Fabio Panzieri
Fabio Panzieri is a professor of Computer Science at the Faculty of Science of the University of Bologna (Italy). He obtained the "Laurea" degree in "Scienze dell' Informazione" from the University of Pisa (Italy), in February 1978, and the Ph. D. degree in Computer Science from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne (U.K.), in June 1985. From June 1979 to May 1985 he was a research associate at the Computing Laboratory of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. During these years he carried out research on fault tolerance issues in distributed systems, and on the design and development of communication protocols for local and wide area networks. From October 1985 to April 1989, he was an independent consultant for a number of medium and large IT companies. From April 1989 to October 1990 he was an associate professor at the Dipartimento di Matematica Pura ed Applicata of the University of L'Aquila (Italy). His research activity is concerned with issues of design of fault tolerant distributed systems, distributed real-time systems, and middleware and communication support for responsive distributed applications.

Renzo Davoli
Renzo Davoli is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Bologna. He received his degree in Mathematics from the University of Bologna (Italy) in 1986. In 1991 he joined the Department of Mathematics of the same University as a Research Associate. He has been a member of the Computer Science Department since 1995. His research interests include large-scale distributed systems, real-time systems, nomadic computing, wireless systems and neural networks.

Marco Roccetti
Marco Roccetti is a Professor of Computer Science at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Bologna. He received the Italian Laurea degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Bologna in the academic year 1987/88. From 1990 to 1992 he was a member of the technical staff of the Department of Mathematics at the University of Bologna, and from December 1992 to October 1998 he was with the Department of Computer Science as a Research Associate. His research interests include: Design, Implementation and Evaluation of Multimedia Computing and Communication Systems, Performance and Reliability Analysis of Distributed and Parallel Computing Systems, Simulative and Probabilistic Methods for the Development of Distributed Computing Systems and Applications.
