Short Biography

Federico Bergenti obtained a Laurea degree in Electronic Engineering (M.Eng.) from the University of Parma. He also obtained a Ph.D. in Information Technology from the same University. Currently, he is associate professor of Computer Science at the Department of Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science of the University of Parma. Federico is the chair of AI Lab, since 2015.

Starting from his doctoral studies, his research interests include all aspects of agent-oriented software engineering. Recently, his interest on software agents and agent-based systems focused on agent-oriented programming languages, and on the proposal of languages intended to target the development of complex systems at a high level of abstraction. Federico is also interested in constraint satisfaction problems and their applications. In particular, his contribution on this subject concerns the study of effective algorithms to treat polynomial constraints over finite domains. Finally, he has recently started a research on the study of long-term asymptotic properties of large multi-agent systems using ideas and methods borrowed from mathematical kinetic theories.
