Inaugural lecture, ESI research fellow, professor Twan Basten

On 15 April 2011 Twan Basten will present his inaugural lecture. Twan was, per 1 May 2009, appointed full time professor Computational Models for Networked Embedded Systems at the faculty Electrical Engineering of Eindhoven University of Technology.

His lecture will be in Dutch. The title is 'De computer verdwijnt' (the computer will disappear).

  • Friday 15 April, 16:00-17:00
  • Eindhoven University of Technology, Auditorium, Blauwe Zaal

Twan Basten
is a research fellow at ESI and professor of computational models in the Electronic Systems (ES) group at the Electrical Engineering department of the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).

Before he started in the Electrical Engineering department in 1999, Twan was working at the Computing Science department in the Formal Methods and Information Systems groups at the TU/e. In 2000/2001, he spent some time as a visiting researcher at Philips Research Eindhoven (Information Processing Architectures group).

As a Master's student, he spent one year at the Computer Science department of the University of Waterloo, in Ontario, Canada. Early 2006, he had a three months sabbatical leave in the System-Level Design group of the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

Twan's current research area is the design of complex, resource-constrained embedded systems with a focus on networked and multiprocessor systems, trade-off analysis, and computational models. He is particularly interested in the boundary between software and hardware. He believes that the design of such systems should be based on a rigorous mathematical foundation. From an application point of view, the Ambient Intelligence vision provides interesting ideas.

Topics he worked on in the past are workflow management, formal methods in system design, and distributed debugging.
