This is a partial list of projects I have participated in over the years:
- The PaaSage European FP7 collaborative project (2012-2016), which aims to deliver an open and integrated platform to support model based lifecycle management of Cloud applications.
- The CumuloNimbo European FP7 collaborative project (2010-2013), which delivered a highly scalable multi-tier transactional platform as a service (PaaS)
- The STREAM European FP7 collaborative project (2008-2011) contributed a scalable fault-tolerant stream processing platform supporting a variety of applications operating on streaming data
- The ScaleWorks FP7 project (2009-2011) had the objective to improve the entire lifecycle of scalable distributed systems from design to engineering, prototyping, deployment, and operation, on contemporary cost-effective high-performance platforms
- The Galapagos project (2006-2009) at IBM Research contributed a model-based approach to distributed systems management with a focus on data and storage
- Research on the structure and performance of the Direct Access File System (2000-2004) received two best paper awards and helped shape industrial standardization efforts around direct-access (RDMA) interconnects
- The Symposium and Summer School on Service-Oriented Computing, Hersonissos, Crete, Greece
- International Master in Services Engineering or IMSE
