  • Interessi di ricerca
    Gli attuali interessi di ricerca di Vincenzo D'Andrea sono principalmente legati all'interazione tra utenti e sviluppatori di sistemi informativi, al software libero ed open source, al ruolo delle tecnologie nelle comunita' virtuali, alla definizione e alle implicazioni del paradigma dei Service Oriented Computing.
    In passato è stato inoltre coinvolto in attività di ricerca su Elaborazione di Immagini, Automi Cellulari, Ambienti Progettazione Collaborativa, Sistemi Informatici di Ausilio all’Apprendimento, e Sistemi Informativi Inter-Aziendali basati su Web. Vincenzo D'Andrea ha coordinato progetti di ricerca sia locali che internazionali (a finanziamento CEE).



  • Participatory Design
    In 2006 I coordinated the local organization of the Participatory Design Conference, in Trento. The PDC is a bi-annual conference, which is the reference conference for the study of participatory methodologies, in particular in the area of Information Systems. In 2008 the conference will be held in Bloomington, IN, USA. I'm collaborating in the organization of PDC as a member of the conference Steering Committee.
  • Service Oriented Computing
    Since 2003 I am actively involved in this research area. I am a co-founder of the series of conferences "International Conference on Service Oriented Computing", being part of the organization of each edition (general chair in 2008). I am also the coordinator of a Research Unit in the EU-founded Research Project COMPAS. This project is focusing on the problem of compliance within Service Oriented Systems. I am also involved in the Working Group of ODRL-S, a language for the description of service licenses. I have been co-editor for two issues of the International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, on theme of Service Oriented Computing.
  • Virtual Communities of Practice
    From 2001 to 2007 I was the coordinator of a Research Unit in a research project on technology mediated collaboration and on learning within virtual communities of practice. These project were founded by the National Ministry for Research.
  • Free and Open Source Software
    In this area, my research interest are the communities of FOSS developers, and the socio-technical process that appear within these communities. Besides being involved in several conferences and seminars on this subject, I am supervising four PhD students working in this area.
  • Collaborative Software Development
    I have a long standing collaboration with colleagues which run a small software company in Indianapolis, IN, USA. The company, IIT (Intelligent Information Technology) has a significant research interest in the area of collaborative software development and in modeling software systems and frameworks. A joint paper on this subject receive the best paper award at the 2007 edition of IEEE-CTS (Collaborative Technologies and Systems).
  • Previous work
    During my PhD in Computer Engineering I focused my research on computer vision. The context of the work was the development of support systems for car driving. The technology was based on massively parallel architectures, more precisely on Cellular Automata. I later focused my work on the use of multimedia and other technologies as mediators for communication. This work has been focused in a variety of contexts, such as remote concurrent design in the automotive sector, teaching support systems, and web-based business collaboration.
