CV in Brief

Dr. Aris S. Lalos, is a Research Director at Industrial Systems Institute/ “ATHENA” Research Centre. Aris Lalos received his Diploma degree, his M.A.Sc. degree and his Ph.D. from the Computer Engineering and Informatics Department, University of Patras, Greece in 2003, 2005 and 2010, respectively. He has been a research fellow at Signal Processing and Communications Laboratory, CEID, SE, UoP, Rio-Patras, Greece from 2005 to 2010 and in Signal Theory and Communications (TSC) Department of the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), Barcelona, Spain from Oct. 2012-Dec. 2014. In period Oct. 2011- Oct. 2012 was a telecommunication research engineer at Analogies S.A, an early stage starts up. In May 2018, Aris S. Lalos was elected Principal Researcher (Associate Research Professor Level with tenure) at Industrial Systems Institute / “ATHENA” Research Centre and he is also a collaborative researcher in the Visualization and Virtual Reality Group.

His general research interest includes digital communications, adaptive filtering algorithms, geometry processing, wireless body area networks and biomedical Signal Processing. He is an author of 170 research papers in international journals (50), conferences (111) and book chapters (9). Many of these publications propose highly novel frameworks and systems in the area of digital communication, media processing, 2D-3D signal processing and learning that go significantly beyond the state-of-the-art. He has participated in several European projects related to the ICT and eHealth domain (e.g., COOPCOM, ALPHA, WSN4QoL, KinOptim, MOMIRAS, MyAirCoach etc.) and he acts as a regular reviewer for several technical journals. Aris Lalos received the best demo award in IEEE CAMAD 2014, the best paper award in IEEE ISSPIT 2015, the World’s FIRST 10K Best Paper Award in IEEE ICME 2017 while, in January 2015, he was nominated as Exemplary Reviewer for the IEEE Communications Letters. Dr Aris S. Lalos serves as deputy coordinator for the CPSoSAware H2020 EU Project and has served as technical coordinator for the GamECAR H2020 EU Project. Furthermore, he has assumed the role of Work Package leader for five H2020 projects. After 2018 he formed his own group (http://mips.isi.gr) at ISI that now counts 10 active members (post-docs, PhD students, and programming engineers) in research and development projects. Dr. Aris S. Lalos is also the co-founder and the chief scientific officer of AviSense (www.avisense.ai), a spin off originating from the Multimedia Information Processing Systems (MIPS) Group of the Industrial System Institute of the ATHENA RC and the Visualization and Virtual Reality Group (VVR) of the University of Patras.
