Javier Campos was born in Jaca (Spain) in 1963. He received an M.Sc. degree in applied mathematics and a Ph.D. degree in systems engineering and computer science (with Extraordinary Doctorate Award) from the University of Zaragoza, Spain, in 1986 and 1990, respectively. In 1986 he joined the Dept. of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Zaragoza. He was the Director of the Master’s Degree in Computer Science from 1993 to 1997 and the Director of the Computer Science and Systems Engineering Dept. from 2001 to 2003. In 2005, Dr. Campos was appointed Full Professor at the same Department, after winning one of the first two national competitive habilitation positions announced. He has been awarded with six five-years-teaching bonuses by the University of Zaragoza and four six-years-research bonuses by the National Commission for the Evaluation of Research Activity.
His research interests include modelling and performance evaluation of distributed and concurrent systems, Petri nets, software performance engineering, and performance modelling of manufacturing systems and telecommunication systems. He has supervised the completion of more than a hundred Master Thesis and three PhDs. Since 1989 he has co-authored about one hundred papers published in refereed journals and conferences. He has been plenary session invited speaker and tutorial invited speaker at several important meetings as the IEEE International Workshop on Petri Nets and Performance Models, the International Conference on Application of Concurrency to System Design, and the International Conference on Application and Theory of Petri Nets and Other Models of Concurrency. He has served on the Program Committee, sometimes as the Chair, of several international conferences as the International Conference on Quantitative Evaluation of Systems, the European Performance Engineering Workshop, the International Workshop on Software and Performance, the IEEE Conference on Automation Science and Engineering or the IEEE International Conference on Emerging Technologies and Factory Automation. He has been Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics, Guest Editor of a Special Section on Formal Methods in Manufacturing for the same Journal, and Editor of a Special Issue on Quantitative Evaluation of Systems for the Leibniz Transactions on Embedded Systems journal. He is Co-Editor of the book Formal Methods in Manufacturing.
Dr. Campos is a Founding Member of the Aragón Institute for Engineering Research, a member of the Aragonese Informatics Engineering Association, and a Founding member of the Spanish Concurrent and Distributed Computing Society. He is a member of the Steering Committee of the International Conference on Quantitative Evaluation of SysTems (QEST). He has been President of the Spanish Concurrent and Distributed Computing Society, a member of the IEEE IES Technical Committee on Factory Automation, and Co-Chair of the IEEE IES Technical Sub-Committee on Industrial Automated Systems and Controls.
