Birthe Van den Berg, BE

Dept. Computer Science - KULeuven

Lighting up fluorescence microscopy with DSLs

Birthe van den Berg obtained her Master's degree in Computer Engineering from KU Leuven in 2019. As a follow-up on her Master's thesis entitled "Type Inference for Disjoint Intersection Types", she joined the programming languages group of Tom Schrijvers as a PhD researcher. Central to her research is the design of a domain-specific programming language for facilitating fluorescence microscopy experiments, in collaboration with the KU Leuven Lab for Nanobiology.

Theodoros Chatzigiannakis, GR

Disney Streaming Services

Safety and Performance

Theodoros was born in Greece. He was taught programming in primary school and continued learning and experimenting on his own ever since. He became an active contributor to developer resources such as Stack Overflow, writing technical articles on his blog, and occasionally helping in open source software. He got an integrated master's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Patras. He then moved to the Netherlands and worked at TOPIC Embedded Systems as a consultant for Canon Production Printing. Currently, he is working at Disney Streaming Services on next-generation native client infrastructure for media streaming platforms.

Data Minded

Building reproducible, modern data processing pipelines with cloud native components

Processing data has been a wildly dynamic topic in recent years. The explosion of available data from digital devices lead to systems capable of processing enormous data sets and streams through distributed, nearly infinitely scalable processes. Yet, research projects are faced with different market pressures which may prohibit keeping up to speed with the latest technological developments.

In this session, we will discuss how to build, deploy and maintain streaming or batch data pipelines on the Google Cloud Platform following data engineering and DevOps practices.

This talk is for anyone who is interested in applying software engineering techniques to turn their ad-hoc research projects into industry grade data processing setups.

Dept. Computer Sciences - KULeuven

On a date with DSLs: what domain-specific languages can do for you

Birthe van den Berg obtained her Master's degree in Computer Engineering from KU Leuven in 2019. As a follow-up on her Master's thesis entitled "Type Inference for Disjoint Intersection Types", she joined the programming languages group of Tom Schrijvers as a PhD researcher. Central to her research is the design of a domain-specific programming language for facilitating fluorescence microscopy experiments, in collaboration with the KU Leuven Lab for Nanobiology.

Tom Schrijvers graduated as master of engineering in computer science at KU Leuven in 2001. He obtained his PhD at the KU Leuven Department of Computer Science in 2005 and was postdoctoral researcher of the FWO from 2006 until 2010 when he became lecturer at UGent. In 2014 he returned to KU Leuven as senior research professor. His team studies programming languages and the functional programming paradigm in particular.
