Panayotis Antoniadis

Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich

Panayotis Antoniadis is a senior researcher at ETH Zurich. During his graduate studies he contributed in the design of distributed scheduling algorithms for high-speed switches and the study of incentive mechanisms for peer-to-peer systems, including file sharing, shared virtualized infrastructures, community wireless networks, and delay tolerant networks. Since 2012, he is pursuing an interdisciplinary research agenda on the role of social software and wireless networks for building sustainable and convivial hybrid neighborhood communities. With colleagues from the field of urban planning, he has proposed a novel social learning approach based on an under development hybrid experimental framework, the NetHood toolkit,, which operates outside the public Internet and allows local communities to own, customize, and operate their own ICTs according to their own values and objectives. Part of this interdisciplinary work has been published in the Journal of Planning Education and Research (SAGE) and has been presented in various conferences from different fields, such as computer networks, sociology, urban planning, community informatics, institutional research, and behavioural economics. Panayotis received his Ph.D. degree from the Athens University of Economics and Business in 2006, and until 2012 he was a post-doc researcher at UPMC Sorbonne Universites in Paris. Home URL:
