Prof Dr Satoshi Matsuoka, BSc, MSc

Satoshi Matsuoka received his BSc, MSc, and PhD from the Information Science Department of the University of Tokyo in 1986, 1988, and 1993, respectively.
He became an Assistant Professor at the Information Engineering Department at the University of Tokyo in 1993, and moved on to the Associate Professorship position at the Department of Mathematical and Computing Sciences, Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1996. He is now a full Professor at the Global Scientific Information and Computing Center (GSIC) of Tokyo Institute of Technology (Titech) and since April 2001, leads the Problem Solving Environment Group which oversees the supercomputng needs of the Titech campus.
His primary interests are high-performance software systems in general, including large-scale commodity clustering, global-scale "Grid" computing, as well as use of object-oriented technologies in high-performance settings. His current research projects include (1) the Ninf project, a high-performance GridRPC system in collaboration with AIST, Japan, (2) Plug&Play clustering project scaling clusters to hundreds of thousands of nodes, (3) the GFarm project which aims to achieve Petascale data processing on a federation of storage clusters on the Grid for data intensive application such as high-energy physics, as well as (4) the Java OpenJIT project, which applies reflection technology to a Java Just-In-Time compiler for parallel platform-specific customisation and optimisation.
He has been program- and general Chair of various international conferences including ISOTAS'96, ECOOP'97, ISCOPE'99, and Reflection'2001, and was program Chair of the ACM OOPSLA'2002 and the IEEE CCGrid 2003. He has been a Steering Group member of the Global Grid Forum since 1999. He received the Sakai award for research excellence from the Information Processing Society of Japan in 1999. He is a member of ACM and IEEE Computer Society, as well as having served or serving on several editorial committees of international journals.
