This invitation which has been initiated by Professor Jürgen Teich, Head of Department of Computer Science, offers an opportunity to continue the collaboration with specialist colleagues in Germany that was brought about by the Research Award of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in 2010. The successful cooperation will now be intensified, when Prof. Salcic will return to the Chair of Hardware-Software Co-Design for another three months for researching new ideas, such as improvement of multi-core architecture.

Together with FAU scientists he is working on the development of program tools for embedded systems. These tools are to be further developed and integrated into a chain of tools. Specifically, this means software should always fulfill several objectives, i.e. save power, but at the same time ensure a high rate of program execution. Together with the Chair of Computer Science 12 (Hardware-Software-Co-Design) he will be working on methods of automatic design space exploration of such multi-criteria optimization of programs.

Since 1994 Dr. Zoran Salcic has been Professor of Computer Systems Engineering at University of Auckland. He received his Bachelor and Master in Electrical Engineering at the University of Sarajevo, where he also received his doctorate in 1976.
