Who’s behind Prosa?

Prosa is an open-source project by and for real-time systems researchers. It is currently being maintained by the MPI-SWS real-time systems group.

The project was initially launched by Felipe Cerqueira and Björn Brandenburg of the real-time systems group at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems (MPI-SWS) in Kaiserlautern, Germany.

From 2018 until 2021, it was further developed by several groups as part of the French-German RT-Proofs project.

The goals of the Prosa project exceed the scope of what any single group can sustain in the long term. We therefore envision Prosa to transition into a true community effort and actively seek collaborators at all levels of expertise.
