My current research agenda:
My research focus is on Internet Technologies and I am head of the Distributed Systems Group. In particular, my interests are in Service-oriented Architectures and Computing, Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing, Complex-, Autonomic-, and Adaptive Systems, and Context-aware Computing including all aspects related to collaborative systems (e.g., Workflow technologies). A more recent thread of research interest concerns data services and novel programing models for Computational Science and Engineering.

Schahram Dustdar is Full Professor of Computer Science (Informatics) with a focus on Internet Technologies heading the Distributed Systems Group. From 2004-2010 he is Honorary Professor of Information Systems at the Department of Computing Science at the University of Groningen (RuG), The Netherlands. Since 2009 he is an ACM Distinguished Scientist. Recipient of the IBM Faculty Award 2012. He received his M.Sc. (1990) and PhD. degrees (1992) in Business Informatics (Wirtschaftsinformatik) from the University of Linz, Austria. In April 2003 he received his Habilitation degree (Venia Docendi) for his work on Process-aware Collaboration Systems - Architectures and Coordination Models for Virtual Teams. His work experience includes several years as the founding head of the Center for Informatics (ZID) at the University of Art and Industrial Design in Linz (1991-1999), Austrian project manager of the MICE EU-project (1993 - 97), and director of Coordination Technologies at the Design Transfer Center in Linz (1999 - 2000). While on sabbatical leave he was a post-doctoral research scholar (Erwin-Schrödinger scholarship) at the London School of Economics (Information Systems Department) (1993 and 1994), and a visiting research scientist at NTT Multimedia Communications Labs in Palo Alto, USA during 1998. From 2007 - 2009 he was Chair of the IFIP Working Group 6.4 on Internet Applications Engineering and a founding member of the Scientific Academy of Service Technology.
From 1999 - 2007 he worked as the co-founder and chief scientist of Caramba Labs Software AG (CarambaLabs.com) in Vienna (acquired by Engineering NetWorld AG), a venture capital co-funded software company focused on software for collaborative processes in teams. Caramba Labs was nominated for several (international and national) awards: World Technology Award in the category of Software (2001); Top-Startup companies in Austria (Cap Gemini Ernst & Young) (2002); MERCUR Innovationspreis der Wirtschaftskammer (2002). From 2006-2012, Prof. Dustdar was on the management board of the Association of the alumni of the TU Wien.
He has published some 380 scientific papers as conference-, journal-, and book contributions. He has written 3 academic books as well as one professional book. His latest book, co-authored with H. Gall and M. Hauswirth, is on software architectures for distributed systems (2003), Springer-Verlag. In 1997 he co-authored a book on Multimedia Information Systems, Kluwer and co-edited the book Telekooperation in Unternehmen, Gabler Verlag. He has published in various journals including ACM Transactions on Internet Technology, ACM Transactions on the Web, Distributed and Parallel Databases, Data and Knowledge Engineering, Journal of Grid Computing, WWW Journal, IEEE Multimedia, Business Process Management Journal, Journal of Systems Architecture, Journal of Organizational Computing, Kluwer Multimedia Tools and Applications, Wirtschaftsinformatik, Journal of Computing and Information Technology, IEEE Internet Computing, Journal of Applied Sciences, International Journal of Web Information Systems, International Journal of Computational Science and Engineering, International Journal of Next-Generation Computing, IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Services Computing. He co-organized several scientific workshops and conferences (e.g., (e.g. MW4SOC 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 Workshop of the Middleware Conference; SEE 2010 colocated with ICSOC 2010; CEC-PAW10 as part of BPM 2010; ESW 2010 at ICWE 2010; WEWST 2008 at ECOWS 2008; PM4HDPS 2008 colocated with BPM 2008; ICSOC 2007; BPM 2006; ECOWS 2006: DILOS 2006 colocated with ARES 2006; BPS 2005 in conjunction with BPM 2005; DiSD 2005 colocated with RE; Teamware colocated with SAINT; CSSE colocated with ASE; UMICS 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, colocated with CAiSE; DMC 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008 colocated with IEEE WETICE) and has been serving on more than 533 international program committees as well as on editorial boards of 19 scientific journals. His research interests include collaborative computing, workflow systems, Internet technologies, software architecture, distributed systems, distributed multimedia systems, and mobile collaboration systems. He is charter member of the Association of Information Systems (AIS), member of the IEEE Computer society, ACM, GI, and Austrian Computer Society. He was an invited expert evaluator for the IST 6th Framework (FP6) of the European Commission, an invited expert for the 7th Framework roadmap definitions for several working groups, as well as a Technical Expert for the roadmap definition for the European Commission's resarch on the Future Internet. He has been a scientific reviewer for the European Research Council (ERC) as well as a number of National Science Foundations (e.g., DFG (Germany), NWO (Netherlands), SNF (Switzerland), EPSRC (UK), SFI (Ireland), Czech Science Foundation (GA CR), NSERC (Canada), FWO (Research Foundation Flanders, Belgium), FCT (Foundation for Science and Technology, Portugal), Einstein Foundation Berlin (Germany).
