agopic.jpg Agostino G. Bruzzone began his engineering studies at the Italian Naval Academy with the Faculty of Pisa in 1984. After successfully completing this phase, he transferred to the University of Genoa where he earned his doctorship in Mechanical Engineering.
Since 1991, he has taught "Theories and Techniques of Automatic Control" and in 1992 he has become a member of the industrial simulation work group at the ITIM University of Genoa.
Currently he is Full Professor in DIPTEM.
He has utilized extensively simulation techniques in harbor terminals, maritime trading and sailboat racing sectors.
He worked on research projects involving innovative modeling, AI techniques and DOE (design of Experiments); particular attention was focused on the application of Neural Networks and Fuzzy Logic to industrial plant problems using Simulation and Chaos Theory.
He has been actively involved in the scientific community from several years and served as Director of the McLeod Institute of Simulation Science (MISS), Associate Vice-President and Member of the Board of the SCS (Society for Modelling & Simulation international), President of the Liophant Simulation, VicePresident of MIMOS (Movimento Italiano di Simulazione) and Italian Point of Contact for the ISAG (International Simulation Advisory Grouyp) and Sim-Serv.
He acquired extensive experience as a member of International Technical and Organization Committees (i.e. AI Application of IASTED, AI Conference, ESS, ESM) and as a general coordinator of scientific projects (i.e. General Chair of “Simulation In Industry Conference”, "Summer Computer Simulation Conference", "International Mediterranean Modelling Multiconference" and “Web Based Simulation Conference”, Program Chair of the “Workshop in Harbor and Logistics Modeling” , Guest Editor for “Special Issue of Harbor and Maritime Simulation” in Simulation , Program Chair of “Engineering Application” in WCSS and Track Chair for Manufacturing in SCSC ).
He has written more than 150 scientific papers in addition to technical and professional reports in partnerships with major companies (i.e. IBM, Fiat Group, Contship, Solvay) and agencies (i.e. Italian Navy, NASA, National Center for Simulation, US Army).
As example, during 2000, he was involved in different Projects as Project Manager or Scientific Responsible such as: FLODAF (Fuzzy Logic Data Fusion Italian Navy), MASC (Modeling & Analysis for Satisfaction of Customers, COOP), DICOSAP (DIPTEM/COOP ERP Support & Applied Planning), LEM (Logistics Educational Module, Ford Motor Co., Boston College, Liophant Simulation Club), HLA University Outreach Program (DoD, Defense Modeling & Simulation Office, McLeod Institutes of Simulation Sciences), PUMA (Project for Ultimate Maintenance, Ansaldo Energia), WILD (Web Integrated Logistics Designer, MURST, Milan & Bari Polytechnic, Firenze/Napoli/L'Aquila/Salerno University, Piaggio Aero Industries, Salver, Plyform, SirioPanel, OMA, Geven, Magnaghi). In the same year he was involved, as international expert, in the development of NATO project NIAG SG60 (Simulation Based Design and Virtual Prototyping, NATO).
He served as Industrial Relation Chair in SCS Europe and as Director of the Technical Council of "SIMulation applications in Management, PLanning & forEcaSTing" for the Society of Computer Simulation International.
He is International Director and Genoa Site Director of the Genoa Centre of the McLeod Institute of Simulation Science (an Institution with over 25 Centers distributed worldwide: China, USA, UK, Italy, France, Germany, Canada etc.).
He is founder member and president of the Liophant Simulation .
He is also and member of Who's Who, IEEE, IASTED, ANIMP etc. Currently he works in the Department of Production Engineering and Mathematical Modelling (DIPTEM) at the University of Genoa as Full Professor, in the field of simulator-based applications for industrial plants, developing new methodologies and intelligent system integration techniques.
He teaches “Project Management” and "Industrial Logistics” at the University for students in the Mechanical Engineering (4th year), Management Engineering (4th year) and Logistics & Production Engineering (3rd year) degree courses.
