Other Activities

This page lists some things I am involved in addition to the usual research work and teaching related things.


In October, 2007 I started the FM-LaTeX project. The goal of this project is to have a central repository where packages are shared and that is publicly available to anyone in the world, not just faculty employees. It is also is a place where new features or new packages can be developed. This allows for using the supported packages in collaborative work with members of other universities. As far as I am aware, the project has been abandoned.

See the FM-LaTeX website for more information.

Institute for Programming research and Algorithmics (IPA)

From December 2007 until Septeber 2011 I have been a member of the IPA Ph.D. Council. Amongst other things, this involves keeping in touch with the Ph.D.s within IPA, acting as a voice for them and organising Open Session on IPA days.

Besides the council I maintained and moderated the IPA LinkedIn group and IPA informal discussion group/forum/list.
