Ivica Crnkovic is a professor of industrial software engineering at Mäardalen University where he is the administrative leader of the software engineering division and the scientific leader of the industrial software engineering research. His research interests include component-based software engineering, software architecture, software configuration management, software development environments and tools, and software engineering in general.
Professor Crnkovic is the author of more than 100 refereed articles and papers on software engineering topics and a co-author and co-editor of two books: “Building reliable component-based Systems” and “Implementing and integrating Product Data Management and Software Configuration Management”. He has co-organized several conferences and workshops related to software engineering (such as CBSE symposium, ESEC/FSE conference, Euromicro SEAA conference), and participated in Program Committees of software configuration management symposia and workshops. His teaching activities cover courses in the area of Software Engineering undergraduate and graduate courses. From 1985 to 1998, Ivica Crnkovic worked at ABB, Sweden, where he was responsible for software development environments and tools. He was a project leader and manager of a group developing software configuration management systems and other software development environment tools and methods for distributed development and maintenance of real-time systems. From 1980 to 1984, he worked for the Koncar company in Zagreb, Croatia. Professor Crnkovic received an M.Sc. in electrical engineering in 1979, an M.Sc. in theoretical physics in 1984, and a Ph.D. in computer science in 1991, all from the University of Zagreb, Croatia.
