Dr. Klaus Pohl, RWTH Aachen
Klaus Pohl is Akademischer Rat and leader of the requirements engineering and process centered system development group at the Information Systems department of Prof. Dr. M. Jarke at the Technical University of Aachen. He received a masters degree in Informatics from the FH Karlsruhe (1988), a masters degree in Information Science from the Universität Konstanz (1990), and the PhD in computer science from RWTH Aachen in 1995.
Klaus Pohl has extensive research and teaching experience in requirements and software engineering. His current main research interest is in supporting (information) systems development processes, particular cooperative requirements engineering, requirements traceability, process integrated engineering environments, and flexible method support. He was a workgroup leader within the ESPRIT BRA NATURE, is vice chair of the requirements engineering group of the Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI), member of the IFIP requirements engineering working group 2.9 and member of the RENOIR network of excellence. He has served on serveral programm committees (e.g. IEEE Requirements Engineering Symposium, Confernce on Advance Information System Engineering, WITS) and is author of a book on process centered requirements engineering and (co-)author of more than 30 referred papers on requirements engineering and software engineering.
