Short bio:

Nectarios Koziris is a Professor of Computer Science and the Dean of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens. His research interests include parallel and distributed systems, interaction between compilers, OS and architectures, datacenter hyperconvergence, scalable data management and large scale storage systems. He has co-authored more than 140 research papers with more than 2800 citations (h-index:24). From 1998 he has been involved in the organization of many international scientific conferences including IPDPS, ICPP, SC, SPAA, etc. He has given many invited talks in conferences and universities. He is a recipient of two best paper awards for his research in parallel and distributed computing (IEEE/ACM IPDPS 2001 and CCGRID 2013) and had received honorary recognition from Intel (2015) for his research and insightful contributions in transactional memory (TSX synchronization extensions). He has participated as a partner or consortium coordinator in several EU projects involving large-scale systems (GREDIA, GRID4ALL, ARCOMEM, CELAR, ASAP, EGI, PRACE etc). He is a member of the IEEE Computer Society, senior member of the ACM, elected chair of the IEEE Greece Section and started the IEEE Computer Society Greece. To promote the open source software in Greece, he co-founded the Greek Free/Open Source Software Society (GFOSS-www.ellak.gr) in 2008, with members 29 Greek Universities and Research Centers, where he is now serving as the Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors. He was a member of the European Commission's cloud computing expert group (2012-2013) which was established with the aim to develop a cloud computing vision for Europe and future research directions and he is also serving in the EC task force for the Next Generation Internet. For the last 10 years (2004-2014), Nectarios has served as the Vice-Chair for the Greek Research and Technology Network-GRNET. He was the founder of the ~okeanos project, a public Cloud IaaS infrastructure, among the biggest ones in the European public sector (topping out beyond 10.000 active VMs), powered by the open source Synnefo software (www.synnefo.org). ~Okeanos and ~okeanos-global for the GÉANT community, offer IaaS services to thousands of academics and researchers around Europe. He has also served (2013-2014) as a member of the BoD for the Athena Research and Innovation Center in Information, Communication and Knowledge Technologies. He is an advisor to Arrikto Inc., a fresh startup based in Palo Alto, California, that develops storage intelligence to access, manage, and store data in large-scale, heterogeneous and hybrid environments.
