Keynote: Dr. Robert Roser, Scientific Computing Division Head, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab)
Robert Roser Dr. Robert Roser is senior member of the scientific staff at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory located just west of Chicago. Dr. Roser began his career at the University of Connecticut where he majored in physics. While earning his bachelors degree, he worked in a Van de Graaff accelerator laboratory doing atomic physics. Upon graduation, he entered the University of Rochester's PhD program in experimental particle physics and worked at Fermilab on a fixed-target experiment studying the QCD process of direct photons. After graduation, he accepted a postdoctoral fellowship with the University of Illinois in Urbana Champagne and joined the CDF experiment. He was part of the team that discovered the top quark in 1995 and led the top quark physics analysis group from 1996-1998. Dr. Roser joined the Fermilab scientific staff as a Wilson Fellow in 1997. He has held a number of leadership positions on the CDF experiment including supervising much of the Run II upgrades, leading the Detector Commissioning and early Operations effort and has served as its leader and scientific spokesperson for the past 8 years where this group found first evidence of the Higgs Boson. Most recently, he has accepted the position as head of the Scientific Computing Division at Fermilab and is now a member of the CMS experiment at CERN. He is a member of numerous scientific advisory panels, is a fellow of the American Physical Society and is the author of over 600-refereed publications.

Rob Roser has been on the front lines of one of the most exciting periods in the history of physics. In his role at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) just outside of Chicago, and as the leader of the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) and technical liaison to Europe's Organization for Nuclear and Particle Research (CERN), Roser led a team of scientists searching for evidence of the Higgs boson, also known as the "God Particle. In January 2012, Roser was named the head of Fermilab's Scientific Computing Division, which provides the facilities, tools, and programming necessary for scientists to conduct their experiments and analyze their findings.
Roser recently sat down with A.T. Kearney's Christian Hagen, Khalid Khan, and Dan Wall to discuss the challenge of big data, the evolution of scientific computing and technology, and the identification and recruitment of needed talent.

One article from yahoo news says, "Fermilab Staff Scientist Robert Roser says the Higgs boson is a particle that attracts other particles, and explains how matter has mass. This gives clues to how planets, and ultimately life, is formed. But he points out his colleagues at CERN were careful to say they found a "Higgs-like" object, but not the Higgs boson itself.
