Albert Y. Zomaya is a Full Professor and Deputy-Head in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department at the University of Western Australia where he heads the Parallel Computing Research Laboratory. He received his PhD from the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering, Sheffield University in the United Kingdom. Professor Zomaya held visiting positions in 1996-'97 at the Department of Computer Science, Waterloo University and the Department of Computer Science, University of Missouri-Rolla.
The author/co-author of more than 100 publications in technical journals, collaborative books, and conferences. He is an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems , the IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics , the International Journal on Parallel and Distributed Systems and Networks, the Future Generation Computer Systems Journal, Journal of Interconnection Networks, and International Journal of Foundations of Computer Science. He is also the editor-in-chief of the Wiley Book Series on Parallel and Distributed Computing .
Professor Zomaya is the author of Modelling and Simulation of Robot Manipulators: A Parallel-Processing Approach (World Scientific Publishing, 1992), the co-author (with P.M. Mills and M.O. Tade') of Neuro-adaptive Process Control: A Practical Approach (Wiley, 1996), the co-author (with M.C. Gill) of Obstacle Avoidance in Multi-Robot Systems: Experiments in Parallel Genetic Algorithms (World Scientific Publishing, 1998), the co-author (with S. Salleh) of Scheduling in Parallel Computing Systems: Fuzzy and Annealing Techniques (Kluwer, 1999), and the co-author (with Fox and Jennings) of Constrained Dynamics Computations: Models and Case Studies (World Scientific Pub, 2000).
He is also the editor of Parallel Computing: Paradigms and Applications (International Thomson Computer Press, 1996), the editor-in-Chief of the Parallel and Distributed Computing Handbook (McGraw-Hill, 1996), and the co-editor (with Ercal and Olariu) of Solutions to Parallel and Distributed Computing Problems: Lessons from Biological Sciences (Wiley, 2001).
Professor Zomaya is on the executive board of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) committee on Algorithms and Architectures for Real-Time Control and the IEEE Task Force on Cluster Computing , and he is the Chair of the IEEE Technical Committee on Parallel Processing . He was awarded the 1997 Edgeworth David Medal by the Royal Society of New South Wales for outstanding contributions to Australian Science. In September 2000 he was awarded the IEEE Computer Society's Meritorious Service Award.
Professor Zomaya is the founding co-chair of the Workshop on Bio-Inspired Solutions to Parallel Processing Pro blems (BioSP3) . He is the Program Vice-Chair (for Mobile and Wireless) of the International Conference on Parallel Processing (ICPP-2002) (Vancouver, 2002) the Program Vice-Chair of the International Symposium on Parallel Architectures, Algorithms, and Networs (ISPAN) (Manila, 2002), Program Vice Chair for the First IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the Grid (CCGrid 2001) (Brisbane, 2001), Stream Chair of the Tenth International Conference on Computing and Information (ICCI 2000) (Kuwait, 2000), the Program Vice-Chair of the International Conference on Parallel Processing (ICPP-2000) (Toronto, 2000), the General Chair of the International Symposium on Parallel Architectures, Algorithms, and Networks (ISPAN) (Perth, 1999), the Program Vice-Chair of the Second International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing and Networks (PDCN'98) (Brisbane, 1998), Vice-Chair of the 11th International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing Systems (Chicago, 1998), Vice Chair of the High Performance Computing Conference (HiPC'97) (Banglore, 1997).
He served on the advisory board and program committees of several national and international conferences. He is a chartered engineer and a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical Engineers (U.K.), a senior member of the IEEE, member of the ACM, American Association for the Advancement of Science, New York Academy of Science, and Sigma Xi.
