Professor Hermann Kopetz to visit ISIS for Seminar Course

Professor Hermann Kopetz from the Technical University of Vienna, will be at ISIS the week of October 18-22 and offers a seminar course as a trial run of his new book on Real Time Systems Design.


Professor Hermann Kopetz received his PhD degree is physics "sub auspiciis praesidentis" from the Technical University of Vienna, Austria in 1968.  He was a manager of a computer process control department at Voest Alpine in Linz, Austria, before joining the Technical University of Berlin as a professor for Computer Process Control in 1978.  Since 1982, he has been a professor for Real-Time Systems at the Vienna University of Technology.

Dr. Kopetz' research interests focus at the intersection of real-time systems, fault-tolerant systems, and distributed systems.  He is the chief architect of the Time-Triggered Protocol (TTP) for distributed fault-tolerant real-time systems, which evolved out of the MARS project at the Technical University of Vienna.  In the last few years, Dr. Kopetz and his research group have worked in the field of automotive electronics.  He is presently involved in two large European ESPIRIT projects where his pioneering work on time-triggered architectures is being transferred to the automotive industry.

Professor Kopetz will teach a seminar based on the new edition of his classic textbook titled: "Real-time systems: design principles for distributed embedded applications".
