows in bins and hoppers. During his work at ANSYS he has advised customers in all
aspects of multiphase flow modelling, including fluidized beds, bubble columns, flow assurance, distillation columns and many
other processes involving multiphase flows.
