Dr. rer. nat. Armin Wolf (Dipl. Inform.)

Short Curriculum Vitae

I was born in Heidelberg. I grew up in its lovely surounding area called Baden. After my school times, finally at Carl-Bosch-Schule Heidelberg I moved to Karlsruhe where I studied computer science and mathematics at the University of Karlsruhe. I received my Diploma in computer science in 1991. Since 1992 I am living in Berlin. The first time I was working at the Technical University Berlin. Since 1994 I im working at Fraunhofer FIRST (formerly GMD FIRST). In the first time I was involved in several research projects concering constraint-based planning, configuration, scheduling and resource management.

In July 1999,I finished my doctoral disseration (summa cum laude) on "Adaptation of Constraint Handling Rule (CHR) Derivations in Dynamic Environments". This doctoral thesis was arwarded to be the "Beste Dissertation der GMD 1999".

A more detailed description of my current professional interests and topics is presented here (in german). A demonstrator for constraint-based planning is DOTPlan - The Online Participant Booking and Planning System.
