I/O-efficient Algorithms for flood risk analysis using massive terrain data

On April 21, 2017 the DSC/e will organize a symposium in honor of Lars Arge, who will receive an honorary doctorate from the TU/e. The symposium is free, however registration is necessary.

Lars Arge (Aarhus University, Denmark) is a pioneer in the area of memory-hierarchy efficient algorithms, especially I/O-efficient algorithms for problems involving massive datasets. He has worked on massive dataset problems in many fundamental areas, with an emphasis on I/O-efficient algorithms and data structures for problems with practical applications in geographical information systems and spatial databases. Arge is the founder and director of the Center for Massive Data Algorithmics (MADALGO), a world-leading Danish research center, and he is chairman of the board of SCALGO, a company that brings cutting-edge massive terrain data-processing technology to market. Lars Arge currently also serves as the Secretary General of the Danish Royal Academy of Sciences and Letters.

The work of Arge fits well with research going on within the DSC/e, in particular with the work of the research groups Algorithms (led by prof. Mark de Berg) and Applied Geometric Algorithms (led by prof. Bettina Speckmann).  The symposium will feature lectures by three prominent researchers from the DSC/e who will showcase some of the research from the DSC/e and, of course, a lecture by Lars Arge about his work.
