Keynote presentations - synopsis
Professor at University of Trento, Italy.
Riccardo obtained a Master in Physics at Università degli Studi di Padova and Ph. D in Hydrodynamics. He is now full Professor of Hydrology and Hydraulic Construction at the University of Trento and Director of CUDAM, the Center of excellence of the University of Trento for Advanced Studies of the Environment of Mountain Areas.
He is coauthor of more than 120 papers of which 51 are journal papers, and some on conference proceedings, subjected to peer review and indexed by ISI and/or SCOPUS.
He is co-author of:
- a distributed model of the hydrological cycle with coupled water and energy budgets called GEOtop (http://www.geotop.org)
- an Open Source GIS system, JGrass (http://www.jgrass.org) whose nevelties are now included in gvSIG 2.3.
- a semi-distributed modelling system called JGrass-NewAge built upon the Object Modeling System (OMS3) which promotes a physico-statistical view of river basins hydrology.
- a very complete package of modelling solutions (now in OMS3) for performing hydrological analysis called “The Horton Machine”.
- a set of tools for the management and design of water supply and the urban water cycle.

Presentation title: "Big Geo Data" (PDF)
Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Italy
Technologist at FBK - Centre for Information Technology.
His interest is in the study of the processes of creation of collective knowledge as Wikipedia, OpenStreetMap and the open source community with particular attention to geographical information.
He is strongly involved with the community related to the open knowledge topic.
Actually he is the head of the unit "Digital Commons Lab" in FBK.
The unit is offical node of the Open Data Institute and collaborate with the GovLab of the New York University on the topics of open data impact and the civic technologies.
He is also member of the scientific committee for the Digital Agenda of the Emilia-Romagna region. See complete profile.
