Enrico Vicario is a Full Professor of Computer Science and Engineering (IngInf05 - 09/H1). Since November 2016, he is the Head of the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Florence.
He is vice-President of the Italian Association of Computer Science and Engineering - GII (Sept.'13-Sept'17).
He was born in 1965, received the Master Degree in Electronics Engineering (cum laude) in 1990 and the Ph.D. in Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Florence in 1994. From 1994 to 1998 he was an Assistant Professor at the Engineering School of the University of Florence. From 1998 to 2002, he was Associate Professor at the Universities of Ancona and then Florence. He is a Full Professor since 2002. He was a member of the Academic Senate of the University of Florence from Nov.2012 to Nov.2016.
He works in the area of Software Engineering, at the Software Science and Technology Lab, with a current scientific focus on model driven development, verification, and evaluation of concurrent systems with non-deterministic or stochastic durations, and with a practical interest in software architectures and development methods. In the past, he also worked on visual formalisms and matching algorithms for search by visual similarity in image archives. He is author of more than 90 papers indexed on Scopus, with more than 20 papers appeared in international journals, and of one scientific monography (a more extensive list of publications).
He is a member of the steering committee of QEST and DCIT. He served as member of the program committee of QEST'17, SmartComp'17, ICPE'17, DOCEIS'17, and QEST'16, MASCOTS'16, SmartComp'16, DOCEIS'16, QEST'15, QEST'12, QEST'11, FORMATS'14, FORMATS'13, FORMATS'10, Valuetools'15, Valuetools'14, Valuetools'13, Valuetools'12,Valuetools'11,Valuetools'09, MB4CP'15, DCIT'15, ICATPN05, ECRTS03. He served as general chair of QEST'14 and EPEW'14, chair of the organizing committee of FORMATS'14 and FMICS'14, Program co-chair of FORMATS'15, invited speaker at MmbDft'16, DCIT'15, QAPL'14.
He carries out an intense activity of technology transfer in the area of SW engineering methods and architectures, through several competitive projects and contracts with public administrations and enterprises. Among these:
He presently teaches "Software Engineering" (6CFU undergraduate), Software Architectures and Methodologies (9CFU master), and a short module (3CFU master) that maintains the stochastic part of the contents of the previous class on Verification and Testing Methods, now embedded in the course on Software Dependability given by Alessandro Fantechi.
In the past he also taught "Verification and Testing Methods", "Foundations of Computer Programming" (Fondamenti di Informatica), "Internet SW Technologies", "Computer Architectures", "Operating Systems", "Usability Engineering". He is the author of the monographic book "Fondamenti di Programmazione: linguaggio c, strutture dati e algoritmi elementari, c++".
He is a faculty member of the PhD program in Smart Computing, jointly delivered by the Universities of Florence, Pisa, and Siena.
