Short Bio:
Ioannis Emiris is Professor at the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece, and currently Head of the Sector of Theoretical Informatics. He has been Visiting Professor at Ecole Normale de Paris, Ecole Centrale de Paris (2009) and the University of Crete (2000). He was Tenured Researcher at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis during 1995-2002. He obtained his Habilitation in Nice (2000), his Ph.D. and M.Sc. in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley (1994 and 1991, respectively), and his B.Sc.Eng in Computer Science from Princeton University (1989). His research interests lie in computational geometry, algebraic algorithms, scientific computing and applications in robotics, and structural bioinformatics.
Under his supervision, 3 PhD Theses have been completed in Athens, and another 3 are currently being undertaken. He has also supervised 4 Postdocs. Prof. Emiris has more than 30 journal and more than 40 conference publications, including Distinguished Paper Awards at ACM International Symposium on Symbolic & Algebraic Computation (ISSAC) 2002 and 2010. He is co-editor of two volumes published by Springer: "Systems of Polynomial Equations: Foundations, algorithms, and applications" (2005) and "Nonlinear Computational Geometry" (2010), and author of a book in Greek entitled "Computational Geometry: A modern algorithmic approach". He is Associate editor of "Journal of Symbolic Computation", was guest co-editor of "Theoretical Computer Science" and "Computational Geometry: Theory and Applications", and is chairing the Program Committee of the 2011 ACM International Symposium on Symbolic & Algebraic Computation (ISSAC).
He has been site leader in the European STREP FET-Open project "Algorithms for Complex Shapes" (2005-08), in which the Athens site coordinated the Software workpackage. He is site leader in the Marie-Curie Training Network "Shapes, Geometry and Algebra" (2008-12) and in the STREP FET-Open project "Computational Geometry Learning" (2010-13). He has also coordinated a number of national and bilateral projects, and maintains several collaborations at the international level, most notably with INRIA, France. Prof. Emiris has (co-)organized certain international events, such as the International Workshop on Computer Algebra in Scientific Computing (CASC 2005), the European Workshop on Computational Geometry (EuroCG 2006), and the Fall School on Shapes, Geometry and Algebra (SAGA 2010).
