Martin Gogolla is professor for Computer Science at University of Bremen, Germany and is the head of the Database Systems Group. His research interests include software development with object-oriented approaches, formal methods in system design, semantics of languages, and formal specification. Before joining the University of Bremen he worked for the University of Dortmund and the Technical University of Braunschweig. His professional activities include: Publications in journals and conference proceedings; publication of books; speaker to university and industrial colloquia; referee for journals and conferences; organizer of workshops and conferences (e.g., the UML/MODELS conference); member in international and national program committees; contributor to international computer science standards (OCL as part of UML). Martin Gogolla is actively participating in the MODELS conference (as PB Member, PC member, PC chair, SC member, SC chair, Workshop organizer, Educators' and Doctoral Symposium Organizer). He is involved in the organisation of the OCL workhops and the ICMT and TAP conferences. In his group, basic work on the semantics of and the tooling for UML, OCL and other modeling languages has been carried out. The group developes the OCL and UML tool USE (UML-based Specification Environment, available at sourceforge) since about 15 years.
Keynote Subject: Employing the Object Constraint Language in Model-Based Engineering
Dierk Steinbach, Cassidian, EADS Deutschland GmbH, Germany.
I studied physics, computer science and economical mathematics at the University of Ulm (Germany), the Université Claude-Bernard in Lyon (France), the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque (New Mexico, U.S.A.) and the Daimler Research Center in Ulm (Germany). During my studies I focused on complex dynamics. In particular in my diploma thesis I used an information theoretic approach to describe chaotic quantum systems. Then, I received my PhD in physics for my work on electrical transport mechanisms in polycrystalline artificial diamond layers. In addition, I also worked on thermal transport in this material. I achieved an extensive and broad experience in the techniques and tools for modeling and simulation. Since 2000 I have worked for EADS Deutschland GmbH (Cassidian) in different aeronautical projects (BOING NATO AWACS E-3 Midterm Modernization, Airbus A400M Military Mission Management System, EC725 for the Brazilian Navy) on avionic systems in system, equipment and software development. At the same time I have contributed to both the system development processes of the company, as well as the establishment of guidelines for model based system engineering. I have focused on the development of safety critical real time systems, which are subject to civil and military certification regulations. I have taken over an increasing level of responsibility. Since 1st February 2013 I am heading the Avionic Systems Engineering department of Cassidian.
