Interactive Supercomputing has announced that it has appointed Dr. Bill Camp, CTO of Intel’s High Performance Computing, to its board of directors. Dr. Camp currently leads the work surrounding supercomputing activities at Intel. Previously, he was director of computation, computers, information and mathematics at Sandia National Laboratories. He also lead Cray Research’s Applications Technologies business and served on the design team for the T3E.
I am excited to join Bill Blake’s team on the board of directors of Interactive Supercomputing,” said Camp. “In the past, parallel computing has largely been the reserve of expert researchers at national laboratories, universities and a few software houses. Today with the advent of multi-core and future many-core processors, parallel computing becomes the concern of all who develop and use software — even on workstations and personal computers. ISC’s Star-P is a breakthrough in parallel computing and will be a critical force in moving us beyond a priesthood of parallel processing experts to the broad community of developers and users through easy-to-use and efficient parallel programming and development tools.
Dr. Camp holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Manhattan College and a PhD in mathematical and computational physics from Cornell University.
