Abraham Matta received his Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Maryland at College Park in 1995. He is a professor of computer science at Boston University. His research involves transport and routing protocols for the Internet and wireless networks; feedback-based control design and analysis; architectures for protocol design and large-scale traffic management; modeling and performance evaluation. He published over 100 refereed technical papers, and was guest co-editor of three special journal issues. He received the National Science Foundation CAREER award in 1997. His current projects include recursive network architectures and formal methods for safe compositions of network services. He is the Technical Program Chair of the IEEE ICCCN 2011 Track on Network Algorithms and Performance Evaluation, Co-chair of the IEEE Computer Communications Workshop (CCW) 2011, and Co-chair of the NSF/PNNL CyberCARD 2011 Track on Trustworthy Cyber-Physical Systems and Infrastructures. He served on many program committees, including for ICNP, CoNEXT, INFOCOM and MobiCom. He was on the Editorial Board of the Computer Networks Journal. His prior service includes General Chair of WiOpt¹06, Technical Program Co-chair of ICNP¹05, Internet Co-chair of INFOCOM¹05, Publication Chair of INFOCOM¹03, co-organizer and Technical Program Co-chair of the EU-US NeXtworking¹03. He is a senior member of both the ACM and the IEEE.
