Short Biography

Felicita Di Giandomenico is a Senior Researcher at the Institute ISTI of the Italian National Research Council, which she joined in 1989 and where she is currently leading the Software Engineering and Dependable Computing research laboratory. She spent nine months (from August 1991 to April 1992) visiting the Computing Laboratory of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne (UK) as Guest Member of Staff.
She has been involved in research on dependability and fault tolerance since she was a student, being her master thesis rooted in the Byzantine Generals' Problem. Along the years, her research contributions focussed on fault diagnosis, efficient solutions for software implemented fault tolerance, modeling and evaluation of dependability attributes (mainly reliability, availability, and performability). More recently, her research studies addressed the analysis of interdependencies in electrical utilities infrastructures and approaches to adaptive dependability assessment in dynamic and evolving connected systems. She has been involved in numerous European and National projects in the area of dependable computing systems, for several of which she acted as ISTI-CNR principal investigator. For the last ten years, she regularly assisted the European Commission as expert reviewer in the area of Embedded systems, Security&Dependability, Cyber Physical Systems.
Her service contributions within the dependability related community includes the PC co-chairmanship of i) Fast Abstracts Track at DSN-2004, ii) IEEE WADS Workshop at DSN 2007; iii) IEEE SRDS 2008; iv) SAFECOMP 2014. Moreover, she has been Program chair of IEEE DSN-PDS 2009, Workshop chair of EWDC 2011, and General chair of SERENE 2012. She regularly serves as member of the program committee of the most representative conferences and workshops in the area of dependable computing, distributed systems, fault tolerant systems, autonomous and interoperable systems, dependability and performance modeling (including IEEE FTCS, IEEE DSN, IEEE SRDS, SAFECOMP, EDCC, HASE, ISAS, IEEE ICDCS, ACM SAC (DADS track)).
She has been member of the SC of DSN during the years 2008-2011 and is member of the SC of EDCC since 2009. She is a member of the IEEE Computer Society and of the IFIP WG10.4 on Dependable Computing and Fault Tolerance.
