Manuel Wimmer is a senior researcher in the Business Informatics Group (BIG) at the Vienna University of Technology, Austria and an August-Wilhelm Scheer Visiting Professor in the Institute of Automation and Information Systems (AIS) at Technische Universität München, Germany. He received his Ms and PhD degrees in business informatics from the Vienna University of Technology in 2005 and 2008, respectively. He is one of the prize winners of the Award of Excellence 2008 assigned by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research for his PhD thesis. In 2014, he received his Habilitation (venia docendi) in Informatics from the Vienna University of Technology.
In 2015 he was guest professor in the Software Engineering Research Group at the Philipps-University Marburg, Germany. In 2011/2012 he was on leave as research associate at the University of Málaga (working with Prof. Antonio Vallecillo). He was funded by an Erwin Schrödinger scholarship granted by the Austrian FWF (Fonds zur Förderung der Wissenschaftlichen Forschung).
He is/was involved in several national and international projects dealing with the foundations and application of model engineering techniques for domains such as tool interoperability, legacy modeling tool modernization, model versioning and evolution, software reverse engineering and migration, Web engineering including social Web and semantic Web, and Cloud computing. More information on these projects can be found here.
Currently, he is leading the module on the model-driven engineering of adaptable production systems in the Christian Doppler Laboratory Software Engineering Integration for Flexible Automation Systems (CDL-Flex). In this context, he is working on open source solutions for supporting and integrating different systems modeling language standards such as SysML and AutomationML as well as domain-specific modelling languages. He is also a founding member of the EU COST Action Multi-Paradigm Modeling for Cyber-Physical Systems (MPM4CPS) and the representative of TU Wien within the AutomationML society. Furthermore, he is participating in the NFR4MDD project, a multi-national empirical study on the integration status of Non-Functional Requirements (NFR) in Model-Driven Development (MDD) practices.
He is coauthor of the book Model-driven Software Engineering in Practice (Morgan & Claypool, 2012).
