In total I am co-author of around 65 articles in international journals/magazines (in publication venues that are considered excellent in my research fields, such as ACM Computing Surveys, IEEE Communication Surveys&Tutorials, IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, ACM Transactions on Internet Technology, IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Networks, Elsevier Pervasive and Mobile Computing Journal, Elsevier Journal of Network and Computer Applications, Elsevier Future Generation Computer Systems, IEEE Computer, IEEE Internet Computing, IEEE Pervasive Computing, IEEE Access, IEEE Communications, IEEE Wireless Communications). In addition, I have served as guest editor for around 15 special issues of international journals/magazines (e.g., IEEE Communications, Elsevier Pervasive and Mobile Computing J., Elsevier J. Network and Computing Applications, and Springer Mobile Networks and Applications J.). Moreover, I am co-author of around 15 chapters in international peer-reviewed books and of around 110 additional papers presented in international conferences organized by the primary professional associations and publishers (IEEE, ACM, Springer, …).

About organization and reviewing activities, I am Editor-in-Chief of the MDPI Computers Journal (2017-) and I am (or have been) member of the Editorial Boards of several international journals/magazines, among which IEEE Transactions on Computers (2011-2015), IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management (2011-), IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (2008-2017), IEEE Communications Magazine (2003-2011), Elsevier Pervasive and Mobile Computing Journal (2010-), Elsevier Journal on Network and Computing Applications (2015-), Elsevier Journal of Systems Architecture (2003-), Springer Journal of Network and Systems Management (2008-), MDPI Sensors Journal, and SAGE International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks. About most recent conference organization activities, I have served or am serving as Technical Program Co-Chair of IEEE Mobile Cloud 2015, General Co-Chair of Smart Cloud Networks & Systems (SCNS) 2018, Technical Program Co-Chair of ACM Int.
