Professor, Integrated PhD Researcher

Eduardo Tovar is the head of CISTER Research Center.

Eduardo Tovar received the Licentiate, MSc and PhD degrees in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Porto, Porto, Portugal, in 1990, 1995 and 1999, respectively. Currently he his Professor in the Computer Engineering Department at the School of Engineering (ISEP) of Polytechnic Institute of Porto (P.Porto), where he is also engaged in research on real-time distributed systems, wireless sensor networks, multiprocessor systems, cyber-physical systems and industrial communication systems. He heads the CISTER Labs, an internationally renowned research centre focusing on RTD in real-time and embedded computing systems. He is currently the Vice-chair of ACM SIGBED (ACM Special Interest Group on Embedded Computing Systems) and is member of the Executive Committee of the IEEE Technical Committee on Real-Time Systems (TC-RTS). Since 1991 he authored or co-authored more than 200 scientific and technical papers in the area of real-time and embedded computing systems, with emphasis on multiprocessor systems and distributed embedded systems. Eduardo Tovar has been consistently participating in top-rated scientific events as member of the Program Committee, as Program Chair or as General Chair. Notably he has been program chair/co-chair for ECRTS 2005, IEEE RTCSA 2010, IEEE RTAS 2013 or IEEE RTCSA 2016, all in the area of real-time computing systems. He has also been program chair/co-chair of other key scientific events in the area of architectures for computing systems and cyber-physical systems as is the case of ARCS 2014 or the ACM/IEEE ICCPS 2016 or in the area of industrial communications (IEEE WFCS 2014). He has been general chair/co-chair of various scientific events, including the IEEE/ACM CPSWeek 2018. He is currently deeply involved in the core team setting-up a Collaborative (industry-academic) Lab on Cyber-Physical Systems and Cyber-Security Systems.
