Short Bio

Yiannis Cotronis is Assistant Professor at the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, University of Athens. He holds a B.Sc. in Mathematics (University of Sussex UK), M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Computing Science (University of Newcastle, UK). He has worked as a research associate in University of Newcastle, University of Patras-CTI and University of Athens. He also worked as an R&D manager in industry in Greece. He has worked in projects on parallelism (specification languages, verification, parallel query execution, etc.). He has designed and developed tools supporting the composition of message passing applications. He has coordinated a recent feasibility study for the need of a HPC infrastructure in Greece, on which the foreseen HPC will be based. He is a PRACE project evaluator. He was Program committee chair for EuroMPI (2001 and 2011), PDP Euromicro (2000 and 2011) and PC member of these conferences for a number of years.
