Christos Kaklamanis received his S.B. in Computer Science and Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA (1986). Then he obtained his S.M. (1989) and his Ph.D. (1992) in Computer Science from Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA. Afterwards he worked as Postdoctoral Fellow in Computer Science under the program for Massively Parallel Computation at the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS, Piscataway, NJ), an NSF funded joint project of Rutgers University, Princeton University, AT&T Bell Laboratories, and BellCoRe. He also worked as research consultant for NEC Research Institute, Princeton, NJ. Currently, he is Full Professor at the Department of Computer Engineering and Informatics of University of Patras where, from 2009 to 2011 and from 2003 to 2005 he served as Vice-Chair and from 1997 to 2003, he served as Director of the "Division of Applications and Foundations of Computer Science". He is also a senior researcher at the Computer Technology Institute & Press "Diophantus", Patras, Greece, where since 2007 he serves as Vice President. His research interests include design and analysis of algorithms, theory of computation, parallel and distributed computing, randomized and approximation algorithms, high-performance computing, fault tolerance, algorithmic game theory, computational social choice, cryptography, art and technology. He is (co-) author of more than 100 publications in major international conferences and journals. He has been a member of the scientific program and steering committees of several major conferences. During the last years, he has participated as leader/key researcher in many research, development or consulting projects funded by the European Union, the Greek State or the private sector, including the EU-FET projects CRESCCO and AEOLUS where he was the coordinator, the EU-ICT Project EULER as well as the project "DIGITAL SCHOOL: Digital School Platform, Interactive Books, and Learning Object Repository", co-funded by the Greek National Strategic Reference Framework, where he is the coordinator. He is a member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (elected member of the EATCS council), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the Technical Chamber of Greece (TEE).
