Prof. Dr. Andreas Polze is the Operating Systems and Middleware Professor at the Hasso Plattner Institute at University Potsdam, Germany. He is also the speaker of the HPI Research School and member of the steering committee of HPI’s Future SOC Lab. Andreas received a doctoral degree from Freie University Berlin, Germany, in 1994 and a habilitation degree from Humboldt University Berlin in 2001, both in Computer Science. At HPI, his research focuses on architectures of operating systems, on component- based middleware, as well as on predictable distributed and cloud computing. Andreas Polze was visiting scientist with the Dynamic Systems Unit at Software Engineering Institute, at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA, where he worked on real-time computing on standard middleware (CORBA) and with the Real-Time Systems Laboratory at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Current research interests include Predictable Service Computing, Adaptive System Configuration, and End-to-End Service Availability for standard middleware platforms. Together with Charité, GETEMED, and Deutsche Telekom, he has run the Fontane telemedicine project. Joint research with SAP has investigated porting HANA to new processor architectures.
