Giovanni ALOISIO


 Giovanni Aloisio is Full professor of Information Processing Systems at the Dept. of Innovation Engineering of the University of Salento, Lecce, Italy, where he leads the HPC laboratory. Former director of the “Advanced Scientific Computing” (ASC) Division at the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC), he is now a member of the CMCC Strategic Council and Director of the CMCC Supercomputing Center. His expertise concerns high performance computing, grid & cloud computing and distributed data management. From 1986 to 1990 he contributed to the Caltech Concurrent Computation Program (C3P) led by Geoffrey C. Fox at the California Institute of Technology, investigating the efficiency of the Hypercube architecture in Real-Time SAR data processing. From 1991 to 1994, he collaborated with the Center for Advanced Computing Research (CACR) led by Paul Messina at the California Institute of Technology on High Performance Distributed Computing projects. He also collaborated with Carl Kesselman of the Information Sciences Institute on the use of Computational Grids for the management of large collections of scientific data. He has been a co-founder of the European Grid Forum (Egrid), which then merged into the Global Grid Forum (GGF), now Open Grid Forum (OGF). He has been involved into several EU grid projects such as GridLab, EGEE, IS-ENES1. He has been responsible for ENES (European Network for Earth System Modelling) in the EU-FP7 EESI (European Exascale Software Initiative) project, chairing the Working Group on Weather, Climate and solid Earth Sciences (WCES). He has also contributed to the IESP (International Exascale Software Project) exascale roadmap. He has been the chair of the European panel of experts on WCES that has contributed to the PRACE strategic document "The Scientific Case for HPC in Europe 2015-2020". Presently, he is coordinating CMCC activities into several EU FP7 projects such as EUBrazilCC, IS-ENES2, CLIP-C and the G8 ExArch. As CMCC, he is also the coordinator of the OFIDIA (Operational FIre Danger preventIon plAtform) project, in the context of the European Territorial Cooperation Program Greece-Italy 2007-2013. He is responsible for the University of Salento (as PRACE Third Party) in the EU-FP7 EESI2 project, chairing the WCES Working Group. He is a member of the ENES HPC Task Force. He is the author of more than 100 papers in referred journals on high performance computing, grid & cloud computing and distributed data management.
