Alessandro De Gloria is full professor in electronics engineering and President of the MSc course in Electronic Engineering at the University of Genoa. He currently teaches: Computer Graphics Games and Simulation (10 CFU) in the Electronic Engineering Master Degree; Computer Graphics in the Civil Engineering Master Degree (4 CFU) and 3D Visualization for the Cultural Heritage in the Fine Arts Master Degree (6 CFU).
Prof. has been one of the founders of the Liguria District of Technologies (SIIT), of which he has been Director of the Technical Scientific Committee until 2012. Within the “Gruppo Elettronica” (GE), the Italian association of Electronic Engineering university professors, he is responsible of the Application sector at national level, and of the overall Genoa local Unit. His main research interests concern Embedded Systems, Applications for Smartphone and Tablet, Vehicular Cooperation and Safety, Human-Computer Interaction (HMI), Digital Cultural Heritage, Technology-Enhanced Learning, and Serious Games. He has been international or local responsible for 10+ EU research projects in the last 15 years, in the fields of automotive, serious gaming and technology enhanced learning.
Prof. Alessandro De Gloria is the coordinator of the Game and Learning Alliance (GaLA), the Network of Excellence (NoE) on Serious Games within the Technology-Enhanced Learning area founded by the European Union (EU) 7th Research Framework IST-ICT. The NoE gathers the cutting-the-edge European R&D organizations on Serious Games (31 partners). He is also the coordinator of the Erasmus Lifelong Learning FEXI eSG project on promoting entrepreneurship through serious games in universities. He is also responsible at the work package level in the TEAM project (founded by EU FP7) about the application of serious games for car driving.
Prof. De Gloria is president and founder of the Serious Games Society (SGS) (www.seriousgamessociety.org ), a cultural association that was born in 2012 as a spin-off of the GaLA NoE and that is continuing its aims after the end of the EU funding. The SGS publishes the International Journal of Serious Games, a specialized scientific and technological journal, and manages the GaLA Conference, that has reached its third edition in 2014.
In the field of multimedia systems and technology-enhanced learning, prof. De Gloria has been the coordinator of E-Tour, a pioneering FP5 IST-ICT project on mobile applications, in particular on tourism. He was work-package leader for technical design and implementation in other FP IST-ICT projects such as Enhanced Learning Unlimited (ELU), on educational interactive TV, Games@Large, on pervasive entertainment, and Vital Mind, on brain-training applications for the interactive TV.
In the automotive field, the ELIOS lab, led by prof. De Gloria, has collaborations with the top European car manufacturers and suppliers. The lab has designed and implemented an integrated, configurable information system for the driver, with the aim to integrate information sources and interactive devices in order to minimize the cognitive overload and maximize safety. The activity was held in particular in EU FP ICT projects such as: Active, Comunicar and Aide projects. In Edel, ELIOS developed a night-vision system based on Near InfraRed sensors. In the SAFESPOT IP (cooperative systems in vehicular networks), De Gloria has been the responsible for the workpackage on development of applications based on vehicle-
infrastructure communication. In the TEAM IST-ICT IP ELIOS is developing a serious game platform for driver performance assessment and coaching on cooperative systems for low-carbon multi-modal mobility and transportation. In FABRIC, ELIOS is developing a navigation support module dedicated to electrical vehicles. In the Crystal and EMC2 Artemis projects, ELIOS Lab is creating models of vehicle components for safety/security-oriented design support and simulation.
Prof. De Gloria has also worked in the field of embedded systems and application-specific computer architectures. In particular, his interests concern both the design at microcircuit level of the fundamental blocks of a micro-architecture, and the definition of the requirements and characteristics of the architecture and its interactions/interfaces with the environment. He has also optimized digital architectures for execution of Java code. Among the achieved results, there is the realization of a complete synthesis system for delay-insensitive circuits, the design of an asynchronous micro-controller with delay-insensitive cells, the study of circuit techniques aimed at the solution of asynchronous circuit testing.
Prof. De Gloria authored 200+ papers in peer-reviewed international journals and conferences on the above-cited topics.
