I am a staff
researcher of the ICAR
(Istituto per il CAlcolo e le Reti ad alte prestazioni/ High
Performance Computing and Network Institute), an institute of the CNR
(Italian National Reseach Council) in Palermo, from December 2001.
I am responsible for the FACILE (cognitive
agents for intelligent management and fruition of information and
advanced services) group research activity.
From September 2006 to August 2007 and from March to August 2008, I
have been an invited associate professor at the University of
(France). On October 2008 I got my Habilitation à Diriger des
from the University Paul Sabatier (Toulouse, France).
I am currently chairing the IEEE FIPA Design
Process Documentation and Fragmentation Working Group (see WG website)
I have been the contact for the ICAR Insitute (Palermo Dept.)
