Federico Ciccozzi
Mälardalen University

Brief Bio
Federico Ciccozzi is a Docent in Computer Science at Mälardalen University (Västerås, Sweden), head of research education in computer science and in electronics, and leader of the automated software language and software engineering research group. His research focuses on several aspects of model-driven engineering and automated software engineering for the development of complex embedded safety-critical cyber-physical systems based on domain-specific modeling languages (DSMLs).

Among them, he specializes in: definition of DSMLs, automatic model manipulations through transformations, system properties pr
eservation, just to mention a few. Moreover, he conducts research in the area of multi-paradigm modeling, model versioning, (co)evolution, and synchronization, as well as the application of MDE and CBSE techniques to mobile multi-robot systems.

Federico has (co-)authored over 120 publications in international journals, international conferences, and workshop proceedings.
