Curriculum vitae

Zeynep Kiziltan is an assistant professor at the Faculty of Mathematical, Physical and Natural Sciences of the University of Bologna since November 2006. She was a post-doctoral researcher between June 2004 and October 2006 at the Department of Electronics, Computer Sciences and Systems of the same university. She received her Ph.D. degree in March 2004 from the University of Uppsala (Sweden) where she was also appointed as "docent" (associate professor). The Ph.D. thesis of Dr. Kiziltan has won the 2004 Artificial Intelligence Dissertation Award of the European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence.


Dr. Kiziltan's research focuses on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Constraint Programming (CP). She is mainly interested in modelling, global constraints, symmetry breaking, and the integration of local search techniques into CP. She is the author of several scientific articles published in prestigious international journals and conferences, such as Artificial Intelligence, Constraints, AI Communications, ACM Communications, Annals of Operations Research, IJCAI, AAAI, ECAI, CP, and CP-AI-OR.


Dr. Kiziltan extensively collaborates with research groups abroad. She has been invited to international gatherings and universities (both italian and foreign) to deliver talks on her research results. Dr. Kiziltan is involved in several professional activities. She has served on the programme committees of prestigious international conferences and workshops on CP and AI, such as IJCAI, AAAI, ECAI, CP, MICAI, SARA, LION, SymCon, RCRA, and is a referee for the journals Theoretical Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Constraints, European Journal of Operational Research, and  International Journal of Reasoning-based Intelligent Systems, and also for conferences such as  SAT, ICLP and PPDP. Besides, she has been the co-chair of the CP'06 and CP'05 Doctoral Programmes, the main organiser of the IJCAI'05 Workshop on Modelling and Solving Problems with Constraints, and the co-organiser of the CP'04 Workshop on Symmetry and Constraint Satisfaction Problems.
