||Dr. Christos Goumopoulos received his diploma and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from University of Patras, Greece in 1992 and 2000 respectively. He is currently a lecturer at Aegean University and a cooperating professor in the Hellenic Open University. Since 1992 he has been involved as member or leader of scientific and technology teams in several EU-funded R&D projects in areas such as parallel and distributed computing, modeling languages, resource scheduling, ubiquitous computing and awareness systems. In 1998 he founded Lyseis Ltd., an IT SME activated in the development of resource scheduling information systems. In 2002 he joined Computer Technology Institute (www.cti.gr) as a senior member of the research group DAISY (Dynamic Ambient Intelligent Systems) with an aim to design distributed intelligent hardware/software systems, which are seamlessly integrated into objects and their environment. In the recent past he was project manager of the IST/FET/Open project “Plants”, and senior member of the research teams in AmI-focused projects “Hearts”, “eGadgets” and “ASTRA” contributing his expertise in distributed systems, component-based software engineering, scalability analysis, knowledge representation using ontologies and development of awareness services and platforms. Currently, he serves as a project manager and member of the scientific and technology team of “ATRACO”, a project on pervasive adaptation financed by ICT FET. He is a member of the Technical Chamber of Hellas, a member of ACM, IEEE, IEEE Computer Society. His research interests include distributed computing, ubiquitous computing and awareness management, middleware, software engineering, resource scheduling and ontological knowledge representation. He has more than 40 publications to his credit in international journals, books and conferences in these areas. He has also organized international workshops, and served as a reviewer on international journal and conferences.
