Short Bio

Angelos Bilas is currently a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Crete, Greece, where he has also held an Associate Professor position between 2002-2011, and a collaborating researcher at FORTH-ICS. Prof. Bilas received his diploma in Computer Engineering from the University of Patras in 1993, and the Masters and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from Princeton University, NJ in 1995 and 1998 respectively. Between 1998-2002 he held an Assistant Professor position with the ECE Department at the University of Toronto. His current interests include systems software for efficient storage systems, computing and storage architectures, low-latency high-bandwidth communication protocols, and runtime-system support for parallel systems. His work has been published in prestigious conferences in computer architecture and systems. Prof. Bilas is the recipient of a Marie Curie Excellent Teams Award (2005-2009), he has published more than 90 papers in peer-reviewed conferences workshops, and journals, he has served in the Program Committees of more than 100 conferences and workshops in his area, as the Program co-Chair for IEEE Cluster 2010, as the General co-Chair for EuroSys’2020, in the Editorial Board of IEEE Computer Architecture Letters (CAL) [2007-2011], and he currently serves in the Editorial Board of ACM Transactions on Storage [2016-] and the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing (JPDC) [May 2011-July 2018]. He has (co)supervised or is (co)supervising 35 Masters and 6 Ph.D students. He has participated in more than 45 EU, nationally, or industry funded projects. He has collaborated extensively with international industry while his research has been licensed to startups (two rounds of research results) and has been used in products by Fortune50 companies.
