Andrzej Goscinski

Dr. Andrzej Goscinski is a full Professor in the School of Information Technology, Deakin University, Australia, where he directs research programs in clouds and cloud computing, parallel processing, virtualization, security, autonomic and service computing, and in general, distributed systems and applications. From January 1993 to December 2001, Dr. Goscinski completed tenure as the Head of School, and from 2004 he has led his research group to successfully concentrate their research on autonomic grids based on SOA, the abstraction of software and resources as a service, and cloud computing. A major achievement in the area of autonomic grids based on SOA was the development of the concept of a broker that led to its use in clouds. Furthermore, a major achievement in the area of the abstraction of software and resources as a service and cloud computing was the development of the Resource Via Web Services (RVWS) framework that contains service’s dynamic state and characteristics, and service publishing, selection and discovery; the contribution to level of cloud abstraction in the form of CaaS (Cluster as a Service); comparative study of High Performance Computing clouds, and the development of H2D hybrid cloud. Currently, he concentrates his research on exposing HPC applications as services, publishing them to a broker, and executing them in a SaaS cloud by non-computing specialists. The results of this research have been published in high quality journals and conference proceedings. Dr. Goscinski serves as Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Service Computing; Associate Editor of Inderscience’s International Journal on Cloud Computing; Associate Editor of Springer's Future Generation Computer Systems; and General, Program Chair, and Honorary Chair of IEEE Services and Cloud Conferences, and Distributed and Parallel Systems and Applications.
