Univ.-Prof. Dr. Georg Moser

Portrait Georg Moser

Georg Moser is a Full Professor of Theoretical Computer Science at the University of Innsbruck since February 2020. He studied Computer Science and Logic at the Vienna University of Technology and the University of Leeds, respectively. Prior to his appointment to full professor, he has been an associate professor at the University of Innsbruck, heading a reserach group on computation with bounded resources. His research interests centre around logic and program analysis. For the latter, a recent focus of his work is on probabilistic programming and Quantum computation. He has lead a number of national and international research consortia. He has acted as steering committee chair and member of international conference series and similar research consortia and continues to do so. Moreover, he has been chair of the IFIP Working Group 1.6. His expertise is frequently sought as a program committee member of most prominent conferences such as FSCD, LICS, etc. Further, he has frequently provided editorial services.

Univ.-Prof. Jan Beutel, PhD

Portrait Jan Beutel

Jan Beutel is a Full Professor of Computer Engineering at the University of Innsbruck since September 2020. He studied Electrical Engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich and at the Berkeley Wireless Research Center. At ETH Zurich he has been heading a research group on networked embedded systems. In his research he has pioneered the use of in-situ wireless sensors for long-lived environmental monitoring and natural hazard mitigation applications, especially in high-mountain and polar areas leading to many highly cited publications. He has been involved in leadership in large research clusters such as NCCR-MICS, CCES, and the Swiss permafrost monitoring network PERMOS. On an international level is expertise is frequently sought as a program committee and steering board member of the most prominent conferences such as EWSN, SenSys, IPSN, DCOSS, DATE and EMSOFT. He is associate editor of Copernicus Earth System Science Data and Springer Natural Hazards.
