Short CV
George Kornaros is an Associate Professor at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Dept. – Hellenic Mediterranean University, www.hmu.gr, (former Technological Educational Institute of Crete), Greece, where he leads the Intelligent Systems and Computer Architecture Group (https://isca.hmu.gr).
As appointed at Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, Hellenic Mediterranean University, currently as Associate Professor, the research activities focused on designing embedded systems for the Pointof-Care device in EU-funded project (Micro2DNA) and developing Lab-on-Chip in a national project (Lab-OnChip-ΑΤΕΙ-CRETE, Corallia Microelectronics Cluster, ΜΙΚΡΟ2-39/Ε-ΙΙ-Γ, EPAN-II). His recent research involves multi-core and heterogeneous architectures and particularly hardware support for optimizing embedded and cyber-physical systems with full-virtualization in terms of adaptable and secure processing (EU/FP7 projects VIRTICAL, SAVE, TRESCCA, DREAMS, EU/H2020 project TAPPS). The present research focus on IoT devices and communications security for IoT infrastructures (EU/H2020 FLUIDOS) and in Industry 4.0 (EU/H2020 AVANGARD).
In the past, Kornaros, appointed at ICS-FORTH, originally worked on semi-custom and full-custom VLSI design, where he contributed initially to the front- and back-end design of Telegraphos-II switch chip and later to the design, characterization and implementation of multi-ported memories RAM and CAM for the ATLAS single-chip switch. In industry, as appointed at ISD SA Kornaros leaded the Digital Integrated Systems Group doing research and development of network processor architectures. Later, in Ellemedia Technologies Ltd worked in EU and national projects as Technical Manager and co-head Architect in the same domain in designing single-chip high-speed network processors.
Kornaros professional activities include organization and presentations of a few workshops and tutorial while also serving as a reviewer for various IEEE/ACM journals and conferences. Kornaros has published more than 70 scientific articles in conferences, journals, book chapters and edited the book “MultiCore Embedded Systems”, CRC Press/Taylor & Francis Group.
Kornaros has a diploma in computer engineering and information science from the University of Patras (1992), an MSc in computer science from the University of Crete (1997) and a PhD from the Technical University of Crete (2013). He holds three patents and is a member of the Technical Chamber of Greece.
