Dr. Dionisios Pnevmatikatos received his B.Sc. in Computer Science from University of Crete in 1989 and a M.Sc. and PhD degrees in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 1991 and 1995 respectively.
He is a Professor at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens. From 2000-2019 he was Professor at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Technical University of Crete (TUC), where he served as Director of the Microprocessor and Hardware Laboratory (MHL) and as Chairman (one 2-year term). He is also a research associate with FORTH-ICS since 1997.
He was the coordinator in FASTER FP7 EU project, and Principal Investigator in the DeSyRe FP7 and the AXIOM, dRedBox, EXTRA, and EDRAH2020 projects, as well as in several national projects. His research interests include Computer Architecture, with a focus on using reconfigurable computing to create highly efficient, accelerated, heterogeneous parallel/rack-scale systems. He has also worked on Reliable System Design, Networking Hardware and Network Processors, Application Acceleration, Custom and Application-Specific Architectures, and Hardware Acceleration of Bioinformatics Algorithms. He has been in the Program Committee of conferences such as ISCA, FPL and DATE in Computer Architecture and Reconfigurable System topics, and has been a Program (co)chair for SAMOS 2018 and FPL 2011.
