This year professor Hans Hansson has celebrated his 60. birthday. Being the “founding father” of our research environment MRTC (now called Embedded Systems) with this symposium in his honor we plan to highlight some of his career achievements. For this symposium, we have invited persons that have worked or collaborated with Hans over the years. The planned talks are going to include both a (backward looking) history perspective and some current hot topics (forward looking).
