Vincenzo Eramo received his "Laurea" degree in Electronics Engineering in 1995 and his "Dottorato di Ricerca" (PhD degree) in Information and Communications Engineering in 2001, both from the University of Roma "La Sapienza". From June 1996 to December 1996 he was a researcher at the Scuola Superiore Reiss Romoli. In 1997, he joined the Fondazione Ugo Bordoni as a researcher in the Telecommunication Network Planning group. From November 2002 to October 2005 was an assistant professor and from November 2006 to Agust 2015 was an Aggregate Professor. Currently he is an Associate Professor in Department of Engineering of Information, Electronics and Telecommunications (University of Rome “La Sapienza”).
He collaborated with the ALCATEL LUCENT research center in Murray Hill (NY) from 01/01/2001 to 31/12/2001.
His research activities have been carried out in the framework of national and international projects. In particular Vincenzo Eramo was scientific coordinator for University of Roma “La Sapienza” in EURO (Experimental University Router Open), BORA-BORA (Building Open Router Architecture Based on Router Aggregation) and SFINGI (SoFtware-routers to Improve Next-Generation Internet), three national projects financed by MUR (Minister for University and Research) in 2002-2004, 2005-2006 e 2011-2013 respectively and focused on the performance evaluation of Software Router. Vincenzo Eramo was scientific coordinator for University of Roma “La Sapienza” of E-PhotoONe+ and BONE, two Networks of Excellence focusing on the study of Optical Networks and financed by European Commissions (FP6 and FP7) in 2006-2007 and 2008-2011 respectively.
He has been an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Computer since July 2011, IEEE Communications Letters since 2014 and Photonic Network Communications (Springer) since September 2013. He is the Editor in Chief of Open Journal of Optics and Photonics (Herbert Open Access Journal) since July 2014. He is an Editorial Board member of Dataset Papers in Optics (Hindawi) since November 2011, The Scientific World Journal-Computer Science (Hindawi) since October 2013.
He was a Guest Editor of the following Special Issues: “Open Source for Networking: Protocol Stack” (March 2014) organized on IEEE Network, “Innovative Techniques for Power Consumption Saving in Telecommunication Networks” (February 2014) organized on Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Actually he is a Guest Editor of the following Special Issues:, “Open Source for Networking: Tools and Applications” (September 2014) organized on IEEE Network e “Software Defined Elastic Optical Networks” (September 2014) organized on Photonic Network Communications.
He was Chairman in some international conferences (IEEE ICC 2003, EuroIMSA 2005, IEEE ICC 2011). He was member in the Technical Program Committees of the Conferences: ONDM 2008, HPSR 2008, WOC 2008-2009, IEEE GLOBECOM 2008-2014, ONDM 2010, IEEE ICC 2010-2014. He has been holding the “Telecommunication Network” course at University of Roma “La Sapienza” for more than ten years.
The research areas of Vincenzo Eramo are on the queuing theory, resource dimensioning techniques in telecommunication networks, all-optical networks and Internet switching architectures. His current research interests are focused on the definition and performance evaluation of routing techniques and technologies to reduce the power consumption in Telecommunication Networks.
