Dr. Gagliardi has been consulting on computing and computing policy matters with the Commission of the European Union, several government and international bodies.

Prior to this and till 2013 he was Europe, Middle East and Africa Director for External Research at Microsoft Research. He joined Microsoft in 2005 after a long career at CERN, the world leading laboratory for particle physics in Geneva. There he held several technical and senior managerial positions since 1975.

Dr. Gagliardi obtained a doctor degree in Computer Science from the University of Pisa in Italy in 1974.


Claudia Rosas got the B.S. degree in computer engineering in 2008 from Universidad Valle del Momboy (Venezuela). She got the M.Sc. in High-Performance Computing in 2009 and the Ph.D. in High-Performance Computing in 2012, both from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain). Her research interests include high performance parallel applications, automatic performance analysis and dynamic tuning.

In 2012, she joined as a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. Her daily tasks are related to the POP Center of Excellence and the Intel-BSC Exascale Lab, being her main focus the performance analysis of parallel applications for European customers, and the automatic prediction and extrapolation of the expected behaviour of the applications at Exascale Computing.


Paul Carpenter graduated in BA Mathematics (1997) and Diploma in Computer Science (1998) from the University of Cambridge. He received his PhD in computer architecture from the Technical University of Catalonia in 2011. He is currently Senior Researcher at BSC, where he is Principal Investigator of the EUROSERVER and ExaNoDe projects.  He is co-chair of the ETP4HPC’s Working Group onprogramming models, WP3 leader for ExaNoDe, WP2 leader for EuroLab-4-HPC, and co-director of five PhD students.

 Prior to starting his PhD, he was Senior Software Engineer at ARM in Cambridge, UK, where he was technical lead for audio/video codec development and part of the small team that designed the ARM Advanced SIMD (NEON) vector ISA.  He has three worldwide patents.  His research interests are server system architecture, energy proportional interconnects, and virtual machine resource sharing.
