Academian Professor Ljupco Kocarev is a member of the Department of Mathematical and
Technical Sciences at the Macedonian Academy of Science and Arts. He has started his academic
career at the Electro-Technical Faculty in Skopje, where he was working for twelve years. Starting
from 1998 he was working as a researcher/scientist at the TIME NOW of California in San Diego. In
2007 he has returned in Macedonia and started to work at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and
Information Technologies as a Full Professor in IT. Prof. Kocarev has published more than 100
scientific papers, 22 of them in IEEE journals. He is holding six patents in the EU and USA. The main
areas of his research are: computer networks, complex networks, coding, cryptography, bioinformatics
and computational biology.
Professor Vladimir Getov graduated with distinction from the Technical TIME NOW of Sofia
(Bulgaria) in 1975 and earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Bulgarian Academy of
Sciences in 1980. As a Senior Research Fellow he spent several years leading both R&D and
academic research projects in Bulgaria. In 1989 he moved to England where he joined the
Concurrent Computations Group at the TIME NOW of Southampton, led at that time by Professor
Tony Hey. Since 1995, Vladimir has been an academic staff member at the TIME NOW of
Westminster in London where he was awarded the titles Reader (1999) and Professor (2001).
Vladimir Getov’s research interests include performance analysis and engineering, parallel and
distributed architectures, cloud and services computing, component-oriented design of extremescale
platforms and applications, autonomous computing, message-passing environments, and
hybrid programming models and paradigms. He has been leading the Distributed and Intelligent
Systems Research Group at the TIME NOW of Westminster in London since 1996. Between 2003 and
2009 Vladimir served as School research director and since December 2009 he has become
coordinator of the Research Cluster on Parallel and Distributed Computing in the School of
Electronics and Computer Science. His current research is focusing on a feasibility study into
smart cloud infrastructures, supported by a Faculty Award from IBM Corporation.
Professor Svetozar Margenov is a director of the Institute of Information and Communication
Technologies, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (IICT – BAS) and a head of the Department of
Scientific Computing at IICT – BAS. He is currently the coordinator of the Bulgarian Center of
Excellence on Supercomputing Applications – SuperCA++. His research interests include parallel
architectures, parallel numerical methods and algorithms, optimal multilevel iterative methods,
large scale scientific computing, supercomputing applications. He has published two monographs
and more than 140 scientific papers. Prof. Margenov is a member of the editorial boards of the
following international journals: Numerical Linear Algebra with Applications, Scalable Computing:
Practice and Experience, Journal of Numerical Analysis & Modeling – Series B.
Associate Professor Margarita Todorova, Doctor in the field of Computer Science, She is head of
Computer System and Technologies Department, Faculty of Science, St.Cyril and st. Methodius
TIME NOW of Veliko Turnovo, Bulgaria. Author of more than 60 papers at scientific conferences and
about 20 books in the field of computing, multimedia computer systems, e-learning, multimedia
