Vincenzo De Florio is a post-doctoral researcher with the MOSAIC (formerly, PATS) research group of the University of Antwerp and the iMinds research institute. There he is responsible for the MOSAIC’ task force on adaptive-and-dependable systems, namely software, devices, and services that are built so as to sustain an agreed-upon quality-of-service and quality-of-experience despite the occurrence of potentially significant and sudden changes or failures in their infrastructures and environments.
Vincenzo De Florio received in 2013 the prestigious IBM Faculty Award for innovative research. In 2014 he was invited speaker at the SERENE 2014 Workshop and at the iMinds SuperMinds event (a video of his presentation is available here.)

He was co-founder and co-organizer of the international workshop ADAMUS (on Adaptive and DependAble Mobile Ubiquitous Systems), for which he also served as co-chair in its third and fifth editions. He is co-inventor of a European/US patent. Vincenzo was co-proposer and local team leader of project ARFLEX (Adaptive Robots for FLEXible manufacturing systems, IST-NMP2-016680) and is co-proposer and local team leader of the iMinds project "Little Sister" (started in January 2013). Vincenzo is the Editor-in-chief of IJARAS, the International Journal of Adaptive, Resilient and Autonomic Systems.
