Keynote Speaker I 

Prof. Fabio Roli, IEEE&IAPR Fellow

University of Cagliari, Italy

Fabio Roli is a Full Professor of Computer Engineering at the University of Cagliari, Italy, and Director of the Pattern Recognition and Applications laboratory ( He is partner and R&D manager of the company Pluribus One that he co-founded ( ). He has been doing research on the design of pattern recognition and machine learning systems for thirty years. Fabio Roli’s research over the past twenty-eight years has addressed the design of pattern recognition and machine learning systems in the context of real security applications. He has provided outstanding contributions to the fields of ensemble learning and adversarial machine learning, and he has played a leading role in the establishment and advancement of this research themes. Prof. Roli is one of the pioneers of the use of machine learning for computer security. He is often invited to give keynote speeches and tutorials on adversarial machine learning and data-driven technologies for security applications. He is (or has been) the PI of dozens of R&D projects, including the leading European projects on Security & Privacy CyberRoad and ILLBuster. His current h-index is 66 according to Google Scholar (December 2019). He has been appointed Fellow of the IEEE and Fellow of the International Association for Pattern Recognition. He was a member of NATO advisory panel for Information and Communications Security, NATO Science for Peace and Security (2008 – 2011).
