Keynote Speaker: Dr. Paul Lukowicz
Dr. Paul Lukowicz is Professor of Computer Science at the University of Passau, where he holds the Chair for Embedded Systems. He has a MSc (Diplom) in Computer, a MSc (Diplom) in Physics and a Ph.D in Computer Science all from the University of Karlsruhe in Germany. After his Ph.D., Paul Lukowicz went to ETH Zurich where he built up the wearable computing group with a strong focus on activity and context recognition.
He then went on to Professorship in Computer Engineering at the University of Medical Informatics and Technology in Hall in Tirol, Austria (UMIT) where his group worked on health related applications of pervasive and wearable computing and context recognition.
Paul Lukowicz is Associate Editor in Chief IEEE Pervasive Magazine and member of the Editorial Board Member Hindawi Advances in Human Computer Interaction. Between 2008 and 2010 he has been in charge of the Wearable computing Department of the IEEE Pervasive Magazine.
His group’s research is devoted to adaptive, intelligent systems seamlessly integrated in the environment. This includes wearable computing, sensors and sensor networks, activity and context recognition, software tools, system models, and a wide range of pervasive computing applications. We are particularly interested in large scale systems that self organize to cooperate in dynamic, opportunistic configurations. In the application area we have a strong emphasis on health and wellness related systems.
