Short Bio

Jörg Nolte is tenured professor for computer science at the Brandenburg University of Technology (BTU) in Cottbus (Germany) where he leads the group for distributed systems and operating systems.
Prior to that position he was a senior researcher at the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, Institute for Computer Architecture and Software Technology (FIRST), Berlin.
He received his M.S. (Dipl.Inform.) in computer science in 1988 and his Ph.D. (Dr.-Ing.) in 1994, both from the Technical University of Berlin. He was a principal member and finally the vice head of the PEACE group that developed the operating system for Germany’s first massively parallel supercomputer. In the 90s he was a post doc fellow and senior researcher in the Tsukuba Research Center (TRC) of the Real World Computing Partnership (RWCP) in Tsukuba Science City, Japan. Since that time his research concentrated on scalable, low-latency middleware and operating system platforms for clusters and other parallel architectures, including rather strange ones such as wireless sensor networks.
He is the member of the board of the special interest group for operating systems of the german GI and is currently the dean of the Faculty 1 (Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology) of the BTU. His major research interests are operating systems, middleware and programming languages for parallel, distributed and embedded systems.
