Marco Attene is Full Researcher at CNR-IMATI-Ge, where he has been investigating new directions, paradigms, and algorithms for 3D geometric modeling since 1999. He holds an M.S. degree in computer science (1998), a Ph.D. degree (2004), and a research management Diploma (2009). He has been an invited Ph.D. student at the University of Otago (Otago, New Zealand, 2001) and invited researcher at INRIA (France, 2005). He contributed to the conception and implementation of the EU FP6 AIM@SHAPE NoE and is currently leading a consultancy research project on Computational Geometry for Material Design. He has been on the organizing board of SMI'01, SAMT'07, and the Stability on Watertight Models Track of the SHREC'08 Shape Retrieval Contest. He is Associate Editor of the international journals "Advances in Computer Science and Engineering" and "Computer Games Technology" and is on the program committee of international conferences. Attene's research is particularly focused on the algorithmic foundations to treat the geometry and topology of 3D simplicial meshes. While his earliest studies were focused on mesh reconstruction and surface remeshing, from 2006, Attene has been studying mesh segmentation algorithms with applications to semantic annotation.
