Domenico Talia is a professor of computer engineering at University of Calabria and partner of two startups: DtoK Lab and Exeura. His research interests include parallel and distributed data mining algorithms, cloud computing, social data analysis, distributed knowledge discovery, mobile computing, green computing systems, peer-to-peer systems, and parallel programming. He is the author of several books including Service-Oriented Distributed Knowledge Discovery (CRC 2012) and Grid Middleware and Services: Challenges and Solutions (Springer 2010), and more than 300 papers in archival journals such as CACM, IEEE TKDE, ACM Computing Surveys, FGCS, Parallel Computing, IEEE Internet Computing and international conference proceedings. He is a member of the editorial boards of many journals including IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing, the Future Generation Computer Systems journal, Journal of Cloud Computing, and The International Journal on Web and Grid Services. Paolo Trunfio is an associate professor of computer engineering at University of Calabria, Italy. He has been a visiting researcher at the Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS) in Stockholm and a research collaborator at the Institute of Systems and Computer Science of the Italian National Research Council (ISI-CNR). His current research focuses on cloud computing, distributed data mining, service-oriented architectures, social data analysis, energy-efficiency in distributed systems, and peer-to-peer networks. He published three books, Data Analysis in the Cloud (Elsevier 2015), Service-Oriented Distributed Knowledge Discovery (CRC 2012) and The Internet of Things Based on Smart Objects (Springer 2014), and many scientific papers in conference proceedings, edited books and international journals. Fabrizio Marozzo received a Laurea degree in computer engineering and a Ph.D. in systems and computer engineering from University of Calabria, where he currently works as a Research Technician. In 2011-2012 he visited the Barcelona SuperComputing Center (BSC) for a research internship. His research interests include distributed systems, software engineering, cloud computing, data mining, social data analysis, and peer-to-peer networks. He co-authored several papers in conference proceedings, edited books and international journals. He has been a member of the program committee of several scientific conferences and reviewer for international journals. He was the recipient of two Italian awards for best master thesis in the ICT area: Javaday award 2010 and AICA/Confindustria thesis award 2010.
