Vittorio Loreto is Full Professor of Physics of Complex Systems at Sapienza University of Rome and Research Leader at the ISI Foundation. Loreto is coordinating the laboratory of Social Dynamics spread among Sapienza University of Rome and the ISI Foundation. His scientific activity is mainly focused on the statistical physics of complex systems and its interdisciplinary applications. He coordinated several project at the EU level and he is presently coordinating the KREYON project devoted to unfolding the dynamics of innovation and creativity. Loreto has published over 180 papers in internationally refereed journals and conference proceedings and chaired several workshops and conferences.

Vito DP ServedioVito DP Servedio

Vito D.P. Servedio, PhD (ISC-CNR and Sapienza University of Rome) got his PhD at the Technical University of Dresden where he continued his research for other three years as a Post-Doc. In this period he actively collaborated with the Max Planck Institute, and the Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research in Dresden dealing with the calculation of the electronic structure of metal surfaces. He moved to the Sapienza University of Rome in November 2002 where he started dealing with the physics of complex systems. Since April 2014 he has been researcher at the institute of complex systems (ISC-CNR). After a short period at the institute of complex systems (ISC-CNR), he moved to the Complexity Science Hub Vienna in 2016. His research focuses on complex network theory, quantitative linguistics, opinion dynamics, innovation dynamics, learning dynamics and human computing.

Francesca TriaFrancesca Tria

Francesca Tria is a researcher at the Physics Department of Sapienza University of Rome. She got her degree in physics at Sapienza University of Rome and her PhD in physics at the University of Naples Federico II. She spent two years as a post-doc at the ICTP Institute in Trieste before moving at the Institute for Scientific Interchange (ISI) in Turin. Starting from a background in statistical physics and complex systems, she explored different research realms where this expertise could be successfully applied. In particular, her research activity includes complex systems approaches to biologically related problems, such as evolutionary dynamics and phylogeny reconstruction, to social phenomena, such as language evolution, learning and innovation dynamics. She was recently part of the EU project EveryAware, locally coordinating the activities of the group of ISI. She is currently coordinating the ISI team in the KREYON project.

Indaco BiazzoIndaco Biazzo

Indaco got his degree in Physics from University of Rome "La Sapienza”. He completed his PhD at the Polytechnic University of Turin with a focus on developing new strategies and algorithms, borrowed from statistical physics of complex systems, to study optimizations problems and high correlated quantum systems. Indaco is now a researcher at Institute for Scientific Interchange (ISI) in Turin working in the project elise with the aim to study and map subjective perceptions and objective data about cities. Inside the project Elise he is involved in the creation of an app that will allow user to share his urban experiences. Moreover he is interested in studies about urban mobility using new open data, recently made available, about public transport systems with the new informatics tools recently developed by the open source communities.

Elisabetta FaliveneElisabetta Falivene

Elisabetta Falivene got her degree in Computer Science in 2007 from University La Sapienza di Roma. She worked for Poste Italiane, involved in developing the software that brought the company to make his first entrance into the internet world. From 2009 to 2012 collaborated with Linkem, developing web application. From 2012 worked for University La Sapienza di Roma like System Manager. Currently, she works at the Institute of Complex Systems (ISC-CNR), ISC-Sapienza Unit.

Bernardo MonechiBernardo Monechi

Bernardo Monechi got his PhD at the Sapienza University of Rome. His Master Thesis dealt with problems related with the dynamics of long range interacting systems. He has been invovled in the Complex World PhD programme, aiming at analysing and modelling the European Air Traffic within the framework of Complex Systems. His PhD activity also concerns the topic of human mobility in urban environments. He is currently working at ISI Foundation, being involved in the Kreyon Project. His current research interests are the study and modelling of techno-social systems related with creativity and the diffusion of innovation and novelties.

Pietro GravinoPietro Gravino

Pietro Gravino (Institute for Scientific Interchange Foundation). After a master thesis in the framework of the Complex Systems at Sapienza - University or Rome, Physics Dept., he worked as a collaborator for the Everyaware Project, supported by EU. He got his Physics Ph.D. at Alma Mater Studiorum – Università di Bologna and is currently involved in the XTribe platform development and experiments. He is also involved in the Kreyon Project, supported by Templeton Foundation.

Cesare BianchiCesare Bianchi

Cesare Bianchi completed his PhD at the Department of Computer Science and Informatics of the University College Dublin, defending a thesis on "A Computational Model of the Emergence of Analogical Reasoning in Category Learning". His research interests range from Cognitive Science to Evolutionary Robotics, and he has a degree in Experimental Psychology. He has more than 15 years of experience in Software Development and Project Management.

Miguel Ibáñez BerganzaMiguel Ibáñez Berganza

Miguel Ibáñez Berganza obtained his Ph. D. degree at the Autónoma University of Madrid in 2011. Since then he has worked as a researcher in statistical and quantum physics. His scientific interests range from information theory to cognition and evolution, psychology, philosophy and popularisation of science.

William SchuellerWilliam Schueller

William Schueller got his physics degree from ENS Lyon, with a specialization on complex systems modelling. His PhD work -- under the supervision of PY Oudeyer at INRIA Bordeaux -- focuses on active control of complexity in the Language Games models. He worked in the past on information theoretic models of language, on social insects behavior, and taught maths and physics for 2 years in Galatasaray University (Istanbul, Turkey). He is visiting the SDL for a few months, to build a collaboration around his PhD topic.
