Raymond Namyst is the scientific leader of the "Runtime" Inria Research Group devoted to the design of high performance runtime systems for parallel architectures. His main research interests are parallel computing, scheduling on heterogeneous multiprocessor architectures (multicore, NUMA, accelerators), and communications over high-speed networks. He has supervised 20+ Ph.D students, and has written more than 80 papers on the design of efficient runtime systems. He has contributed to the development of many significant runtime systems (MPI, OpenMP) and most notably the StarPU software. He has been member of numerous conference program committees, including SC, PACT, EuroPar, Cluster, EuroMPI, CCGrid and HiPC. He was general co-chair of the Euro-Par 2011 international conference, and has served as a topic chair for SC'11 and Euro-Par'14.
