Orazio Tomarchio received his Degree in Computer Engineering from the Engineering Faculty of University of Catania (Italy) in 1995. Since then he has been engaged in research on distributed systems with the Department of Computer and Telecommunications Engineering of Catania University. In 1999 he received the Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Palermo. The Ph.D. thesis discussed was entitled "Design and implementation of a mobile agent platform and its application for distributed systems management". He is currently assistant professor with the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering of University of Catania, beginning from February 2002. He has been engaged in teaching several degree and master courses mainly focused on software engineering, security and programming in distributed systems. The scientific activity of Dr. Tomarchio was initially focused on studying distributed systems, particularly with regard to innovative programming and management techniques based on the mobile code paradigm. Recently his scientific interests have been also focused on middleware for mobile ad-hoc network and for personal and ubiquitous computing, mobile P2P computing, Grid and service oriented architectures, security and SLA in Cloud computing, and semantic technologies.
