Short Biography


Professor David Hill is doing his research at the French Centre for National Research (CNRS UMR 6158) in the LIMOS laboratory. He is currently head of a graduate track at Clermont-Auvergne INP (with 4 master degrees taught in English – selective scholarships are proposed for international students). Prof. Hill was Vice President of Blaise Pascal University (2008-2012) and also past director of a French Regional Computing Center (CRRI mesocenter). He was appointed two times deputy director (2005-2007 ; 2018-2021) of the Auvergne Institute of Computer Science ISIMA, a French “Grande Ecole d’Ingénieur”, delivering an engineering degree as part of Clermont Auvergne INP and UCA (University). ISIMA is a Public Engineering School in Computer Science & Modeling with Cti certification, where Prof. Hill managed various departments since 1994, he received his French qualification as Research Director in 2000 and the doctor degree in 1993 (in Object-Oriented Software Engineering and Simulation) all from Blaise Pascal University. He also holds a French "Diplome d'Ingenieur", DEA "Diplome d'Etude Avancee" (received in 1990) and a French Maitrise (1989). With Vincent Breton, he has been the scientific head of the AuverGrid the Regional Computing Mesocenter. Professor Hill has supervised and co-supervised more than 25 PhD students, authored or co-authored more than 250 papers and he has also published several text books. He recently supervised research at CERN (2019-2022).
