Purpose:The CYSM system aims to aid ports to improve the security and safety posture of their cyber and physical infrastructures.
Serving this scope, the system integrates an innovative, open, collaborative, integrated, comprehensive and personalized framework that enables the ports to identify, monitor and treat their cyber and physical risks. The proposed framework incorporates a bouquet of advanced security self-management services (Collaborative Services, Content Management Services and Cyber/Physical Management Services) that support and facilitate the ports to evaluate their security and safety level. In particular, these services enable the ports to check and control their compliance with requirements and rules imposed by widely used standards, specifications, frameworks and best practices (e.g. ISPS code, and ISO-27001).
The collaboration and information sharing within the organizations as well as among the ports are the main principles of the supported self-assessment processes.

CYSM is a two year project funded by the Prevention, Preparedness and Consequence Management of Terrorism and other Security-related Risks Programme of the European Union.

The consortium members are: University of Piraeus Research Center, Singular Logic SA, University of Genoa, Piraeus Port Authority, Valencia Port Foundation.

Purpose: An interdisciplinary research activity at the University of Piraeus with focus on Data Science.
The wealth of existing data, often referenced both in space and time, enable novel classes of applications and services of high societal and economic impact. Modern applications, including social networks, scientific databases, bioinformatics, open governmental data, produce vast volumes of data that are often publicly available, although quite diverse, unrelated and raw.
This poses important challenges for next-generation data management systems, targeting to turning data into knowledge, aiming to affect many important sectors of human life.
Our goal is to address the challenging problems related to the wealth data, by advancing research and producing solutions to real world problems related to efficient and scalable management of Big Data (gathering and cleansing data, storing and indexing data, analyzing, and mining data). Our view of processing big data includes both, batch-style analytical processing and real-time processing.
Emerging issues, such as semantic- and privacy-aware querying and mining, as well as distributed processing of data and integration of data sources through scalable solutions for semantic enrichment and alignment, are in focus.

Purpose: Operators of successful Internet-scale applications invariably see the growing popularity of their services translate into the need for more data capacity, higher I/O performance, and continuous operation. Data demands have been growing exponentially in recent years and distributed data stores have been gaining popularity as a means to addressing these needs. Rather than relying on centralized storage arrays, distributed data stores consolidate large numbers of commodity servers into a single storage pool, providing large capacity and high performance at low cost over an unreliable and dynamically-changing (often cloud-based) infrastructure.
A special class of systems goes further to offer guarantees to achieve application performance goals described as Service Level Objectives (SLOs). Such systems focus on identifying the performance capabilities of available resources and then predict and provision the optimal set resources necessary to achieve the requested performance goals. Since application requirements (and thus SLOs) change over time, quality of service (QoS)-aware data stores should be able to adapt to the new requirements to comply with application expectations. A key question is to determine the appropriate adaptation actions that maintain the same application semantics (regarding durability, availability, integrity and consistency of data) model while minimizing or ideally even hiding the window of performance degradation.
In addition, there is usually a trade-off between the duration of the adaptation actions and their performance impact on the system during adaptation. Ideally, the system should be able to adapt to data growth or the workload changes as quickly as possible to satisfy application requirements. Nevertheless, the more aggressive the adaptation action the deeper its impact on application performance, exposing a key tradeoff. There are important research questions to be addressed on agile provisioning and adaptation policies for large scale distributed data stores that target to achieve SLOs or offer the best possible performance while ensuring the durability, availability, and consistency of data.
The goal of the project is to address the important research questions on agile provisioning and adaptation policies for large scale distributed data stores that target to achieve SLOs or offer the best possible performance. As a matter of fact it is required a platform that can provide resource and support the deployment of distributed data store. Multiple nodes may effectively be used during the runtime of experiments by joining (or leaving) the system providing elastic and adaptive features to the data store. During the experiment we should be able to monitor the application performance as well as the available resource utilization while the application evolves during its lifetime.

Purpose: Qualimaster project: A configurable real-time data processing infrastructure mastering autonomous quality adaptation
The growing number of fine-granular data streams opens up new opportunities for improved risk analysis, situation and evolution monitoring as well as event detection. However, there are still some major roadblocks for leveraging the full potential of data stream processing, as it would, for example, be needed the highly relevant systemic risk analysis in the financial domain.
The QualiMaster project will address those road blocks by developing novel approaches for autonomously dealing with load and need changes in large-scale data stream processing, while opportunistically exploiting the available resources for increasing analysis depth whenever possible. For this purpose, the QualiMaster infrastructure will enable autonomous proactive, reflective and cross-pipeline adaptation, in addition to the more traditional reactive adaptation. Starting from configurable stream processing pipelines, adaptation will be based on quality-aware component description, pipelines optimization and the systematic exploitation of families of approximate algorithms with different quality/performance tradeoffs. However, adaptation will not be restricted to the software level alone: We will go a level further by investigating the systematic translation of stream processing algorithms into code for reconfigurable hardware and the synergistic exploitation of such hardware-based processing in adaptive high performance large-scale data processing.
The project focuses on financial analysis based on combining financial data streams and social web data, especially for systemic risk analysis. Our user-driven approach involves two SMEs from the financial sector. Rigorous evaluation with real world data loads from the financial domain enriched with relevant social Web content will further stress the applicability of QualiMaster results.

Purpose: We propose to simulate a black hole jet impacting gas clouds in a galaxy. Our goal is to perform a theoretical study of how the propagation of a powerful, relativistic jet affects the dense gas that collapses to form new stars. Magnetohydrodynamic simulations will be run for this purpose. We will be examining the role of radiative cooling, thermal conduction, magnetic fields. We will be determining how much gas is ejected outside the potential of galaxies, and how much gas ends up in galaxy halos. The simulations will be fine tuned upon real observations of galaxies in which jets collide upon clouds and disperse them.

Purpose: In this research proposal we focus on the tele-orchestra service, the transmission of a music show where individual music organs are in different physical locations in real time. Tele-orchestra is one of the most demanding network applications requiring end-to-end delay of max 25 msec, to allow musicians to synchronize. The aim is to explore innovative ways of service support using Software-Defined Networking (SDN) principles, especially where errors can lead to failure during a remote orchestra.
The objectives of this research proposal are:
i. The transmission of Tele-orchestra between two nodes interconnected through a logical link in a wide area network (WAN) and the evaluation of service quality based on indicators such as throughput, latency, jitter, packet loss, etc.
ii. The introduction of artificial errors, such as failure / link decline in the real-time transmission of tele-orchestra between two WAN nodes, and evaluation of fail-over mechanisms. The recovery is performed through the feedback of the application from the network for any traffic change, topology, routing, and then the decision on the application, using the network information regarding audio encoding, sampling rate, internal buffer level, etc.
iii. The evaluation of the service and fail-over mechanisms in the transmission either through best-effort Internet, L2VPN tunnel, or optical path.
iv. The transmission of tele-orchestra between two or more WAN nodes, when a relay node is inserted, in a serial topology, or considering more complex star topology with more than two musicians.

Purpose: Entity Resolution in the Web of Data, using MapReduce.
There is a vast and rapidly increasing quantity of government, scientific, corporate, and crowd-sourced data published nowadays on the Web. The emerging Web of Data realizes the vision of a data-driven decision-making and is expected to play a catalyst role in the way structured information is exploited across-domains in a large scale. It offers a great potential for building innovative data products and services that create new value from already collected data by fostering active citizenship (awareness regarding greenhouse gas emissions, food supply-chains, etc.), urban sustainability (smart energy consumption, mobility, etc.), but also world-wide research according to the "fourth paradigm of science".

In particular, according to the Linked Data paradigm, real-world entities are described on the Web by interlinked data rather than documents. Data publishers are thus encouraged to describe entities using W3C standards (RDF, etc.) by naming them with HTTP URIs, so that people can access their descriptions on the Web, as well as by including links to other URIs, so that people can discover more entities (persons, places, artefacts, etc.). Due to the open and decentralized nature of the Web, real-world entities are usually described in multiple datasets using different URIs in a partial, overlapping and sometimes evolving way. Recognizing descriptions of the same real-world entity across (and sometimes within) data sources emerges as a central problem in order to increase dataset linking but also to search the Web of data for entities and their relations (e.g., persons, things, events, places, etc.).

Purpose: Operating Systems Lab course at Computer Science Lab of School of Electrical and Electrical Engineering.
The aim of the course is the practical consolidation and understanding of issues related to the design and implementation of mechanisms for modern operating systems.
The course includes laboratory exercises, where students are required to develop functionality for drivers for Linux device and implement virtual hardware through virtualization mechanisms (QEMU-KVM, VirtIO). For this purpose an isolated (sandbox) environment (eg a virtual machine) that supports nested virtualization is required, in order to create virtual machines within an existing virtual machine and modify the virtual hardware.
