Carmelo Ardito is assistant professor at the Computer Science Department of the University of Bari Aldo Moro, where he teaches courses for the Computer Science curricula.
He studied at the University of Bari and he got the PhD in Computer Science in May 2008. His research interests are in Human-Computer Interaction, particularly Novel Interaction Techniques and Pervasive Systems.
He is co-author more than 80 papers published in journals, international conferences and collections. He has supervised many theses in Computer Science.
Since 2001 he has been involved in various research projects of the Department of Computer Science (De_VISU, VICE, Stressafish, CHAT, DIPIS, Learning for All, LOGIN, VINCENTE) sponsored by EU and Italian organizations.
He has been visiting researcher/professor at several international research laboratories, including: the Helsinki Institute for Information and Technology, working on interactive public displays (Finland, February-May 2007); the HCI group, working on games for visiting cultural heritage sites (University of Patras, Greece, June 2010); the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, working on pervasive games for museum visit (Trondheim, Norway, June 2012); School of Digital Technologies of Tallinn University, giving a course on "Technologies and Methodologies for End-User Development" within the PhD programme (Tallinn, Estonia, May 2014); DEI Interactive Systems Group, working on designing smart objects (University Carlos III, Leganes, June-July 2017); Cyprus Interaction Laboratory, giving a course on "End-User Development and Creativity in the Design of Interactive Systems with Arduino Technology" within the PhD programme (Cyprus University of Technology, Cyprus, May 2017).
In the frame of the Erasmus-IP EU programme, in 2013 and 2014 he has been responsible, for the University of Bari, of the management of the SURGEOM (SUbject-driven Role-Guided Externalization of Organizational Models) project. The final goal of SURGEOM was the organization of a two-week summer school, in which he also participated as teacher. Both the editions of the school were attended by 40 students coming from 6 European countries. The coordinator of the SURGEOM project was the Johannes Kepler University of Linz (Austria), which also hosted the event.
Carmelo Ardito has been member of the organization committee of several International Conferences: Demo co-chair at the ACM international conference on Interaction Design and Children (IDC) 2009; Workshop & Panel co-chair at the biannual conference of the Italian SIGCHI Chapter (CHItaly) 2013; Poster and Demo co-chair at the ACM international conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces (AVI) 2014; Full Paper co-chair at the International Symposium on End-User Development (IS-EUD) 2015; Short Paper co-chair at AVI 2016; Program co-chair at CHItaly 2017. He also organized the following workshops: "DEG: Involving End Users and Domain Experts in Design of Educational Games" in conjunction with IS-EUD 2011 and "SERVE: Smart Ecosystems cReation by Visual dEsign" in conjunction with AVI 2016. He is (has been) either member of the Program Committee or reviewer of numerous International Conference, including AVI, CHI, CSCW, INTERACT, TEI, UbiComp, VL/HCC. He has been meta-reviewer for NordiCHI (2012 and 2014 editions). He is also in the reviewer board of several international journals (ToCHI, IJHCS, IJHCI, IWC, JSS, JVLC, JSS, UAIS, MTAP).
Carmelo Ardito has been member of three COST Actions: 294 MAUSE "Towards the MAturation of Information Technology USability Evaluation", IC0904 TwinTide "ToWards INtegration of Trans-sectorial IT Design and Evaluation", IC1303 AAPELE “Algorithms, Architectures and Platforms for Enhanced Living Environments”.
Carmelo Ardito is one of the inventors of the patent n. 1401512 that concerns a multimedia framework and a method to support the visit of a site of interest, such as an archaeological or a natural park.
