Dear All in BigInsight. Hope you are having an exciting start of 2017!
I wish to inform you about a few changes in our organization.

Håvard Rue has moved from NTNU to take a professor position in Saudi Arabia, and therefore leaves BigInsight as codirector. We thank him very much for his help so far and wish him success in his new exciting position.

We welcome Associate Professor Ingrid Hobæk Haff, from the Department of Mathematics of UiO and Assistant Research Director PhD Anders Løland, from Norsk Regnesentral, as two new co-directors of BigInsight!

Ingrid Hobæk Haff takes also the responsibility of co-PI of the Innovation Objective area Fraud, which was also left free by the departure of Håvard.

We thank Professor Arne Bang Huseby for his help in the first years as co-PI of the IO Power, and welcome Professor Carlo Mannino, from the Department of Mathematics of UiO, as new co-Pi of the the Innovation Objective area Power.

Best wishes
Arnoldo

20 persons attended the first lecture of the intensive course held by Big Insight's guests Per Mykland and Lan Zhang on 5th January. The lectures are open to everybody, and we had a nice mix of master and phd students, researchers and partners.
