Massimiliano Giacomin is associate professor in Information Processing Systems at the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Brescia (Italy). He is originally from Conegliano (TV, Italy). He received the Laurea degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Padova in 1998, and the PhD degree in Information Engineering from the University of Brescia in 2002. From 2002 to 2004, he was a post-doc grant holder at the Knowledge Engineering and Human-Computer Interaction research group of the Department of Information Engineering. From 2005 to 2010, he worked as as an assistant professor ("ricercatore") in the same department.
He is author of more than 50 scientific papers in various fields of Artificial Intelligence, such as knowledge representation and automated reasoning (in particular, argumentation theory, fuzzy constraints, temporal reasoning), agent and multi-agent systems, and knowledge-based systems. In 2006, he won the "Marco Somalvico" Artificial Intelligence prize sponsored by the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AI*IA) for significant results obtained in the field by an italian young researcher (born after 1970). Currently, he is member of the Program Committee of AAMAS 2010 (9th International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems, Toronto, Canada), ECAI 2010 (19th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence, Lisbon, Portugal), EC-Web 2010 (11th International Conference on Electronic Commerce and Web Technologies), and the Local arrangements Chair of COMMA 2010 (3rd International Conference on Computational Models of Argument) to be held in Brescia, Italy. He is also member of the Organising Commitee of AI*IA 2010 (10th Symposium of the Italian Association for the Artificial Intelligence), and co-chair of the Workshop "Argumentation in Artificial Intelligence and Philosophy: computational and philosophical perspectives" (ARGAIP 2010) in the context of AI*IA 2010.
