Prof. Andreas Pitsillides (male) is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science, University of Cyprus, and heads the Networks Research Laboratory (NetRL, http://www.NetRL.cs.ucy.ac.cy), which he founded in 2002. Andreas is also a Founding member and Chairman of the Board of the Cyprus Academic and Research Network (CYNET) since its establishment in 2000. Since May 2014 Andreas is also appointed Visiting Professor at the University of Johannesburg, Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering Science, South Africa. His broad research interests include communication networks (fixed and mobile/wireless), Nananetworks and Software Defined Metamaterials, the Internet- and Web- of Things, Nanoneworks, Smart Systems (e.g. Smart Grid) and Smart Spaces (e.g. Home, City), and Internet technologies and their application in Mobile e-Services, especially e-health, and security. He has a particular interest in adapting tools from various fields of applied mathematics such as adaptive non-linear control theory, computational intelligence, game theory, and recently complex systems and nature inspired techniques, to solve problems in communication networks. Published over 250 referred papers in flagship journals (e.g. IEEE, Elsevier, IFAC, Springer), international conferences, and book chapters, he is the co-author with Josephine Antoniou of the book Game Theory in Communication Networks: Cooperative Resolution of Interactive Networking Scenarios (CRC, ISBN: 978-1439848081, 2012), he is the co-editor with Petros Ioannou of the book on Modelling and Control of Complex Systems (CRC Press, ISBN: 978-0-8493-7985-0, 2007), participated in over 30 European Commission and locally funded research projects with over 6.5 million Euro as principal or co-principal investigator, presented keynotes, invited lectures at major research organisations, short courses at international conferences and short courses to industry. He serves on the editorial boards of the Journal of Computer Networks (COMNET) and International Journal of Handheld Computing Research (IJHCR), serves/served on international conferences as General Chair (ISSPIT 2016, ComComAp 2015, ISCC2015, MedHocNet2012, ICT2011, EuroMedNet’98), Vice General Chair (WiOpt’07), international co-chair (INFOCOM 2003), technical program chair (NanoCom 2017, MCCS05, ISYC06), and on executive committees (e.g. INFOCOM 2001–2003, and ICT98), technical committees, guest co-editor, invited speaker, and as a regular reviewer for conference and journal submissions. He is also a member of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) Technical Committee (TC 1.5) on Networked Systems, IFAC TC 7.4 on Transportation Systems (until 2014) and the IFIP working group WG 6.3. Current competitive research projects in which Andreas is involved as a (co)principal investigator include VISORSURF (2016), a FET Horizon 2020 program with 1.8 MEuro funding to UCY, and past European Commission funded (e.g. SEOP, AGILE, GINSENG, C-CAST, C-MOBILE, MOTIVE, B-BONE, E-NEXT, SEACORN, M-POWER, GN2 and GEANT), National Research Board funded (e.g. MIND2C, EM-VANETS, VIDEO, TRAFFICNET, TRAFBUS, DITIS), Cambridge Microsoft Research Labs (DITIS II) and University project grants (e.g. ADIVIS).
