Brief CV

Anthony Savidis holds a PhD from the Department of Electronic Engineering, University of Kent (UK), with a Thesis in User Interface Programming Languages and Software Engineering of Adaptive Systems. He is an Affiliated Researcher at the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory, ICS-FORTH, and Professor, Department of Computer Science, University of Crete, in the area of Programming Languages and Software Engineering.

His most recent work concerns the Delta programming language, an untyped object-based language with a virtual machine, accompanied with an advanced IDE, and a recently introduced powerful compile-time metaprogramming layer.

He has extensive experience in the development of large-scale systems (has written more than 500K lines of code) and in the application of extreme programming, design patterns, architectural patterns, meta-programming and defensive programming.

He is in the steering committee of the current ERCIM working groups on Software Engineering for Resilient Systems (SERENE) and Software Evolution (EVOL), as well as in the former working groups on Rapid Integration of Software Engineering Techniques (RISE), User Interfaces for All (UI4ALL) and Smart Environments and Systems for Ambient Intelligence (SESAMI) that he co-chaired.
