Andrea Marrella is a research fellow at Sapienza Università di Roma, Italy, Dipartimento di Ingegneria Informatica, Automatica e Gestionale Antonio Ruberti (DIAG - Department of Computer, Control and Management Sciences and Engineering), since 2013. He got a PhD in Engineering in Computer Science (Dottorato di Ricerca in Ingegneria Informatica) from Sapienza Università di Roma in October 2013. In 2018, he obtained the National Scientific Habilitation as Associate Professor for sectors 09/H1 (Engineering in Computer Science) and 01/B1 (Computer Science).

The research activity of Andrea Marrella concerns theoretical, methodological, and practical aspects in different areas of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence, including Business Process Management, Modelling, Adaptation, Mining and Resilience, Knowledge Representation, Reasoning about Action, Automated Planning, Human-Computer Interaction. Such topics are challenged in the application domains of eGovernment, smart manufacturing, healthcare and emergency management.

Andrea Marrella was invited to present the results of his research at various institutions worldwide, including University of Toronto (Canada) and York University (Canada) in 2012, Ryerson University (Canada) in 2013, University of Vienna (Austria) and University of Ulm (Germany) in 2014, and University of Tartu (Estonia) in 2016.

Andrea Marrella regularly publishes the results of his research in top-level international journals and conferences. He has co-authored over 60 scientific papers on the above research topics, including 12 journal articles (such as ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology, Expert Systems with Applications, Journal on Data Semantics, IEEE Internet Computing), 2 authored book chapters, and several peer-reviewed conference and workshop papers. According to Google Scholar, his h-index is 17 and his i10-index is 22 (cf.

Since 2010, Andrea Marrella has developed a research program aimed at investigating how to integrate the solid theoretical foundations provided by Artificial Intelligent techniques with the practical needs required by Business Process Management solutions. Thanks to the recognized results of his research, in 2017 he was invited to hold the keynote talk in the 1st International Workshop on BP Innovation with AI (BPAI’17) organized within the BPM’17 conference, where he presented (as a single author) his research on “Automated Planning for Business Process Management”. The findings of this research have been also published as a journal article at Journal on Data Semantics (Springer).

In addition, in 2017 he received the Best Paper Award at the prestigious CAiSE 2017 conference (29th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering) for his paper on “Multi-party Business Process Resilience By-Design: A Data-centric Perspective”.

From January 2012 to June 2012, Andrea Marrella has been a visiting Researcher at York University in Toronto, Ontario (Canada), Department of Computer Science and Engineering, where he collaborated with Prof. Yves Lespérance. From June 2013 to August 2013, he has been a visiting researcher at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario (Canada), Department of Computer Science, where he collaborated with Prof. Mikhail Soutchanski. In October and November 2016, he has been a visiting researcher at University of Tartu in Estonia, where he collaborated with Prof. Fabrizio Maria Maggi.

Andrea Marrella is the principal investigator of the research project entitled METRICS (“Mining ExTended leaRnability of InteraCtive Systems”) and DAKIP (“Data-aware Adaptation of Knowledge-intensive Processes in Cyber-Physical Domains through Action-based Languages”), which have been funded by Sapienza Università di Roma in 2016 and 2018. Moreover, he is/has been actively involved in several research projects, including WORKPAD (FP6 European Project, ended in 2009) and the Italian projects MAIS, TESTMED, SUPER, FIGO (as Unit Leader), NEPTIS (as OR Leader), IT-SHIRTS (as WP Leader), FILIERASICURA and ACI-I.

Since 2017, Andrea Marrella is the Information Director of the ACM Journal on Data Quality (JDIQ) and is member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management (IJISCRAM). Moreover, he serves/has served in the Program Committee of the 16th and 17th Int. Conference on Business Process Management (BPM 2018 and 2019), 14th Int. Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces (AVI 2018), 2017 and 2018 Int. Conference on Software and System Processes (ICSSP 2017 and 2018), 12th, 13th, 14th Int. Conference on Web Information Systems and Technologies (WEBIST 2016, 2017 2018), 2014 Symposium on Computational Intelligence and Data Mining (CIDM 2014) and of several international workshops. He also serves/has served regularly as a reviewer for top class journals, such as ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction (TOCHI), Information Systems, Data & Knowledge Engineering (DKE), Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (JAIR), etc.

As far as organization and chairship of conferences and workshops, Andrea Marrella is currently acting as Organization Chair of the 31st Int. Conf. on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE 2019).
