Erol Gelenbe, FACM, FIEEE, FRSS, FIET, FIFIP is Professor at the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Informatics of the Polish Academy of Sciences where he Coordinates the EU H2020 Research and Innovation Action SerIoT. He graduated 87 PhD students. As Dennis Gabor Professor in the EEE Dept. (2003-2019) he graduated 26 PhDs. A citizen of France and Turkey, listed in the top 15 researchers in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering in the UK. he was elected Foreign Fellow of the Royal Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters of Belgium (2015), Foreign Fellow of the Polish Science Academy (2013), Honorary Fellow of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (2010), Fellow of the National Academy of Technologies of France (2008), the Science Academy of Turkey (Bilim Akademisi) (2012), and Academia Europaea (2005). He is founding Editor-in-Chief of Springer-Nature Computer Science. His recent keynotes include: (i) Product form solution of tightly coupled G-networks, (ii) Saving Energy with Future Quantum Technologies, (iii) Lack of Security Violates Quality of Service, (iv) The Energy Packet Network Framework for Optimising Energy Consumption with Quality of Service. His comments on cybersecurity were broadcast live on the BBC Evening News, 26th June 2017. His publications are listed here. Winner of several international prizes including the Grand Prix France Telecom of the French Academy of Sciences (1992), the ACM SIGMETRICS Life-Time Achievement Award (2008), the "In Memoriam Dennis Gabor Award (2013)" of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and NOVAFER Foundation of Hungary, the Mustafa Prize (2017), and "Honoris Causa" Doctorates by the Universities of Rome II (1986), Bogazici Istanbul (2004) and Liege, Belgium (2006), the REF 2014 evaluation of British Universities recognised the Intelligent Systems and Networks group, which Erol headed at Imperial from 2004-2016, as having "the highest proportion of world leading outputs" in Imperial's EEE Dept., which was Ranked 1st by REF 2014 in the field of Electrical & Electronic Engineering in the UK. Renowned for inventing and applying mathematical models of computer systems and networks, and pioneering research on Computer and Network Performance, Erol invented mathematical models such as G-networks, and the Random Neural Network and established their product-form asymptotic solutions. He has over 22,700 citations with H = 86. His numerous industry collaborations have resulted in commercial products such as QNAP (Simulog, ASTEK), the first European software package for System Performance Analysis, the FLEXSIM (Flexsim) manufacturing system simulation tool, the SYCOMORE (Thales) Voice Packet Switch, and the C2Agents (QinetiQ) Command and Control Decision Aid. Described by E&T Magazine as a "true IT Innovator", Erol won IET's 2010 Oliver Lodge Medal in the UK. The ACM SIGMETRICS 2008 Life-Time Achievement Award stated that Erol he is "the single individual who, over a span of 30 years, has made the greatest overall contribution to the field of Computer System and Network Performance Evaluation". Other science awards and engineering include: - 2013 "In Memoriam Dennis Gabor Award" of the Hungarian Academy of Science for outstanding science with significant innovation content, from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (Gabor was the 1971 Nobel Laureate in Physics). - 1996 France-Telecom Prize of the French Academy of Sciences, - 1994 Parlar Foundation Science Award of Turkey. Erol has invented and obtained exact solutions, known as "product forms", to powerful mathematical models for complex system analysis, such as G-Networks and the Random Neural Network (RNN). Product forms correspond to cases where the mean fields provide exact solutions. G-networks and the RNN have non-linear mean fields.
