Hallo! Grüezi!

In October 2012, I took the big decision to move from a "mainstream" research career in computer science to a highly interdisciplinary research agenda around the project nethood, which aims to provide tools for the participatory design of hybrid urban spaces that encourage information sharing, engagement, and conviviality. At the Communication Systems Group, and under the supervision of Prof. Bernhard Plattner, I found the ideal environment for such a challenging step in my life and I hope that I will be soon ready to step fully into the nethood world! :-)


Current research

My current research is partially supported by the Network of Excellence in Internet Science. This position paper, presented at the 1st International Conference on Internet Science, Brussels, and co-authored with Ileana Apostol, summarizes some of our core ideas and long-term vision: The Neighbourhood Game: from behavioural economics to urban planning [paper, slides].

Since this presentation, we spend most of our time studying related work from different disciplines, discovering similar projects, organizing interdisciplinary events, and travelling for research visits and invited talks. We will soon present and synthesize the outcome of this phase of our work at this web site: http://nethood.org.

Photography

I love to take photos of "moments", broadly defined, as a means to capture interesting aspects of life on earth :-). As Ross Daly once said: "There are musicians that they play music for you to listen to them. And there are musicians that they play music for you to listen to it [the music]". I think that this holds for all forms of art, and I like to see myself as an amateur photographer in the latter category (but I do appreciate many artists that belong in the former).



I hope that I will find the time at some moment to organize my photos in categories and prepare more slideshows with selected photos on specific topics. These are some I prepared some time ago around a specific music piece (as from recently, due to changes at the site of ipernity, you need to open a different page to listen in parallel the music while "playing" the slideshow):




You can also try to navigate my various online accounts in various photo sharing sites like these ones: ipernity, Panayotis@flickr, panayotis@flickr, and youvarlaki@flickr (managed together with Ileana Apostol).





These are some interesting photography groups that I have created (but never found the time to properly administer and promote):
