Short bio

Angelo Di Iorio holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science. His PhD thesis covers markup languages and document engineering areas, being focused on design patterns for digital documents and automatic processes of analysis and segmentation.

His research interests also include: pagination and sophisticated templating, simplified authoring and publishing processes, collaborative editing, versioning and diff-ing techniques, metadata and automatic generation of semantic annotations.

From February to May 2006, he was visiting researcher at the Scholarly Technology Group of the Brown University (Providence, RI, USA). He worked with Dr. Elli Mylonas and Prof. David Durand on Xanalogical models and collaborative editing tools on the Web. From October 2007 to February 2008, and from October 2008 to February 2009, he visited HPLabs, Bristol, UK. In the first visit, he worked with Dr. John Lumley on topogical descriptions of layouts and automatic formatting; in the second one he joined the same research group to work on content inclusions and composite documents. From July 2007 to September 2011 he has been member of the XSL-FO Working Group of the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) . He worked on the design notes of XSL-FO 2.0 and the following working drafts and contributed to the transition of the group into the XML Print and Page Layout group.

He has been involved in several research projects among which: TAF, in collaboration with CINI (Consorzio Interuniversitario Nazionale per l’Informatica) and the Senate of Italian Republic, for the automatic detection of differences between versions of acts and high-quality formatting of those differences, ISAPRESS, in collaboration with ‘il Mulino’ publishing house, for the creation of a cross-format repository of digital resources based on XML conversion tools, ‘A3 Accessible Learning Environment’ for the generation of e-learning material through semi-automatic conversion processes. In 2007 he was member of the Chameleon Federation supported by HP for researching on digital publishing and variable data printing. In the same year he worked on the BATHOS project sponsored by HP Philanthropy Programme on multi-channel publishing environments.

In 2009 he organized the 1st ACM Workshop on New Forms of Xanalogical Storage and Functions, as co-chair together with Prof. Fabio Vitali (University of Bologna) and Prof. Jamie Blustein (Dalhousie University, Canada). He has been co-chair of the Web Technologies track at the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing in the last three editions (2010 – 2012) and in the next one (2013). He served as Program Committee (PC) member in several international conferences and workshops, among which ICWE, UMAP, SAC, ITA, HSI, HT.

He has published 12 research papers in peer reviewed international journals and books, and more than 40 papers in International Conferences and Workshops. His current H-index on Google Scholar is 13.
