Giancarlo Fortino is currently an Associate Professor of Computer Engineering (since 2006) at the Department of Electronics, Informatics and Systems (DEIS), University of Calabria (Unical), Rende (CS), Italy. He received a Laurea Degree (bachelor+master) in Computer Engineering and a PhD in Computer Engineering from the University of Calabria, Italy, in 1995 and 2000, respectively. He has been a visiting researcher at the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI), Berkeley (CA), USA, in 1997 and 1999, and visiting professor at Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Brisbane, Australia, in 2009. He was also Assistant Professor from 2001 to 2006 at University of Calabria. He was nominated Guest Professor in Computer Engineering of Wuhan University of Technology in April 2012 (the term of appointment is three years). His research interests include distributed computing and networks, agent systems, agent oriented software engineering, streaming content distribution networks, distributed multimedia systems, GRID computing, wireless sensor networks. He is currently involved in research and development projects in the research/technical areas of Wireless Sensor Networks and the Internet of Things (the SPINE project funded by Telecom Italia, the EU FP7 CONET project, the FP7 ENIAC E2SG project, the TETRis - Smart Objects project funded by the Italian Government), intelligent and mobile agents, and content delivery networks. He is author of more than 175 papers in international journals, conferences and books. He is the responsible of the Joint-Lab on IoT Technologies established between Unical and Wuhan University of Technology on July 2012. He currently serves in the editorial board of JNCA (Journal of Networks and Computer Applications, Elsevier), ITSE (Journal of Interactive Technology and Smart Education, Emerald), CASM (Complex Adaptive Systems Modeling, Springer), IJOAIT (International Journal On Advances in Internet Technology, IARIA), and IJPHIM (International Journal of Privacy and Health Information Management, IGI Global). He organized several int’l workshops and conferences (e.g. UPGRADE-CN workshops ’06-’09, CDN2010, MAS&S’06/’07/’09/’11/’12, WOA2011, CWSN@SCM2011, CWSN@SCM2012, IDC2012, DPMSS@ccGrid2012) as chair, was involved in many int’l conferences/workshops (>200) as TPC member, is/was guest-editor of several special issues (>13) on Content Networks, Multimedia Systems, Software Agents, and Wireless Sensor Networks in the following int’l journals: INFFUS, MONET, COMNET, JNCA, FGCS, MAGS, ITSE, IJAOSE, JOS, SIMPAT, and CASM. He leads the PLASMA group at DEIS of Unical and is co-founder and president of SenSysCal S.r.l., a spin-off of University of Calabria, whose mission is the development of innovative systems and services based on wireless sensor networks for health care, energy management and structural health. He is also a member of IEEE and ACM.

Antonio Liotta is Professor of Communication Network Protocols at the Eindhoven University of Technology, NL where he is leading a multifaceted team in Smart Communication Networks (http://bit.ly/autonomic_networks). Antonio holds a ‘Laurea’ degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Pavia, Italy and an MSc in Information Technology (cum laude) from Politecnico di Milano, Italy. He gained his PhD in Computer Science from University College London, UK with a thesis on distributed monitoring systems. He was appointed Lecturer in 2001 while he was with the University of Surrey, UK (2000-2004). At the University of Essex, UK (2005-2008) he became Senior Lecturer (2005) and Reader (2007).

Antonio is a Fellow of the U.K. Higher Education Academy. He is an associate editor of the Journal of Network and System Management (Springer) and serves the editorial boards of four more journals. During the last decade, Antonio has investigated topical issues in the areas of network and service management and is currently studying cognitive systems in the context of optical, wireless and sensor networks. He has three patents and over 150 publications to his credit and recently authored the book ‘Networks for Pervasive Services: six ways to upgrade the Internet’ (Springer, 2011 http://bit.ly/pervasive-networks).
