Track: Quality Aspects of Services and Cloud Computing (QASCC)
Chairs: Vasilios Andrikopoulos (University of Groningen) and Elisabetta Di Nitto (Politecnico di Milano)
Vasilios Andrikopoulos is associate professor at the University of Groningen, where he is a member of the Software Engineering and Architecture group in the Bernoulli Institute for Mathematics, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. He received his PhD from Tilburg University, the Netherlands, and he has worked as a post-doc for both Tilburg University and the University of Stuttgart, Germany. His research interests are in the area of software architectures for cloud-based systems, with an emphasis on their sustainability across all its dimensions. He has participated in a number of EU-funded projects, including the Network of Excellence S-Cube.
Elisabetta Di Nitto is Full Professor at Politecnico di Milano. Elisabetta’s expertise lies in the area of software engineering and, in particular, of large-scale, open, service-oriented systems with a special attention to the techniques to make these systems self-adaptable to the changes in the environment and in the performances of its distributed components, and to enable them to identify and incorporate new components at runtime. Recently, she has been focusing on supporting the development, deployment and operation of data-intensive applications and on Cloud Computing and, in particular, on how to design applications that can run on multiple clouds in order to limit vendor lock-in and to increase availability and reliability of such applications. Elisabetta authored more than 150 papers, covered the role of program or general chair/co-chair in conferences such as ASE, SEAMS, ACSOS, ESEC/FSE, ICAC, has been associate editor of TOSEM and TSE, is currently co-editor in chief of SoftwarX, participated and had a leading role in a number of European projects such as MODAClouds, DICE, SODALITE, PIACERE.
