Axel van Lamsweerde is Full Professor at the Department of Computing Science of the Universite catholique de Louvain, Belgium. He was formerly research associate at Philips Research Labs and professor at the universities of Namur and Bruxelles. He was also research fellow at the University of Oregon and the Computer Science Lab of Stanford Research Institute (Menlo Park, CA). He was co-founder of two software technology transfer centers supported by the European Union.

His research interests are in precise techniques for requirements engineering, system modeling, high assurance systems, lightweight formal methods, process modeling and analysis, medical safety, and knowledge-based software development environments. Since 1990 he has been instrumental in the development of the KAOS goal-oriented modeling language, method, and toolset. The method and toolset have been used worldwide in more than 25 industrial projects. He is author of the book "Requirements engineering: From System Goals to UML Models to Software Specifications" (Wiley).

van Lamsweerde was Editor-in-Chief of the ACM Transactions in Software Engineering and Methodology (ACM, New York), Program Chair of major international software engineering conferences including ESEC'91 and ICSE'94, founding member of the IFIP WG2.9 Working Group on Requirements Engineering, and is currently Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering. He has been keynote speaker at major conferences in the field including the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE'2000) and the International Joint Conference on Requirements Engineering (RE'04). He is an ACM Fellow (2000), recipient of the ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Service Award (2003), and the ACM SIGSOFT Outstanding Research Award (2008).
