Young Scientist Award for Anna Westhoff

During the 11th Workshop on Parallel Algorithms and Systems and Algorithms (PASA) recently held in Lübeck, Anna Westhoff was awarded the "PARS-Nachwuchspreis der PARS-GI/ITG-Fachgruppe" for her presentation of work based on her master's thesis. Her paper "Hybrid parallelization of a seeded region growing segmentation of brain images for a GPU cluster" describes her approach to identifying brain and non-brain regions in images captured with the polarized light imaging technique developed at the Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine (INM-1) at Forschungszentrum Jülich. The algorithm has been successfully parallelized for the GPU cluster JUDGE using MPI and CUDA. We congratulate Anna Westhoff on her prize.
