Self Stabilizing Systems
Prof. Shlomi Dolev, Rita Altura Trust Chair, Computer Science Department at Ben-Gurion University of Negev
Date & Time: December 7, 2007 12:00
Venue: Conference Room, ā€˜Cā€™ Block, 01st floor, Kanwal Rekhi Building
The talk advocates the use of the well defined and provable self-stabilization property of a system, to achieve the goals of the self* paradigms, availability reliability serviceability, disaster recovery and autonomic computing. Several recent results starting from hardware concerns, through the operating system, and ending in the applications are integrated:
the self-stabilizing microprocessor [DH04,DH06],
with a self-stabilizing operating system [DY04,DY05,DY06,DY07],
the self-stabilizing file system [DK02],
self-stabilizing middleware [DS03a,DS03b,DSW02],
self-stabilization preserving compiler [DHS05] and
the self-stabilizing autonomic recoverer for applications [BDK03].
Speaker Profile:
Shlomi Dolev received his BSc degree in engineering and BA degree in computer science in 1984 and 1985, respectively, and his MSc and DSc degrees in computer science in 1990 and 1992, respectively, from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. He is the author of the book Self-Stabilization, published by the MIT Press in 2000, and is an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Computers and of the AIAA Journal of Aerospace Computing, Information, and Communication. He established the Computer Science Department at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and served as the first chair of this department. He is now a professor and holds the Rita Altura Trust Chair in Computer Sciences. His current research interests include distributed computing, distributed systems, communication networks, self-stabilization systems, cryptography, and optical computing.
