Short CV


Andrea Ceccarelli graduated from the University of Florence (Italy), where he received his Ph.D. in Informatics and automation Engineering in 2012. He is now an Assistant Professor (RTD-a) in Computer Science INF/01 at the University of Florence (Italy), Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. His primary research interests are in the field of architecting and validating dependable and secure systems, with a present focus on the two topics of Model-Driven Engineering and anomaly detection in highly-distributed, dynamic Systems of Systems.

He is or has been involved in several European, National and Regional projects, with different responsibilities from technical coordinator of the unit to WP leader. In details, he participated in the European projects FP7-PEOPLE-2012-IAPP CECRIS, FP7-PEOPLE-2013-IRSES DEVASSES, FP7-ICT-2013-10 AMADEOS, IST-FP6-26979 HIDENETS, FP6-IST-031413 SAFEDMI, FP7-IST-234088 ALARP, IST-FP7-216295 AMBER, in the National projects PRIN TENACE, PRIN DOTS-LCCI, and in the Regional projects POR CREO SILFI, FESR 2014-2020 SISTER, PAR FAS 2007-2013 TOSCA-FI. He was technical coordinator of the unit for the Regional project POR-CREO 2007-2013 SECURE! (total project cost approximately 6.2KK Euros) and for the European JPI URBAN EUROPE project IRENE (total project cost approximately 1.5KK Euros).

He regularly serves as member of Program Committees of International Conferences and Workshops including premium conferences in the research domain as DSN, SRDS and as reviewer for International conferences and journals. He was publication chair of SAFECOMP 2014, and SRDS 2016. He was TPC co-chair of SRDS 2017 (36th IEEE International Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems), and he is currently TPC co-chair of LADC 2018 (Latin-American Symposium on Dependable Computing). He was TPC co-chair of the Workshop RADIANCE @ DSN 2015, RADIANCE @ DSN 2016, RADIanCE @ DSN 2017, IRENE @ ISC2, and IRENE @ SmartGift 2017.

He was a Marie-Curie visiting researcher at Critical Software SA in 2013, and a visiting researcher at the Universidade Federal de Alagoas, Brasil (2014, 2016, 2017), Universidade Estadual de Campinas, Brasil (2015), and visiting student at the University of Coimbra, Portugal (2010-2011), for a total of approximately 13 months.

He served as expert for the European Commission in the review of H2020 projects in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017.

Starting 2009, he is a member of the company Resiltech SRL, an Academic Spinoff of the University of Florence. Resiltech operates in the area of design and Verification&Validation of critical systems. It counts above 25 full-time employees and three different premises in Italy. Within Resiltech, his role is to act as a scientific consultant and advisor for research projects involving small teams, facilitate technology transfer activities, and support the preparation of research proposals.

He is currently co-supervising the PhD students Enrico Schiavone (ciclo XXXI) at the University of Florence, and Lucas C. Leal at the University of Campinas (Brasil), and he was co-supervisor of Dr. Tommaso Zoppi (cycle XXX).
