NJIT to salute smart grid expert, Sotirios G. Ziavras

September 27, 2011

Sotirios G. Ziavras, PhD, a professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering, and director of the NJIT Computer Architecture and Parallel Processing Laboratory recently received the Excellence in Graduate Instruction Award at NJIT's University Convocation. Convocation at NJIT traditionally honors select faculty and staff members who have demonstrated the highest level of excellence over a sustained period.

In March of 2012, Ziavras will co-chair the special session on information and communication technologies for smart grids of the IEEE International Conference on Industrial Technology in Greece. He was past chair of the 2010 13th IEEE International Conference on Computational Science and Engineering and past program chair of the 21st IEEE International Conference on Tools with Artificial Intelligence in 2009. He has authored more than 160 research papers. For more information, please visit http://ece.njit.edu/people/ziavras

Ziavras' departmental administrative duties have included serving for many years as the associate chair for graduate studies. He's also served as the coordinator for the department's computer architecture and systems thrust area. His research interests are advanced computer architecture, embedded computing systems, parallel processing, VLSI design and reconfigurable computing.
