Dr. Giuseppe Procaccianti


Giuseppe Procaccianti is a post-doc researcher in the Software and Services Research Group of the VU University Amsterdam. He obtained his B.Sc. in Computer Engineering from Università degli Studi di Palermo in 2008 and his M.Sc. in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Torino in 2011. He holds a double PhD degree from the VU and the Politecnico di Torino, where he was supervised by Prof. Maurizio Morisio.

His research interests focus on Energy-Efficient Software, i.e. analyzing the energy consumption of Software systems, through statistical and empirical methods, and establish a sound methodology for increasing the energy efficiency of ICT and Software solutions.

In the past, he did some research on Software for energy efficiency, i.e. Software solutions for optimizing energy consumption (for example, Smart Grid and Smart Building energy management systems, RES forecasting). He also developed a prototype for a Smart Grid energy management system leveraging Semantic Web technologies.

Giuseppe authored several articles on the topics of energy-efficient software and ICT sustainability. He served the Program Committee in every edition of the International Workshop on Green and Sustainable Software (GREENS), co-located for four years with the ICSE conference. He is also part of the Program Committee for the Software Engineering in Society (SEIS) track of the 2015 ICSE conference, and for the ICT4S 2014 conference.

In the current academic year, he designed a course in the new master track in Software Engineering and Green IT of the VU University Amsterdam. The course, called Green Lab, aims at providing students with the necessary knowledge and skills to perform empirical experimentation on the energy efficiency of software applications. Giuseppe will be responsible for most of the teaching and tutoring activities during the course.
