Invited speakers

Dr. Peter Lewis - University of Birmingham

Peter Lewis is a post-doctoral research fellow at the Centre of Excellence for Research in Computational Intelligence and Applications (Cercia) in the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham. His research is concerned with investigating algorithms and techniques for achieving self-awareness and self-expression in decentralized computational systems. Particular focuses include economics-inspired computational techniques and online learning algorithms, such as those using evolutionary computation and other nature-inspired techniques. He obtained his PhD from the University of Birmingham in 2010, on the topic of evolutionary market-based resource allocation in decentralised computational systems.

Dr. Lamia Youseff - Google

Dr. Youseff holds a Doctorate degree in Computer Science from the University of California, Santa Barbara and has received her post-doctoral training at MIT working at CSAIL with Professor Anant Agarwal on research in cloud computing, operating systems and next generation exascale computing paradigm. Dr. Youseff has received several awards, including the international ACM-UPE'02, the AUC presidential cup'03, XHPC best paper award'06 and IPDPS best poster award'08 at the TCPP forum. In addition, she has served as a program committee member, program co-chair and organizer to several top conferences and workshops in computing systems, including SOCC, DAC and USENIX Middleware. She also has tens of technical publications and book chapters with more than 1000 non-self citations. She is currently a research software engineer in cloud computing at Google Seattle, WA office.

Dr. Youseff's talk is sponsored by Awareness, a FET coordination action funded by the European Commission under FP7.

Prof. Marco D. Santambrogio - Politecnico di Milano

Marco D. Santambrogio received his laurea (M.Sc. equivalent) degree in Computer Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano in 2004, his second M. Sc. degree in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) in 2005 and his PhD degree in Computer Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano in 2008. Dr Santambrogio was at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT as postdoc fellow and he is now assistant professor at Politecnico di Milano, research affiliate at MIT and adjunct professor at UIC. Marco D. Santambrogio is a member of the IEEE, the IEEE Computer Society (CS) and the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CAS). He has been with the Micro Architectures Laboratory at the Politecnico di Milano, where he founded the Dynamic Reconfigurability in Embedded System Design (DRESD) project in 2004 and the CHANGE project in 2010. He conducts research and teaches in the areas of reconfigurable computing, computer architecture, operating system, hardware/software codesign, embedded systems, and high performance processors and systems.
