About the person

Albert Treytl is senior researcher in the area of communication technologies and security. He received his master degree with distinction in electrical engineering (focus on computer technology) at the Vienna University of Technology in 2001. His research focuses on security and communication for resource limited embedded networked devices in distributed systems and IoT.

From 1996 to 2000 he led the development of a bank simulation software for a continuing education network of the Austrian government.

Starting in 2000 he worked at the Institute of Computer Technology at the Vienna University of Technology as a research assistant in the area of building control, energy management systems and security. His focus was on security of automation networks such as field busses and wireless ad-hoc networks. The topics of his research projects included web-based interfacing of energy management systems, electronic payment, smart card application development and research, and smart grid security measures.

2006 he joined the Austrian Academy of Sciences where he lead a working group on the security and vertical integration. During this time he co-developed an architecture of an agent-based distributed manufacturing execution system including a complete FIPA compliant agent platform hosted on an active RFID supporting full security and continued his work on Smart Grid Security, e.g. in DLC+ VIT4IP (FP7). Additionally, he investigated the security of clock synchronization systems.

Since 2013 he is head of the Center for Distributed Systems and Sensor Networks and deputy head of the Department for Integrated Sensor Systems at the University for Continuing Education Krems (Danube University Krems). His research is dealing with distributed data management and data processing in sensor networks and the integration of sensor systems. This comprises securing sensor networks, distributed energy optimization in industrial and office buildings as well as integration of sensors in intelligent traffic systems. Recent research is on digital twins, embedded intelligence and applications of AI methods for model predictive control strategies, e.g. for ventilative cooling or demand side management.

He is author of more than 100 peer reviewed scientific publications and leader of multiple national and international projects. Aside this, he is engaged in various technical committees (IEEE, CEN TC 247 WG4, IEEE1588 standardisation), scientific conferences and is co-lecturer at the Vienna University of Technology.
