From 2016 to 2018, I have been an "INdAM-Marie Curie" Research Fellow at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (DIETI) of the University "Federico II" of Naples and at the Sección Departamental de Sistemas Informáticos y Computacián of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
From 2013 to 2015, I have been a "RANNIS-Marie Curie" Research Fellow at the School of Computer Science of the Reykjavik University. In 2011, I have been working as a post-doc at University of Salerno. I got my PhD in Computer Science at the University of Udine in 2011 and I got my Bachelor and Master Degree in Computer Science at the University "Federico II" of Naples in 2005 and 2007, respectively.
I have a Master's Degree and a PhD in Computer Science both at the University of Udine. I did a post-doc at the University of Amsterdam. I worked as Assistant Professor at the University G. D'Annunzio of Chieti and Pescara, and then I moved to the University of Udine. Since December 2016 I am Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Udine. I am interested in data and network science, bibliometrics and generative art. A long time ago I was fond of logic and even before of temporal knowledge. I approached theater, contemporary dance, dance-theater, cinema and contemporary circus.
Ivan Girotto is appointed at the Abdus Salam, International Centre for Theoretical Physics as High-Performance Computing (HPC) Application Specialist. With more than ten years of experience Ivan Girotto has previously served, as computational scientist, at national supercomputing centres such as CINECA, and later at the Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC). Today at ICTP, Ivan is co-director and lecturer in number of international workshops and advanced schools as well as in other programs for education and training on parallel programming for scientific computing and HPC (i.e., the joint SISSA/ICTP Master program in HPC). His main activity at the ICTP remains to conduit and support the world-wide community to efficient research production on platforms for high-performance computing. Ivan Girotto is also one of the Principal Investigators of the Europen Centre of Excellence MaX - Materials design at the Exascale.
Carlos Kavka has a PhD in Computer Science from the Université Paris Sud (France). He is currently the Head of Research and Development of ESTECO SpA (Italy), a company specialized in multi-objective design optimization. In particular, he is in charge of the coordination of scientific, technical and technological aspects in most of the research projects in which ESTECO SpA participates. Carlos Kavka has been an Instructor, Lecturer and co-Director of international workshops at the International Center for Theoretical Physics ICTP (Italy) since 1993 till 2012, Professor at the Universidad Nacional de San Luis (Argentina) from 1994 till 2005. He has also participated in research activities at the LHC-CMS CERN experiment from 2005 to 2007.
Luca Manzoni is an assistant professor at the University of Trieste, Italy. He obtained his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Milano-Bicocca in 2013. In 2012 he obtained a JSPS postdoctoral fellowship and in 2017 he obtained an award as the best young postdoc in Computer Science and Mathematics at the University of Milano-Bicocca. He has published more than 80 paper in international journal, conferences, and workshops.

Matteo Marsili is a theoretical physicist who gained his PhD from SISSA, Trieste in 1994. After postdoctoral positions in Manchester University, Fribourg University and SISSA, he first joined INFM as a researcher and later the Abdus Salam ICTP, a research center in theoretical physics in Trieste, as a Research Scientist. There, he’s currently the coordinator of the Quantitative Life Sciences Section. He is interested in understanding how collective behaviour results from the interaction of simple units, be them particles in physics, neurons in a brain tissue or traders in financial markets. He exploits techniques that have been developed in statistical physics to unveil the “un-intended consequences” of interdependencies in other domains of life sciences. His research interests range from non-equilibrium statistical physics and critical phenomena to economics and finance. Lately, his interest has focused on statistical inference from high dimensional data, in e.g. systems biology and neuroscience, and it’s connection with critical phenomena.
