Marco Aiello is professor of Computer Science and Head of the Service Computing Department at the University of Stuttgart, Germany and member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts. He is also honorary professor of Distributed Systems at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands, where he was a faculty member from 2006 till 2018. He holds a PhD in Logic from the University of Amsterdam, the Habilitation in Applied Informatics from TU Wien, and a master degree in Engineering from La Sapienza University of Rome. His research interests are in Service Computing, Smart Energy Systems, and Spatial Reasoning. He has authored over 160 peer reviewed articles and several books, including two bestsellers, and the most recent The Web Was Done by Amateurs published by Springer.


We integrate cross-sectorial expertise on power distribution, control systems, building automation, computer science, and social and behavioral science to propose an interdisciplinary framework that uses innovative distributed control algorithms and an ICT platform coupled with intelligent automated techniques to improve demand-supply matching in a financially and psychologically way that is attractive and acceptable to end-users.


The project focuses on the application of state-of-the-art ICT tools and techniques to improve the environmental footprint of energy-intensive facilities and deliver Smarter and Greener Data-Centers, through ‘self-help’.
