In Memoriam

José Rufino (1958-2018)

José Rufino is a highly influential member of the Portuguese Embedded Real-Time Systems research community. His work set the grounds for many others researching on dependable real-time communication and safety-critical real-time software, and he produced a considerable body of work in collaboration with the European Space Agency.

He passed away this last summer, on the 29th of July, a shocking news that took us all by surprise.

Jose Rufino, a professor at University of Lisbon, had frequent collaborations with CISTER and visited us for the last time in September of 2017 to participate in our 20th anniversary celebrations. Whoever came across Rufino will remember his acute critical eye in a somewhat shy and extremely kind character. Genuinely a good person. So long Rufino!
