Dr. Anastasios C. Politis is an Assistant Professor at the Dept. of Information, Computer &
Telecommunications Engineering of the International Hellenic University, Serres, Greece.
He received his BEng in Electronic and
Electrical Engineering from the University of Surrey, UK, in
1997 with Honors. He then continued his studies at the
University of Patras, Greece, at the Dept. of Electrical
Engineering and Computer Technology from where he
graduated in 1999. He completed his postgraduate studies
in 2001 by receiving his MSc in Integrated Hardware and
Software Systems from the Dept. of Computer Engineering and Informatics at the same University.
His postgraduate Thesis focused on improving TCP's performance over wireless links, and was completed in
association with the telecommunications company Intracom S.A. In 2011, he received his PhD from the
Dept. of Applied Informatics at the University of Macedonia, Thessaloniki, Greece.
His Thesis focused on efficient multimedia transmission over wireless local area networks.
He has been the Scientific Coordinator of several research projects supported by the Research and Educational Committee of the University,
in the field of protocol enhancements for wireless networks and wireless fraud detection.
He is the author and co-author of one book in the area of computer networking, and has published more than 20 research papers
in scientific journals and international conference proceedings. He also serves as a member of the editorial board and TPCs in
scientific journals and conferences.
He organised and administrates the local Cisco Networking Academy at the Dept. of Information, Computer &
Telecommunications Engineering of the International Hellenic University.
He holds professional certifications from Cisco (CCENT/CCNA), the Fiber Optics Association (FOA) and Konnex Association (KNX).
He is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the Technical Chamber of Greece (TEE) and
FITCE (Federation of Telecommunications Engineers of the European Community).
His research interests include wireless communication protocols, QoS provisioning in wireless local area networks and protocol engineering.
