HOW TO TOUGHEN UP YOUR CLOCKS: BYZANTINE FAULTS, SECURITY, SELF-STABILIZATION AND TIME
Christoph Lenzen, Ph.D. received a diploma in mathematics from the University of Bonn and a Ph.D. from ETH Zurich. After postdoc positions at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the Weizmann Institute of Science, and MIT, he took on a position as group leader at MPI for Informatics. In July 2021 he became a tenure-track faculty member at CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security. His research interests span from the theory of distributed systems to designing fault-tolerant hardware and related security issues. An ERC starting grant supported his work on fault-tolerant hardware, which lead to the results presented in this talk.
RELIABLE COMMUNICATION IN SPACE VEHICLES
Reinhard Exel received his Dipl.-Ing. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Vienna University of Technology, Austria, in 2007 and 2012 respectively. During his work at the Institute for Integrated Sensor Systems (Austrian Academy of Science) as well as the University for Continuing Education Krems, he has contributed to several projects in the area of industrial communication, network-based clock synchronization, and wireless indoor positioning. He has been an author of more than 35 technical papers. In 2014, he moved to TTTech working as a System-on-Chip architect to develop ASICs for Aerospace and Space applications based on Time-triggered Ethernet. These products are used in Space launchers (like Ariane-6), helicopters or turbofan engines. Since 2017 he also led a team for Digital Design in the field of Space and Aerospace.
