Loeng teemal "Actor-oriented Design"Neljapäev, 05. oktoober 2006
Lektor: Leandro Soares Indrusiak
Actor-orientation is a methodology that allows the design of concurrent systems using different models of computation. To do so, it advocates for the separation of the system's structure from its execution semantics. This lecture covers the basic motivation for actor orientation, a number of models of computation which are useful to specify a variety of systems, and a framework that supports actor-orientation in practice.

Leandro Soares Indrusiak is a senior researcher at the Institute of Microelectronic Systems of the Darmstadt University of Technology, in Germany. He has teaching and research responsibilities on system-level design automation of electronic systems and leads a group of graduate students working on the application of the design automation
techniques in areas such as image processing, telecommunications, sensor networks, reconfigurable computing and remote instrumentation. Leandro Indrusiak received his Electrical Engineer degree from the Federal University of Santa Maria (UFSM, Brazil) in 1995, his Master degree in Computer Science from the Federal University of Rio Grande
do Sul (UFRGS, Porto Alegre, Brazil) in 1998 and a Doctoral degree jointly issued by the Darmstadt University of Technology and the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul in 2003.
