J. Octavio Gutierrez-Garcia received his PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from CINVESTAV and Grenoble Institute of Technology, respectively, in 2009. Currently, he is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM). Before joining ITAM, he was a postdoctoral fellow at Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (ranked 3rd in citations per faculty in the world - 2018 QS World University Rankings) in the Republic of Korea. The Mexican Council of Science and Technology has recognized him as a level-1 member of the National System of Researchers. He is the author of more than 30 peer-reviewed manuscripts from which 3 articles are published in journals in the top 10 of their respective categories according to the 2016 Journal Citation Reports. In addition, two of his articles were included in (i) the SciVerse ScienceDirect Top 25 Hottest Articles of Computer Science (from April to June 2012) published in Future Generation Computer Systems and in (ii) the top 50 most frequently accessed documents from July to September 2016 for IEEE Transactions on Services Computing. Dr. Gutierrez-Garcia served as the Lead Guest Editor of a Special Issue on Big Data Applications of the International Journal of Web Services Research. Furthermore, he served as the program committee co-chair of the IEEE BigData CONGRESS Mexico City Satellite Session as well as the work-in-progress track co-chair and the applications track co-chair of the IEEE International Conference on Services Computing.

His research is focused on the design, implementation, and exploitation of agent-based problem solving techniques to achieve complex objectives in continuously evolving, distributed, and service-oriented Cloud systems.
