* Agostino G. Bruzzone

Agostino G. Bruzzone began his engineering studies at the Italian Naval Academy with the Faculty of Pisa in 1984. After successfully completing this phase, he transferred to the University of Genoa where he earned his doctorship in Mechanical Engineering.
Since 1991, he has taught "Theories and Techniques of Automatic Control" and in 1992 he has become a member of the industrial simulation work group of Prof. Mosca and Prof. Giribone at the University of Genoa.
He has utilized the simulation techniques in the harbor terminal, maritime trade and sailboat racing sectors.
He worked on a research project involving new modeling designs, AI techniques and DOE (design of Experiments); particular attention is being focused on the application of Neural Networks and Fuzzy Logic to industrial plant problems using Simulation and Chaos Theory.
He has been actively involved in the scientific community from several years as Director of the Genoa Center of MISS, Associate Vice-President of the SCS (Society for Computer Simulation international) and President of the Liophant Simulation Club , Italian Point of Contact for the ISAG (International Simulation Advisory Grouyp).
He acquired extensive experience as a member of International Technical and Organization Committees (i.e. AI Application of IASTED, AI Conference, ESS, ESM) and as a general coordinator of scientific projects (i.e. General Chair of “Simulation In Industry Conference” and “Web Based Simulation Conference” , Program Chair of the “Workshop in Harbor and Logistics Modeling” , Guest Editor for “Special Issue of Harbor and Maritime Simulation” in Simulation , Program Chair of “Engineering Application” in WCSS and Track Chair for Manufacturing in SCSC ).
He has written more than 100 scientific papers in addition to technical and professional reports in partnerships with major companies (i.e. IBM, Fiat Group, Contship, Solvay) and agencies (i.e. Italian Navy, NASA, National Center for Simulation, US Army).
As example, during 2000, he was involved in different Projects as Project Manager or Scientific Responsible such as: FLODAF (Fuzzy Logic Data Fusion Italian Navy), MASC (Modeling & Analysis for Satisfaction of Customers, COOP), DICOSAP (DIP/COOP ERP Support & Applied Planning), LEM (Logistics Educational Module, Ford Motor Co., Boston College, Liophant Simulation Club), HLA University Outreach Program (DoD, Defense Modeling & Simulation Office, McLeod Institutes of Simulation Sciences), PUMA (Project for Ultimate Maintenance, Ansaldo Energia), WILD (Web Integrated Logistics Designer, MURST, Milan & Bari Polytechnic, Firenze/Napoli/L'Aquila/Salerno University, Piaggio Aero Industries, Salver, Plyform, SirioPanel, OMA, Geven, Magnaghi). He was involved, as international expert, in the development of NATO project NIAG SG60 (Simulation Based Design and Virtual Prototyping, NATO).

Currently He is in charge as Industrial Relation Chair in Europe for the Society of Computer Simulation International.
He is Director of the Genoa Centre of the McLeod Institute for Simulation Science and member of the technical committee of the IASTED for AI Applications.
He is founder member and president of the Liophant Simulation Club.
Currently he works in the Department of Production Engineering at the University of Genoa as Professor, in the field of simulator-based applications for industrial plants, developing new methodologies and intelligent system integration techniques.
He teaches “Project Management” and “Industrial Plants” at the University for students in the Mechanical Engineering (4th year), Management Engineering (4th year) and Logistics & Production Engineering (3rd year) degree courses.
