Open Ph.D. Position on the
"Schedulability Analysis of Dynamic Scheduling Algorithms for Complex Cyber-Physical Systems"

Description of the project

Scheduling and resource management policies play a fundamental role in the performance and quality-of-service of a system since they determine the time at which a task (or a process) starts, accesses the resources, and completes. Cyber-physical systems (CPS), cloud computing, smart manufacturing, and product-line planning are some of the application areas of resource management policies with an increasing need to apply multi-objective, adaptive, and even smart scheduling algorithms in order to provide guaranteed service and more efficient use of resources.

The aim of this Ph.D. project is to develope analysis techniques and tools to provide a quantitavie understanding about the system’s behavior under the use of such scheduling algorithms. This will be done by developing fast, accurate, and smart solutions to search the space of possible system outputs under the given scheduling (or decision-making) algorithm.

Working at TU Delft

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) is known worldwide for its high academic quality and the social relevance of its research programs. The faculty’s excellent facilities accentuate its international position in teaching and research. Within this interdisciplinary and international setting the faculty employs more than 1100 employees, including about 400 graduate students and 4000 undergraduate students. Together they work on a broad range of technical innovations in the fields of sustainable energy, telecommunications, microelectronics, embedded systems, computer and software engineering, artificial intelligence, interactive multimedia and applied mathematics.

Within the faculty, the Department of Software Technology (ST) comprises the EEMCS Faculty research groups working on core computer science and engineering topics. The department is responsible for a large part of the curriculum of the BSc and MSc programs in Computer Science as well as the MSc program in Embedded Systems. The department’s research mission is to perform excellent research at an internationally-recognized level in the design, construction and analysis of complex, concurrent and cooperative computer and information systems. Inspiration for the research topics is derived largely from technical ICT problems in industry and society.

The Embedded and Networked Systems group is a section in the Software Technology Department. The group’s research concerns the software side of embedded systems, which are characterized by their limited visibility, autonomous operation, real-time activities and constrained resources. The group focuses on designing and understanding, and quantifying the fundamental properties of real-world cyber-physical and IoT applications.

Located in a charming college town, TU Delft is the largest and oldest public technological university in the Netherlands. The university is regularly ranked among the most highly-rated worldwide for engineering and technology.
