News:

* Demokritos Welcomes the "Data Management BootCamp" 2015 class.

Scope: Enthusiastic high school students participate to top level research activities, at predefined time periods such as: the spirng break, Easter-Christmas and Summer holidas (more)

* From June 2nd 2014: visiting Researcher at Barcelona Supercomputing Center  (Severo Ochoa Mobility Grant).

* Invited to participate in the Linux File and Storage Technologies (FAST) Summit '14, organized by Redhat and USENIX.

Overview: Linux is one of the most frequently used platforms in file and storage research and FAST is the premier conference for publishing research results from the file and storage research community. This summit will bring together key Linux kernel developers and academic researchers. The goal is to provide a forum for presenting and discussing current ideas in research with a group of active practitioners in the Linux Kernel. (more)
