Speaker(s): Christopher Gill (Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, Washington University, St Louis, USA)
New advances in parallel real-time scheduling theory and concurrency platforms are enabling a new generation of cyber-physical systems, which can support a challenging combination of (1) significant computational demands, (2) stringent timing constraints, and (3) dynamic and substantial changes in tasks' demand for computational resources at run-time. This talk will describe a series of recent advances in parallel real-time systems research, including both theoretical and practical results, and how each of them impacts the specific domain of real-time hybrid simulation: a cyber-physical approach to high-fidelity integration of simulation, sensing, actuation, and control that is increasingly relevant for earthquake engineering, autonomous vehicles, and other related applications.
Chris Gill is a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. His research spans real-time, embedded, and cyber-physical systems, with more than 90 peer-reviewed papers and articles in press over the past two decades. He was Washington University Principal Investigator for the CyberMech project (collaborative with Purdue University) that pioneered parallel real-time computing in real-time hybrid simulation. Dr. Gill has served as a Technical Program Chair and as a General Chair for the ICCPS, RTAS and RTSS conferences, as Treasurer of the IEEE Technical Committee on Real-Time Systems (TCRTS), and as Vice Chair of ACM SIGBED. Named a member of the IEEE Computer Society’s Golden Core in 2013, Dr. Gill is a senior member of the IEEE and of the ACM.
