When I was a university lecturer I taught courses on Computer Architecture, Specification Methods using VDM at the Royal Institute of Technology, and Programming Languages Semantics and Implementations, and Theory of Computation at Uppsala university:


  • Program Theory, for DVL3 in computer science major, Uppsala university, 1983-1984.

  • Computers for Real-time Systems, for E3 in electrical engineering, Royal Institute of Technology, 1983-1984.

  • Software Development and Specification Methods, for E4 in computer science major, Royal Institute of Technology, 1982-1983, 1983-1984.

  • Applicative Programming Techniques, graduate course in computer systems, Royal Institute of Technology, 1982-1983.

Later after joining SICS I was responsible for two courses on logic programming systems for the computer science and engineering at the Royal Institute of Technology. The first course is on Prolog including programming techniques and implementations, held from 1986 until 1993. The second course on Concurrent Logic Programming, held every second year 1988 until 1994.

I held two Ph.D. courses, one on Scalable Shared Memory Architectures, and on Distributed Algorithms. The latter is being held again in Fall 1997 at the department of Teleinformatics, the Royal Institute of Technology (see http://www.it.kth.se/edu/Ph.D/courses.html)

13. Software tools and prototypes

13.1.Oz-2


The programming system Oz-2 has been developed together with the team of Prof. Gert Smolka at DFKI, Germany. Oz-2 is a multiparadigm programming language that is based on the concepts of concurrent constrain programming. The system has novel features for supporting distributed applications, such as mobile objects and replicable code over the Inter-net. I have participated in the design of the language, and in particular in the design of the distribution architecture of the system.

13.2.Agent Kernel Language


The first complete concurrent constraint language existing, Andorra Kernel Language AKL has been also developed in my lab. while being lab. leader at SICS. Together with my former Ph.D. student Sverker Janson we designed the concepts of AKL. AKL, and concurrent constraint programming is an active research topic by many researchers world-wide. The AKL system has been implemented fully. It served as a predecessor for the very successful multiparadigm programming language and systems Oz-1, and Oz-2.

13.3.SICStus Prolog


During the few years as a leader of the logic programming lab (LPSLAB), Members of LPSLAB developed the high quality Prolog system known as SICStus Prolog. This system is now the most spread and used Prolog system world-wide for educational and research purposes on UNIX workstations PC’s. I have been personally involved in several design decisions of the system. I also designed the object-oriented subsystem of SICStus known as SICStus Objects. This is being used in a large number of projects including: a large scale knowledge based system for agriculture products currently operational in Egypt, tools for configuring telephone exchanges, and a platform for agent-based market space (agent supported electronic commerce).

13.4.Parallel Prolog Systems


Members of LPSLAB developed together with researchers from Argonne National lab., USA and researchers from Bristol university the Aurora system which is the first full implementation of Prolog running on shared memory multiprocessors. I was involved in the design and supervised work on this system.

Also members of LPSLAB designed and implemented the parallel Prolog system MUSE, now an integrated part of SICStus Prolog. This system exploits or-parallelism and runs on shared memory multiprocessors.


13.5.DDM-lite


DDM-lite, a general purpose multiprocessor prototype based on the DDM concept has been built at SICS. I am the co-inventor of DDM, as well as the concept of Cache-Only Memory Architecture (COMA) which is a hot topic of research currently within the computer architecture research community. Recently (1993) the first commercial COMA machine has appeared in the market by Kandel Square Research INC. This machine scales up to 1080 processors. Currently SUN Microsystems at PALO ALTO California, is building a large scale server based on the COMA concept. The chief architect is my former Ph.D. student Erik Hagersten.

14.My role as a research director of SICS


Since 1995 I became the research director of the Swedish Institute of Computer Science. My main duty is to structure and supervise the research activities of the institute and to support the various research groups scientifically. The institute was restructured into smaller research groups with the main focus on developing technologies and methodologies needed for the development of distributed and interactive systems. The main technical areas of SICS today are:

  • Computer and Network Architectures.

  • Software Technologies and Methods.

  • Human-System Interaction.

For more detailed information please consult the following documents which I mainly worked out together with the various group leader:


  1. SICS, Strategic Research Programme, 1995.

  2. SICS, Strategic Research Programme, 1997-1999.

SICS is currently a very successful research institute with 70% industrial funding, including support from EU, USA and Japan.

15.Research publications


In the following list, I include only major refereed research publications. This section is divided into publications in refereed scientific journals and book chapters, and refereed publications in international conferences. No workshop publications are included.

A division by subject is given in the associated document “Summary of Scientific and Pedagogical Accomplishments”.
