Dr. Zbigniew T. Kalbarczyk is Research Professor at the Coordinated Science Laboratory of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Kalbarczyk’s research interests are in the area of design and validation of reliable and secure computing systems. His current work explores emerging technologies, such as resource virtualization to provide redundancy and assure system resiliency to accidental errors and malicious attacks. Dr. Kalbarczyk’s research involves also analysis of data on failures and security attacks in large computing systems, and development of techniques for automated validation and benchmarking of dependable and secure computing systems using formal (e.g., model checking) and experimental methods (e.g., fault/attack injection).
Dr. Kalbarczyk has consulted with and advised industry and government agencies, including major computing vendors such as IBM, Motorola, and SUN, Huawei and Infosys Technologies and agencies, e.g., DARPA, NSF, and JPL-NASA. He is the co-founder of Armored Computing Inc., an Illinois company that develops: (i) software-only solutions for providing high availability and security monitoring, and (ii) tools for benchmarking of highly available and secure computing systems and applications.
He served as a program Chair of Dependable Computing and Communication Symposium (DCCS), a track of the International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN) 2007 and Program Co-Chair of Computer Performance and Dependability Symposium, a track of the DSN 2002. He is an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing. Dr. Kalbarczyk has published over 130 technical papers and is regularly invited to give tutorials and lectures on issues related to design and assessment of complex computing systems. He is a member of the IEEE, the IEEE Computer Society, and IFIP Working Group 10.4 on Dependable Computing and Fault Tolerance.
