Dear colleagues,

We cordially invite you to participate in our next Informatics Europe 
webinar on 23 February (Wednesday):

Scientific Webinar Series
Title: Programming Distributed Decentralized Applications *
Date: 23 February 2022, 5pm CET
Speaker: Prof. Mira Mezini, Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany

Today’s applications - ranging from mobile digital services (instant
messengers, multiplayer games, etc.), collaborative workflows (Google 
Docs, Figma,
Trello, etc.), real-time businesses (cross-organizational workflows, 
condition monitoring, etc.), autonomous vehicle services, production 4.0 
and more - are very different from traditional ones: They run on 
globally distributed
computing infrastructures, consistently interact with the outside world 
and are data-
driven. In this talk, I will argue that to cope with challenges posed by 
these new
computing realities we need programming models and technologies that 
offer safety
and security properties by-design. More specifically, I will talk about 
integrated solutions that offer formally-proven consistency guarantees 
box” in a decentralized and privacy-preserving manner and will present 
the ideas in
the context of REScala (www.rescala-lang.com) - a library-based Scala 

About the speaker:
Mira Mezini is full professor of Computer Science at Technical
University of Darmstadt and leads the Software Technology Lab. After her 
PhD in
Computer Science at the University of Siegen in Germany, she spent two 
years as a
visiting assistant professor at Northeastern University in Boston (USA), 
before joining
TU Darmstadt in 2000. She is member of the board of the National 
Research Center
for Applied Cyber Security ATHENE and spokesperson of the Hessian Center for
Artificial Intelligence.
Mira has published more than 200 peer-reviewed papers, many of the them 
in the
most prestigious venues in programming languages and software 
engineering. She
is elected member of the German Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech)
and has received various research awards, including IBM Eclipse Innovation
Awards, a Google Research Award, the German IT Security Award, and an
Advanced Grant of the European Research Council (ERC).

We look forward to meeting you at this webinar!

Yours sincerely,
