This section mailny lists my involvement to conferences from 2009 and on as member of the TPC (mainly). Other activities such as reviewing papers for journals, invitations for presentations, etc. are omitted. Some older stuff can be found here.



I'm also involved in the following European projects. More information about these and other national projects can be found here.


  • Principal investigator for the European Project SafeCity (Duration 2 years, ends April 2013, Funding 320K Euros).
  • Principal investigator for the European Project Lotus (Duration 3 years, ends December 2011, Funding 284K Euros).


I'm also the regular organizer of PRACSE. More information about this event can be found here.





[Added Sep 2008] The following section is EXTREMELY OUTDATED and apologize for this… My current activities involve consulting, reviewing papers and articles, serving as committee member in various conferences and fora, organizing workshops and delivering invited presentations for issues related to security, participating in national and European projects again with emphasis in security, and so on…
