1.    Short Bio

 

Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Thomas Strang studied computer science at the University of Technology (RWTH) in Aachen and received his Diploma degree (Dipl.-Inform.) in 1998. At this time his special interests focused on communications and distributed & multi agent systems, including high speed networks and telecommunications, local area networks, multimedia communications, computer graphics and security. His diploma thesis was about a video gateway to support video streaming to mobile clients.

 

Parallel to university he worked in industry from 1988 to 2000, where he gained experiences in design, development and management of several projects in the area of large scale security systems.

 

Since July 2000 he has been working as a researcher in the Institute of Communications and Navigation at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. Here his research focus has been on ubiquitous and pervasive computing, location- and context-awareness, service discovery and execution frameworks, Semantic Web and smart mobile devices. Since 2004 he has been responsible for the Institute’s programme in transportation research, which includes adaptive services for intelligent transportation systems and ad-hoc vehicle-to-vehicle communications.

 

In 2003 he was awarded a Doctor’s degree in natural sciences (Dr. rer. nat.) at the University of Munich, Germany, with a dissertation on service interoperability in ubiquitous computing environments.

 

Since October 2004 he has been a professor for computer science at the University of Innsbruck, Austria, and has also given lectures at the University of Munich (LMU) and at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). Between 2005 and 2006, he has been an Executive Director as well as acting Head of Institute at the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI) in Innsbruck, Austria, where he also led a research group on ubiquitous services.
