Peter Puschner is a professor in computer science at Vienna University of Technology. He received his PhD from Vienna University of Technology in 1994 and then worked as a research associate at TU Vienna. In 1999 Puschner became a professor. In 2000/2001 Puschner held a Marie-Curie Category 30 fellowship (contract HPMF CT 1999-00184) and was a Marie-Curie research fellow at the University of York, England.
P. Puschner’s main research interest is on hard real-time systems for safety-critical applications, with a focus on the worst-case execution time (WCET) analysis of real-time programs and software/hardware architectures for time-predictable computing. He has strongly influenced the state of the art in these fields, published more than 80 refereed conference and journal papers, and was a guest editor for the special issue on WCET analysis of the Kluwer International Journal on Real-Time Systems in 2000. P. Puschner has been member of numerous program committees on embedded real-time systems, was the program-committee chair of the IEEE International Symposium on Object-oriented Real-time distributed Computing (ISORC) in 2003 and of the Euromicro Conference on Real-Time Systems (ECRST) in 2004. He was general chair of the Euromicro Conference on Real-Time Systems in 2002 and of ISORC in 2004.
P. Puschner has been coordinator and researcher in a number of research projects. At the European level, he has been involved in the EC-funded projects PDCS, DeVa, SETTA, NextTTA, and DECOS, was an executive-board member in the EC-funded Network of Excellence on distributed and dependable systems (CaberNet), and is a member of the ARTIST2 and ARTISTDesign networks of excellence on embedded systems. Nationally, he has coordinated a number of projects funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and projects funded within the FIT-IT embedded-systems initiative of the Austrian ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology. P. Puschner is a member of the IEEE Computer Society, Euromicro, the OCG (Austrian Computer Society), and the Marie-Curie Fellowship Association.
