Günter Rote was born in 1960 in Klagenfurt, Austria. He received his PhD under the supervision of Rainer E. Burkard from TU Graz in 1988. Günter Rothe is an expert in computational geometry, and he has coined many colorful German expressions such as “Balde” (treap), “Fegegerade” (sweep line), or “Kanalgitter” (hashtag). Günther has collaborated with generations of researchers in Germany and around the world. He has advised 14 PhD students, many of whom went on to become distinguished scientists.
Helmut Alt was born in 1950 in Wolfersweiler, Saarland. He received his PhD under the supervision of Kurt Mehlhorn from Saarland University in 1976. Helmut Alt is a pioneer of computational geometry and coined the German term “Algorithmische Geometrie.” Helmut has inspired generations of researchers in Germany and around the world with his work. He was involved in establishing such community forums as the European Workshop on Computational Geometry and the Dagstuhl Workshop on Computational Geometry. Throughout his career, Helmut has advised more than 14 PhD students, many of whom went on to become distinguished scientists.
