Workshop on Numerical Approximation of PDEs for the 60th birthday of Frédéric Hecht , Malaga, April 2015, see https://edanya.uma.es/hecht60.
SIAM Siag on Supercomputing Best Paper Prize 2016 for the most outstanding paper published in 2012-2015 in a journal in the field of high performance computing. Co-authors are J. Demmel, L. Grigori, M. Hoemmen, and J. Langou, for the paper Communication-Optimal Parallel and Sequential QR and LU Factorizations, published in SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing 2012.
Citation of the jury: This is a cornerstone paper in Numerical Linear Algebra and Parallel Processing that lays down both theoretical and practical algorithmic frameworks for communication-avoiding algorithms. The paper provides powerful insights and renews attention on communication reduction both of which will have long-lasting and practical impact in parallel and distributed computing.
