27-30 August 2018 JCKBSE 2018
(2nd International Workshop On Algorithmic Aspects Of Cloud Computing)

Brief description: The main objective of the JCKBSE series of biennial conferences is to bring together researchers and practitioners to share ideas on the foundations, techniques, tools, and applications of knowledge-based software engineering theory and practice. JCKBSE2018 is the 12th Conference in the series, following previous JCKBSE conferences held in Pereslavl-Zalesskii (1994), Sozopol (1996), Smolenice (1998), Brno (2000), Maribor (2002), Protvino (2004), Tallinn (2006), Piraeus (2008), Kaunas (2010), Rhodes (2012), and Volgograd (2014). JCKBSE2018 will last for four days and it will feature regular sessions with technical contributions reviewed and selected by an international program committee, as well as of invited talks given by distinguished keynote speakers and tutorials presented by leading scientists. The official language of the conference will be English.
Specific role: Program co-chair.
Location: Corfu, Greece.

22 August 2016 Algocloud 2016
(2nd International Workshop On Algorithmic Aspects Of Cloud Computing)

Brief description: The International Workshop on Algorithmic Aspects of Cloud Computing (ALGOCLOUD 2016) is an annual event co-located with ALGO 2016 aiming to tackle the diverse new topics in the emerging area of algorithmic aspects of computing and data management in the Cloud. The increasing adoption of cloud computing introduces a variety of parallel and distributed algorithmic models and architectures. To leverage elastic cloud resources, scalability has to be a fundamental architectural design trait of new cloud databases. This challenge is manifested in new data models (“NoSQL”), replication, caching and partitioning schemes, relaxed consistency and transaction guarantees as well as new protocols, APIs, indexing and storage services. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners in cloud computing algorithms, service design and data architectures to exchange ideas and contribute to the development of this exciting and emerging new field.

28 June – 1 July 2011 ISCC 2011
(IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications)

Brief description: The IEEE symposium on Computers and Communications started in 1995 in response to the growing interaction between the fields of computers and communications. ISCC takes place annually, typically in the beginning of July. Symposium locations include Egypt, Greece, France, Tunisia, Portugal, Spain, Morocco, and Italy with plans for other sites in the Mediterranean region.
Sessions will include tutorials in addition to presentations on new research results. Papers describing original work are invited in any of the computers and communications areas described in the call for papers will be considered.
Specific role: Local Committee Chair.
Location: Corfu, Greece.

14 June 2010 AOC 2010
(IEEE WoWMoM Workshop on Autonomic and Opportunistic Communications)

Brief description: The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum between the autonomic and opportunistic communication communities to exchange ideas, discuss solutions, and share experiences among researchers, professionals, and application developers both from industry and academia.
The synergies between autonomic and opportunistic communications & social networks studies and technologies are one of the primary interests of this year’s edition.
Original papers addressing both theoretical and practical aspects of autonomic and opportunistic communications and are solicited.
Papers describing prototype implementations and deployments are welcome.
Specific role: Workshop co-Chair (co-charing together with Prof. Hongyi Wu, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, USA)
Location: Montreal, Canada.

12-15 June 2007 Med-Hoc-Net 2007
(Mediterranean Ad Hoc Networking Workshop)

Brief description: Med-Hoc-Net 2007 is an established annual international workshop aiming to serve as a forum where researchers from academia, research labs and the industry from all over the world, meet to share ideas, views, results, and experiences in the field of ad hoc networking. Anything from theoretical and experimental achievements, to innovative ad hoc systems, prototyping efforts, and case studies is of interest to the Med-Hoc-Net community.
After Lipari in the Eolian Islands (Italy), this year Med-Hoc-Net will take place in another wonderful island: Corfu. Corfu is located at the west part of Greece in the Ionian Sea. It is an island full of life with extensive cultural activities that combine effectively the British, French, Venetian and Greek influence.
