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.

Amy S Bruckman

Amy Bruckman is a professor and Associate Chair in the School of Interactive Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she does research on collaborative computing. Bruckman received her Ph.D. from the MIT Media Lab's Epistemology and Learning group in 1997, and a B.A. in physics from Harvard University in 1987.

John M. Carroll

John M. Carroll researches methods and theory in HCI, particularly as applied to internet tools for collaborative learning and problem solving, and design of interactive systems. He received the Rigo Award and CHI Lifetime Achievement Award from ACM, and the Goldsmith Award from IEEE. He is a fellow of AAAS, ACM, IEEE, the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, and the Association for Psychological Science, and received an honorary doctorate in engineering from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid.

Kjiersten Fagnan

Kjiersten Fagnan joined the JGI in 2012 after completing a petascale postdoctoral fellowship at NERSC and CRD. In 2014 Fagnan became the JGI-NERSC Engagement Lead with a focus on adapting JGI workloads to run on supercomputing hardware. She is also working to understand the data-intensive nature of JGI workloads. Fagnan earned her PhD in Applied Mathematics at the University of Washington in 2010 and her BA from UC Berkeley in 2002.

Martin Fowler

I am an author, speaker… essentially a loud-mouthed pundit on the topic of software development. I work for ThoughtWorks, a software delivery company, where I have the exceedingly inappropriate title of “Chief Scientist”. I’ve written half-a-dozen books on software development, including Refactoring and Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture. I write regularly about software development on

Edward A Fox

Dr. Edward A. Fox holds a Ph.D. and M.S. in Computer Science from Cornell University, and a B.S. from M.I.T. Since 1983 he has been at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (VPI&SU or Virginia Tech), where he serves as Professor of Computer Science. He directs the Digital Library Research Laboratory and the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations.

Hari K Garg

Educator, researcher, innovator, and an entrepreneur. Research has evolved from the lowest layers of 7-layer OSI model to the highest! Enjoys watching NFL and singing Bollywood songs! Has worked for Syracuse University, Philips/Lucent, and National University of Singapore. Infocomm technologies and their connections to humans fascinates Hari. His start-up companies are based on his own research and intellectual capital. The record of success is mixed. The journey continues forever.
