After almost six years at the ITEA helm, Paul M. Mehring (left) stepped down as Chairman of the ITEA Board at the ITEA Symposium in Helsinki (October 13-14, 2005) and handed over the Chairmanship to Rudolf Haggenmüller.
The ITEA organisation certainly regrets to see Paul leaving. Through his enormous drive, commitment and energy, he has raised the profile of ITEA to that of the premium pan-European programme for software-intensive systems and is leaving the organisation in perfect shape for the next step: ITEA 2.
ITEA welcomes Rudolf Haggenmüller as the new Chairman.
Rudolf is professor Informatics and Mathematics at Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich and managing director of FAST GmbH. Fast is a Munich based company providing IT services which include eBusiness, Consulting and Knowledge Management for Media Design and Software Engineering. Fast GmbH has about 80 employees from all over the world and combines long years of professional experience with current scientific knowledge.
