Holger Kienle

Welcome to the home page of Dr. Holger Kienle. I am a computer scientist who does – among other things – research in reverse engineering of software systems. I have a Ph.D. from the University of Victoria, Canada, a Diplom-Informatiker degree from the University of Stuttgart, Germany, and a M.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, USA. I have been working for Prof. Urs Hölzle (UC Santa Barbara, now Google), Profs. Plödereder (University of Stuttgart, Germany) and Koschke (University of Stuttgart, now University of Bremen, Germany), and Prof. Müller (University of Victoria, Canada). Until recently I have been a part-time researcher with PROGRESS at Mälardalen University, Sweden working on the migration of embedded systems to component-based architectures.

I have decided to stop reviewing for "purely" commerical publishers that don't do open access by default, but I don't want to be too dogmatic at this point and may make exceptions from this rule. More here. In particular, I have added my name to
