Dr. Pieter J. Mosterman
Pieter J. Mosterman, Ph.D. is Senior Research Scientist at
Natick, Massachusetts, USA where he works on core
simulation and is Adjunct Professor at the School of
Computer Science at McGill University in Montreal, Canada.
Pieter is Associate Editor of Applied Intelligence: The International Journal of Artificial Intelligence, Neural Networks, and Complex Problem-Solving Technologies, International Journal of Critical Computer-Based Systems, and International Journal of Control and Automation. He is also on the Advisory Board for the Modeling, Simulation & Analysis Program at the Infrastructure and Geophysical Division, Science and Technology Directorate of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Previously, he was Research Associate at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. His primary research interests are in Computer Automated Multiparadigm Modeling (CAMPaM) with principal applications in design automation, training systems, and fault detection, isolation, and reconfiguration. He designed the Electronics Laboratory Simulator, nominated for The Computerworld Smithsonian Award by Microsoft Corporation in 1994. He received The Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SCS) Distinguished Service Award in 2009.
Pieter is the Editor of the CRC Press book series on “Computational Analysis, Synthesis, and Design of Dynamic Systems”, coedited Model-Based Design for Embedded Systems (Computational Analysis, Synthesis, and Design of Dynamic Systems) and Real-time Simulation Technologies, Principles, Methodologies, and Applications, and coauthored A Theory of Discontinuities in Physical System Models, An Introduction to Multi-Paradigm Modeling and Simulation, A Combined Qualitative/Quantitative Approach for Fault Isolation in Continuous Dynamic Systems, Some Guidelines for Stiff Model Implementation with the use of Discontinuities, and A Java Implementation of an Environment for Hybrid Modeling and Simulation of Physical Systems. He also authored HyBrSim A Modeling and Simulation Environment for Hybrid Bond Graphs which he was awarded the IMechE Donald Julius Groen Prize for in 2003. Read the full list of his publications!
Pieter served as Editor-in-Chief of SIMULATION: Transactions of SCS for the Methodology section, Guest Editor of special issues of SIMULATION, ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation, and IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology (TCST) on the topic of CAMPaM, and as Associate Editor of TCST. Since 2004 he has organized the annual International Bellairs CAMPaM Workshop. From 2007 through 2009 he co-organized the Model-Based Design for Embedded Systems track at the Design Automation and Test in Europe conference and in 2009 he was General Chair of a 2009 workshop on Designing for Embedded Parallel Computing Platforms: Architectures, Design Tools, and Applications. He co-organized the Computational Modeling and Simulation of Embedded Systems track at the 2007 Summer Computer Simulation Conference, the International Conference on High Level Simulation Languages and Applications in 2007, and the 14th International Workshop on Principles of Diagnosis in 2003.
His patents include: Hierarchical references or links in modeling environments, Transparent subsystem links, Distributed model compilation, Automated approach to resolving artificial algebraic loops, Qualitative diagnosis system and method, Partitioning a model in modeling environments, Multi-domain unified debugger, Dynamic generation of formatted user interfaces in software environments, and Modeling delay using a discrete event execution modeling environment.
Pieter earned his Ph.D. (1997) in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee, USA with the dissertation Hybrid Dynamic Systems: A hybrid bond graph modeling paradigm and its application in diagnosis, his M.Sc. (1991) in Electrical Engineering from the University of Twente, The Netherlands, and his Bachelor of Science (1987) in Electrical Engineering from the University of Twente, The Netherlands.
