Giuseppe Desolda is research fellow at the Computer Science Department of the University of Bari "Aldo Moro". He is a member of the Interaction, Visualization, Usability & UX (IVU) Lab, coordinated by Prof. Maria Francesca Costabile.
He got the “Laurea” (BC) degree with full marks and honors in Computer Science at the University of Bari in July 2009, the “Laurea magistrale” (MS) degree with full marks and honors in Computer Science at the University of Bari in July 2011. In April 2106, he got the PhD in Computer Science at the University of Bari. Among the innovative contributions of his Ph.D., Giuseppe Desolda proposed models, visual interaction paradigms and a mashup platform to allow non-technical users to compose Web services, also by manipulating Linked Open Data. The mashup platform developed during the PhD program was awarded as best mashup tool at the Rapid Mashup Challenge organized at the 15th International Conference on Web Engineering 2015.

His research interests are in Human-Computer Interaction, specifically Interaction with Ubiquitous Systems, Usability and UX. In his research, Giuseppe Desolda is primarily investigating the human side of mashup methods in IoT context, as well as the use of Linked Open Data as new source of data in mashup platforms.

He is co-author of more than 30 papers published in journals, international conferences and collections. Giuseppe Desolda attended several National and International Conferences to present his published works, including AVI, IS-EUD, ICWE, IIMSS. He is (has been) either member of the scientific program committee or reviewer of International Conferences (CHI, INTERACT, CSCW, AVI, SEKE, NordiCHI, VL/HCC). He is also in the reviewer board of international journals (JVLC, MTAP, IJHCS, PLOS ONE).
He is Posters & Demo Chairs at AVI 2018, which will be held in Castiglione della Pescaia, Italy from 29th of May to 1st of June 2018.
He was publicity chair at AVI 2016, which will be held in Bari in June 2016. He was co-chair of the "SERVE: Smart Ecosystems cReation by Visual dEsign" workshop at the AVI 2016 conference.
Since 2013 he has been involved in various research projects of the Department of Computer Science (CHAT, LOGIN, VINCENTE) sponsored by EU and Italian organizations.

In July 2017 he was visiting researcher at the Brunel University London (UK), working with the Prof. Alessio Malizia in an on-going project on natural interaction paradigms to support non-technical users in programming the behaviour of smart objects.
During September-December 2014 he was visiting researcher at the University College of London (UCL) under the supervision of Dr. Hans-Christian Jetter, inside ICRI (Intel Collaborative Research Institute) Cities directed by Prof. Yvonne Rogers. During this period, he investigated the composition of data sources available on mobile devices by exploiting spatial-aware mechanisms.
In the frame of the Erasmus-IP EU programme, in 2014, together with Dr. Carmelo Ardito of the University of Bari, he was co-teacher of the “Information Construction by Service Composition” session and coordinator of work activities carried out by the students.

About teaching activities at the University of Bari, Giuseppe Desolda gave lectures in several courses like Computer Programming, Human-Computer Interaction I & II, Intelligent Systems, on various topics, including “Interaction with multi-touch displays”, “Language for Web Development: HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, PHP”, “User Interfaces for Information Retrieval”, “Semantic Web”. He supervised many students for their theses in Computer Science at the University of Bari.
