Marco Brambilla is Assistant Professor at Politecnico di Milano, Polo di Como. He collaborates to several research projects related to worflows, Web services, Semantic Web, semistructured data mapping, web architectures for embedded systems, interactive applications for cultural heritage, ICT for developing countries. Marco Brambilla graduated in Information Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano in April 2001, achieving a final mark of 100/100 cum laude. In 2005 he got a Ph.D. in Information Engineering at Politecnico di Milano with full marks. The master thesis work focused on a framework for designing and developing data-intensive Web sites; the thesis includes also the results of two months of internship in Cisco Systems (San Josè, CA, USA) for the design of two pilot Web sites (Cisco.com, Cisco intranet). The Ph.D. thesis extended this work with new primitives for high-level modeling of Web services interactions and workflow enactment within Web applications, with particular attention to distribution, exception handling, platform independent modeling and code generation. Marco Brambilla is coauthor of the book “Designing Data-Intensive Web Applications” (Morgan-Kauffman, 2002). The book has been translated in Italy and published by McGraw Hill. He has been speaker at the EDBT 2002 Ph.D. summer school in Cargese (FR), and actively participated to the WebSI (Web Services Integrator) research project, founded by the European Union in the fifth framework. In 2004, he spent 6 months as visiting researcher at UCSD (University of California, San Diego). He collaborated with Yannis Papakonstantinou, Victor Vianu, and Alin Deutsch, working on Web application models and on Specification and verification of workflow-based Web applications through linear temporal logics. Several seminars on conceptual modeling, Web services, workflow and Web engineering has been given at Harvard University Medical School (Boston, USA), CISCO System (San José, USA), University of California, San Diego (UCSD, USA), Stanford University (Palo Alto, USA), and Politecnico di Milano (Italy).
