Dr. Albert M. K. Cheng is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Houston, where he is the founding Director of the Real-Time Systems Laboratory. He has served as a technical consultant for several organizations, including IBM, and was also a visiting faculty in the Departments of Computer Science at Rice University and at the City University of Hong Kong.
He is the author/co-author of over sixty refereed publications in IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering (TSE), IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (TKDE), Real-Time Systems Symposium (RTSS), Real-Time Technology and Applications Symposium (RTAS), and other leading conferences. He is serving and has served on the program committees of many conferences in his areas of research. He is a frequent reviewer for the IEEE-CS Publications Office as well as for many international journals and conferences, One of his recent work presents a timing analysis of the X-38 Space Station Crew Return Vehicle Avionics, which contains a fault-tolerant distributed system.
Dr. Cheng has received numerous awards, including the National Science Foundation Research Initiation Award (now known as the NSF CAREER award). He has been invited to present seminars and tutorials at over 25 conferences, including IEEE CAIA, IEEE COMPASS, IEEE PDIS, IEEE SAST, IEA/AIE, SEKE, SEA, DAIS, IEEE CBMS, IEEE IC3N, ICCIMA, EIS, ICPDCS, IEEE ICECCS, IEEE IPCCC, IEEE MASCOT, ACM SAC, ICEIS, IEEE ICMCS, IEEE ISSRE, ACM CIKM, and IEEE IECON; and has given invited seminars/keynotes at many universities and organizations.
He is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, a Guest Co-Editor of two IEEE TSE Special Issues on Software and Performance (Nov. and Dec. 2000), an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Computer and Information Science, the work-in-progress program chair of the 2001 IEEE-CS Real-Time Technology and Applications (RTAS), the invited special panel chair for the software engineering for multimedia session at the 1999 IEEE-CS International Conference on Multimedia Computing Systems (ICMCS), and a Senior Member of the IEEE.
Dr. Cheng received the B.A. with Highest Honors in Computer Science, graduating Phi Beta Kappa, the M.S. in Computer Science with a minor in Electrical Engineering, and the Ph.D. in Computer Science, all from The University of Texas at Austin, where he held a GTE Foundation Doctoral Fellowship. He is the author of the new senior/graduate-level textbook entitled Real-Time Systems: Scheduling, Analysis, and Verification (John Wiley & Sons) ISBN # 0471-184063, 2002.
Brief Bio of Prof. Michel Léonard
Michel LEONARD is full Professor of Information System in the department of Information System at the Faculty of Social and Economic Science at the University of Geneva since 1977. He is currently the Head of this Department. His research interests concern the development of the Information System as a major discipline at the research level and at the curriculum level. Actually he is conducting several research programs about static and dynamic models, hyperclasses, information system components, new Information Systems approach taking into account their necessary flexibility in particular for the integrity
Thus he conducted several Database management systems projects. The first one, ECRINS, is among the oldest DBMS with a specialization mechanism, which was not the inheritance mechanism, but with a dynamic specialization mechanism (1985). A second one, PIREE, was dedicated to economic data with time series and data minig capabilities (1986). A fouth one FARANDOLE was dedicated to data analysis and data mining. The last one F2 is one among the most flexible DBMS : it was in the ADA environment (1995) and its model was a relational/object-oriented model. Presently his team is developing the CAISE environment M7, which takes the information components and the flexibility capabilities into account for the IS development.
He is member of the CAISE conference board and the IFIP WG 8.1.
