The Fifth International Itasca Symposium will be held at the University of Vienna (Austria). The Symposium will features the application of Itasca software for solving engineering and scientific challenges in geomechanics, hydrogeology, microseismicity, and more.
Mr. Hughes has extensive experience working at ICL on developing enhancements to the InSite application including a new 3D visualizer, tools for velocity model calibration, array analysis, discrete fracture network inversion, source scan location and the real-time triggering of data from miniSEED files and multiple arrays.
He has also revised and enhanced the data acquisition software used with ICL’s laboratory test equipment. His expertise is in the use of the C++ programming language using Visual Studio. In addition to this, he has extensive experience using MFC, OpenGL, HDF5, SQL Server, .NET and TCP/IP socket programming.
In total, he has over 30 years of experience developing software, mainly PC based, but also hosted on embedded and IP telephony platforms. Mr. Hughes holds a B.A. in Physics from Oxford University.
