Short CV

Georgios Chalkiadakis is an Associate Professor at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Technical University of Crete (TUC). His research interests are in the areas of multiagent systems, algorithmic game theory, and machine learning; and more specifically, in coalition formation, decision making under uncertainty, reinforcement learning in multiagent domains, and in designing mechanisms and intelligent software systems for the Smart Grid. His PhD thesis (University of Toronto, 2007) was nominated for the IFAAMAS-2007 Victor Lesser Distinguished Dissertation Award. Georgios is a co-author of the graduate level textbook “Computational Aspects of Cooperative Game Theory” (Morgan and Claypool, 2011). He has also co-authored three book chapters in scientific collections, and has published more than 50 research papers in top international conferences and journals, and has over the years participated in many research projects. Georgios has served as an editorial board member of the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (JAIR), as a senior program committee or program committee member for several top international conferences, and as a reviewer for several top journals in his areas of expertise. Since March 2018, he is the Deputy Chair of the Board of Directors of the European Association for Multi-Agent Systems (EURAMAS); from Jan 2015 to Dec 2018, he served as the General Secretary of the Hellenic Artificial Intelligence Society (EETN). Before joining TUC, he was a Research Fellow at the School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton, UK. Georgios has also worked as a software engineer at the Institute of Computer Science of the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas, and as a teacher of informatics in Greek high schools.
