Luigi Cerulo is an Assistant Professor at the University of Sannio in Benevento (Italy), since April 2009, and Adjunct Researcher at the Institute of Genetic Research “Gaetano Salvatore” (BioGem) in Ariano Irpino (Italy). He received the Laurea degree in computer engineering from the University of Sannio, Benevento, Italy, in 2001, and the Ph.D. degree in software engineering from the same university with a thesis on mining software development data to understand the phenomenon of software evolution. Cerulo began his research in software evolution and maintenance, particularly data mining algorithms and empirical methods, to understand how people design, develop, and evolve software systems. He turned to bioinformatics around 2007, and currently he is interested also in developing data mining algorithms to reconstruct regulatory mechanisms in cells from genomics data. Cerulo participated in various national and international research projects related to information extraction, automatic classification of web documents, and software migration. Currently, he is the Coordinator of the Bioinformatics Research Unit of a national research project (FIRB2012) for the discovery of noncoding RNA implicated in neurotrophin biology. He authored over 40 papers which appeared in referred international journals, conferences, and workshops and participated as Speaker and Session Chair in various international workshops and conferences. He served as Program Committee Member of various software engineering conferences (such as IWPSE 2007, WCRE 2008, SCAM 2010, SCAM 2012, and SCAM2013). He is a Member of the IEEE Computer Society and of the Association for Computer Machinery (ACM).
