Steven Johnson as a JuliaCon 2019 keynote speaker!


Hello all!

This summer Steven G. Johnson, Professor of Applied Mathematics and Physics at MIT, co-developer of the Fastest Fourier Transform in the West (FFTW) software library, and creator/maintainer of the Julia packages PyCall and IJulia, will join us as a keynote speaker at JuliaCon 2019. Dr. Johnson’s long history of contributions to scientific computation and software complements his work on many aspects of the theory, design, and computational modeling of nanophotonic devices, both classical and quantum. His research in wave-matter interactions and nanophotonics has led to over 200 papers and over 30 patents, including the textbook Photonic Crystals: Molding the Flow of Light.
