Frank Capello

Bio: Dr. Cappello is currently a Senior Computer Scientist at Argonne National Laboratory. Among his many achievements are the design and implementation of the Grid 5000 national scale testbed for parallel and distributed computing, which is still actively used 20 years after its initial deployment. He also established a broad research agenda in resilient high performance applications, encompassing fault tolerance, checkpointing, and error detection. Most recently, he has pioneered techniques for lossy compression of scientific data, represented by the SZ data compression software and many variants. Dr. Capello has co-authored more than 200 technical papers that have been cited more than 14,000 times.


The annual HPDC Achievement Award is presented to an individual who has made long-lasting, influential contributions to the foundations or practice of the field of high-performance parallel and distributed computing (HPDC).
