Curriculum vitae

Giulio Casciola is currently Full Professor of Numerical Analysis at the University of Bologna, Italy.
He received the degree of Laurea Summa cum Laude in Mathematics from the University of Bologna in 1980.
He received a Postgraduate Master's degree in Theory and Application of Computing Machinery from the University of Bologna in 1981.
From 1983 to 1992 he was an Assistant Professor at the University of Bologna, Italy.
From 1992 to 2001 he was an Associated Professor at the University of Bologna, Italy.
From 2001 he is Full Professor of Numerical Analysis.
From 1992 to 2000 he coordinated single and strategic CNR (Italian National Research Council) and GNCS (National Group of Scientific Calculus) projects in parallel computation, image_processing, geometric modelling and computer graphics.
From 1998 to 2000, during the National project “Numerical Analysis: Methods and Mathematical Software”, he was the project manager and main developer of a research software, called XCModel (
From 1998 to 2001 he was Professor at the SAMI “School for the Mathematical Applications in Industry” of the University of Milano Bicocca, Italy.
From 2002 to 2006 he was Member of the Master Scientific Committee in “Mathematics for the Applications” of the University of Bologna, Italy.
From 2001 he is Member of the PhD Committee in “Computational Mathematics” of the University of Padova, Italy.
He has been referee of several international journals and referee for national research projects.
He attended many national and international conferences, he was member of Scientific Committee of International Conferences and was invited speaker as in Academy than in Industry.
He was teacher of several courses: Numerical Analysis, Numerical Methods for Computer Graphics, Geometric Modelling and CAD Systems, Computer Graphics, Computer Programming.
Giulio Casciola has written over 70 research papers on the topics of numerical approximation, parallel computation, geometric modelling and computer graphics.
His research activity was characterized by both theoretical researches and design and development of scientific software.
The most ambitious and complex software project which was realized is XCModel, a whole CAD system based on NURBS and trimming NURBS.
It was designed to be a research and teaching laboratory in order to experiment and learn. This software is in continuous evolution and, at present, it is released in its fourth version as a public domain software. This software is the result of Giulio Casciola's experience of over fifteen years in geometric modelling and computer graphics research and software development.
