Short Bio

Marco Aldinucci is a full professor and the P.I. of the Parallel Computing research group at the Computer Science Department of the University of Torino. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Pisa (2003), and he has been a researcher at the Italian National Research Council (CNR). He is the author of over a hundred papers in international journals and conference proceedings (see Google scholar). He is the recipient of the HPC Advisory Council University Award 2011, the NVidia Research award 2013, the IBM Faculty Award 2015.  He has been participating in over 15 EU-funded research projects concerning parallel computing attracting in the last eight years over 6M€ of research funds. He currently the coordinator of the 4.5M€ HPC4AI project and the dissemination manager of the 14.8M€ H2020 IA Deephealth. He serves as director of the “data-centric computing” laboratory at ICxT@UNITO  innovation center, and vice-president of the C3S@UNITO competency center. He is a member of the Governing Board of the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking. He a co-designer of the FastFlow programming framework and several other programming frameworks and libraries for parallel computing.
