University of Applied Science of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI)

SUPSI is the University of Applied Sciences of Southern Switzerland and is mainly located in the surroundings of Lugano, the principal town in the Swiss Italian-speaking canton Ticino. The overriding goal of SUPSI is the promotion of technological development and technological transfer. Besides basic education, SUPSI offers postgraduate courses and applied research facilities to local, national and international industries. SUPSI consists to date of about 750 students and 200 staff members. SUPSI participates with the Networking Lab (NetLab) to this project.


The undefinedNetworking Laboratory (NetLab) has a profound expertise in the most innovative research topics related to the wireless communication networking and technologies, including sensor networking, ad-hoc networking, cross layering, delay-tolerant networking, mesh networking, and opportunistic networking. NetLab is currently involved in five EC-funded projects (EU-MESH, MONARCA and SCAMPI in the FP7, Haggle and MEMORY in the FP6), in several other national and international projects, and it is active in the EU FIRE initiative. NetLab is very active within the international community of networking and plays a key role in the organization of major events, including IEEE MASS, IEEE Percom, IEEE WoWMoM, ACM Mobihoc, ACM SenSys. NetLab's editorial activity includes IEEE Communication Magazine and Elsevier's Ad Hoc Networks.


Silvia Giordano is a Professor at SUPSI. She is in the directorate of the Institute of Systems for Informatics and Networking (ISIN), and head of the Networking Lab. Previously, she was on the faculty of the EPFL and of the University of Pisa. Since October 2001, she is also an associate researcher at CNR, Pisa. She is co-editor of the book "Mobile Ad Hoc Networking" (IEEE-Wiley 2004). She has published extensively on journals, magazines and conferences in the areas of quality of services, traffic control, wireless and mobile ad hoc networks. She is the series co-editor of the new series on adhoc and sensor networks of the IEEE Communication Magazine. She is an area editor of the Elsevier ComCom. She is also Editor of Ad Hoc & Sensor Wireless Networks journal, OCPscience. She was co-founder of PerSeNS, general chair of WoWMoM 2009, program vice-chair of PerCom 2009, program chair of MASS 2007, tutorial chair of MobiHoc 2006, general chair of the 2005 edition of IFIP conference WONS, co-founder of AOC. She is a board member of the ACM Networking Networking Women community (N2Women), and senior member of IEEE, ACM and IFIP WG 6.8.

Anna Förster is currently a postdoctoral researcher with NetLab at SUPSI. She received her M.Sc. in Computer Science and Aerospace Engineering from the Free University of Berlin, Germany, in 2005 and her PhD in Computer Science from the University of Lugano, Switzerland, in 2009. Her current research interests include applications of artificial intelligence to communications and deployments of wireless sensor networks, as well as software architectures and automated deployments of wireless ad hoc networks. The driving theme of her work is to make sensor networks robust, self-automated, efficient and easily accessible by non-experts in any environment and any application. She serves as a technical program member for various conferences and workshops and as a reviewer for several top journals in the area of wireless sensor networking. Additionally, she is a member of the steering committee for the OMNeT++ workshop, a board member of the ACM Networking Networking Women community, and a member of the organizing committee for the 8th ACM SenSys Conference in Zurich, Switzerland.

Daniele Puccinelli is currently a postdoctoral researcher with NetLab. He holds a Ph.D. and an M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame, USA, and an engineering degree from the University of Pisa, Italy. Prior to his graduate studies at Notre Dame, he spent a two year stint in industry working at Fiat-General Motors Powertrain in Torino, Italy. At SUPSI, he conducts research primarily in the field of wireless sensor networks. His research interests include the impact of the properties of low-power wireless on the upper layers, the impact of the network topology on protocol performance, and collection protocols. He teaches Wireless Networking courses at SUPSI and the University of Lugano. He won the Best Demo Award at IEEE WoWMoM'09. He has served as Program Chair for the IEEE WoWMoM'09 Ph.D. and Work In Progress Forum and for the workshop PerSeNS, co-located with IEEE Percom 2010.

Alessandro Puiatti received the degree in Electrical Engineering from the Politecnico of Torino in 1994. From 1994 to 1996 he was with the Laboratory of Bioengineering of the Politecnico di Torino, where he worked on several research and development projects in the domain of embedded systems for neurophysiology applications. From 1996 to 1999 he worked as clinical engineer and was responsible for the management of hospital technologies by the Poliedra spa in Turin. In 1999 he moved to Switzerland, where he worked with the Medway SA until 2002, for the Engineering Division, as director and responsible for the management of research and development of medical devices in the fields of Neurology, Orthopedic and Analysis Laboratory. Since 2002 he works at the Department of Innovative Technologies of the University of Applied Sciences of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) as a lecturer and research scientist. He is the co-founder of the Networking Lab, where he currently holds the title of senior research scientist. He is involved in the most important national and international research projects of the NetLab. His research interests include mobile ad hoc and sensor networks and man-machine interfaces. He teaches several courses in the area of Networking and Wireless and Mobile Networking. He serves as technical program committee member for several international conferences and as a reviewer for major international journals. In 2009, he founded the International Workshop on Interdisciplinary Research on E-Health Services and Systems (IREHSS), co-located with the IEEE International Symposium on a World of Wireless, Mobile and Multimedia Networks (WoWMoM). He has served as the General Co-Chair of the first two editions of IREHSS.
