Short CV

Vassileios Tsetsos received his B.Sc. in Informatics from the Department of Informatics & Telecommunications at the University of Athens, Greece in 2003 and his M.Sc. in "Communication Systems and Data Networks" from the same Department in 2005. In 2010 he received his Ph.D. from the same department. He has participated in R&D projects funded by the EU FP5 and FP7 programmes, and in several national research projects. His research interests are in the areas of pervasive and mobile computing, Semantic Web technologies and middleware for context-aware and sensor-based services.
