Uitgerekend nu?

Prof.dr. Peter Hilbers was appointed as a part-time professor of Large-Scale Computing at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) on March 1, 1993, and as a full professor on March 15, 1996. On September 1, 2001, he became a full professor of BioModeling and BioInformatics at the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
He will deliver his farewell speech entitled 'Uitgerekend nu?' on October 6, 2023.

About the lecture
30 years ago, in his inaugural lecture ‘Parallel Computing, a challenge for science and industry’ (in Dutch: ‘Parallel Rekenen, een uitdaging voor wetenschap en industrie’), he discussed the importance of cooperations and interactions for computational systems. Now, he will address how cooperations and interactions have progressed the modeling of biomedical systems. He will also discuss which factors contributed most to the successful development of the Department of Biomedical Engineering.

The lecture will be delivered in Dutch.
