Marcel Roelofs received his Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the Technical University of Twente in 1993 on the application of Computer Algebra in Mathematical Physics. From 1993 to 1995 he worked as a post-doc at the Centre for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI) in Amsterdam in the area of Computer Algebra, and had a part-time position at the Research Institute for the Application of Computer Algebra. In 1995 he accepted his current position as CTO of AIMMS B.V. His main responsibilities are the design and documentation of the AIMMS language and user interface.
Johannes Bisschop received his Ph.D. in Mathematical Sciences from the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore USA in 1974. From 1975 to 1980 he worked as a Researcher in the Development Research Center of the World Bank in Washington DC, USA. In 1980 he returned to The Netherlands and accepted a position as a Research Mathematician at Shell Research in Amsterdam. After some years he also accepted a second part-time position as a full professor in the Applied Mathematics Department at the Technical University of Twente. From 1989 to 2003 he combined his part-time position at the University with managing Paragon Decision Technology B.V. and the continuing development of AIMMS. From 2003 to 2005 he held the position of president of Paragon Decision Technology B.V. His main interests are in the areas of computational optimization and modeling.
