MAJOR INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATIONS
2017 Visiting Scientist at Nokia Bell Labs, Cambridge, U.K.
Host: Daniele Quercia, Luca Maria Aiello
Project: Recommender systems
from 26 July 2017.
2004 Visiting Researcher at the Information Science and Technologies Laboratory,
Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), Palo Alto, CA, U.S.A
Host: Ed H. Chi, Peter Pirolli and Stuard Card
Project “Theory and design of adaptable human information interaction systems for
intelligence work”, part of the R&D program “Novel Intelligence from Massive Data
(NIMD)”
My background on focused crawling the web by means Agent and Multiagent
archtiectures inspired the development novel techniques for providing personalized
search results to a user according to profiles for users determined by identifying
keywords, concepts or other user and/or task specific descriptors within user history
documents. A proximal neighborhood based on the user’s history and adjustable
crawling parameters includes contents of documents linked to the user history and is
exploited in the ranking process. Some of the principal outcomes have been granted
in the patent US8606781 B2.
3 September 2004 to 17 December 2004.

Fabio Gasparetti Curriculum Vitae July 26, 2017
The principal achievements of the track record are summarized as follows:
Over 640 citations, H-index 12 (source: Google scholar)
Five publications on Top-ranked international journals (Q1 according to Scimago Journal rankings),
two of them are single-authored.
Track record with significant achievements in multiple domains, e.g., Intelligent Tutoring Systems,
Recommender Systems, User modeling and user-adapted interaction.
In [j4] my colleagues and I propose the first prototype of assistive writing technology based on the
constructivism theory and self-directed learning paradigms.
In [j5] my colleagues and I propose the first approach in the literature that combines user profiling,
context-awareness and social signals in a recommender system of points of interest.
I am one the authors of the book “The Adaptive Web Methods and Strategies of Web Personaliza-
tion” (ISBN 3540720782), a comprehensive collection of chapters that map out the most important
areas of the adaptive Web.
The survey [b4] received 227 citations and is considered one of the first contributions that covers
the personalization of Information Retrieval search tools on the Web.
The survey [b5] is the first attempt to systematically illustrate the benefits of the adaptivity to
environment and user needs alterations in focused crawling.
I am one of the contributors to the 2nd edition of Encyclopedia of Social Network Analysis and
Mining (ESNAM) with the entry [e1].
Several conference contributions are in well-established international conferences, such as, Intelligent
Tutoring Systems (ITS), Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI), User Modeling, Adaption and Personal-
ization (UMAP) and World Wide Web (WWW).
13 of 55 publications are without my Ph.D. supervisor.
In 2013 I started co-supervising Davide Feltoni Gurini in his PhD. Social network analysis, which
began one of principal research interests. The principal outcomes of this research are: (1) Com-
munity detection algorithms based on Sentiment and Opinion analysis, (2) Recommender systems
based on Signal-based representations of the user interests. They were recognized by the research
community as very original approaches to the respective problems.
My current research activity deal with an Adaptive focused crawler for social networks, able to
access and autonomously retrieve relevant information by means of the traditional Streaming API
provided by Twitter.
