- My short
story. I was
born in Warsaw, Poland, in 1951. Some time later
I received the M. Sc. (1973) and Ph. D (1976) degrees in electrical
engineering and Dr. Habilitus (1996) in Computer
Sciences from Warsaw University of Technology. Then, I became a Professor
of Computer Sciences (2011). Since 1976 I have been with the Institute of
Control and Computation Engineering, currently at a position of full
professor. From time to time, however, I did something else, e.g. had a
short adventure with ERA Minicomputer R&D Center, a position of
Software Engineering Consultant for PNEFAL Industrial Automation, was a
visiting researcher at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands, had a
part time position of Project Manager in Alerton
(building management systems), was a professor at Olsztyn High School of
Software Engineering and Management, served as an Advisor to the President
of Social Insurance Institution and was a member of the Council of The National Centre for Research and
Development, where I served as chairman of Strategic Research
Programs Committee. I was also a professor at Vistula University for more
than ten years. Currently, I serve as an expert in evaluating software
projects for public organizations and for the industry.
research interests include software engineering, real-time systems,
computer networks and trust management. I have
written 115 journal and conference papers and 21 books. Two of
the books were written in English and can be read by everybody. These are:
W. Halang, K. Sacha: Real-Time Systems, World
Scientific, 1992, and Sacha K. (ed.), Software Engineering
Techniques: Design for Quality, Springer, New York 2006. I am a member of
IEEE Computer Society. I have also been a member of the Program Committees
of several national and international conferences: International
Conference on Evaluation of Novel Approaches to Software Engineering ENASE, International Conference on Software and
Data Technologies ICSOFT, Central and Eastern European Software
Engineering Conference in Russia, International Conference on
Dependability of Computer Systems DepCoS, IFAC/IFIP Workshop on
Real-Time Programming, National Conference on Real Time Systems and others.
- Responsibilities. I give lectures on Real-Time
Systems and Software Engineering for students of the Faculty of
Electronics and Information Technology at Warsaw University of Technology.
Moreover, I supervise students projects and theses. I serve as chairmen of
the Research Committee of the Faculty.
- Hobbies. Years ago I used to train
athletics and dancing. Now I spend my leisure time practicing mountain
hiking and skiing.
