Research Talk by Prof. Poul Heegaard "From Dependability to Survivability Quantification"

Monday, 27 November 2017, 14.15 - 15.45, SA-215

We are happy to announce that Prof. Poul E. Heegaard will visit our lab in November and will give a talk on dependability and survivability quantification. The talk is open and appropriate for any interested master, or PhD students who want to learn about dependability and survivability. Prof. Heegaard will be available the whole week for further discussions. Date: Monday, 27 November 2017, 14.15 - 15.45, SA-215 If you are interested and want to listen to this talk, we kindly ask you to register yourself via this doodle registration until Nov 22th for organizational reasons. From Dependability to Survivability Quantification 
Abstract: In this talk we will introduce the concept and definition of dependability and survivability, and present different approaches to model and quantify dependability and survivability in systems and networks. The talk addressed the following topics. 
  • dependability concepts and taxonomy
  • static and dynamic models in dependability quantification
  • from dependability to survivability (incl. performability, (partial)recovery, forced failure)
Bio: Poul E. Heegaard is Professor at NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology), Department of Telematics (Department of Information Security and Communication Technology from Jan 1, 2017).  Heegaard has since 2006 been on the faculty at NTNU, and was Head of Department 2009-2013, and now head of Head of QUAM lab: https://www.ntnu.edu/iik/quam. He has also been a Senior Research Scientist at Telenor R&I, and Senior Scientist at SINTEF Telecom and Informatics. Heegaard is the author/co-author of more than 150 articles and has supervised 9 PhDs. He has given numerous tutorial and talks at international meetings and conferences. His research interests cover performance, dependability and survivability evaluation and management of communication systems. Special interest has been rare event simulation techniques, and monitoring, routing and management in dynamic networks.  His current research focus is on performance, dependability and survivability in interacting complex systems, which includes distributed, autonomous and adaptive management and routing in communication networks and services.  Examples are Software Defined Networking and ICT-power system integration (Smart Grid).
