Josef Widder

 

I am temporary associate professor (Privatdozent) in the Embedded Computing Systems group at TU Wien.
In the past, I worked at the Parasol Lab at Texas A&M University, the Laboratoire d’Informatique LIX at Ecole polytechnique, and at the FORSYTE group at TU Wien.

My primary area of interest is the theoretical approach to distributed algorithms, currently focussing on automated verification of fault-tolerant distributed algorithms.

CV from January 2017.

Uni-Finanzierung als Absurdes Theater (Der Standard)

An sieben Universitäten werden in Österreich Informatik-Studien angeboten, aber mehr als 50 Prozent der Studierenden wählen die TU Wien – über 1000 Studienanfänger jährlich. Der gute Ruf der TU Wien wird zum Fluch für das Studium, denn auf 52 habilitierte Professoren kommen fast 7000 Studierende; ein solches Verhältnis wäre bei anderen international führenden Universitäten undenkbar. […]
