Short CV (Academic & Research focus)

Dr. Konstantinos Kotis obtained his BSc (Hons) from the Honours School of Computation at University of Manchester (UMIST), UK, in 1995. He obtained his PhD in Information Management (in the area of Knowledge Representation and Management) from the Department of Information and Communication Systems Engineering, University of the Aegean, Greece, in 2005. He then worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Artificial Intelligence Lab of the same department (2005-2006). From 2006 to 2010 he also worked at the same department as an adjunct lecturer and as a post-doc researcher. During this period he supervised or co-supervised several theses and taught courses at both graduate and post-graduate level. Konstantinos also worked as an IT director in a governmental local administrative authority organization (2000-2018). His research interests include but not limited to: Knowledge engineering, Ontology Engineering, Semantic Interoperability, Semantic Web and the Web of Things. His latest research interest focus on Semantic Interoperability in the Web of Things and Ontology-based Data Integration (OBDA). He has published more than 60 peer-reviewed papers in international journals (incl. IJDST, KAIS, ILE, IJKEDM, FGCS, IEEE IS, IJWGS, IJMSO, Applied AI), in international conferences (incl. ESWC, ISWC, KSEM, IJCAI, VLDB) and in books. Recently, Microsoft’s Academic Research and Google Scholar portals reported an h-index of 16 (more than 1000 citations). Dr. Kotis is a member of the Hellenic Artificial Intelligence Company (EETN). In addition, he has served as a reviewer in several international journals and also as a member of conferences’ program committees (incl. IEEE IS, IEEE TKDE, KAIS, JWS, J.UCS, IJDMMM, ICTAI, IJCAI). He has also served as a guest editor in an international journal, as an organizer and chair of an international workshop (i-SEEK), and a co-organizer of an Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative (OAEI) contest track in 2011. In Nov. 2011 he has been selected among 222 candidates world-wide and awarded an one-year ERCIM “Allain Bensoussan” fellowship at post-doc level, working on ‘semantic interoperability and smart environments’ at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. Finally, he has been participating in ERCIM Research Exchange and ERASMUS LLP-teaching programs (Poland-University of Zielona Góra, Austria-TUW@DIS group, Switzerland-UZH@DDIS group). Since Feb. 2013 he is also working for University of Piraeus (Digital Systems Dept.) as a post-doctoral research associate (Semantic Web position @ AI-group). He has also participated in several national and international projects, including among them, Grid4All (FP7, 2008), iCore (FP7, 2012), Internet of Things (Finnish Tivit/Tekes, 2012), AMINESS (Greek, Research & Technology General Secretary. 2014), datAcron (H2020), Time Machine (H2020).

He has also worked for a short term period as a Sr. Researcher at the Dept. of Computer Science (CBL) of the Univ. of Houston, TX, USA (2017-18).

Latest (24/12/2018-today): Full-time Assist. Professor at the Dept. of Cultural Technology and Communication, Univ. of the Aegean (Lesvos island), Intelligent Systems Lab (http://i-lab.aegean.gr).
