Agostino G. Bruzzone
Agostino G. Bruzzone began his engineering studies at
the Italian Naval Academy with the Faculty of Pisa.
After successfully completing this phase, he transferred to the University of Genoa and achieved
his doctorship in Mechanical Engineering.
Since early '90, he has taught "Theories and Techniques of
and in 1992 he became member of the
industrial simulation work group at the ITIM University of Genoa.
Currently he is Full Professor in DIME,
University of Genoa.
He has utilized extensively innovative technologies & simulation in logistics, industrial plants, project management, business, defense,
homeland security, autonomous systems, robotics, crisis management, harbors, port terminals, marine domain and sailboat racing sector.
He works on Research & Development (R&D) Projects involving
innovative Modeling, Interoperable Simulation, AI (Artificial Intelligence), Chaos
Theory, IA (Intelligent Agents), DOE (Design of
Experiments), Serious Games, Virtual & Augmented Reality (VR & AR); particular attention was focused on
the application of Neural Networks, GAs, KBS and Fuzzy Logic to
industrial plant problems combining the use of Modeling and Simulation.
He has been actively involved in the Scientific Community
from several years and served as General Director
of the McLeod Institute of Simulation Science (MISS),
Associate Vice-President, Executive Vice President and Member of the Board of the
SCS (Society for Modelling & Simulation International),
President of the Liophant Simulation, President of Simulation Team
VicePresident and Member of the Board of MIMOS (Movimento Italiano di Simulazione),
General Director and Vice Director of M&S Net,
Industrial Relation Chair in SCS Europe,
Italian Point of Contact for the ISAG (International Simulation Advisory Grouyp) and
He acquired extensive experience as a member of International
Technical and Organization Committees (i.e. AI Application of IASTED,
AI Conference, ESS, ESM, AMS, etc.) and as a General Coordinator
of Scientific Initiatives (i.e. General Chair of
“Simulation in Industry Conference”,
"Summer Computer Simulation Conference",
"International Mediterranean Modelling Multiconference",
International Workshop on Applied Modeling & Simulation
and "Web Based Simulation Conference",
Program Chair of the “Workshop in Harbor and Logistics Modeling”,
Guest Editor for several special issues of Int.Journals (e.g."Special Issue of Harbor and Maritime Simulation" and "Supply Chain Simulation"),
Member of the Editorial Board of Simulation, Program Chair of “Engineering Application” in
WCSS and Track Chair for Manufacturing in SCSC, etc.).
He has written more than 250 scientific papers in International Journals and Conferences, in addition to books, technical/professional reports in partnerships
with major companies (e.g. IBM, ENI, Contship, Solvay, CSC, Ford)
and agencies (e.g. NASA, European Defence Agency, NATO, National Center for Simulation, Italian MoD, Italian Navy, US Army, DGA).
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 (DIPTEM/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).
In the same year he was involved, as international expert, in the development of NATO project NIAG SG60 (Simulation Based Design and Virtual Prototyping, NATO).
Agostino Bruzzone is in charge as Director of the Technical Council of "SIMulation applications in Management, PLanning & forEcaSTing" for the Society of Computer Simulation International.
He is Simulation Team MITIM DIPTEM Genoa Director
for the McLeod
Institute of Simulation Science
(an Institution with 28 Centers distributed worldwide: Brazil, China, USA, UK, Italy, France, Germany, Canada, Spain etc.) and
he is General Director of M&S Net an International Network involving 34 Centers.
He is founder member and president of the Liophant Simulation and of the Simulation Team.
He has been enrolled also in Who's Who, IEEE, IASTED, ANIMP, SCS, MIMOS etc.
Currently he works in the Department of Industrial Production, Thermoenergy, Engineering and Mathematical Modelling (DIME, formerly DIPTEM, DIPEM, DIP and ITIM) at the University of Genoa as Full Professor.
He is active in the field of simulator-based applications for industrial plants, developing new methodologies and intelligent system integration techniques.
He teaches “Project Management” and "Industrial Logistics” at the University for students in many different sectors including Mechanical Engineering (5th year), Industrial Engineering (3rd year), Management Engineering (4th year) and Industrial, Logistics & Production Engineering (3rd year) degree courses;
He teaches "Modelling & Simulation", "M&S for Biomedical System" and VV&A for the DIMS PhD Program (PhD program in Integrated Mathematical Modelling and Simulation).
He is President of the MIPET (International Master Program in Industrial Plant Engineering & Technologies - Master in Impiantistica Industriale e Grandi Impianti) of Genoa University ongoing yearly since 2010 and sponsored by major Industries.
He served as M&S Project Leader for NATO Science and Technology Organization, Center for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE) and he is actively involved in many NATO Groups and initiatives.
