(Fellow, IEEE) Dr. Franck Cappello is the director of the Joint-Laboratory on Extreme Scale Computing gathering seven of the leading high-performance computing institutions in the world: Argonne National Laboratory, National Center for Scientific Applications, Inria, Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Julich Supercomputing Center, Riken AICS and University of Tennessee at Knoxville ICL laboratory. He is a senior computer scientist at Argonne National Laboratory and an adjunct associate professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is an expert in resilience and fault tolerance for scientific computing and data analytics. More recently he started investigating lossy compression for scientific data sets to respond to the pressing needs of scientist performing large-scale simulations and experiments. His contribution to this domain is one of the best lossy compressors for scientific data set respecting user-set error bounds. He is a member of the editorial boards of IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Computing and Elsevier Parallel Computing and of the IEEE CCGRID steering committees. He is recipient of the 2018 IEEE TCPP Outstanding Service award, the highest distinction in the Technical Committee on Parallel Processing. He is also recipient of a 2019 R&D100 award.
