We are happy to announce our keynote speakers

Prof. Hussein Abbass

University of New South Wales Canberra, Australia

Prof. Hussein Abbass is the Founding Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Artificial Intelligence (IEEE-TAI).  He is fascinated with trusted autonomy: a field that looks at designing safe and trustworthy interaction spaces between humans and smart (Artificial-Intelligence-based) machines. His particular interest is focusing on human-swarm interaction. He focuses on designing artificial and computational intelligence algorithms for the autonomoy of swarm (distrubuted AI) systems made of UAVs, UGVs, and software swarm, and the analytics across the interaction space between the human and the swarm.

Title of planned talk:

On the Role of Modelling and Simulation for Artificial Intelligence


Prof. Manish Gupta

International Institute of Information Technologie (  IIIT -) Bangalore, India

Prof. Manish Gupta is the Director of Google Research India. He holds an additional appointment as Infosys Foundation Chair Professor at IIIT Bangalore. Previously, Manish has led VideoKen, a video technology startup, and the research centers for Xerox and IBM in India. As a Senior Manager at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York, Manish led the team developing system software for the Blue Gene/L supercomputer. IBM was awarded a National Medal of Technology and Innovation for Blue Gene by US President Barack Obama in 2009. Manish holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. He has co-authored about 75 papers, with more than 7,000 citations in Google Scholar, and has been granted 19 US patents. While at IBM, Manish received two Outstanding Technical Achievement Awards, an Outstanding Innovation Award and the Lou Gerstner Team Award for Client Excellence. Manish is a Fellow of ACM and the Indian National Academy of Engineering, and a recipient of a Distinguished Alumnus Award from IIT Delhi.

Title of planned talk:

Modelling using Deep Learning


Prof. Knut-Andreas Lie

NTNU - Ålesund, Norway
Department of Mathematical Sciences
Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering


Knut-Andreas Lie is a chief scientist at SINTEF, the largest independent research organization in Scandinavia, where he leads the Computational Geosciences group at the Mathematics and Cybernetics department in Oslo. He also holds a part-time Professor II position at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). He was elected as a life-time member of the Norwegian Academy of Technological Sciences in 2014 and SIAM Fellow in 2020.

Title of planned talk:

Building an open-source community for subsurface flow simulation

The MATLAB Reservoir Simulation Toolbox (MRST) is a unique research tool for rapid prototyping and demonstration of new computational methods for flow in porous media. The software has a large user base all over the world in both academia and industry. 
My group is also one of the key contributors to OPM Flow, the world's first open-source reservoir simulator aimed at full industry use. In the talk, I will briefly describe the two, compare and contrast their development and ownership models, and outline some of the factors that have contributed to their current success.
