Marc Sánchez-Artigas received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science in 2009 from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF), Spain. During his Ph.D. studies, he worked at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). In the same year, he joined the Universitat Rovira i Virgili, where he currently works as a Serra-Hunter Associate Professor. He received the Best Paper Award from IEEE LCN’07 and the Best Dataset Award from ACM IMC’15. He has published 80+ articles in important venues such as IEEE P2P, ACM/IFIP Middleware, IEEE ICDCS, IEEE ICDE, IEEE INFOCOM and USENIX FAST, among others. During the years, he has participated in multiple research European projects (CloudSpaces, IOStack, CloudButton, EXTRACT, NearData) and European mobility networks (CloudStars), and coordinated the Horizon Europe project CloudSkin (grant no. 101092646). He also has actively been involved in the coordination of several Spanish projects in Cloud and Edge Computing. Further, he also helped with the coordination of the project CloudLess under the umbrella of the UNICO R&D Cloud program, through which Spanish companies participating in the Important Project of Common European Interest (IPCEI) for next-generation Cloud and Edge services and infrastructure (IPCEI-CIS) will be supported. He has also acted as an evaluator of Spanish research and transference projects for AEI and CDTI. He has been a technical program committee of several conferences and workshops on systems such as IEEE P2P, ACM SYSTOR, IPDPS, and Euro-Par, among others, and served as Guest Editor in the Computer Networks Journal, Elsevier. He has also organized various scientific national and international conferences and workshops.
