Short CV
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 and Chair of the Department of Computer Engineering and Informatics of the University of Patras, where he also served as Vice-Chair (2009-2011 and 2003-2005) and as the Director of the "Division of Applications and Foundations of Computer Science" (1997-2003). He served as President of Computer Technology Institute & Press "Diophantus" (CTI) (2016-2021), where he also served as Acting President (2013-2016) and Vice President (2007-2013). His research interests include design and analysis of algorithms, computational complexity, communication networks, parallel and distributed computing, randomized and approximation algorithms, algorithmic game theory, computational social choice, high-performance computing, cryptography, ICT in education. He is (co-) author of more than 120 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 was the coordinator. He is a member of the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (elected member of the EATCS council, 2009-2021), the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), the Technical Chamber of Greece (TEE).
