Biography

Andrea Bianco is Full Professor at Politecnico di Torino since 2011. He was Department Head at the Dipartimento di Elettronica e Telecomunicazioni and Member of the Senato Academico 2011-2023. Since 2024 he is Vice Rector for the Internal Affairs. His current research interests are in the fields of packet switching systems, SDN and programmable networks, all-optical networks and Networked Music Performance. According to Scopus, he has co-authored more than 220 papers, his h-index is 27 with more than 2900 citations. He was Area Editor for the IEEE Journal of Lightwave Technology (2013-2018) and since 2010 for Elsevier Computer Communications journal. He was member of the HPSR steering committee in 2015. He was Technical Program Co-Chair for HPSR 2003 and 2008, DRCN 2005, IT-NEWS 2008, IEEE ICC ONS symposium 2010, IEEE GLOBECOM NGN Symposium 2015 and Networking 2015. He was a member of the TPC of several conferences, including IEEE INFOCOM, IEEE GLOBECOM, IEEE ICC, IEEE HPSR, IFIP ONDM, Networking, HotI. He led as National coordinator the MIUR projects SFINGI, on virtualization in software router, and BORA_BORA, on scalable software routers. He was involved in the European projects FEDERICA on network virtualization, STRONGEST on optical networks, ECONET on energy saving in networks. He was in charge for Politecnico di Torino of the MURST project RAMON on mobile computing and ZeTON on Zero TOuch Optical Networks. He also participated in several others National and European projects: the European NoE on Optical Networks e-PHOTON/ONe and BONE,the IST project DAVID on an optical MAN based on interconnected rings, and the European ACTS project on a single layer optical network SONATA, the Italian MIUR projects OSATE, RINGO, IPPO, and WONDER on optical networks, EURO on software routers and MQOS on quality of service issues. He was also involved in several research projects with private industries, including BT, Lucent, TILAB, CISCO and Alcatel.
