Short bio

Luciano Serafini is the head of the Data and Knowledge Management Research Unit at Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Trento, Italy. Luciano Serafini has more than 25 years of experience in academic research and technology transfer in the area of knowledge representation and reasoning, artificial intelligence and Knowledge and Data Management.  His research interests include logic for distributed knowledge (since 1990 development of the logic of context) information integration, automated reasoning, multi agent system, ontological reasoning for the semantic web, collaborative knowledge aquisition and modelling, and integration of logical and statistical knowledge. He has published more than 150 papers, and his h-index under Google Scholar is 37. He is member of the PC committee of several top level conferences and workshops in these areas and contributes to many industrial, research, local and european projects. He was the Local chair of the 2002 edition of the European Summer School on logic language and information, and the local co-chair of the 13th Internaitonal Semantic Web Conference (2014) He regularly supervises Master and Ph.D studens, at the University of Trento, Verona, Milano and Graz, and his Teaching activity includes courses in Database, Information systems, Mathematical Logic, Knowledge Representation and reasoning, and Semantic Web, for the Master degree and Doctoral Degree at the University of Trento and Bolzano.
