Udo Trutschel

Udo Trutschel graduated with a Master degree in theoretical physics from the Institute for Solid State Physics and Theoretical Optics from Friedrich-Schiller-University (Germany). He received his Ph.D. in applied physics from the Physical Institute, Technical University Ilmenau (Germany). After leaving Germany in 1991, Dr. Trutschel worked for 18 months as research assistant at Tufts University, Boston in the Electro-Optics Technology Center. Afterwards he took a position as visiting Professor at the Electrical Engineering Department, Laval University Quebec for 3 months. Currently Dr. Trutschel holds a position as senior research scientist at Circadian Technologies. He has published over 50 scientific publications and currently holds 8 patents. His recent research interests include nonlinear system analysis and the application of numerical simulation and optimization methods to various area of scientific research. He is cofounder of the Institute for System Analysis and Applied Numeric (ISAAN) and serves currently as Director of the Instiute.


Martin Golz

Martin Golz received the Ph.D. degree in Physics in 1990 from Technical University Ilmenau, Germany. Since 1988, he has been working in the field of biosignal analysis at the Research Centre of Neurology and Psychiatry in the former East-Berlin. Since 1992, he has been a Professor for Signal Processing and Neuroinformatics at the Department of Computer Science, University of Applied Sciences Schmalkalden, Germany. Martin Golz has written about 50 publications on signal processing and pattern recognition in different areas of applications, like driver fatigue, sleep physiology, posturography, and electromagnetic surface waves. He has coedited a book on signal processing for information fusion. Due to his research on driver fatigue since 1996, he has succeeded several research projects with institutions and companies. Martin Golz is a Member of IEEE and of the German Society of Biomedical Engineering.





Sebastian Gerecke

Sebastian Gerecke studied computer science at the University of Technology in Clausthal-Zellerfeld, the University of Applied Science Schmalkalden and the Technical University Ilmenau. In 1998 he graduated with a Master Degree in Computer Science from the University of Applied Science Schmalkalden. For his Master thesis he received the "Adam-Opel-Award". He aquired the qualifications "Instructor of Computer Science", project and bussiness manager from the Chamber of Indutry and Commerce Thuringia (Germany) and the German Society of Project Management Cologne (Germany). Currently, he is working toward his Ph.D. in the field of intelligent optimization problems using a generalized constraint  theory. Sebastian Gerecke is the founder and CEO of the IT consulting and development company "ATURIS".
