Gordon Gillerman
Chief, Standards Services Division, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

Gordon Gillerman is the Chief of the Standards Services Division in Technology Services at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).  Gordon has extensive experience in coordinating standards policy and development across a wide range of sectors critical to the US including homeland security, safety, health and protection of the environment.

Gordon has been the NIST lead in designing and implementing conformity assessment programs as well as assisting in the development of performance standards to meet other federal agency and industry needs and fulfill NIST's role in coordinating standards and conformity assessment in the US. Gordon is the Public Sector Co-Chair of the American National Standards Institute's (ANSI) Homeland Security Standards Panel, a member of the Toy Industry Association, Toy Safety Certification Program's Oversight Council and a sought after lecturer on standards, conformity assessment and regulation.

Previous positions include leading government affairs for the largest US product safety certification and standard development organization, Underwriters Laboratories (UL) in Washington, DC, and Staff Engineer for the medical device and information technology sectors at UL's Northbrook, IL headquarters. Gordon has worked collaboratively within the standards community to enhance health, safety, the environment and security throughout his career. In 2008 Gordon received an Environmental Protection Agency Gold Medal. He has also received a Department of Commerce Bronze Medal and the ANSI Meritorious Service Award for his work in standards and conformity assessment.

Gordon received a Bachelor's Degree BSEET from Bradley University in Peoria, IL.

Dr. Pieter J. Mosterman
Senior Reseach Scientist, The MathWorks, Inc.

Pieter J. Mosterman was born March 16, 1967 in Nes on the island Ameland off the coast of the Netherlands. In 1985 he started the B.Sc. program at the University of Twente which he received in 1987, followed by his M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the Control Laboratory in 1991. In 1992 he enrolled in the Ph.D. program of Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, and graduated at the Center for Intelligent Systems in 1997 with a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Dr. Mosterman is a senior research scientist at The MathWorks, Inc. in Natick, MA. Previously, he held a research position at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen for four years, funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation), to investigate object-oriented modeling of physical systems, specifically the mixed continuous-time/discrete-event behavior that often results in the models being of a hybrid system nature.

Dr. Mosterman's primary research interests are in Computer Automated Multiparadigm Modeling (CAMPaM) with principal applications in training systems and fault detection, isolation, and reconfiguration. He designed several modeling and simulation environments such as the Electronics Laboratory Simulator, nominated for The Computerworld Smithsonian Award by Microsoft Corporation, a first version of Transcend for diagnosis of continuous-time system in transient operating regions, and MAsim for simulating differential and algebraic equation based models from Modelica. He was awarded the IMechE Donald Julius Groen Prize for a paper on HyBrSim, a hybrid bond graph modeling and simulation environment. Specific areas of interest are modeling of physical systems, meta-modeling, and model and formalism transformation in computer aided control system design (CACSD) and in Electronics Design Automation (EDA). An important aspect concerns the behavior generation for heterogeneous models, which requires a hybrid dynamic systems approach.

Dr. Mosterman is currently Editor-in-Chief of Simulation: Transactions of The Society for Modeling and Simulation International for the Methodology section, and Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology and of Applied Intelligence. He was Guest Editor of special issues of ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation and IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology on the topic of CAMPaM. He co-organized the Model-Based Design for Embedded Systems track at the Design Automation and Test in Europe conference and exhibition in 2007 and 2008, the Computational Modeling and Simulation of Embedded Systems track at the 2007 Summer Computer Simulation Conference, the International Conference on High Level Simulation Languages and Applications in 2007, the annual International Bellairs CAMPaM Workshop since 2004, and the 14th International Workshop on Principles of Diagnosis in 2003.
