Multidimensional data streams are playing a leading role in next-generation DSMS. This essentially because real-life data streams are inherently multidimensional, multi-level and multi-granular in nature, hence opening the door to a wide spectrum of applications ranging from environmental sensor networks to monitoring and tracking systems, and so forth. As a consequence, there is a need for innovative models and algorithms for representing and processing such streams. Moreover, supporting OLAP analysis and mining tasks is a “first-class” issue in the major context of knowledge discovery from streams, for which above-mentioned models and algorithms are baseline components. This issue becomes more problematic when uncertain and imprecise multidimensional data streams are considered. Inspired by these critical research challenges, in this talk we will present an overview of major research issues in this context and an innovative technique for supporting OLAP over uncertain multidimensional data streams.

He also got the habilitation as Associate Professor in Computer Science by the Aalborg University, Denmark, and the habilitation as Associate Professor in Computer Science by the University of Rome Tre, Italy. He is Adjunct Professor at the University of Catanzaro “Magna Graecia”, Italy, Adjunct Professor at the University of Messina, Italy, and Adjunct Professor at the University of Naples “Federico II”, Italy. Previously, he was Adjunct Professor at the University of Naples “Parthenope”, Italy. He holds 35 Visiting Professor positions worldwide (Europe, USA, Asia, Australia). He serves as Springer Fellow Editor. He serves as Elsevier Ambassador. He holds several roles in international scientific societies, steering committees for international conferences, and international panels, some of them having directional responsibility. He served as Panel Leader and Moderator in international conferences. He served as Invited Speaker in several international conferences worldwide (Europe, USA, Asia). He is member of scientific boards of several PhD programs worldwide (Europe, Asia, Australia). He serves as Editor for the Springer series “Communications in Computer and Information Science”. He covers a large number of roles in international journals, such as Editor-In-Chief, Associate Editor, Special Issue Editor (including JCSS, IS, KAIS, FGCS, DKE, INS, BigData Research). He edited more than 30 international books and conference proceedings. He is member of editorial advisory boards of several international books. He covers a large number of roles in international conferences, such as General Chair, Program Chair, Workshop Chair, Local Chair, Liaison Chair and Publicity Chair (including CSE, ODBASE, DaWaK, DOLAP, ICA3PP, ICEIS, APWeb, SSTDM, IDEAS, IDEAL). He served as Session Chair in a large number of international conferences (including EDBT, CIKM, DaWaK, DOLAP, ADBIS). He serves as Review Board Member in a large number of international journals (including TODS, TKDE, TKDD, TSC, TIST, TSMC, THMS, JCSS, IS, KAIS, FGCS, DKE, INS). He serves as Review Board Member in a large number of international books. He serves as Program Committee Member in a very large number of international conferences (including VLDB, ICDE, EDBT, CIKM, IJCAI, KDD, ICDM, PKDD, SDM). His current research interests include multidimensional data modeling and querying, data stream modeling and querying, data warehousing and OLAP, OLAM, XML data management, Web information systems modeling and engineering, knowledge representation and management models and techniques, Grid and P2P computing, privacy and security of very large databases and OLAP data cubes, models and algorithms for managing uncertain and imprecise information and knowledge, models and algorithms for managing complex data on the Web, models and algorithms for high-performance distributed computing and architectures. He is author or co-author of more than 330 papers in international conferences (including EDBT, CIKM, SSDBM, MDM, DaWaK, DOLAP), international journals (including JCSS, IS, KAIS, DKE, INS) and international books (mostly edited by Springer). He is also involved in several national and international research projects, where he also covers responsibility roles.
