Brief Bio
Erik Elmroth is Professor and Head of the Department of Computing Science at Umeå University and co-founder of Elastisys AB. He has established the Umeå University research on distributed systems, focusing on theory, algorithms, and systems for the autonomous management of ICT resources, spanning from individual servers to large scale cloud datacenters, federated clouds, highly distributed edge clouds, and software-defined infrastructures. Elmroth has vast experience from leading roles in major research programs, currently including the 550 million euro Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP); the 30 million euro eSSENCE programme; and leading 2 projects funding 18 postdoc researchers by the Kempe Foundations. He received the Nordea Scientific Award 2011. Pre-historic highlights include being co-winner of the SIAM Linear Algebra Prize 2000, for the most outstanding linear algebra publication world-wide (in any journal) during the preceding 3-year period. Elmroth is member of the Swedish Royal Academy for Engineering Sciences and Vice Chair for its Division on Information Technology. Previously, he was the Chair of the Board of the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) and Chair of Swedish Research Council's expert group on e-science. International experiences include a year at NERSC, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, University of California, Berkeley, and one semester at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA.
