Prof. Dr. Ben Juurlink



Prof. Dr. Ben Juurlink received the M.Sc. degree from Utrecht University, Utrecht, The Netherlands, and the Ph.D. degree from Leiden University, Leiden, The Netherlands, in 1992 and 1997, respectively.

In 1997-1998 he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Heinz Nixdorf Institute in Paderborn, Germany, and from 1998 to 2009 he was a faculty member (first assistant professor, then associate professor) of the Computer Engineering Laboratory of Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands. Currently, he is professor for Embedded Systems Architectures in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of Berlin University of Technology, Berlin, Germany. He is also co-founder of Spin Digital GmbH.

Dr. Juurlink’s research interests include multi- and many-core processors, reconfigurable computing, and the art of mapping applications effectively and efficiently to computer architectures. He has (co-)authored more than 130 articles in international conferences and journals, and received best paper awards at the IASTED International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing and Systems (PDCS) in 2002, and at the third IEEE International Conference on Consumer Electronics – Berlin (ICCE-Berlin). He has also received a Technology Transfer Award from the HiPEAC Network of Excellence for transferring some of the video coding technology that has been developed in his group to a Greece-based SME.

Dr. Juurlink is a senior member of the ACM and a senior member of the IEEE. He has been the Principal Investigator of several national research projects, Work Package leader in several European projects, and Coordinator of the EU projects LPGPU, Film265, and LPGPU2. He has served on many program committees, is an editor of the Elsevier journal on Microprocessors and Microsystems: Embedded Hardware Design, and was the general co-chair of the HiPEAC conference in 2013.
