Panagiotis Demestichas, Professor

Professor Panagiotis Demestichas received the Diploma and the Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). Since April 2012 he is full Professor at the Department of Digital Systems of the University of Piraeus, also leading the Telecommunication Networks and integrated Services (TNS) laboratory (http://tns.ds.unipi.gr). In the period from October 2015 to September 2016 he was on Sabbatical, collaborating with the University of Surrey and in particular its 5G Innovation Center. He has served as the Chairman of the Department of Digital Systems of the University of Piraeus (09.2011-09.2015), as an Assistant Professor (09.2002-11. 2007) and as an Associate Professor (12.2007-03.2012), he led (Project Coordinator) the project OneFIT (07.2010-12.2012), and he served as Technical Manager of the project E3 (09.2008-12.2009), while also being Chairman of various Work Groups of WWRF, the most recent being the WGC “Communication Architectures and Technologies” (01.2004-12.2015). Professor Demestichas teaches telecommunication networks, network design and management and queuing systems at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. He has supervised ten already completed PhD theses, and four currently under development. Currently the TNS laboratory participates in ICT projects partially funded by the European Union in the context of Horizon2020. The main research areas of the laboratory are smart/cognitive/autonomic management/convergence, management of ICT infrastructures/core-fixed access, applications/integrated services, SDN/NFV, smart wireless access, cognitive radio networks, opportunistic/sensor networks, as well as cloud/Internet of Things. Professor Demestichas participates in the project EuConNeCts2, in the context of which he organized the European Conference on Networks and Communications (EUCNC 2016), as the Chair of the Technical Programme Committee. The conference took place in Athens, Greece in June 2016. He has participated through various leading roles in the projects SLALOM, UniverSelf, iCore and ACROPOLIS. At a European level he has actively participated in research and development project under the framework programmes RACE II, ACTS, BRITE/EURAM, EURET, IST/FP5, IST/FP6, ICT/FP7. His recent interests include 5G aspects, and especially, the exploitation of spectrum beyond 6 GHz, overall spectrum management, 5G architectures, knowledge-based and predictive management, virtualization technologies based on SDN and NFV. He has several publications in these areas in international journals and refereed conferences. In terms of standardization, he has contributed to various standardization bodies such as ETSI and IEEE. He is a senior member of the IEEE, member of ACM and the Technical Chamber of Greece.
