Davide Di Ruscio is Associate Professor at the Department of Information Engineering Computer Science and Mathematics of the University of L’Aquila. His main research interests are related to several aspects of Software Engineering, Open Source Software, and Model Driven Engineering (MDE) including domain-specific modelling languages, model transformation, model differencing, model evolution, and coupled evolution. He has published more than 120 papers in various journals, conferences and workshops on such topics. He has been co-guest editor of a number of special issues.
He has been in the PC and involved in the organization of several workshops and conferences, and reviewer of many journals like IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, Science of Computer Programming, Software and Systems Modeling, and Journal of Systems and Software. He is member of the steering committee of the International Conference on Model Transformation (ICMT), of the Software Language Engineering (SLE) conference, of the Seminar Series on Advanced Techniques & Tools for Software Evolution (SATTOSE), and of the Workshop on Modelling in Software Engineering at ICSE (MiSE).
Since 2006 he has been working on different European and Italian research projects by contributing the application of MDE concepts and tools in several application domains (e.g., service-based software systems, autonomous systems, open source software systems, and hybrid polystore systems).
