Topic: Self-Assembling Distributed Internet Software

Presented By: Dr. Yuriy Brun
From: University of Washingon, USA
Biography: Yuriy Brun is an NSF CRA postdoctoral Computing Innovation Fellow at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA, USA. He received his Ph.D. degree in 2008 from the University of Southern California, as an Andrew Viterbi Fellow, and his M.Eng. degree in 2003 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His doctoral research was a finalist in the ACM Doctoral Dissertation Competition in 2008. Brun’s research interests are in the area of engineering self-adaptive and self-managing software systems. His work combines theoretical computer science approaches to modeling nature-inspired algorithms and software engineering approaches to leveraging those algorithms to build systems.

Topic: Cake: A Language for Adapting and Linking Mismatched Binary Components

Presented By: Stephen Kell, Ph.D.
From: Networks and Operating Systems group, University of Cambridge
Biography: Stephen Kell is a third-year PhD student at the University of Cambridge’s Computer Laboratory, based (loosely) in the Networks and Operating Systems group and supervised by Dr. David J. Greaves. His interests span many aspects of programming tools, languages, runtimes, operating systems and networks, with an emphasis on their interaction with human beings (primarily programmers) and a special interest in issues of adaptation, evolution migration and compatibility. Before starting his Ph.D. he was a research assistant at the Laboratory, working on virtualization and system security. He received the B.A. in 2005, also from the University of Cambridge.
