Home People Cenedese Biography


 Angelo Cenedese received the Laurea Degree in Electronic Engineering in 1999, from the University of Padova (UniPD); in 2000 he completed a post-graduate course on Plasma Physics and Engineering with the National Research Council and the University of Padova; and in 2004 he received the Ph.D. ("Dottorato di ricerca") in Energy Science from the same University. In 2004 he joined the Department of Information Engineering (DEI), UniPD, on a post-doctoral fellowship.
Since April 2006 he has been Assistant Professor ("Ricercatore" - Automatica – ING-INF/04), currently with the Department of Information Engineering, UniPD.
He is actively involved as member and co-founder in the HIT - Human Inspired Tecnologies Research Centre and he is in the directive board of the CRF - Center for Research on Nuclear Fusion, both of the University of Padova. He is also an Expert for the Fusion for Energy (F4E) European Agency, for research in the field of real-time reconstruction codes. 
He is also scientific responsible of NAVLAB (Autonomous Navigation Lab), the research laboratory of the Control and Automation Group, and co-responsible of MAG2IC (MultiAgent and Motion-&-Gait Intelligent Control), the interdisciplinary laboratory of the Department of Information Engineering.
He has held several visiting positions at international Universities and Research Centers: he was "visiting research scholar" with the UKAEA-JET laboratories in the Culham Research Centre, Abingdon, UK (2002 to 2004), "visiting scientist" at the JAERI Institute, Naka, Japan (2000) and at General Atomics, San Diego, CA (2004), under EURATOM agreements, "visiting scholar" at the Vision Lab of UCLA, Los Angeles, CA (2010), "visiting expert" at Fusion 4 Energy, Barcelona, ES (2014).
He was responsible for software tasks for the European Project EFDA-JET Enhancement on Magnetic Diagnostics (2002-2004), principal investigator in the project "SIMEA: Integrated/distributed System for Energetic and Environmental Monitoring" (2010-2012) funded by Regione Veneto, and in other projects on sensor and actor networks funded by government institutions and industries. He was also actively involved in:
  • the EU Project "ELT Design Study - Technology development towards a European Extremely Large Telescope", Specific Support Action FP6 (2005-09),
  • in several EU EFDA-JET Projects on control and diagnostics (2001-04), 
  • the EU Project "FeedNetBack - Feedback design for wireless networked systems", STREP ICT FP7 (2008-11), 
  • the "WISEWAI - Wireless Sensor networks for city-Wide Ambient Intelligence" project, funded by CaRiPaRo foundation (2007-10),
  • several National PRIN Projects among which "Smart Environments" (2006-08) and "New algorithms and applications of identification and adaptive control". 
He is currently involved in:
  • in the Progetto d'Ateneo "Electromagnetic modeling and mathematical optimization methods for large nuclear fusion devices", as scientific responsible and principal investigator
  • in the MIUR Smart Cities and Communities Project "Smart&safe Energy-aware Assisted Living", as main investigator
  • in the Industrial Project ''Padova Smart-City'', as scientific responsible and principal investigator
  • in the EU Network of Excellence "HYCON2 - Highly-complex and networked control systems", FP7, as participant
  • in the EU Fusion for Energy (F4E) project "Analysis of real-time magnetic reconstruction in ITER", as scientific responsible and principal investigator
His research collaborations include European Southern Observatory, Garching, Germany, ENEA-EURATOM, INFN, UCLA, and several industrial partners.

He was a co-organizer of the national control congress SIDRA 2008 (Vicenza), Publication and Publicity Chair for the 1st IFAC Workshop NECSYS 2009 (Venice), publication co-chair of the IFAC World Congress 2011 (Milan), and Special sessions co-chair, for the ICM2013 - IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics (Vicenza (Italy), 27 Febbraio - 1 Marzo 2013).
He regularly serves as a reviewer for international journals and conferences in the fields of system theory and automatic control.
His research interests are in the fields of modeling, control theory and its applications, active and computational vision, sensor and actor networks.

He has coauthored more than 90 papers on international journals, proceedings of international conferences, and several technical reports of international research institutes, and three patents have been granted, in the area of sensor/actor networks and videosurveillance.
