Albert Y. Zomaya is currently the Chair Professor of High Performance Computing and Networking in the School of Information Technologies, The University of Sydney. He is the author/co-author of seven books, more than 350 publications in technical journals and conferences, and the editor of eight books and eight conference volumes. He is currently an associate editor for 16 journals including some of the leading journals in his field such as the IEEE Transactions on Computers, IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems and the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing. Professor Zomaya is the Founding Editor of the Wiley Book Series on Parallel and Distributed Computing and a Founding Co-Editor of the Wiley Book Series on Bioinformatics. He was the Chair the IEEE Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (1999–2003) and currently serves on its executive committee. He also serves on the Advisory Board of the IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing and IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society Technical Committee on Self-Organization and Cybernetics for Informatics and is a Scientific Council Member of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social–Informatics, and Telecommunications Engineering (in Brussels). Professor Zomaya is the recipient of the Meritorious Service Award (in 2000) and the Golden Core Recognition (in 2006), both from the IEEE Computer Society. He is a Chartered Engineer (CEng), a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the IEEE, the Institution of Engineering and Technology (U.K.), and a Distinguished Engineer of the ACM. His research interests are in the areas of high performance computing, distributed systems, parallel algorithms, mobile computing, and bioinformatics.
