May 30: Giovane Moura

Topic: The DNS infrastructure

Giovane Moura is a Data scientist with SIDN Labs, working on security & performance research projects. Prior to SIDN, he worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Delft University of Technology, in The Netherlands. He obtained my Ph.D. degree with Prof. Aiko Pras at the University of Twente, with focus on both active and passive Internet measurements. His research interests are Internet Measurements, DNS (measurements, performance, anycast, security), and Internet security.

May 31: Peer Stritzinger

Topic: Running the Erlang VM directly on the hardware for building distributed embedded systems applications

Peer ported Erlang to Hard-Realtime Operationg system RTEMS ( He developed the Hydraprog automotive control unit flashing device which has been used successfully all over the world for over a decade. Since 2007 the firmware of the device is written mainly in Erlang – including protocol stacks for all existing automotive protocols. Currently developing industrial transport system controller with Erlang in a small embedded system. Initially mastered in Physics at the Technical University Munich, Peer has broad experience ranging from low level device drivers to functional languages in industrial and automotive applications. He has been working self employed as a developer since 1987. He did consulting work in applied cryptography and protocol design and implementation. Peer is currently living and working in the nice countryside west of Munich, Bavaria.

June 1: Chantal Poncin

Topic: Volition

“Volition or will is the cognitive process by which an individual decides on and commits to a particular course of action.” [Wikipedia”

We all know the temptations to not start or continue a task, or waiting until the last moment before the deadline. In this little workshop we will talk about such temptations and strategies how to handle them.
