Dr. Anne C. Elster's Collaborations with CERN

Dr. Elster established formal collaborations with the CERN Grid projects after a visit in April 2003.
Elster's Master student, Glenn Hisdal, was her first to finish his thesis at CERN in the summer of 2004 after spending the summer of 2003 as well as spring 2004 there.

This summer (2009) two students, both who have taken her TDT 4200 Parellel Computing class, will join the CERN Openlab project:

Rune Erlend Jensen -- to work with CERN CTO Sverre Jarp on compilers

Martin Tverdal -- to work with Joao Correia Fernandes

They were recently featured in the NTNU paper "Universitetsavisa"'s article "Med kurs for webbens vugge" on May 28, 2009.
