Salvatore Flavio Pileggi is a research fellow in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (ITEE) at the University of Queensland (Australia). His research currently focuses on different aspects of computational science and eResearch, including, among others, knowledge representation, data semantics, and analytics.

Previously, after a short experience as a software engineer in 2007, he held research positions at top-level institutions in Spain (Polytechnic University of Valencia, 2007-2012), in New Zealand (University of Auckland, 2013-2014), and in France (INRIA & UPMC-LIP6, 2014-2016). In those years, he worked across multiple research areas including (but not limited to) cyber-physical systems, semantic technologies, and cloud computing.

He received an MSc in Computer Engineering from the University of Calabria (Italy) in 2005 and a PhD (cum laude) in Communications from the Polytechnic University of Valencia (Spain) in 2011.

He has authored/co-authored well over 50 research publications, including papers in journals and conferences, as well as book chapters. His first paper (2006) was awarded (Best Paper Award) at ICWMC 2006. In 2012, he edited the book Semantic Interoperability: Issues, Solutions, Challenges.

He is constantly involved in technical committees of selected scientific events, and periodically reviews for top-level international journals. Since 2014, he has served as a reviewer (Featured Reviewer from 2017) for ACM Computing Reviews where he regularly publishes his reviews. He chaired several international workshops (SSW 2010, SSW 2011, IWSI 2011, IWSI 2012, IWCCTA 2011, and UXeLATE 2012), in conjunction with relevant international conferences. He acted as a guest editor for Future Internet (MDPI) in 2012 and 2014.

Recently, he has been actively working on several multi-disciplinary collaborative research projects involving specialists from industry and academia.

What technological features are used in smartphone apps that promote physical activity? A review and content analysis
Mollee J., Middelweerd A., Kurvers R., Klein M. Personal and Ubiquitous Computing 21(4): 633-643, 2017.  Type: Article

A systematic review of the use of mobile technology to promote physical activity is proposed in this paper. The number of apps aimed at healthcare available in commercial stores is strongly and constantly increasing: the underpinning i...


Value and misinformation in collaborative investing platforms
Wang T., Wang G., Wang B., Sambasivan D., Zhang Z., Li X., Zheng H., Zhao B. ACM Transactions on the Web 11(2): 1-32, 2017.  Type: Article

Collaborative investing platforms often rely on the common “wisdom of the crowd” concept in a domain in which even highly paid, well-educated, and experienced professionals make mistakes, providing wrong or inaccura...


Linked data scientometrics in semantic e-science
Narock T., Wimmer H. Computers & Geosciences 100 87-93, 2017.  Type: Article

Semantic web technologies have become increasingly popular within a broad range of domains and disciplines. This paper deals with the application of such technologies in the geosciences. This is a very interesting case because of the e...


Predict Florida tourism trend via using data mining techniques
Kurian G., Chi H.  PEARC17 (Proceedings of the 2017 Conference on Practice and Experience in Advanced Research Computing - Sustainability, Success and Impact, New Orleans, LA, Jul 9-13, 2017) 1-4, 2017.  Type: Proceedings

Rare and unpredictable events (such as terrorism, war, epidemics, and natural disasters) can have a huge impact on tourism dynamics. As small-probability events, those situations are not properly approached by statistical models, which...


Computing semantic similarity of concepts in knowledge graphs
Zhu G., Iglesias C. IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering 29(1): 72-85, 2017.  Type: Article

Semantic similarity expresses the commonality among concepts; therefore, it may play a critical role in a wide range of computational applications. The authors propose a method (wpath) to measure “the semantic similarity betw...
