Dilian Gurov is an Associate Professor in Computer Science. He is also Coordinator of the Doctoral Programme in Computer Science at the CSC school.
His research interests include Software Specification and Verification (in particular Contracts for Software Development, Program Models, Logics and Tools, and Compositional and Procedure-Modular Reasoning), and more recently, Multi-Agent Strategic Planning (in particular Multi-Player Games with Imperfect Information, and Synthesis of Knowledge-Based Strategies). He has published roughly 12 journal papers and 45 refereed conference papers.
Dilian has an EASST award for Best Software Science Paper for his paper: Checking Absence of Illicit Applet Interactions: A Case Study. Marieke Huisman, Dilian Gurov, Christoph Sprenger, and Gennady Chugunov. In Proceedings of: FASE'04, Lecture Notes in Computer Science, vol. 2984, pp. 84-98.
Dilian’s most notable personal grants are from the Swedish Science Foundation VR, which has funded the projects SEFROS (2003 till 2006) and ContraST (2009 till 2011), and from Vinnova, which is currently funding the project AVerT2 (2022-2024). He has also been co-applicant on a number of successful Swedish and European project proposals.
Of industrial relevance is his collaboration with Scania on Functional Verification of C programs.
