Plenary Speaker


Prof. Paolo Terenziani
DISIT - Universita' del Piemonte Orientale, Italy

Since 2000, Paolo Terenziani is Full Professor at the Institute of Computer Science of DISIT, Università del Piemonte Orientale, Alessandria, Italy. He is also Adjunct Professor at Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia. The research activity of Paolo Terenziani has begun in 1987 and it concerns mainly the field of Artificial Intelligence, and specifically the areas of knowledge representation and automatic reasoning (with particular attention to representation and reasoning with temporal constraints), the field of Temporal Databases and Medical Informatics. Regarding these research topics Paolo Terenziani has published more than 150 papers in peer-reviewed international journals, books, conference proceedings and workshops. In particular, in the last five years, he has achieved ten publications on the IEEE Transactions of Knowledge and Data Engineering. Since 1997, Paolo Terenziani leads the GLARE project, in collaboration with the hospital San Giovanni Battista in Turin, for developing a prototype of a domain-independent software system for the acquisition, representation and execution of clinical guidelines. The GLARE project is part of Openclinical, a larger international project for the development and dissemination of medical informatics. Since 2015 Paolo Terenziani is in the board of AIME (Artificial Intelligence in Medicine Europe). As early as in 1998, for his research activity, he won the “Artificial Intelligence Prize” from Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence. He has won “distinguished\best” paper awards in several international conferences, including AMIA 2012, Chicago, USA, November 2012 (more than 1000 submissions). As an “expert” for the European Community, Paolo Terenziani has been a reviewer of EC projects in Medical Informatics.
