Prof. Simon Chiossi is a lecturer at Universidade Federal Fluminense, and previously held posts in Odense, Berlin, Torino, Marburg and Salvador. He was awarded a PhD in mathematics from the University of Genoa in 2003, and his scholarly publications focus on special geometry in dimensions 4 to 8.
Prof. Anna Fino is currently a full professor at the University of Torino, where she also received her Ph.D. in Mathematics. Her research work mainly focuses on differential geometry, complex geometry, Lie groups, more specifically, Hermitian geometry, G-structures and special holonomy, and geometric flows. She has supervised three doctoral theses and she is author of 72 papers.
Prof. Fabio Podestà studied mathematics at the University of Pisa and at the Scuola Normale Superiore, where he attended the Corso di Perfezionamento in Mathematics. He is currently a full professor at the University of Florence. His research activity in the field of differential geometry mainly concerns Lie group actions preserving geometric structures. He is author of more than 50 published papers.
Prof. Emilio Musso obtained his Ph.D. in mathematics at the Washington University in St. Louisin 1987. He taught at the Universities of Florence, L’Aquila and Rome in Italy. Currently he is a professor of mathematics at the Politecnico di Torino. He has published 60 papers and one book on several topics in differential geometry. His research interests are in geometrical variational problems, exterior differential systems and in the interrelations between geometry, physics and integrable systems.
