I work for INRIA, the French National Institute for Computer Science and Control Science. I am part of Regal, a joint group between INRIA and LIP6 (the Computer Science laboratory of Université Paris-VI Pierre-et-Marie-Curie) in Paris.
I previously led the Cambridge Distributed Systems Group (Camdis) at Microsoft Research Cambridge (MSRC), from October 1998 to March 2005. For several years before that I was the leader of INRIA's SOR (Systèmes d'objets répartis, Distributed Object Systems) group.
I am a member of the ACM Europe Council, of the Board of the European Forum for ICST, and of the board of Société Informatique de France, the French learned society in Informatics. I am the past chair of EuroSys, the European professional society in Computer Systems, which I was instrumental in creating. (EuroSys is is the European chapter of SIGOPS.)
I am the current PC chair of the 2011 Conférence Française de Systèmes d'Exploitation (CFSE) and a member of the Steering Committee for the Workshop on Large-Scale Distributed Systems and Middleware (LADIS). Recently, I was a member of the EuroSys 2010 Programme Committee. I was PC co-Chair for LADIS 2010 (with Marcos Aguilera), and PC member for SASO 2010.
Marc Shapiro does his research on distributed computer systems, data replication and consistency algorithms, and distributed garbage collection. He invented the proxy concept, which is now universal on the Internet. He published at SOSP and OSDI, the two most prestigious venues of the area (one of the only two French papers at both venues). He was instrumental in the creation of EuroSys, the main European venue in the area. He authored 64 international publications, 17 recognised software systems, and four patents. Dr Shapiro's research started with a PhD from Université Paul Sabatier for research performed at at LAAS in Toulouse, France (1980), followed by a post-doc at MIT, and a researcher position at CMIRH. He is a researcher at INRIA since 1984. He spent a one-year sabbatical at Cornell (1993--1994), and he led the Cambridge Distributed Systems group at Microsoft Research Cambridge (UK) from 1999 to 2005. He is currently a Senior Researcher for INRIA Paris-Rocquencourt, in the Regal group, located at LIP6.
Dr. Shapiro, a Senior Member of the ACM, is a member of the ACM Europe Council. He is the founder and past chair of the EuroSys, the European professional society in systems and European Chapter of SIGOPS. He was Vice-Chair of ACM SIGOPS , the Special Interest Group on Operating Systems, from 1995 to 1999. He founded its French chapter, ASF, which he chaired from 1996 to 2000.
He has been a member of several Program Commitees in operating systems, distributed systems, persistent systems, and garbage collection.
