Hisao Kameda received his B.S. degree in physics in 1965, and the M.S. and D.S. degrees for his work in computer science in 1967 and 1970, respectively, all from the University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan. In 1970, he became a Research Associate at the University of Tokyo. In 1971, he became an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science, the University of Electro-Communications, Tokyo. In 1973, he became an Associate Professor at the University of Electro-Communications. From 1973 to 1974 and from 1974 to 1975, he conducted research in IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, and in University of Toronto, under the support of IBM and National Research Council of Canada, respectively. In 1985, he became a Professor of the University of Electro-Communications. He served as a Chairman of the Department there. In 1992, he became a Professor at the Institute of Information Sciences and Electronics, University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba Science City, Japan. Since 2006, he has been a Professor Emeritus of University of Tsukuba. He has been conducting research on operating system design principles, operating system scheduling, performance measurement and queueing analysis of computer systems, software reliability, distributed processing, and so forth. He has also studied some performance and logical problems of parallel computers and transaction processing. He has continuously been interested in general systems implications of computer systems. Recently, he has interests particularly in the game theoretic view on networking and distributed processing. He is a Fellow of IEEE, a Fellow of IEICE (the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers of Japan), a Fellow of IPSJ (the Information Processing Society of Japan), and a Fellow of ORSJ (the Operations Research Society of Japan), in recognition of his research contributions.
