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
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
