Fabio Martignon - Short Bio

Fabio Martignon obtained the Laurea degree in Telecommunications Engineering in 2001 and a European PhD in Information Technology in 2005, both cum laude, from Politecnico di Milano, earning the Chorafas prize for the best PhD thesis. In 2010 he received the Habilitation Ó Diriger des Recherches (HDR).

Since September 2011 he is Full Professor ("Professeur des UniversitÚs") at UniversitÚ Paris-Sud, working in the Laboratoire de Recherche en Informatique (LRI). Since October 2013, he is Junior Member of the Institut Universitaire de France. From February 2005 to August 2011 he has been assistant professor at the School of Engineering of the University of Bergamo, working in the Department of Information Technology and Mathematical Methods, where he was responsible of the Telecommunication Networks area. He was member of the Department Steering Board, of the BSc and MSc program in Information Engineering, and of the Patent Technical Committee of the University of Bergamo.

In 2004-2006 and 2010 he visited the LIP6 Laboratory, Paris 6 University, where he worked on routing in Wireless Mesh Networks and dynamic resource allocation in Quality of Service networks. In 2008 and 2009 he was invited in the MAESTRO team at INRIA, Sophia Antipolis and Avignon (France), where he worked on the application of Game Theory to telecommunications networks, and in particular to the overlay network design problem and to cognitive radio networks.

He works in cooperation with the Advanced Network Technologies Laboratory (ANTLab), Politecnico di Milano, on research topics like content-centric networks, SDN/NFV, mobile networks, network planning, enhanced flow and congestion control techniques for TCP/IP networks. He further works in cooperation with the Operations Research group in Politecnico di Milano on optimization techniques applied to telecommunication networks.

His research interests include topics related to wireless and wired networks. More specifically, he currently works on the application of Game Theory to telecommunication networks. He works on Content-Centric Networks, on resource allocation in green heterogeneous mobile networks, and on the experimental evaluation of efficient distributed security architectures; he works on the development of mathematical models to solve joint routing and scheduling problems in wireless multi-hop access networks (Fixed Relay Networks), and in the evaluation of transport protocols optimized for heterogeneous wired/wireless networks. He works on the planning and optimization of Virtual Networks, on the development of dynamic resource allocation schemes, and on the development of novel protection techniques in optical networks.

He published on the above topics many papers in scientific journals, 32 of them in the main networking journals (like IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems, IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management, IEEE Transactions on Services Computing, Elsevier Computer Networks, Computer Communications and Ad Hoc Networks, Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing) and in the most prestigious networking conferences, including IEEE Infocom and IEEE ICNP.

He has been the head of the University of Bergamo Research Unit for the PRIN 2009 project GATECOM (GATEway-based architecture for content-centric COMmunity networking) and the PRIN 2007 project SESAME (Scalable Efficient Secure Autonomic MEsh Networks), funded by the Italian Research Ministry. His research activities have occurred within projects funded by the European Union (EuroNGI Network of Excellence), by the Italian Research Ministry (FIRB Vicom and Tango projects) and by several companies (Alcatel, Siemens and Espia).

He is in the Editorial board of Elsevier Computer Communications, the Journal of Networks (Academy Publisher) and the Advances in Internet of Things journal. He has been Publicity chair of the NetGCoop 2014 conference, Demo/Poster chair of the ACM Q2SWinet 2009 conference, and he has served in the program committee of IEEE Infocom 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013, IEEE WCNC 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2012, IEEE VTC Spring 2013, AINTEC 2014 and 2013, NetGCoop 2012 and 2011, GameSec 2011 conferences, the IEEE/IFIP Wireless Days 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009 conferences, ACM Q2SWinet 2010 and 2009, IFIP WSN 2011 and the Med-Hoc-Net 2006 conference. He served as a reviewer for international project proposals (French ANR Blanc International, Italian PRIN 2015 and FIRB "Future in Research"), for the most important networking journals (IEEE Transactions on Networking, IEEE Transactions on Communications, IEEE Communications Letters, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, Elsevier Computer Networks. Computer Communications and Ad Hoc Networks, Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing, Telecommunication Systems, International Journal on Wireless and Optical Communications) and networking conferences (like Infocom, Globecom, ICC, VTC).
