About the Authors

Amitava Gupta is a professor in the Department of Power Engineering at Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India. A graduate in electrical engineering from Jadavpur University, Professor Gupta earned his MTech from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur and his PhD from Jadavpur University. He has served as an engineer in the Control and Instrumentation Division of the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd. and as a member of the High-Performance Computing Group of the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing, Bangalore, before switching to academics. He also served as a Gastwissenscaftler (visiting scientist) at Technische UniversitätMunchen, Germany, and as a German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) Gastdozent (visiting professor) at the University of Rostock, Germany and at Technische UniversitätMunchen. His research interests include distributed simulation, distributed real-time systems, networked control systems, and control of nuclear reactors.

Anil Kumar Chandra graduated with a degree in electrical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. He joined the Bhabha Atomic Research Center, Mumbai, and finally retired as a distinguished scientist and executive director (research and development) of the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd., Mumbai. He worked on modernization of control rooms and associated instrumentation for forthcoming Indian nuclear power plants. He structured the required systems as distributed architectures with considerable standardization of hardware, software, and human-computer interaction. He also worked on obsolescence management of instrumentation in the older power plants. He contributed to devising the safety guide for the review of digital instrumentation and control. He is a senior life member of the Computer Society of India and a life member of the Indian Nuclear Society.

Peter Luksch is the chair of distributed high performance computing at th
