Bio

Spyros Reveliotis's research interests are in discrete event systems theory and its applications, especially as it applies in the coordination of the resource allocation function that takes place in many modern technological applications. Some examples of such applications are the workflow management of flexibly automated production systems, the real-time traffic management of robotic fleets that share the same guidepath network or a free-ranging motion area, the monitoring and coordination of internet-facilitated workflows, and the lock allocation in the parallel programs that are developed in the context of the current multi-core computer architectures. The extensive automation of the aforementioned applications, when combined with their large-scale nature and the operational flexibility that is requested from them, require the development of sophisticated operational policies that will guarantee, both, behavioral correctness and operational efficiency. Reveliotis's work aims at developing the formal models and the rigorous analytical and synthesis tools that will support the development of the aforementioned policies, while controlling effectvely the underlying computational and operational complexities.

After completing his Ph.D. studies in industrial engineering at the University of Illinois, Reveliotis joined Georgia Tech in 1996. He is a senior member of IEEE, a member of IIE and INFORMS and a registered engineer with the Technical Chamber of Greece. He has served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Robotics and Automation, for the IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering, and the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control. He was the 1998 recipient of the Kayamori Best Paper Award for the IEEE Intl. Conference on Robotics and Automation, and in 2009 he was the Program Chair for the IEEE Conference on Automation Science and Engineering.
