Pierre Vande Vyvre
Project Leader, ALICE Data Acquisition Project, Group Leader, CERN
Pierre Vande Vyvre joined CERN in 1983 and worked on data acquisitions for several high energy physics experiments. He was appointed in 1995 project leader of the data acquisition of the ALICE experiment. He is also co-leading the O2 project since 2012 aiming at designing and implementing a new computing system for the data collection and processing of the ALICE experiment after 2018. Pierre holds an engineer degree in electronics from the ECAM in Brussels and a master in computing science from the ULB (Université Libre de Buxelles).
The ALICE experiment is one of the 4 experiments taking data at the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) since 2008. It is the heavy-ion detector designed to study the physics of strongly interacting matter and the quark-gluon plasma at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
