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.
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.
Marta Cimitile received her degree with full marks and honors in Ingegneria Gestionale in 11/12/2003 from the Facoltà degli Studi di Napoli “Federico II”, presenting a thesis in “Enterprise management: organizational and technical problems related to implementation of a CRM”.
She has also received her PhD in software engineering at the Department of Informatics in the University of Bari, presenting a thesis in: “Knowledge Economy in Software Engineering”.
Currently she is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the Faculty of Economics of the Unitelma Sapienza in Rome (Italy). Her main research is in the study and evolution of Process Mining, Process and Knowledge Management and Knowledge transfer in Open Innovation.
She was involved in several industrial projects for the realization of an Experience Factory for the knowledge storing and reuse and she made several teaching and training activities in the context of these research projects . She is also partner of the SER&Practices spin off company of the University of Bari.
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 did his Phd from EPFL Switzerland, and currently works in the School of Computer Engineering at NTU Singapore.
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 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.
