Sprechstunden nach Vereinbarung
Erich Schikuta is Professor of Computer Science at the Research Group Workflow Systems and Technology at the University of Vienna.
His research interests are in the area of Information and Database Systems, Parallel and Distributed Computing, Cloud Computing, and Neural Networks.
Erich Schikuta studied Computer Science, Business Informatics and Mathematics at the University of Technology Vienna (UTV) and the University of Vienna (UV), and finished with a Bachelor in Mathematics, and a Master and Ph.D. in CS from the UTV. After graduation he was Scholar at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS) in Vienna followed by a position as Assistant Professor at the UV. His research interests then were in the area of database technologies, which is reflected in his Ph.D. thesis (1987). In 1992 and 1993 he was Research Scholar at the Center for Research and Parallel Computation (CRPC) in Houston, Texas, USA, where he re-focused his research area to parallel and distributed systems. During this stay he was invited member to the Message Passing Interface standardization forum, which resulted in the co-authorship of the MPI Standard. In Austria at the UV he got awarded the Habilitation (venia legendi) with a collection on Advanced Database Concepts in 1996. This was followed by the promotion to Associate Professor at the UV in 1997. In the following he was on leave to University of California, San Diego, the CERN in Geneva, and the ELTE University in Budapest. Back at the UV, besides his research and teaching duties, he held various administrative positions at the UV, amongst others he was head of the Curricular Commission of CS and (founding) Vice Dean of the Faculty of Computer Science. At the moment he is Vice Head of the Research Group Workflow Systems and Technology.
His research interests are now in the area of Information and Database Systems, Parallel and Distributed Computing, Cloud Computing and Neural Network Simulation. He is author of about 200 peer-reviewed papers and was ranked the 25th most productive Cloud Computing researcher worldwide recently. The main impact of his work in the area of CS was, beside his work on MPI, the establishment and labelling of the research area of Grid Clustering methods, which set ground for a number of highly renowned clustering and data mining algorithms. His expertise is reflected by his appointment as expert evaluator and reviewer of the European Commission (FP5, FP6, FP7, and H2020) and several other European research and funding organizations (e.g. INRIA). Further he has been a member and chair of hundreds of program committees of conferences.
