Bill Gropp – Pursuing the Next Big Thing at NCSA
FROM HPCWIRE - About eight months ago Bill Gropp was elevated to acting director of the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA). He is, of course, already highly accomplished. Development (with colleagues) of the MICH implementation of MPI is one example. He was NCSA’s chief scientist, a role Gropp retains, when director Ed Seidel was tapped to serve as interim vice president for research for the University of Illinois System, and Gropp was appointed acting NCSA director.
