Finally handed in my Phd Thesis

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

Done. 266 Pages. 5 Copies. Today is what I would call a milestone of my “Project Phd”. I handed in my Phd thesis at the Johannes Kepler University. After lots of feedback I got from my supervisors as well as some review rounds with my lecturer this work is finished.

For all of you, who want to have nice book, I had my thesis bound at Machatschke ( a very nice bookbinder in the 4th districted of Vienna. I’m happy to recommend her.

Now it’s time to start learning and preparing myself for my final exams – the viva voce (Rigorosum). Cross your fingers that this works out as well.

In the most recent issue of the OCG (Österreichische Computer Gesellschaft; Austria Computer Society) Journal there is an article I wrote on NFC Technolgy and futher development. The article gives a brief overview on NFC Technolgy, possible usecases as well as security related issues which I do cover in my PhD thesis in more detail.
