Curriculum Vitae

Friedhelm Meyer auf der Heide is since 1989 Full Professor for Algorithms and Complexity at the Heinz Nixdorf Institute and at the Department of Computer Science of the Faculty of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Mathematics of the University of Paderborn. He received his PhD in Mathematics at the University of Bielefeld in 1981 and his “Habilitation” in Computer Science at the Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe University in Frankfurt. 1984-1985 he worked as a visiting scientist at IBM Research in San Jose, California, USA. In 1996 he became Associate Professor for Theoretical Computer Science in Dortmund, before he moved to Paderborn.

In 1986, he received the award for the best habilitation thesis of the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt, in 1992 the Leibniz Award of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, jointly with Burkhard Monien. In 2007 he became a member of the German Academy of Sciences “Leopoldina”, in 2013 of the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts.

Friedhelm Meyer auf der Heide was director of the DFG-Graduate College on ”Parallel Processor Networks in Production Technique” (1992-2001), of the Collaborative Research Centre (DFG-SFB) “Massively Parallel Computing” (1995-2006), and of the European Integrated Project “Dynamically Evolving, Large Scale Information Systems (DELIS)” (2004-2008). He served on several commissions of the DFG, e.g. as member of the “Fachkollegium Informatik” (2000-2008), the Heisenberg committee, and the DFG-DAAD program committee "Promotion an Hochschulen in Deutschland" (2003, 2008). He also was member of the scientific directorate of the Computer Science Research Center Schloss Dagstuhl (2005-2008) and the Fachbeirat of the Max Planck Institute for Computer Science in Saarbrücken (2001-2011), and general chair of the ACM conference “Parallelism in Algorithms and Architectures (SPAA)“ (2007-2011). He has served on numerous program committees for conferences, as chair, among others, for SPAA, ICALP, and ESA.

Currently he serves as chairman of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Computer Science Research Center Schloss Dagstuhl, as leader of the Jury Mathematics/Computer Science of the German young researchers contest (Bundeswettbewerb “Jugend Forscht") (2007-today) and as a member of the Award Committee of the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS).

In the University of Paderborn, he serves as a member of the “Hochschulrat” and the council of the Heinz Nixdorf Institute (HNI), of the Paderborn Institute for Scientific Computation (PaSCo) as and its graduate school (deputy director), of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Computer Science and Engineering (PACE), and the International Graduate School “Dynamic Intelligent Systems” (deputy director). Since 2011, he is director of the the Collaborative Research Centre (DFG-SFB) "On-The-Fly Computing".

His research interests include algorithmic and complexity theoretical problems about parallel computing, communication and data management in networks, dynamics in networks, algorithms in computer graphics, and probabilistic analysis. He is (co-)author of more than 170 publications and some patents. He has advised more than 40 dissertations, 10 of his students obtained professor positions.
