ARTIST School in South America 2009: Embedded Systems Design

August 3-7, 2009       Buenos Aires, Argentina organised and funded by ARTIST 


Mario Aldea, University of Cantabria, Spain

Mario Aldea Rivas received his degree in Physics (Electronics) from the University of Cantabria (Spain) in 1992. Since then, he has been working at the Computers and Real-Time group of that university where, in 2003, he obtained his Ph. D. with a thesis on flexible scheduling in real-time operating systems. He obtained an Assistant Professor position in 2003 and is an Associate Professor since 2007. He has carried out an intense teaching and research activity on Operating Systems and Programming Languages for embedded real-time applications. His main research interests are: real-time operating systems, real-time programming languages and flexible scheduling. His work has had impact on the real-time extensions of the POSIX and Ada 2005 international standards. As a part of his research activity he has developed MaRTE OS: a real-time operating system for embedded applications that implements the POSIX minimal real-time profile. MaRTE OS is used by a number of companies and universities all around the world.

Christoph Kirsch, University of Salzburg, Austria

Christoph Kirsch received the Dr.Ing. degree from Saarland University, Saarbruecken, Germany, in 1999 while at the Max Planck Institute for Computer Science in Saarbruecken. He then worked as Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences of the University of California, Berkeley. Since 2004, he is full professor and holds a chair at the Department of Computer Sciences of the University of Salzburg, Austria. His research interests are in concurrent programming and systems, virtual execution environments, and embedded real-time software. Dr. Kirsch co-invented the Giotto and HTL languages, and leads the JAviator unmanned-aerial-vehicle project for which he received an IBM faculty award in 2007. He co-founded the International Conference on Embedded Software (EMSOFT), has been general co-chair of ESWEEK 2008, and is general chair of LCTES 2009. He has been invited to serve on program committees of CASE, Coordination, DATE, EMSOFT, EUC, EuroSys, LCTES, OOPSLA, RTAS, RTSS, and VEE.
