Short Biography

George Spanoudakis is Professor of Software Engineering at City University London and Director of the Research Centre on Adaptive Computing Systems ( CeNACS). He is also a member of the Council of University of Piraeus (Greece). He holds a BSc degree in Informatics (Athens University of Economics & Business Science, 1988), an MSc degree in Advanced Methods in Computer Science (Queen Mary College-University of London, 1989) and a PhD in Computer Science (University of Crete, 1994). Prior to his current post, he had been a lecturer (1997-99), senior lecturer (1999-2004) and reader (2004-06) at City University. He had also been Head of the Department of Computing at City (2004-2007) and Associate Dean for Research of the School of Informatics at City (2010-2014), and held visiting posts at the University of Crete (1999), London School of Economics (1999), University of Essen (2001), University of Malaga (2008) and ICS-FORTH (2015).

Professor Spanoudakis works in the broad field of software systems engineering. In 2000, he established the Software Engineering Research Group at City research group (SE@City) and led it until 2014 when the group became part of the Centre for Adaptive Computing Systems Engineering (CeNACS)).

His current research interests focus on service oriented computing, cloud computing and software systems security (with particular focus on assessing system security compliance and risk, security certification and security-by-design). He has published extensively in the areas of his research (more than 150 peer reviewed publications) and has obtained more than 7.2m Euro of external research funding.

He has also been the principal investigator of several research projects including EVOTION (EU H2020, Nov 2016 - Oct 2019), TOREADOR (EU H2020, Jan 2016 - Dec 2018), SDN/5G Threat Landscape (ENISA, Jul 2015- Nov 2015), EMBalance (EU F7, Dec 2013 - Nov 2016), CUMULUS (EU F7, Oct 2012- Sep 2015), ASSERT4SOA (EU F7, 2010-13), IoT-at-Work (IoT technology in manufacturing, 2010-2013, co investigator), S-CUBE (EU F7, 2008-12) and SLA@SOI (Empowering the Service Economy with SLA-aware Infrastructures, 2008-11), the EU Framework 6 projects SERENITY (Systems Engineering for Security and Dependability, 2006-08), PEPERS (Mobile Peer-to-Peer Security Infrastructure, 2006-08), SECSE (Service-centric System Engineering, 2004-2008), GREDIA (2006-2009, co-investigator), and the EPSRC project IMOOSD (1999-2000).

Beyond research, he has been providing consultancy advice to private companies, public funding bodies, universities and standardisation bodies.

He has also been serving as a member of the editorial boards of international journals, including Int. Journal of Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering, Int. Journal Of Web Services Research, Int. Journal Of Service Computing, Int. Journal On Advances in Intelligent Systems, Int. Journal On Advances in Security, and Int. Journal On Advances in Software , and the programme committees of more than 180 international conferences and workshops. Currently, he is a Co-Chair of 12th International Conference on Novel Approaches to Software Engineering (ENASE 2017).
