The MoDCS research group received in the last March 06 the visit of Armin Zimmermann, Professor by Technische Universität Ilmenau, in the Computer Science and Automation faculty. He is coordinator of System and Software Engineering group.
Armin Zimmermann was born in Berlin in 1969. He studied computer science from 1988 to 1990 at Technische Universität Dresden. At the computer science department (now EE&CS) of Technische Universität Berlin he finished his Diploma in 1993. As a part of his thesis he implemented an analysis module of the Petri net tool TimeNET. In 1993 he received a grant from the graduate research training group on communication based systems of the Berlin universities. He has been a fellow of this program until 1997.
He published a book on Stochastic Discrete Event Systems – Modeling, Evaluation, Applications recently (Springer 2007). Since 2008 he serves as Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics in the area Formal Methods, Distributed & Discrete Event Systems in Automation and Embedded Systems. He is a member of the Industrial Automated Systems and Controls Subcommittee of the IEEE IES Technical Committee on Factory Automation (TCFA). Armin Zimmermann is editorial board member of the Int. Journal of Critical Computer-Based Systems (IJCCBS).
He teaches courses on Modelling, Performance analysis and Simulation, Software Engineering, Robotics, Real-time and Embedded Systems, Automation, and Operating Systems. He is a member of the German Informatics Society (GI), IEEE, and Deutscher Hochschulverband. His research interests include modelling, performance and dependability evaluation, optimization, and control of technical systems using discrete-event models as well as their tool support.
