La 24 martie 2005, Sectia de Știința și Tehnologia Informației și Comisia "Forumul pentru Societatea Cunoașerii" din ACADEMIA ROMÂNĂ în colaborare cu Facultatea de Automatica si Calculatoare din UNIVERSITATEA "POLITEHNICA" BUCURESTI, au organizat în Sala de Consiliu a Academiei Române, conferinta domnului profesor TADAO MURATA - Univ. of Illinois at Chicago, cu tema: OVERVIEW AND RECENT TRENDS OF PETRI - NET RESEARCH

În prezenta a circa 30 specialisti din sistemul de cercetare academic, din Universitatea Bucuresti si din Universitatea Politehnica Bucuresti, profesorul TADAO MURATA a prezentat cu succes conferinta enuntata (detalii).

ABSTRACT: This talk consists of three parts: (1) Introduction, (2) Recent trends of Petri-net research, and (3) In-depth presentation of one or two of our recent research results. It is assumed that the audience has a little or no prior knowledge on Petri nets. First, in the introduction we plan to discuss basic concepts and methods of Petri nets using simple examples. Second, we review recent Petri-net applications and theory in the literature. Third, we plan to present our recent works on fast
performance evaluation by using fuzzy logic and Petri nets, and we illustrate how to compute possibility measures of events, and degrees of possibilities to satisfy given requirements, etc. Time permitting, we present application to moving-object database systems.

SPEAKER: TADAO MURATA received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Univ. of Ill. at Urbana-Champaign in 1964 and 1966, respectively. He is presently a UIC Distinguished Professor in the Dept. of Computer Science at the Univ. of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). He is the first recipient of the C. A. Petri Distinguished Technical Achievement Award, and the recipient of the 1991 IEEE Donald G. Fink Prize Award. He served as Editor for the IEEE Trans. of Software Eng., for which he received IEEE Computer Society's Meritorious Service Award. He served on the U.S. National Academy of Science/Computer Science and Technology Board. He served as the General Chairman for the 1987 Int. Workshop on Petri Nets and Performance Models held in Madison, and for the 1993 Int. Conf. on Application and Theory of Petri Nets held in Chicago. He is a Life Fellow of IEEE, and a Fellow of IEICE.
