Christian Plessl is professor for High-Performance IT Systems at Paderborn University, Germany. He has lead and been involved in numerous research projects studying reconfigurable architectures, design flows, runtime systems and the application of FPGAs in HPC. He is also the director of the Paderborn Center for Parallel Computing (PC²), which is Paderborn University’s HPC center providing computing resources and services for computational sciences at Paderborn University and Germany-wide. Leveraging the longstanding expertise in FPGA acceleration in Paderborn, PC² has recently deployed FPGAs for the first time in an HPC production system. The Noctua installation is currently one of the largest and most modern FPGA installations in academic HPC centers.
