SHORT BIO

Ettore Stella, born in Bari on Feabruary 2, 1960  received the degree in Computer Science at University of Bari on 8 June 1984 cum laude, discussing the work “Segmentation of digital images using spatial processing techniques”. Since June 1984 until November 1987, collaborated with IESI-CNR on topics about Computer Vision and Robotics. Since November 1987 until July 1990 became researcher of National Space Plan (C.N.R.) at Centro di Geodesia Spaziale (Matera) and he worked on Space Robotic project. Since September 1990 is researcher at ISSIA-CNR (ex IESI) in Bari and he works on Computer Vision and Robotic topics. From December 2001 to April 2017 he was Senior Researcher (Primo Ricercatore) at ISSIA-CNR. Since 2004 he is associated professor in Computer Science at University of Basilicata (Matera), for TLC engineering faculty. Since April 2017 he is Research Director at ISSIA-CNR. From a professional point of view, Ettore Stella, has certified experience on: industrial automation, robotics, computer vision, high-performance computing, software design and development. He was supervisor of several degree thesis for University of Bari, Lecce and Basilicata. He is scientific chief of several research projects (industrial and governative). He is co-author of more than 100 papers on international journals and proceeding of conferences. He was co-author of book chapters and international patents.
