Senior Research Scientist, NCSA
Research Interests:High-performance computing and special-purpose computing architectures; development and deployment of next-generation HPC systems based on computational accelerators; and design and implementation of scientific applications on such systems.
Volodymyr Kindratenko is a Senior Research Scientist at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) and a Visiting Lecturer in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). Prior to joining NCSA, he received the D.Sc. degree from the University of Antwerp (UIA), Belgium, in 1997, and the Specialist degree from the Vynnychenko State Pedagogical University (KDPU), Kirovograd, Ukraine, in 1993.
Dr. Kindratenko’s main interests are in architecture, algorithms, programming models, and performance modeling for accelerator-based systems for science and engineering applications. Dr. Kindratenko serves on the Board of Directors for OpenFPGA. He is the founding Novel Architectures Department Editor for IEEE/AIF Computing in Science and Engineering magazine and Associate Editor for the International Journal of Reconfigurable Computing. He guest-edited numerous special issues in leading journals, such as IEEE Computer, TPDS, TRETS, ParCo, CiSE, dedicated to the accelerator-based computing technologies and applications and served as the Program Chair of The Symposium on Application Accelerators in High Performance Computing and The International Workshop on High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing Technology and Applications. He currently serves on the Technical Program committees for many leading conferences and workshops, such as IPDPS, PDP, ICFPT, FPT, CF, ReConFig, CCGrid, FGC, and GPGPU, and reviews papers for leading journals, e.g., TPDS, TC, TRETS, JPDC, ParCo. He holds 5 patents, is a recipient of the 2007 SRC Award for Excellence in Reconfigurable Computing, and a Senior Member of IEEE and ACM.
