Giorgos Dimitrakopoulos


Giorgos Dimitrakopoulos received the Diploma in Computer Engineering from the Computer Engineering and Informatics Dept. of the University of Patras in 2001. In 2003 he completed the MSc in "Hardware- Software Integrated Systems" and in 2007 he earned the PhD from the same department. Between 2008 and 2010 he worked as a Postdoctoral fellow at the Computer architecture and VLSI Systems Lab of the Institute of Computer Science (ICS) of the Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH) and at the University of Crete. Later on, he was appointed as a Lecturer to the Informatics and Communication Engineering Department, of the University of West Macedonia, Kozani, Greece. Since January 2012, he is a Lecturer of Digital Integrated Circuits in the ECE dept. of the Democritus University of Thrace.

G. Dimitrakopoulos serves as the TPC co-chair of the NoCARC 2014 workshop. In the past, he served as a general chair of the INA-OCMC 2014 workshop co-located with Hipeac conference, while in the previous years 2012 and 2013 he served as a program chair. He has also served on the technical program committees of DATE (2011, 2013-2015), FPL (2011-2014), VLSI-SOC (2014-2015), SAMOS 2014, RECONFIG 2013, and ICECS 2011 conferences, as well as INAOCMC (2010-2011), NoCArc (2008-2013), UCHPC (2012-2014) and OMHI (2012-2014) workshops. He is guest co-editor of the IET-Computer and Digital Techniques and Springer Design Automation of Embedded Systems special issue on Interconnection Network Architectures, while he regularly serves as a reviewer for other various IEEE journals and conferences. Since 2011 he has participated in a number of PhD thesis committees' in UPV, University of Zaragoza, and UPC in Spain as well as in University of Patras and University of Crete in Greece.

His research interests lie in the broad areas of digital integrated circuits and computer architecture, and more specifically, he is interested in the design of on-chip interconnection networks for both ASIC and FPGA-based systems, in ultra low power digital design, as well as in the definition of new architectures for high-performance graphics accelerators. In these areas he has published 33 journal and conference papers and book chapters. For his work in network-on-chip switch architectures he has given invited lectures and seminars in UPV Spain, NoC symposium 2012 Denmark, University of Cyprus and University of Patras. An enhanced version of this material will be published in a book "Microarchitecture of Network-on-Chip Routers" by Spinger in 2014. He is a member of the HIPEAC network of excellence and the IEEE.
