Full Curriculum Vitæ

Regarding my Name

My full name is Dimitrios Ioannis Diochnos. Ioannis is the name of my father and that's why it is usually omitted or simply stated as "I." Moreover, Dimitrios is actually my formal name, but it is hardly ever used in practice. In more than 99.9% of the cases you have to skip the last "o", therefore my first name is Dimitris. I will also happily respond to anyone who calls me "Dimitri", as Greeks tend to do and I am very much used to that (i.e., Greeks omit the serial "s" of the name when they talk to someone directly).

Every now and then I find myself having to describe what I do or what Computer Science is about. The following papers are suggested and aim to shed light in questions like these.

Donald E. Knuth

John McCarthy

Claude E. Shannon

Alan M. Turing
