Nicholas Glaros received the M.Sc. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 1984 and the Ph.D. degree in Digital Signal Processing (DSP) in 1995, both from the National Technical University of Athens. For many years he has been professionally involved in the areas of microcomputer-based systems design and implementation, DSP processors applications development (including optical character recogntion and speech coding systems), software and system programming, etc. In 1992, he joined the Institute for Language and Speech Processing / R.C. "Athena" (ILSP / R.C. "Athena"), Athens, Greece, as a research-computer engineer. Since then he has worked for ILSP / R.C. "Athena" on a series of national and european projects related to language technology. In particular, his contribution was to the fields of speech recognition, speech analysis and synthesis, linguistic tools and applications development. He has a long term experience in teaching information technology specific courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level in local technological institutions and universities. He has published results of his work in scientific journals and international conferences. He is a member of the Technical Chamber of Greece (since 1984), and of IEEE (1981-83 and 1991-2005).
