Born in Rotterdam, PhD math. Utrecht 1976, with Leiden University till 1982,
with CWI Amsterdam till 1985, subsequently with the University of Amsterdam (UoA). Professor of software engineering since 1985, with Philips Research during 1988/9, visiting professor of informatics in Swansea. Currently director of Informatics Institute of the UoA Faculty of Science, Chair Informatics Section of Academia Europaea. Editor-in-chief of Science of Computer Programming. Also with Minstroom Research BV
I received the Laurea degree in Computer Science Engineering from the University of Naples Federico II, Italy, in 2003 and the Ph.D. degree in Information Engineering from the University of Sannio in 2007.
Since 2003 I have worked as a researcher in the field of software engineering writing more than 60 papers published in journals and conference proceedings. My main research interests include software maintenance and testing, software reuse, software reverse engineering, and re-engineering, with a particular interest in software modularization.
I also served both as a member of the program and organizing committees of several international conferences, and as a reviewer of papers submitted to some of the main journals and magazines in the field of data and process mining, software engineering, software maintenance, program comprehension, and the application of computational intelligence approaches in the above fields.
Currently, I am an Assistant Professor at Giustino Fortunato University, holding the courses of "Foundations of Computer Science" and "Software Systems and Services" for the Avionics Science and Technologies master degree.
Dirk Beyer is Professor of Computer Science and has a Research Chair for Software Systems at the University of Passau, Germany. Before, he worked at Simon Fraser University, B.C., Canada, at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland, and at UC Berkeley, CA, USA. His research focuses on models, algorithms, and tools for the construction and analysis of reliable software systems. He is the principal designer and implementor of several successful tools, for example, CCVisu, CPAchecker, CrocoPat, and BLAST.

Amy Felty is a Professor in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Ottawa, and is the Director of the Software Correctness and Safety Laboratory. Prof. Felty is an expert in formal methods and has over 20 years of experience in applying them in domains such as programming language design, privacy and security, safety of mobile code, protocol verification, telecommunications software, and access control policy analysis.
Professor of Computer Science. Recent research projects include "RoadRunner : A Dynamic Analysis Infrastructure", "Cooperable Concurrency : A Concurrent Programming Methodology", "Concurrency Types for X10: Race-Freedom, Atomicity, and Determinism". "Atomicity" and "Hybrid Type Checking".
Marieke Huisman is a professor in Software Reliability, working in the Formal Methods and Tools group at the Univ. of Twente, Netherlands. She obtained her PhD in 2001 from the Univ. of Nijmegen, in the area of semantics and verification of sequential Java programs. She worked 8 years at INRIA Sophia Antipolis, France on verification of concurrent programs. In 2008 she joined the UT. In 2010 she received an ERC Starting Grant for the VerCors project on Verification of Concurrent Data Structures. In 2017, she received a personal Vici grant from the Dutch Science Organisation.
Prof. Kaiser's research interests lie at the boundary of software engineering and software systems, focusing on software reliability, privacy and security, and social software engineering. She served on the editorial board of IEEE Internet Computing for many years, was a founding associate editor of ACM TOSEM, and chaired an ACM FSE Symposium. She has directed her department's doctoral program since 1997. Prof. Kaiser received her PhD from CMU and her ScB from MIT.
