Prof. George C. Polyzos is leading the Mobile Multimedia Laboratory at the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB), where he is Professor of Computer Science and Director of the Graduate Program in Computer Science. He has served as Director of the Computer and Communications Systems Division (2005-2007) and as member of the Board of Directors of AUEB's Research Center (2001-2004). He teaches graduate and undergraduate courses on Wireless Networks and Mobile Communications and Multimedia Systems and undergraduate courses in Digital Logic Design, Computer Organization and Computer Architecture. Previously, he was Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), where he was co-director of the Computer Systems Laboratory, member of the Steering Committee of the UCSD Center for Wireless Communications and Senior Fellow of the San Diego Supercomputer Center. He has advised or co-advised 16 Ph.D. students and supervised many graduate and undergraduate theses and projects. He has published more than 250 refereed papers and there are more than 8000 citations to his publications. His current research interests include Internet architecture and protocols, Information-Centric Networking, mobile multimedia communications, ubiquitous computing, Internet-of-Things, wireless networks, security and privacy, and performance analysis of computer and communications systems.

Dr. Polyzos has been Principal Investigator or has participated in many research projects at UCSD and AUEB, both publicly and privately funded, including by the US National Science Foundation, Digital Equipment Corporation, National Semiconductor Corporation, Hitachi, Microsoft Research, the European Commission, the European Space Agency and Greek National Funding. Under his leadership the MMlab has participated in a series of Research projects funded by the EC (FP7 PSIRP, FP7 PURSUIT and H2020 POINT) that developed Publish-Subscribe Internetworking, an Information-Centric Networking (ICN) architecture which then enabled the ARISTEIA project I-CAN, investigating ICN for future wireless and mobile access networks. FP7 project PURSUIT received the Future Internet Award in 2013. He currently leads MMlab’s participation in H2020 project SOFIE (Secure Open Federation for Internet Everywhere), which develops technologies for enabling the open interoperation of IoT “silos” and 4th Generation business platforms.

Prof. Polyzos received his Diploma in Electrical Engineering from the National Technical University in Athens, Greece and his M.A.Sc. in Electrical Engineering and Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Toronto. He is serving on the editorial board of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing and has served as guest editor for: IEEE Personal Communications, Mobile Networks and Applications, IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, and Computer Networks and on the Program Committees of many conferences and workshops. He has also chaired the Steering Committee of the ACM SIGCOMM conference on Information-Centric Networking and is now on the Steering Committee of the Wireless and Mobile Networking Conference (IFIP TC6 WG 6.8). He has also been invited keynote speaker and panelist at conferences and workshops and reviewer and panelist for the US National Science Foundation and the European Commission and reviewer for the California MICRO program, the Swiss National Science Foundation, the European Coordinated Research on Long-term Challenges in Information and Communication Sciences & Technologies and the Greek General Secretariat of Research and Technology. He is a senior member of the ACM and member of the IEEE. His full CV, including the list of publications, is available at
