Assistant Professor   Division of Computer Science

Brief Biography

Sotirios Xydis is a Graduate in Electrical and Computer Engineering (2005) from the National Technical University of Athens. He received a Master's Degree in Techno-Economic Systems in 2011 and a PhD from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of NTUA also in the same year. Between 2011-2013, he worked as a Post-doctoral Researcher at the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria of the Politecnico di Milano, with conducting research on design space exploration and optimization techniques for heterogeneous multi-/many-core hardware architectures. Since 2014, he has been a collaborating researcher at the Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (ICCS). Between 2015-2018, he worked as an Engineer at the Operator of the Hellenic Electricity Distribution Network (HEDNO). Then, for the period 2020-2023, he served as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Informatics and Telematics at the Harokopion University of Athens. From February 2023 he is an Assistant Professor at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (Sector of Information and Computer Technology) of the National Technical University of Athens.

His research interests focus on hardware/software co-design of digital systems, heterogeneous system optimization techniques for low power and/or energy-efficient hardware accelerators, and memory and resource management in embedded and cloud computing systems. He has participated in more than 15 European and national research and development projects as a Researcher, Technical Coordinator and Principal Investigator.

Dr. Xydis' research work includes more than 120 publications in international scientific journals, proceedings of international conferences and books, while his work has cited more than 1500 times according to Google Scholar. He is regularly a Reviewer or member of Program Committees at key conferences in his area such as DATE, FPL, ICCAD, DAC, ISCA, etc. His research work has been honored three times with the best scientific paper award at international scientific conferences, i.e. IEEE/NASA/ESA Adaptive Hardware Systems (AHS 2007), ACM Parallel Programming and Run-Time Management Techniques for Many-core Architectures (PARMA 2013) and ACM Computing Frontiers (CF 2020), while he has received a Hipeac award for his work at DAC'19 and DAC'20.
