Andreas Wicenec is Professor at the University of Western Australia since 2010, leading the Data Intensive Astronomy Program of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research designing and implementing data flows and high performance scientific computing for large scale astronomical facilities and surveys. During his career he had the privilege to be involved in the software development, data management and reduction and operation of several large scale astronomical facilities, including the ESA cornerstone HIPPARCOS satellite, the Very Large Telescope (VLT) and the Atacama Large Millimetre and Submillimetre Array (ALMA) in Chile, the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA), the Fivehundred metre Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST) and the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). Prof. Wicenec is also involved in the International Virtual Observatory Alliance (IVOA). His scientific interests in astronomy include precision global astrometry, optical background radiation, stellar photometry, dynamics and evolution of planetary nebulae and observational survey astronomy. In computer science he is doing research in workflow construction and execution as well as scheduling and the related computational concepts.
