Martin Wirsing (born 24 December 1948 in Bayreuth) is a German computer scientist, and Professor at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Germany.

Biography[edit]

Wirsing[1] studied Mathematics at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU) and at Université Paris 7, obtaining the Diplom in Mathematics from LMU and the Mâitrise-ès-Sciences Mathématiques at the Université Paris 7. Supervised by Kurt Schütte, he received his PhD from LMU in 1976, with a thesis on a topic in mathematical logic (Das Entscheidungsproblem der Prädikatenlogik mit Identität und Funktionszeichen). In 1975-1983 he was a research assistant at the chair of F.L. Bauer at Technical University of Munich where in 1984 he completed his Habilitation in Informatics. In 1985 Wirsing became full professor and Chair of Informatics at the University of Passau and in 1992 he returned to LMU as the Chair of Programming and Software Engineering.[2] Several years he served as Dean, Head of Department and Vice President of the Senat of LMU. Since 2010 he is Vice President for Teaching and Studies of LMU. In July 2016, he was awarded a Degree of Doctor of Science (Honoris Causa) by Royal Holloway, University of London.[3][4]

His research interests comprise software engineering and its formal foundations, autonomous self-aware systems, and digitisation of universities. In 2006-2015 he was coordinating the European IP projects SENSORIA[5] (2006-2010) on software engineering for service-oriented systems and ASCENS[6] (2010-2015) on engineering collective autonomic systems. In 2007-2010 Martin Wirsing was chairman of the Scientific Board of INRIA; currently, he is a member of the scientific committees of the University of Bordeaux[7], IMDEA Software Institute[8], and the Institut Mines-Télécom[9]. He is a member of the editorial board of several scientific journals and book series including Theoretical Computer Science (journal), International Journal of Software and Informatics, and Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science.
