Henri Elle Bal,
a Dutch mathematician, computer scientist and Professor at Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam. He is a influential and luminary researcher and authority in parallel computing, computer cluster, parallel programming languages, optimizing compiler and parallel applications. Bal has been a member of over 30 program committees, and as such has had a major impact on the field of parallel computing [1] . Henri Bal received a M.Sc. in Mathematics from the Delft University of Technology in 1982, and Ph.D. in CS [2] in 1989 under the supervision of Andrew S. Tanenbaum. He was visiting researcher at Imperial College, London, University of Arizona, Tucson and Massachusetts Institute of Technology [3]. Along with Robbert van Renesse in 1986, he wrote papers on parallel alpha-beta, with Victor Allis in 1995 on parallel retrograde analysis [4], and in 2002, with his student John Romein, he solved the game of Awari [5] [6] .

DAS-3

Henri Bal was the driving force behind the acquisition and use of three large distributed cluster computers called the Distributed ASCI Supercomputer (DAS), a Computer Science Grid with revolutionary Optical Interconnect [8] .
