Brief Bio
Daniel Menasce is a University Professor of Computer Science at George Mason University, VA, USA, where he was Senior Associate Dean of its Volgenau School of Engineering for seven years. He received a PhD in Computer Science in 1978 from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). Menasce is a Fellow of the IEEE and of the ACM, a recipient of the 2017 Outstanding Faculty Award from the Commonwealth of Virginia, the recipient of the 2001 lifetime A.A. Michelson Award from the Computer Measurement Group, as well as the recipient of several outstanding research and outstanding teaching awards. Menasce authored over 265 papers and five books published by Prentice Hall. His research interests include self-managed systems, analytic performance modeling of computer systems, security performance tradeoffs, and software performance engineering.


Abstract
Modern computer information systems are highly complex, networked, have numerous configuration knobs, and operate in environments that are highly dynamic and evolving. Therefore, one cannot expect that configurations established at design-time will meet QoS and other non-functional goals at run-time. For that reason, the design of complex systems needs to incorporate controllers for adapting the system at run time. In this talk I will describe the four properties of self-managed systems: self-configuring, self-optimizing, self-healing, and self-protecting. I will also describe how these properties are enforced by controllers I designed for a variety of domains including cloud computing, fog/cloud computing, internet datacenters, distributed software systems, and database systems.
