ASCI Doctoral Course on Design and Implementation of Real-time Systems

As the lead of this initiative, I am so proud to announce the successful completion of the one-week doctoral course on Design and Implementation of Real-Time Systems, the first edition ( under the Advanced School for Computing and Imaging (ASCI).

🎓 This course brought together 15 PhD students from various Dutch universities, each engaged in diverse research areas within computer science. I am thrilled to report that the course was well-received, earning a rating of 8.7 out of 10 in the evaluation! Special thanks to Christian Hakert and Kay Heider for their exceptional support in the hands-on exercises, which were highlighted by most of the evaluation feedback.

📚 Through a blend of rigorous lectures and hands-on exercises, participants gained a robust understanding of both the theoretical and practical aspects of real-time systems. We were also delighted to have Bram van der Sanden and Kostas Triantafyllidis from TNO-ESI on the final day, shedding light on the complexity of the high-tech equipment domain and the pressing need for innovative model-based engineering methodologies to wrap up the course.

🤝 Working alongside my partners Mitra Nasri, Geoffrey Nelissen and Benny Akesson was a profoundly rewarding experience. Engaging with the PhD students, exchanging knowledge, and exploring their innovative research areas was enriching for all involved. I am confident that the participants have acquired valuable insights and built strong academic networks that will support their future research endeavors.

Looking forward to the next edition and continued collaboration to advance research and education in real-time systems with you all!
