Bio: Giulia Boato was born in Rovereto (Trento) in 1979. In 2002 she received the M.Sc. degree in Mathematics at the Faculty of Science of the University of Trento. In 2005 she obtained the Ph.D. in Information and Communication Technologies, working in the Multimedial Signal Processing and Understanding Lab on innovative methodologies for secure multimedia communications using Birkhoff polynomial interpolation. Currently, she is Assistant Professor at the Department of Information Engineerig and Computer Science (DISI) of the University of Trento (Italy) and professor of the courses Digital signal processing and Data hiding within the M.Sc. Degree in Telecommunications Engineering. From 2008 to 2011 she has been coordinating the Multimedial Signal Processing and Understanding Lab. She was in the Project staff of some past projects (DIPLODOC, AIDER, GRID.IT, PERSEO) and on-going projects (EU projects: SAFESPOT, FP7 FET-IP LIVINGKNOWLEDGE, FP7 IP GLOCAL, FP7 CA ETERNALS). She is co-chair of the International Workshop Living Web: making diversity a true asset (Washington DC, October 2009) within the International Semantic Web Conference 2009 and of the workshop on Event-based Media Integration and Processing co-located with ACM Multimedia conference 2013. She is in the Technical Program Committee of the International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP) and of the International Conference on Communications (ICC); and Local Arrangements Chair of the International Symposium on Modeling and Optimization in Mobile, Ad Hoc, and Wireless Networks 2005 and of the International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval 2011. She is reviewer for many international journals, e.g., IEEE Transaction on Information Forensics and Security, IEEE Transaction on Signal Porcessing, IEEE Transaction on Multimedia, IEEE Transaction on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology. In 2006 she was visiting researcher at the Signal Theory and Communications Department of the University of Vigo (Spain). Since 2006 she has been collaborating with the Signal Processing Department of the Tampere University of Technology (Finland), in particular with prof. Karen Egiazarian. Since 2009 she has been working with prof. Hany Farid of the Dartmouth College (USA) on digital image and video forensics techniques, co-advising a Ph.D. thesis. In 2012 she was visiting researcher at the Multimedia Information Retrieval Lab of the University of Delft (the Netherlands). Her research interests are focused on image and signal processing, with particular attention to multimedia data protection, data hiding and image forensics, but also intelligent multidmensional data management and analysis. On these topics she is active in the european prjects coordinated by DISI: in LIVINGKNOWLEDGE for the development of image forensics methods supporting opinion mining on the web, in GLOCAL for the desing of multimedia annotation and retrieval systems based on the concept of event.
