Speakers Announced So Far

Conrad Wolfram Wolfram Research Strategic Director and European Cofounder/CEO of the Wolfram Group of Companies Conrad Wolfram, physicist, mathematician and technologist, is the strategic director and European cofounder/CEO of the Wolfram group of companies. Conrad has been responsible for many technical directions, including the Computable Document Format (CDF), webMathematica technology and unification of the Wolfram technology stack. He regularly speaks on the vision of combining human and computer capabilities to improve society's ability to compute answers. Conrad is the founder of computerbasedmath.org, an organization to lead a fundamental shift of math education to a computational thinking approach that equips students for real, computer-based analytical skills of the future. See Conrad’s personal blog: http://www.conradwolfram.com.
Jon McLoone Wolfram Research Director of Technical Communication and Strategy As Director of Technical Communication and Strategy at Wolfram Research, Jon McLoone is central to driving the company's technical business strategy and leading the consulting solutions team. With over 25 years of experience working with Wolfram technologies, Jon has helped in directing software development, system design, technical marketing, corporate policy, business strategies and much more.
Tom Wickham-Jones Wolfram Research Director of Kernel Technology Tom Wickham-Jones has worked for Wolfram Research on the implementation of Mathematica since 1990. He is currently the Director of Kernel Technology. He has worked on many details of the Mathematica programming language, as well as other areas such as graphics. In addition, he is the architect of webMathematica and Wolfram Workbench. In 1992, he published the book Mathematica Graphics: Techniques and Applications. His most recent work has focused on the Mathematica compiler and parallel computation.
Anthony Zupnik Wolfram Research Kernel Developer Anthony Zupnik is a kernel developer at Wolfram Research Europe, which is based in Oxford, UK. Anthony joined the Wolfram team in 2013 and has worked on a variety of development projects both small and large; notably, he has worked on the Wolfram Cloud, report generation and the Computer-Based Maths project. In addition to developing, Anthony also delivers training courses and bespoke presentations in academic, educational and corporate settings. He is mad about APIs, quantum computation and programming, and has experience developing with languages such as VB.NET, C# and SQL.
Roman Maeder Wolfram Research Director of Parallel Computing Technology Roman E. Maeder holds a PhD in mathematics from ETH Zurich. He is one of the original developers of Mathematica, and was an assistant professor of computer science at ETH Zurich. He provides consulting in computer-aided mathematics, and continues to develop the parallel computing and other subsystems of Mathematica. He also lectures on computer-based mathematics at the School of Economics, University of Zurich.
Sjoerd Smit Wolfram Research Technical Consultant Dr. Sjoerd Smit is a technical consultant at Wolfram Research Europe Ltd. (Oxford, UK), where he has been working since 2016. He currently works on consultancy projects involving data science and statistics, and also works as a developer on Computer-Based Maths. Sjoerd holds a PhD in applied physics. He has a broad interest in science and mathematics, as well as a background in computational science.
Oliver Rübenkönig Wolfram Research Consultant Oliver Rübenkönig obtained his PhD from the Faculty of Applied Sciences at the University of Freiburg in 2008. At the chair of microsystem simulation, he developed a finite element method–based Mathematica add-on for, among other things, inkjet simulations. Since 2008, he has been a consultant for Wolfram Research, and works on implementing the finite element method in NDSolve and related functions. Talk to Oliver about engineering, numerics and NDSolve.
Giulio Alessandrini Wolfram Research Consultant Giulio Alessandrini graduated with a master's degree in physics at the University of Rome "La Sapienza." His studies comprised mainly statistical mechanics and its applications in different fields, such as neural networks, disordered systems and biological systems. At Wolfram Research, he has been working for the image processing team, where he deals with color processing, high-level utilities and, lately, with functions bridging neural networks and image analysis.
Jan Poeschko Wolfram Research Consultant Lead developer of the Wolfram Cloud notebook interface. Remote-working digital nomad. Come talk to me about web technologies, the Wolfram Language and JavaScript, Git and open-source software.
