Lecturers and Seminar Speakers


Prof. Dr. Peter Marwedel

University of Dortmund, Germany

- Peter Marwedel received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Kiel (Germany) in 1974. He worked at the Computer Science Department of that University from 1974 until 1989. In 1987, he received the Dr. habil. degree for his work on high-level synthesis and retargetable code generation based on the hardware description language MIMOLA.

His current research is focussed on software for embedded systems, with emphasis on code generation techniques for embedded systems, in particular energy-aware compilers.
- His publications include the books "Code Generation for Embedded Processors", "Retargetable Compiler Technology" and "Embedded System Design", all published by Kluwer Academic publishers.
- He is a member of the accreditation commission I (engineering and informatics) of ASIIN, a society in charge of the accreditation of engineering and science education in Germany. He received the teaching award of his University in 2003 and is a member of the ARTIST2 network of excellence on embedded and real-time systems in Europe.
- Dr. Marwedel heads the ICD, a private technology transfer center at Dortmund and is actively promoting the use of research results in industry.

Dr. Joseph Sifakis

VERIMAG Laboratory, Grenoble, France

- Joseph Sifakis is CNRS researcher and the Director of Verimag Laboratory in Grenoble, France. He studied Electrical Engineering at the Technical University of Athens and Computer Science at the University of Grenoble.
- Joseph Sifakis worked on both theoretical and practical aspects of Concurrent Systems Specification and Verification. He contributed to the development of the state of the art in verification methods and tools by model-checking for both untimed and timed systems. His current research interests include modeling, design and analysis of real-time systems with a focus on composability and compositionality. (Further information: here).
