Information
From sensor networks to space station environments and from multi-core chips to computational grids; the requirements are all very different but the knowledge and skills required to make these systems work are remarkably similar. Each is an asynchronous, concurrent system requiring coordination and synchronisation, but operating on very different timescales and with different computational requirements. This programme addresses both industrial and society-wide problems related to infrastructures, with an emphasis on concurrency engineering, which is a non-trivial discipline. The focus on concurrency and foundation in extensive research expertise in each of these domains is what makes the University of Amsterdam's (UvA) research-based programme truly unique.
