Dr. Ivona Brandic is Assistant Professor at the Distributed Systems Group, Information Systems Institute, Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien). Prior to that, she was Assistant Professor at the Department of Scientific Computing, Vienna University. She received her PhD degree from Vienna University of Technology in 2007. From 2003 to 2007 she participated in the special research project AURORA - Advanced Models, Applications and Software Systems for High Performance Computing and the European Union's GEMSS - Grid-Enabled Medical Simulation Services project. She was involved in the European Union's SCube project and she led the Austrian national FoSII - Foundations of Self-governing ICT Infrastructures project funded by the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF). She is management committee member of the European Commission's COST Action on Energy Efficient Large Scale Distributed Systems. From June to August 2008 she was visiting researcher at the University of Melbourne, Australia. Dr. Brandic is on the Editorial Board of the IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing and the Springer Journal on Scalable Computing.
In 2011 she received the Distinguished Young Scientist Award from the Vienna University of Technology for her HALEY project on Holistic Energy Efficient Hybrid Clouds. Her interests comprise Service Level Agreement and Quality of Service management in large scale distributed systems, autonomic computing, workflow management for scientific applications, and energy efficient large scale distributed systems (Cloud, Grid, Cluster, etc.). 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 future research directions of the EU. In 2010 she chaired the International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing held in Chennai, India. She has been serving more than 50 program committees (among others EuroPar, COMPSAC, CloudCom) and was invited reviewer of more than 10 international journals. In 2011 she edited two special issues for Future Generation Computer Systems (Elsevier) and Scientific Programming Journal (IOS Press). I. Brandic has been invited expert evaluator of the European Commission, French National Research Organization (ANR), National Science and Engineering Research Council Canada (NSERC) and Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO).
