Agostino Bruzzone
University of Genoa
Brief Bio
Agostino G. Bruzzone began his engineering studies at the Italian Naval Academy with the Faculty of Pisa. After successfully completing this phase, he transferred to the University of Genoa where he earned his doctorship in Mechanical Engineering. Since 1991, he taught "Theories and Techniques of Automatic Control" and in 1992 he became a member of the industrial simulation work group at the ITIM University of Genoa. Currently he is Full Professor at DIPTEM. He has utilized extensively simulation techniques in harbor terminals, maritime trading and sailboat racing sectors. He worked on research projects involving innovative modeling, AI techniques and DOE (design of Experiments); particular attention was focused on the application of Neural Networks and Fuzzy Logic to industrial plant problems using Simulation and Chaos Theory. He has been actively involved in the scientific community from several years and served as Director of the McLeod Institute of Simulation Science (MISS), Associate Vice-President and Member of the Board of the SCS (Society for Modelling & Simulation international), President of the Liophant Simulation, VicePresident of MIMOS (Movimento Italiano di Simulazione) and Italian Point of Contact for the ISAG (International Simulation Advisory Grouyp) and Sim-Serv. Currently he is Director of the M&S NET. He acquired extensive experience as a member of International Technical and Organization Committees (i.e. AI Application of IASTED, AI Conference, ESS, ESM) and as a general coordinator of scientific projects (i.e. General Chair of "Simulation In Industry Conference", "Summer Computer Simulation Conference", "International Mediterranean Modelling Multiconference" and "Web Based Simulation Conference", Program Chair of the "Workshop in Harbor and Logistics Modeling" , Guest Editor for "Special Issue of Harbor and Maritime Simulation" in Simulation , Program Chair of "Engineering Application" in WCSS and Track Chair for Manufacturing in SCSC).


Modeling & Simulation represents a strategic sector to study real problems; therefore agent paradigm and its related theory and methodologies opened in last years new frontiers for advancing the physical, natural, social, military, and information sciences and engineering; the development .
Currently the developments of Intelligent Agents in cooperation with Simulation is providing a new exciting framework for developing new solutions able to and to face the challenges provided by complex systems.
