Another student graduates with highest honours

17, Nov, 2017

Humberto Carvalho, advised by CISTER researchers Geoffrey Nelissen and Eduardo Tovar, successfully defended his Master thesis with a perfect grade of 20 (on a scale of 20).

Humberto’s thesis was on the topic of "Scheduling High Criticality Real-Time Systems". Particularly, he focused on issues faced by the avionics industry. He proposed a new solution for a relevant problem in systems with stringent isolation requirements between applications, as is the case in aircrafts. The solution was to generate a cyclic executive schedule that optimizes the number of context switches between avionic partitions.

We wish the best to Humberto for his future career.
