Biographical sketch (a lengthier CV can be found here): Professor at the Computer Engineering & Informatics Dept. (CEID) and Director of the High Performance Information Systems Laboratory. Director of the Software Division (2013-16) and director of the interdisciplinary graduate program “Mathematics of Computers and Decision Making” run together with the Mathematics Dept. at the University of Patras. Between Nov. 2010-June 2011 he held the position of invited professor and taught at the University of Rennes I (France), and at the University of Padova, Italy. He was also visiting faculty and consultant at the Computer Science Department of Purdue University and INRIA Rennes Bretagne-Atlantique. Prior appointments include research staff and faculty member at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (1986-96); assistant professor at the University of California Santa Barbara  (1985-86); visiting researcher at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (summer 1982 & 1983).  He participated as Senior Computer Scientist in research and development of the Cedar vector multiprocessor at the University of Illinois Center for Supercomputing Research and Development (1987-94); participated in the software development of the Goodyear Aerospace Massively Parallel Processor (MPP) (1980-85) receiving a NASA group achievement award  (For outstanding initiative and creativity in the development, demonstration, and practical application of the first Massively Parallel Processor) and in 2012, his students and he were awarded the ACM SIGWEB Hypertext Ted Nelson Newcomer Award.  His research in Greece has been funded by various European and national programs and in the US by the US National Science Foundation, the US Department of Energy and AT&T. He participated as member in scientific committees of many international conferences and on the editorial boards of several journals (Parallel Computing, International Journal of High Speed Computing, Computing in Science and Engineering) and special issues, most recently the International Journal of Parallel Programming. He was co-organizer of the 1991 NSF Workshop on Problem Solving Environments, and served as program chair of the 2001 ACM International Conference on Supercomputing. Recently, he was a  co-organizer of the 2015 Gene Golub SIAM Summer School on Randomized Numerical Linear Algebra. Dr. Gallopoulos received his Ph.D. at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the supervision of professor Daniel Slotnick and his B.Sc. (First Class Honours) in Mathematics from the Imperial College of Science and Technology (1979). He is a member of the ACM and SIAM.
