John A. Stankovic is a Professor in the Computer Science Department at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He received his PHD from Brown University in 1979. Prof. Stankovic co-directs the Spring Project on real-time systems and is the director of the Center for Autonomous Real-Time System. His current research interests include investigating various approaches to real-time scheduling, developing flexible, distributed, and fault tolerant, real-time operating systems, and developing and performing experimental studies on real-time databases.

Professor Stankovic is a Fellow of the IEEE, a Fellow of the ACM, and on the Computing Research Association Board of Directors. He has held visiting positions in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie-Mellon University, at INRIA in France, and Scuola Superiore S. Anna in Pisa, Italy. He received an Outstanding Scholar Award from the School of Engineering, University of Massachusetts. Professor Stankovic is an editor-in-chief for Real-Time Systems, associate editor for IEEE Transaction on Parallel and Distributed Systems, and was editor for IEEE Transactions on Computers. He is the series editor for a book series on real-time systems with the Kluwer Publishing Company. In the past he served as Chair of the IEEE technical committee on Real-Time Systems, and is currently on the International Advisory Board for the Journal of Computer Science and Informatics (Computer Society of India). He served as a IEEE Computer Society Distinguished Visitor, has given Distinguished Lectures at various Universities, and has been a Keynote Speaker at various conferences.
