Pedro Garcia is professor at the Computer Engineering and Mathematics Department at the University Rovira i Virgili (Spain) and IEEE Member. He obtained his PhD in 2003 in the University of Murcia about Collaborative Distributed Systems under the guidance of Antonio F. Gomez Skarmeta. During his PhD he also worked in the University of Ghent (Belgium) with Hans Vangheluwe and in Fraunhofer-FIT Bonn (Germany) with Wolfgang Appelt (BSCW team). His research topics are distributed systems, peer-to-peer, cloud storage, software architectures and middleware and collaborative environments. He has published more than 30 papers and participated in several spanish and european research projects. He currently leads in Tarragona the "Architectures and Telematic Services" research group and coordinates the FP7 European project "CloudSpaces". He also coordinates the URV team in the projects RealCloud and DELFIN. He is an active member of the P2P research community: Steering Committee Member of IEEE P2P, General Chair of IEEE P2P'12, PC Member of IEEE P2P (2008-20011),chair of the IEEE Collaborative Peer-to-Peer Systems Workshop (COPS 2009,2009,2010).
