About the Author
Michael Fisher, Department of Computer Science, University of Liverpool, Liverpool
Michael Fisher is currently Professor of Computer Science at the University of Liverpool. He also heads the Logic and Computation research group and is Director of the Liverpool Verification Laboratory. Having been an active member of the research community for over 20 years, Professor Fisher is internationally recognised for his research into logic and computer science, particularly temporal verification, automated reasoning, high-level programming languages and formal methods for multi-agent systems. This has also led him to be programme chair of the International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning in 2004, and a member of the steering committee for this event. He has co-edited several books, including Advances in Temporal Logic (Kluwer, 2000), Foundations and Applications of Multi-Agent Systems (Springer-Verlag, 2002), Temporal Representation and Reasoning (IEEE Computer Society Press, 2002) and Handbook of Temporal Reasoning in Artificial Intelligence (Elsevier, 2005).
