Award for Lower Saxony Scientist

Bild: Dr. Claus-Peter Rückemann Dr. Claus-Peter Rückemann, Leibniz Universität Hannover, has been elected as an “IARIA Fellow” of the International Academy, Research and Industry Association (IARIA). He is the first scientist from Lower Saxony to receive this honour. The IARIA award marks his research achievements in high performance computing, information systems, and distributed systems, as well as his strong and active support of international scientific cooperation. According to the awards committee, only very few scientists worldwide are elected to this fellowship.

Dr. Rückemann has conducted research into information systems and high performance computing for the last twenty years. He teaches information science, security and computing in the European Legal Informatics Study Programme (EULISP) at the Institute of Legal Informatics at Leibniz Universität. Dr. Claus-Peter Rückemann is a scientific advisor on information systems, geophysics und geosciences in the North German Supercomputing Alliance (Norddeutscher Verbund für Hoch- und Höchstleistungsrechnen, HLRN). He works in High Performance Computing (HPC) at the Regional Computer Centre for Lower Saxony (RRZN). In HPC supercomputers – i.e. computer systems at the upper performance limit of current processing capacity- are employed to solve challenging scientific problems. “The award is a great honour, and of special value to me. The many years of international exchange between scientific, academic and industrial institutions account for the increasing importance of supercomputing and modern information systems,” says Dr. Rückemann. A wide variety of interdisciplinary projects for future cooperation in this area have already been started.

IARIA is a non-profit, non-government organization promoting interchange between members of different associations, standardisation bodies and forums from science and industry. It has set itself the task of building bridges in science, academia and industry. Scientists and academics who have distinguished themselves through outstanding, internationally-refereed research results and many years of international leadership can be elected as IARIA fellows.
