Starting 2017, Prof. Becker is a member of the steering committee of the International Conference on Software Architecture (ICSA). He is a founding member of the QoSA conference series, 2008 he has been PC-Co-Chair and from 2006 to 2017 he was a member in the QoSA steering committee. QoSA now is a part of ICSA. Since 2006 he is the head of the GI working group on model-driven software development of the special interest group on software architectures, since 2017 he is also the head of the special interest group (elected for three years). Furthermore, he is a member of a number of program committees of conferences in the areas of software architecture, software performance, and model-driven software development and evolution (e.g., ICPE, EPEW, CBSE, SEAA) where he was PC-Co-Chair of CBSE 2015 and ICPE 2016. He is a Co-Organizer of the national Symposium on Software Performance (SSP). He has executed several EU FP7 projects (CloudScale, Net.IDE, Q-ImPrESS), Q-ImPrESS as project lead. He has also executed several national level funded projects (AACC, SFC). He was a member of the first funding period of the DFG funded SFB 901 ”On-The-Fly Computing” where he also headed the architecture working group. He started his academic career as a researcher in the DFG funded young researcher group “Palladio” headed by Prof. Reussner where he was a main developer of the Palladio Component Model (PCM). The PCM’s main paper is in the Top 100 most cited papers of the last years in software engineering.
