Graduate of the Ecole Normale Supérieure, “agrégé” in mathematics (highest teaching level in France, obtained through an examination), doctor and empowered to supervise research in Computer Science, Daniel Krob, 53 years old, takes the head of the Scientific & Technological Board of the IRT SystemX. He is also a computer science Professor of the Ecole Polytechnique and President of the Center of Excellence In Architecture, Management and Economics of Systems (CESAMES –Centre d’Excellence Sur l’Architecture, le Management et l’Economie des Systèmes). Expert of international standing in many scientific fields, he is the author of over a hundred scientific publications and communications and 4 books. He has filed 3 patents in fundamental computer science, algebraic and enumerative combinatorics, mobile telecommunications algorithmic and systems engineering. He also piloted, from 2003 to 2014, the Dassault Aviation – DCNS – DGA – Thales “Complex Systems Engineering” Chair of the Ecole Polytechnique and has specialized himself in the field of architecture, modeling and design methods of complex systems. In February 2014, he notably became an INCOSE Fellow (International Council on Systems Engineering) – recognition awarded to researchers or professionals whose contribution to the theory or practice of complex systems engineering is particularly significant at the worldwide level. He is the only French person to be distinguished as such, and shares this recognition with only 66 experts the world over.
