Martin L. Griss is the Director of Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley. With nearly 40
years of experience in software development, education, and research, Martin spent two
decades as Principal Laboratory Scientist at Hewlett-Packard and as Director of HP's
70-person Software Technology Laboratory. Martin is a leading authority on software reuse
and component-based development and led HP’s corporate reuse program. Also at HP Labs,
where he was widely known as HP’s “Reuse Rabbi,” Martin spearheaded work on software
agents, software tools and process, UML standards, and component-based software
engineering. 

Previously at the University of Utah for nine years as a tenured Associate Professor of
computer science, Martin taught software engineering and led research in software
engineering, software portability, symbolic computation and compiler development;
supervised M.S. and Ph.D. students; and developed and distributed Portable Standard LISP.
More recently, he was an Adjunct Professor of computer science at U.C. Santa Cruz,
leading research on context-aware intelligent software agent systems. 

Martin earned his B.Sc. in mathematics and physics from the Technion in 1967 and a Ph.D.
in physics from the University of Illinois in 1971. He has served on the ACM SIGSOFT
Executive Committee, a joint ACM/IEEE “Software Engineering as Profession” taskforce, and
numerous program, workshop and tutorial committees. He is co-author of the popular book
Software Reuse: Architecture, Process and Organization for Business Success and has
published over fifty papers, 60 technical reports, and numerous columns, panels, and
tutorials on software reuse, components and agents. He is a sought-after speaker and
consultant, delivering invited talks and tutorials on reuse, software engineering, and
software agents at academic, professional, and industry conferences and workshops.
