Federico Bergenti received his Ph.D. in Information Technologies from the University of Parma
(Department of Information Engineering) in 2002. From the same University, he obtained a
Laurea degree (M.Sc.) in Electronics Engineering in 1998.
From 1998 to 1999 he worked for CSELT S.p.A. (Centro Studi e Laboratori Telecomunicazioni, now Telecom Italia Labs) in Turin.
From 2000 to 2006 he worked for CNIT (Consorzio Nazionale Interuniversitario per le Telecomunicazioni) for Parma Research Unit.
From October 2007 he is a Tenured Researcher in Computer Science at the University of Parma and he is affiliated to the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.
In 2008, he co-founded CMT Lab.
Federico's research activity has been addressing mainly Artificial Intelligence and Software Engineering, with
special regard to Multi-Agent Systems. In Artificial Intelligence, he worked on issues related to agent
communication languages and their semantics. In Software Engineering, he initially worked on architectures
for agent-based middleware, then he concentrated on problems related to reusability and strong
decoupling in agent-based systems.
More recently, he turned his interests towards agent programming languages; he is mainly interested in constraint-based approaches for agent programming languages.
Federico participated in many research projects funded by the European Commission within the 5th and the 6th Framework Programme (mainly IST/RTD) and investigated many aspects of Multi-Agent Systems and their applications.
Federico coordinated various scientific initiatives, among which the organization of many International Workshops. Since 2006, he is part of the Senior Program Committee of AAMAS (Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems) International Conference.
