Curriculum vitae

Rebecca Montanari graduated (summa cum laude) in Electronic Engineering at the University of Bologna in 1996. In 1997-1998 she had been working for a company, CryptoNet S.r.l., focusing on security technologies enabling electronic commerce applications. She received a Ph.D. (2001) degree in Computer Science Engineering at the Department of Electronics, Computer Science and Systems (DEIS) of the University of Bologna discussing the doctoral dissertation “Security Models for Mobile Agents”. She is Associate Professor since 2005 at DEIS, University of Bologna. The research interests of Rebecca Montanari focus mainly on policy-based networking and systems/service management, mobile agent systems, security management mechanisms, and tools in both traditional and mobile systems. In particular, she has a strong know-how and experience on middleware for self-managing and self-adapting distributed services, based on semantically enhanced metadata. Rebecca Montanari co-authored more than 50 papers published in international journal/magazine articles and in other venues (books, book chapters, conferences, and workshops). From the scientific point of view, Rebecca Montanari has participated to the technical program committee of numerous international conferences, including for instance: IEEE International Workshop on Policies for Distributed Systems and Networks (Policy), IEEE-ACM International Conference on Mobile Data (MDM), IEEE Symposium on Multi-Agent Security and Survivability (MAS&S), IEEE International Symposium on Computers and Communications (ISCC), The Semantic Web and Policy Workshop (SWPW06). The above international research activities in terms of publication and of participation in reviewing/organizational work demonstrate the international visibility of Rebecca Montanari, especially in the innovative research area of middleware for mobile services. In addition, Rebecca Montanari has established several collaborations with state-of-the-art research centers to carry out research activities of her interest, such as Nokia Research Center Cambridge (Ora Lassila's research group), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Lalana Kagal), Imperial College London (Morris Sloman's research group), Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, Pensacola-USA (Jeffrey M. Bradshaw), as proved also by several joint publications.
