Biography: Dr. Yong Zhao got his PhD degree at the University of Chicago under the supervision of Professor Ian Foster-“Father of Grid Computing”. He also interned at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center and Argonne National Laboratory during PhD study.
After graduation, he worked at the search and advertisement division at Microsoft where he devoted himself to the development of the advertising system based on Microsoft’s Cloud platform for which he won Microsoft Gold Star Award. His work involves in cloud computing, grid computing, data intensive computing, extreme large scale computing, and grid workflow. He has published more than 40 papers in international computer books, journals and conferences, which are referenced more than 4000 times; in addition he also translated and edited 8 books. He has chaired/co-chaired ACM/IEEE Workshop on Many Task Computing on Grids Clouds and Supercomputers, Workshop on Data Intensive Computing in the Clouds, and IEEE International Workshop on CloudFlow 2012, 2013. In addition, he has been a member of the program committees for over 20 top academic conferences and a guest editor for IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Computing.
