Dr. Zbigniew 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. Currently, he is a lead researcher on the project to explore and develop high availability and security infrastructure capable of managing redundant resources to foil reliability and security threats, detect errors in both the user applications and the infrastructure components, and recover quickly from failures when they occur. 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).

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 has been 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.
