Johan Tordsson receives Nordea Science Prize

NEWS Johan Tordsson, Senior lecturer (associate professor) at the Department of Computing Science, Umeå University, is awarded Nordea Science Prize in 2016.

Johan Tordsson receives the award for his achievements as a researcher in distributed systems, including clouds and grids, at Umeå University. 

Distributed systems' research focuses flexible and scalable IT infrastructures for the digitized society. Target infrastructures span from single large-scale cloud datacenters, via federations of clouds, to the highly distributed clouds that potentially may become the backbone for the full-fledged Internet-of-Things (IoT). 

Research outcomes include autonomous infrastructure management systems and sophisticated tools for creating cloud-enabled applications. Central to the approach are software with flexibility in deployment and policy customization, providing key functionality for broad sets of usage scenarios.

The prize is worth SEK 100 000 and awarded at Umeå University's annual celebration on Saturday 22 October.

Nordea's Science Prize was instituted by Nordea Norrland Foundation. The prize is awarded to researchers at Umeå University that have made outstanding contributions to the promotion of scientific research and development, primarily in social sciences, legal science and computer science.
