Scientific Activity

The scientific activity of Dr. Puliafito is focused on studying distributed systems. Topics developed in this context include parallel processing, problems connected with reliability and fault tolerance and advanced programming techniques based on agents technology. Specific applications regard network and quality of service management through software agents. He is currently investigating issues related with user mobility and security, in wireless and ad hoc networks. Emphasis is currently being devoted also in Grid computing and to the adoption of such paradigm to provide advanced multimedia services in a wireless environment. Specific interests involve reliability and performance analysis of parallel and distributed systems, adopting either standard and advanced modeling techniques. His research activity includes:

- Software Agents

- Reliability and fault tolerance

- Multimedia systems

- System modelling and Performance evaluation

- Multimedia

- GRID computing

- Wireless systems
