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.

Ken Birman

The N. Rama Rao Professor of Computer Science at Cornell University. ACM and IEEE Fellow, winner of the 2009 IEEE Kanai Award. Ken works on secure, fault tolerant, systems in cloud computing and other distributed settings. His technology helped create the foundation for today's large cloud computing data centers and services, and has also played key roles in air traffic control systems, stock exchanges, factory automation, telecommunications switching systems and many other settings.

Daniele D'Agostino

Daniele D'Agostino, Ph.D. is member of the “Computing Architectures and High Performance Computing of the Institute for Applied Mathematics and Information Technologies - Enrico Magenes (IMATI) of the National Research Council of Italy (CNR) since October 2001. The diffusion of parallel and distributed computing puts the activity on the research group at the forefront of many initiatives. The highlight is on the achievements of three related FP7 projects, DRIHMS, DRIHM, DRIHM2US, aimed at the design and implementation of a research e-Infrastructure for hydro-meteorology studies of extreme events.
He actively participated to the COST Action IC0805 Open European Network for High Performance Computing on Complex Environments, where IMATI has been Italian Member of the Management Committee. In 2014 he was a co-chair of the 22nd Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and network based Processing. He co-authored more than 80 papers on international journals, books and conference proceedings. He acted also as co-guest editor of several special issues of ISI international.

Anwitaman Datta

Anwitaman did his Phd from EPFL Switzerland, and currently works in the School of Computer Engineering at NTU Singapore.

David De Roure

David De Roure is Professor of e-Research at University of Oxford and Director of the Oxford e-Research Centre. He is a Strategic Advisor to the Economic and Social Research Council in the area of Social Media Data. Working on the intersection of humanities, social science, and computer science, David conducts research on social machines, computational musicology, large scale sociotechnical systems, cyber security and social computing.

Schahram Dustdar

Schahram Dustdar is Full Professor of Computer Science heading the Distributed Systems Group at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Vienna). He is a member of the Academia Europaea: The Academy of Europe (since 2013) and an IEEE Senior Member (2009). He is recipient of the ACM Distinguished Scientist award (2009) and the IBM Faculty Award (2012). He is member of the editorial boards of IEEE Computer and IEEE Internet Computing. He is Editor in Chief of Computing (Springer).

Dror G. Feitelson

Professor of computer science at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Founding co-organizer of the series of international workshops on Job Scheduling Strategies for Parallel Processing and of the ACM workshop on Experimental Computer Science; maintainer of the Parallel Workloads Archive.

Ian Foster

I am a computer scientist with a predilection for building software systems (and, more recently, for deploying services) that solve problems in the sciences. I am a Distinguished Fellow at Argonne National Laboratory and a Professor at the University of Chicago. I am affiliated, in particular, with the Computation Institute, Department of Computer Science, and Mathematics and Computer Science Division.
