Biography: 

Francesco Delli Priscoli was born in Rome in 1962. He graduated magna cum laude in Electronic Engineering at the University of Rome "La Sapienza" in 1986. He received his PhD in Systems Engineering from the University of Rome "La Sapienza" in 1991. From 1986 to 1991 he worked in the department "Studies and Experiments" by Telespazio (Rome). Since 1991 he works at the University of Rome "La Sapienza" where it is currently Full Professor and teaches "Automatic Control" and "Network Control and Management"

He is the author of about 190 papers published in international journals (about 60), in books (about 10) and in conference proceedings (about 120), of a book and of five patents. He is an associate editor of Control Engineering Practice and a member of the IFAC Technical Committee "Networked Systems".

He has been and is currently responsible for the University of Rome "La Sapienza" of 30 projects funded by the European Union (fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh Framework Programme) or the European Space Agency (ESA) on next-generation communication networks (in particular, the FI-WARE project aiming at designing the first Future Internet technology platform) and energy distribution networks (Smart Grids). He has been and is currently responsible for many industrial research projects with companies in the telecommunications sector.

Currently, he coordinates a research group of 17 young researchers at the DIAG "Control Network Laboratory" managed by him. He has been the supervisor of more than 300 thesis (first and second level degree, doctorate), initiating many of the young supervised students into work activities in the field of industrial research.
