UniMi LogoThe Computer Science Department of the University of Milan ("Dipartimento di Informatica", DI) offers curricula in Computer Science, Digital Communication, Telecommunications, issuing degrees at the first, second and doctoral levels. The current number of students enrolled at the DI is about 4,000. The faculty of the DI comprises about 20 full professors, 18 associate professors, 46 assistant professors, and 22 post-docs. The technical and administrative staff comprises about 30 people. The DI is active in most areas of computer science, theoretical as well as experimental and applied. In particular, research is active in the fields of computational intelligence and soft computing, telecommunications and social networks, random processes and mobility models, computer graphics and image processing, optimization, planning, web services and e-learning. The institution is used to dealing with international research programs. In particular we cite the EC TMR project PHYSTA (Principled hybrid Systems, Theory and Applications) (PHYSTA Project, 1998) 1998-2000 ,the EC FP5 project ORESTEIA (Modular Hybrid Artefacts with Adaptive Functionality) (Oresteia Project, 2001) 2001-2003, EC FP7-ICT REWIRE (Rehabilitative Wayout In Responsive home Environments), (REWIRE Project, 2011) 2011-2014, EC  FP7-FIRE  317947 Social&Smart (Social Housekeeping Through Intercommunicating Appliances And Shared Recipes Merged In A Pervasive Web-Services Infrastructure) 2012-2015,  Network of Eccellence Pascal (now Pascal 2) (PASCAL 2 , 2010), since 2005.

Main tasks in the project. The competence of UNIMI in this project is mainly involved in the general coordination and management of the project and in the design of the overall architecture of the service infrastructure. UNIMI will cover also strict technical aspects concerning the development of the NETT platform to share materials among a social community of entrepreneurship teachers, and will cooperate in the data gathering and analysis.

 

Short profile of key persons

Bruno Apolloni. He is full professor in Computer Science at the University of Milan, Italy. His main research interests are in the frontier area between probability and mathematical statistics and computer science, with special regard to pattern recognition and multivariate data analysis, probabilistic analysis of algorithms, subsymbolic and symbolic learning processes, mobility models, domotic systems. He has published more than 150 papers in international journals and proceedings of international congresses. Prof. Apolloni is head of the Neural Networks Research Laboratory (LAREN, http://laren.dsi.unimi.it) of the department of Computer Science of the University of Milan and board member of the EuropeanNeural Network Society (ENNS, http://www.e-nns.org/) and of the Italian Society for Neural Networks (SIREN, http://siren.dsi.unimi.it). He is a member of the editorial board of the journals Neural Networks, Neurocomputing and International Journal of Hybrid Intelligent Systems. He is Scientific Leader in national and international research projects.

 

Marco Trubian is an Associate Professor of Operational Research at the Computer Science Department of "Universita' degli Studi di Milano". His research interests include the modelling of combinatorial and nonlinear optimization problems and the development of heuristic and exact algorithms for their solution. He has published 25 research papers on international journals as Networks, Discrete Applied Mathematics, Informs Journal on Computing, European Journal of Operational Research, Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing and others. The main investigated application fields are those related with scheduling, network design and Data Center management. An uninterrupted research field is the design and the development of efficient heuristic algorithms based on local search techniques. Dantzig-Wolfe decomposition techniques (column generation) have been applied to graph partitioning problems and routing problems, with applications in the context of balancing the workload of public offices and in the optimal trains composition in the railway.

 

Simone Bassis. He is an assistant professor at the Department of Computer Science, University of Milano, Italy. His main research activities concern the inference of spatial and temporal processes, ranging from linear and nonlinear statistical regression methodologies to techniques of fractal processes identification, passing through the analysis and synthesis of both population and neuronal evolutionary dynamics. Recently he has been engaged in mobility models in opportunistic networks and mobile OS. He has published around 50 papers in international journals and conference proceedings. He is member of the board of the Italian Society for Neural Networks (SIREN).

 

Raffaella Folgieri is Researcher and Assistant Professor in Information Technology at the Faculty of Political Science and at the Faculty of Medicine. She also teaches Information Technology Representation of Knowledge in the post-degree course in Cognitive Science and Decision Making, Virtual Reality in the IT and Digital Communication degree course at the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics, and Natural Sciences of the University of Milan. Member of Italian Society of Engineering and of SIREN (Italian Neural Networks Society), she has published her research in several journals (main fields of interest: Brain and Cognition, Brain.
Computer Interaction; Virtual Reality; Bioinformatics; Machine Learning and AI; Quality assessment in software development; e-learning). Her work explores some of the central issues in cognitive research such as how people move from skilled performance to problem solving, how a person learns, manages errors, interprets visual stimuli, and communicates.

 

Giorgio Valle is a retired full professor in Computer Science at the University of Milan, Italy since 1 November 2012. His main research interests are in the frontier area between probability and mathematical statistics and computer science, with special regard to pattern recognition and multivariate data analysis, probabilistic analysis of algorithms, subsymbolic and symbolic learning processes, mobility models, domotic systems. Member of the Editorial Board of  "Computers & Graphics", and "Computers in Industry", Giorgio Valle joined ACM in 1969, is founding member of the EUROGRAPHICS, the European Association for Computer Graphics, is a member of IEEE Computer Society, and has been member of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, of the American Association of Artificial Intelligence, and was a founding member of the Italian Chapter of the Association of Computing Machinery.
