Enhancing your computer science experience with passion and dedication
The ACM Rome Tor Vergata is an ACM Student Chapter. Our mission is to lead and promote sinergies between academia and industry
in the advancement of computer science.
Digital Women Conference 2017
The past 19 october our university hosted the Digital Women Conference. It was a occasion to discuss about female presence in STEM, especially computer science and computer engineering. The initiative has been mainly promoted by Comitato Unico di Garanzia di Ateneo, chaired by Elisabetta Strickland, a professor of algebra at the Department of Mathematics, with the collaboration of Giuseppe Italiano, professor of Computer Engineering at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. The main guest was professor Joan Feigenbaum, the Grace Murray Hopper Professor of Computer Science at Yale University and also a fellow of ACM.
I was personally invited by Giuseppe Italiano to give my testimony, as a student, about my experience on gender discrimination.Read more
New Frontiers in Cloud Computing for Big Data and IoT Applications
Computing is being transformed to a model consisting of services that are commoditised and delivered in a manner similar to utilities such as water, electricity, gas, and telephony. Several computing paradigms have promised to deliver this utility computing vision. Cloud computing has emerged as one of the buzzwords in the IT industry and turned the vision of “computing utilities” into a reality. Clouds deliver infrastructure, platform, and software (application) as services, which are made available as subscription-based services in a pay-as-you-go model to consumers. Cloud application platforms need to offer (1) APIs and tools for rapid creation of elastic applications and (2) a runtime system for deployment of applications on geographically distributed computing infrastructure in a seamless manner.
The Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm enables seamless integration of cyber-and-physical worlds and opening up opportunities for creating new class of applications for domains such as smart cities. The emerging Fog computing is extending Cloud computing paradigm to edge resources for latency sensitive IoT applications.

Computer science is an astonishing world that goes faster and faster every day. We study not to be spectators nor to chase it. We study because we dream of driving it.
