Dr. Eleni Patouni received the B.Sc. and M.Sc degrees (with honours, ranked 1st in her class) from the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, NKUA in 2003 and 2005 respectively. In 2010, she received the phd degree from the same department. Since October 2004, she has been participating in the European IST-FP6 Integrated Projects “E2R”, “E2R II” (End-to-End Reconfigurability phase I and II), IST-FP7 E3 (End-to-End Efficiency) also leading sWP4.1 “Self-management in autonomous system entities” & FP7 Self-NET. From 2009 to 2012, she has been also an adjunct lecturer in the Technological Educational Institute of Athens (TEI of Athens). Starting on September 2010, she currently serves as senior researcher & Delegate Workpackage Leader in FP7 UniverSelf. Since September 2012, he serves as a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the research programme FutureNET (Fair Synergetic Resource Management and Behaviour-Aware Adaptation in Future Internet Environments) which was submitted by Dr. Eleni Patouni and approved for funding (success rate 6%) under the action ‘Support of Postdoctoral Researchers’ of the Ministry of Education, Lifelong Learning & Religious Affairs, General Secretariat for Research and Technology. She has more than 35 publications in the thematic areas of beyond 3G, cognitive networks and autonomic communication systems.

In September 2006, she received the best paper award in the IFIP Autonomic Networking Conference, 2006. In May 2013, she received the best session award for organising the session “Network operators’ perspective on Future Networks challenges” in Future Internet Assembly (FIA 2013). Her main research interests include network-management and decision-making mechanisms, load balancing algorithms, object-oriented design of mobile network systems, reconfigurable protocols and component-based models, as well as cognitive and autonomic networking issues.
