Activities and Research Interests

From 1969-1989 research in Logic and Complexity Theory. A pioneer of applying logical methods in computer science. Co-Founder of the European Association for Computer Science Logic and first EACSL President 1992|1997.

Since 1990 research in Software Technology, pioneering the development and the industrial applications of the Abstract State Machines Method for controllable construction and maintenance of hardware/software systems| with a focus on rigorously relating requirements capture by high-level models to detailed design and their analysis (using both mathematical verification and experimental validation).

(Co-)Author of two monographies in logic, three monographies in computer science, two textbooks and of numerous research papers in logic (1969- 1989) and computer science (since 1990); editor of 25 books and special journal issues and organizer of over 30 international conferences, workshops, schools in logic (1969-1989) and computer science (since 1990). Co-Founder of three series of international meetings: CSL Computer Science Logic, the annual conference of the European Association for Computer Science Logic (EACSL), started in 1987. ASM, the annual workshop on Abstract State Machines, started in 1994 and merged into ABZ in 2008. ABZ (ASMs, B, Z) Conference, started in 2008.
