Mario Luca Bernardi

Mario Luca Bernardi received the Laurea degree in Computer Science Engineering from the University of Naples Federico II, Italy, in 2003 and the Ph.D. degree in Information Engineering from the University of Sannio in 2007.

Since 2003 I have worked as a researcher in the field of software engineering writing several papers published in journals and conference proceedings. My main research interests include software maintenance and testing, software reuse, software reverse engineering and reengineering, with particular interest on software modularization.
I also served both as a member of the program and organizing committees of several international conferences, and as reviewer of papers submitted to some of the main journals and magazines in the field of data mining, software engineering, software maintenance and program comprehension.

Currently I am an Assistant Professor at Giustino Fortunato University , holding the courses of "Computer Science" and "Software Systems and Services" for the Avionics Science and Technologies master degree.

Soha MN Hassoun

Soha Hassoun is currently Chair of the Department of Computer Science at Tufts University. She holds secondary appointments in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and also in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Tufts. Soha received the Ph.D. degree from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Washington, Seattle, WA. Soha was an integrated circuit designer with the Microprocessor Design Group, Digital Equipment Corporation, Hudson, MA, 1988-1991, and worked as a consultant to several EDA companies including Mentor Graphics and Carbon Design Automation. Her current research interests include developing algorithmic solutions to facilitate designing integrated circuits, and understanding the impact of new technologies such as double-gate devices, carbon nanotubes, and 3-D integration on design. Her other research includes computational methods for Systems Biology and Metabolic Engineering, including pathway analysis, modularity, pathway synthesis, and predictive modeling of biochemical networks. Dr. Hassoun was a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award, and several awards from ACM/SIGDA for her service, including the Distinguished Service Award in 2000 and 2007, and the 2002 Technical Leadership Award. She held executive and technical leadership positions for several conferences and workshops. She is a a senior member of IEEE and ACM. See
