Dr. S. S. Iyengar is the Chairman and Roy Paul Daniels Chaired Professor of Computer Science at Louisiana State University and is also Satish Dhawan Chaired Professor at Indian Institute of Science.

He has been involved with research in high-performance algorithms, data structures, sensor fusion, data mining, and intelligent systems since receiving his Ph.D. degree (in 1974 at Mississippi State University) and his M.S. from the Indian Institute of Science (1970).  He has directed over 30 Ph.D. candidates, many of whom are faculty at major universities worldwide or scientists or engineers at national labs/industry around the world.  His publications include 13 books (authored or coauthored, edited; Prentice-Hall, CRC Press, IEEE Computer Society Press, John Wiley & Sons, etc.) and over 280 research papers in refereed journals and conference in areas of high-performance parallel and distributed algorithms and data structures for image processing and pattern recognition, and distributed data mining algorithms for biological databases.  His books have been used by researchers at Purdue, University of Southern California, University of New Mexico, etc. at various times. He was a visiting professor at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory-Cal. Tech, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the Indian Institute of Science, and at the University of Paris and other places. He has been on the prestigious National Institute of Health-NLM Review Committee, in the area of Medical Informatics for 4 years.

Dr. Iyengar was the winner of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Achievement Award for Outstanding Contributions to Data Structures and Algorithms in Image Processing and Sensor Fusion Problems.  This is the most prestigious research award from IEEE Computer Society.  He was awarded the LSU Distinguished Faculty Award for Excellence in Research, the Hub Cotton Award for Faculty Excellence, and the LSU Tiger Athletic Foundation Teaching Award in 1996.  He has been a consultant to several industrial and government organizations (JPL, NASA etc.).  In 1999, Professor Iyengar won the most prestigious research award titled Distinguished Research Award and a university medal for his research contributions in optimal algorithms for sensor fusion / image processing.

He is also a Fellow of ACM, a Fellow of the IEEE, a Fellow of AAAS, IEEE Distinguished Visitor, etc.  He received the Prestigious Distinguished Alumnus Award from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore in 2003. Also, Elected Member of European Academy of Sciences (2002).  He is a member of the New York Academy of Sciences.  He has been the Program Chairman for many national / international conferences. He has given over 50 plenary talks and keynote lectures at numerous national and international conferences.
