1.  Dr. Manuel Silva

Sunum Başlığı: Five Decades of Petri Nets, a Modeling Paradigm for Discrete Event Systems


Manuel Silva received the industrial chemical engineering degree from the University of Seville (Spain, 1974). Post-Graduate and Ph.D. degrees in control engineering from the Institut National Polytechnique (INP) de Grenoble (France, 1975 and 1978, respectively), he was at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), Laboratoire d’Automatique de Grenoble. In 1978, he started the Group of Systems Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Zaragoza (Spain), where is full professor since 1981. Founding Member of the Spanish Association of Robotics, his current research interests include modeling, validation, performance evaluation, and control and implementation of distributed concurrent systems using Petri Nets. In this framework, he is/was a member of the Steering Committees of the International Conference on Application and Theory of Petri Nets (ICATPN), the Workshops on Discrete Event Systems (WODES), and the IFAC International Conference on Analysis and Design of Hybrid Systems (ADHS).

Among his books, he has authored Las Redes de Petri en la Automática y la Informática (AC, 1985; also Thomson-AC, 2002), coauthored Practice of Petri Nets in Manufacturing (Chapman & Hall, 1993), and coedited and coauthored Control of Discrete-Event Systems: Automata and Petri-Net Perspectives (Springer, 2013). Editor of Técnica e Ingeniería en España (in Spanish; 9 volumes, some 6.000 pages till now), it is an historical, epistemological and sociological encyclopedia placing technology and engineering in a broad cultural framework.

Dr. Silva was distinguished with a medal from the city of Lille (France, 1996), and by the Association of Telecommunication Engineers of Aragón (2001). He received the Doctorate Honoris Causa by the University of Reims-Champagne-Ardennes (France, 2005), and is member of the Royal Academy of Engineering of Spain (2000), and of the Royal Academy of Exact, Physical, Chemical and Natural Sciences of Zaragoza (2014).
