Invited Keynote Speakers

  Stefan Potyra (Elektrobit Automotive GmbH, Erlangen, Germany)

  "Safety-related automotive functions on a secure high-performance platform"

Bio: Stefan Potyra is the Overall Architect for the Adaptive AUTOSAR based platform for high-performance ECUs at Elektrobit Automotive GmbH. He coordinates the development on a technical level with a focus on system functions. Dr. Potyra received a diploma in computer science from the Friedrich-Alexander-University
Erlangen-Nuremberg in 2007. After that, he started a doctorate at the same university at the Chair of computer architecture. In that course he researched hardware software co-simulation in the context of the open source virtual machine FAUmachine. He received his PhD in 2013. In 2011 he joined Elektrobit Automotive GmbH in the operating system development team. In that position he took part of the development of the EB tresos Safety OS, one of the first ASIL-D certified automotive operating systems in the market. In 2017 he shifted his focus on the Adaptive AUTOSAR based platform for high-performance ECUs. Dr. Potyra is the author of several scientific publications in the context fault tolerance and hardware-software co-design.


  Peter Priller (AVL List GmbH, Graz, Austria)

 "Top 5 reasons why IoT is key for Smart Mobility, and top 5 reasons why we might fail"

Bio: Peter Priller is Technology Scout for Embedded Systems in AVL ITS Global Research & Technology. After graduating in electrical engineering at Graz University of Technology, he worked in ASIC development at an RFID start-up. Since then, he is with AVL Graz in various positions from software development to system architecture and real-time systems to software project management.
