ARTIST Summer School in Morocco - 2010

July 11-16, 2010      Rabat, Morocco organised and funded by ARTIST 


Professor Peter Marwedel

TU 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.

Since 1989 he is a professor at the Computer Science Department of TU Dortmund. He served as the Dean of that Department between 1992 and 1995. His current research is focussed on software for embedded systems, with emphasis on code generation techniques for embedded systems, in particular memory and 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 and Springer.

He received the teaching award of his University in 2003, is ACM senior member and an IEEE fellow, due to his contributions to compilation techniques and embedded system design. He is a member of the ArtistDesign 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.

He has authored 6 books on real-time systems and over 200 papers in the field of real-time systems, robotics, and neural networks.

Professor Lothar Thiele

ETH Zurich, Switzerland
Lothar Thiele received his Diplom-Ingenieur and Dr.-Ing. Degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Technical University of Munich in 1981 and 1985 respectively. After completing his Habilitation thesis from the Institute of Network Theory and Circuit Design of the Technical University Munich, he joined the Information Systems Laboratory at Stanford University in 1987.

In 1988, he took up the chair of microelectronics at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Saarland, Saarbrucken, Germany. He joined ETH Zurich, Switzerland, as a full Professor of Computer Engineering, in 1994. He is leading the Computer Engineering and Networks Laboratory of ETH Zurich.

His research interests include models, methods and software tools for the design of embedded systems, embedded software and bioinspired optimization techniques.

In 1986 he received the "Dissertation Award" of the Technical University of Munich, in 1987, the "Outstanding Young Author Award" of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, in 1988, the Browder J. Thompson Memorial Award of the IEEE, and in 2000-2001, the "IBM Faculty Partnership Award". In 2004, he joined the German Academy of Natural Scientists Leopoldina. In 2005, he was the recipient of the Honorary Blaise Pascal Chair of University Leiden, The Netherlands.

Professor Luis Almeida

University of Porto, Portugal
Luis Almeida is currently an associate professor at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the University of Porto and a member of the Institute of Telecommunications in Porto and of the Electronics and Telematics Engineering Institute of Aveiro in which he coordinated the Electronic Systems Lab between 2003 and early 2008. He is also a member of the IEEE, Computer Society, and particularly of its Technical Committee on Real-Time Systems, member of the IFIP Tecnical Committee on Embedded Systems, member of the Strategic Management Board of the EU/ICT NoE ArtistDesign, leading the Real-Time Networks activity in that NoE, Trustee of the RoboCup Federation and Vice-President of the Portuguese National Robotics Society.

His current interests are real-time communication protocols for embedded systems with an emphasis on mechanisms to support predictable operational flexibility as needed for dynamic QoS management, graceful degradation and open distributed real-time systems in general. He co-authored over 150 refereed publications, 3 patents and 6 book chapters. He regularly participates in the organization and program committees of scientific events in the Real-Time Systems and Robotics communities, including RTSS, ECRTS, DATE, SIES, WFCS, ETFA and RoboCup

Professor Brian Nielsen

University of Aalborg, Denmark
Brian Nielsen is associate professor at Department of Computer Science at Aalborg University, Denmark. He is working in the area of distributed and embedded systems, currently emphasizing automated formal model-based development, quantitative analysis, and testing of real-time systems. In this field he has several publications, and he has given numerous presentations at scientific venues as well as for industrial audiences.

Brian Nielsen holds an MSc degree in electronic engineering and a PhD in computer science, both from Aalborg University. He has been a visiting researcher at the University of Illinois and University of Bremen. He is very active in the Centre of Embedded Software Systems (CISS) where he is managing several industrial collaboration projects in software testing and application of automated model-based testing. He is also active in the European ARTIST Network of Excellence, Quasimodo, and other national and international research projects.
