Ronald P. Luijten (CE), senior IEEE member, is the initiator and was senior technical project leader of the DOME hot-water cooled microDataCenter project. In 2019 Ronald was on sabbatical at ETH Zurich architecting a non-Von-Neumann weather/climate code accelerator (Cloudchaser) and his personal research interests are in data-center architecture, design and performance ("Data Motion in Data Centers"). He holds more than 35 issued patents, and has co-organized 7 IEEE conferences. Over 35 years, IBM has awarded Ronald with three outstanding technical achievement awards and a corporate patent award. He worked on various communication technologies, packet switching and network performance (WAN and ICT).
On 28 Feb 2020 Ronald graduated from the Zurich IBM Research Laboratory in Switzerland. He is pursuing building the Cloudchaser accelerator thru his new company Data Motion Architecture & Services GmbH.

|Alex Luijten obtained both his Bachelor's and Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering at ETH Zurich. During his studies, he gained practical experience as a team member of the Carbon Factory focus project, developing a robotic system to manufacture parts using high-performance carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastics. Additionally, he worked as a mechanical engineer in the industry at 9T Labs. He wrote his Master's thesis at CMASLab on the topic of bicomponent fiber production, entitled: "Polymeric flash nanoprecipitation for the sustainable coating of single fibers". Alex joined CMASLab as a research assistant and process engineer, working to industrialize the bicomponent fiber technology via the project "Antefil Composite Tech".
