Short bio

Ivona Brandic is University Professor for High Performance Computing Systems at the Institute of Information Systems Engineering, Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) where she leads the High Performance Computing Systems Research Group. In 2015 she was awarded FWF START prize, the highest Austrian award for early career researchers. Since 2016 she is member of the Young Academy of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.

From 2002 to 2007 she was Assistant Professor at the Department of Scientific Computing, University of Vienna. Form 2007 to 2014 she was Assistant Professor at the Institute of Information Systems, TU Vienna. From 2014 to 2015 she was Assistant Professor at the Institute for Software Technology and Interactive Systems. She received her PhD degree in 2007 and her venia docendi for practical computer science in 2013, both from Vienna University of Technology. From 2009 to 2012 she led the Austrian national FoSII (Foundations of Self-governing ICT Infrastructures) project funded by the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF). She was management committee member of the European Commission’s COST Action on Energy Efficient Large Scale Distributed Systems and of the COST Action on Sustainable Ultrascale Computing (NESUS). From June to August 2008 she was visiting researcher at the University of Melbourne, Australia. I. Brandic was on the Editorial Board of IEEE Magazine on Cloud Computing and IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems. Currently she is on the Editorial Board of IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing.

In 2011 she received the Distinguished Young Scientist Award from the Vienna University of Technology for her project on the Holistic Energy Efficient Hybrid Clouds. Her interests comprise virtualized HPC systems, energy efficient ultra-scale distributed systems, massive-scale data analytics, Cloud & workflow Quality of Service (QoS), and service-oriented distributed systems. She published more than 50 scientific journal, magazine and conference publications and she co-authored a text-book on federated and self-manageable Cloud infrastructures. I. Brandic co-authored European Union’s Cloud Computing report paving the future research directions of the EU. She has been serving more than 50 program committees among others Supercomputing, CCGrid, EuroPar, and IPDPS. She was invited reviewer of more than 10 renowned international journals among others IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems, IEEE Transactions on Service Computing, Future Generation Computer Systems, and IEEE Transactions on Computers. I. Brandic has been invited expert evaluator of the European Commission, French National Research Organization (ANR), National Science and Engineering Research Council Canada (NSERC), Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), Australian Research Council (ARC), Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO), Ontario Research Fund, and Israel Science Foundation (ISF). In 2019 she chaired CHIST-ERA panel (ANR) on Smart Distribution of Computing in Dynamic Networks (SDCDN).
