Prof. Dr.-Ing. Andreas Schrader (Germany)
|Position||Academic Director of the ISNM
Professor for Media Technology and Communication Networks
|Field||Prof. Schrader currently teaches the following courses:
Multimedia Systems, Information Theory and Data Compression, Ubiquitous Computing, Media Streaming, Game Design, Digital Libraries, Human Computer Interaction, Digital Film and Video Development and Interactive Digital Television.
|Education||Prof. Schrader studied electrical engineering at the University of Siegen, Germany (1992), where he focused on audio and video processing. In his PhD thesis (1998, summa cum laude) at the computer science department in Siegen he developed evolutionary algorithms for color quantization and image compression.|
|Bio||Prof. Schrader was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1964.
Very early in his career, he focussed on information processing and computer graphics.
In his diploma thesis he developed new algorithms for image compression.
From 1992 to 1998 he was scientific employee at the programming languages institute
of the computer science department in Siegen, where he developed new hybrid
evolutionary algorithms for various optimization problems.
In 1998 he joined the C & C Research Laboratories of NEC Europe Ltd. in Heidelberg as a Research Staff Member. During that time, he developed a Service Platform for Internet Telephony. From 1999 to 2003 he worked as a Senior Researcher at NEC and was responsible for the development of a Service Platform for Internet Telephony, Quality-of-Service architectures, adaptive Multimedia Streaming technologies, the management of UMTS field trials with industrial and academic partners as well as for the supervision of several master and PhD students.
Prof. Schrader is member of GI and ACM and program committee member of several international conferences (including ACM Multimedia, ASW/ASWN, QoSIP, and ITRE).
He acts as a reviewer for several international conferences and journals (e.g. IEEE Communication Magazin, Computer Networks Journal) and has published about 50 scientific papers at international conferences, workshops and journals. He wrote a book about Evolutionary Algorithms and Color Quantization (Berlin, 1999) and filed international patents for adaptive media streaming and the future Internet.
Prof. Schrader held lectures about Multimedia and Networks at the University of Karlsruhe (2001-2003) and joined the ISNM in October 2003.
From June 2007 until December 2011 he acted as the Academic Director.
Since December 2010 he also acted as the Managing Director.
Since January 2010 Prof. Schrader is with the Institute of Telematics at the University of Luebeck and is head of the Ambient Computing Working Group..
