He was one of the promoters of the TC-37 “Measurements and Networking” technical committee of the IEEE Instrumentation & Measurement Society and General Chairman of the first (M&N2011), second (M&N2013), third (M&N2015) and fourth edition (M&N2017) of the IEEE International Workshop on Measurements & Networking. He is Representative of Italy in the IEC Validation Team-VT 60050 for maintenance and management of the International Electrotechnical Vocabulary and member of the Italian Association “GMEE-Electrical and Electronic Measurements Group”, of CNIT, National Inter-university Consortium for Telecommunications, of the Technical Committee CT 1/25 “Terminology, Quantities and Units” of CEI (Italian Electrotechnical Committee).
He is corresponding member of the Accademia Pontaniana in Naples, the oldest Italian academy, with almost 600 years of history, which has always brought together renowned Neapolitan scholars.
In 2009, he was awarded the IET Communications Premium for the paper entitled “Performance measurement of IEEE 802.11b-based networks affected by narrowband interference through cross-layer measurements” (published in IET Communications, vol. 2, No. 1, January 2008).
In 2013, he was awarded the prestigious recognition "IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement Outstanding Reviewer".
The IEEE Instrumentation & Measurement Society Italy Chapter, which he has been chairing since 2015, was awarded in 2016 the prestigious recognition “I&M Society Best Chapter Award” by the IEEE Instrumentation & Measurement Society, in 2017 the prestigious recognition “Most Improved Membership Chapter for 2016” and in 2018 the prestigious recognition “Most Innovative Chapter 2018” by the IEEE Italy Section.
He is the author or co-author of about 300 international scientific articles, more than one-third of which published in relevant international journals with impact factor.

Title: From Vehicular Networking to 5G and Mobile Edge Computing to 6G and Virtual Edge Computing

Abstract: We will discuss the challenges and opportunities of the connected cars vision in relation to the need for distributed data management solutions ranging from the vehicle to the mobile edge and to the data centers. Vehicular networking solutions have been investigated for more than a decade but recent standardization efforts just enable a broad use of this technology to build large scale Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). Modern 5G networks promise to provide all means for communication in this domain, particularly when integrating Mobile Edge Computing (MEC). However, it turns out that despite the many advantages, it is unlikely that such services will be provided with sufficient coverage. As a novel concept, vehicle micro clouds have been proposed that bridge the gap between fully distributed vehicular networks based on short range device to device communication and 5G-based infrastructure. Using selected application examples, we assess the advantages of such systems. We conclude the talk by shedding light on future virtual edge computing concepts that will enable edge computing even considering minimal deployment and coverage of 5G MEC.
