Welcome to my personal homepage!

I am a Research Fellow (Ricercatore a Tempo Determinato di tipo A) at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Calabria, Rende (Italy). I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics and Computer Science from the same university. I have been a visiting Ph.D. student at CERMEP, CREATIS, Université Claude Bernand Lyon 1, Lyon (France).

You can find my (hopefully updated) curriculum vitæ here, and if you want to get in touch feel free to write me at francesco.cauteruccio [at] unical.it.


My research interests lie in different fields, mainly sequences comparison (with applications to bioinformatics and time series analysis), complex network analysis, artificial intelligence and Internet of Things.

My personally maintained list of publications is here.
You can also look at my Google Scholar profile or DBLP page.

I have collaborated with different research groups, such as the CREATIS at Université Claude Bernard 2 (Lyon, France), Technical University of Eindhoven (the Netherlands), the Polytechnic University of Marche (Italy) and the Centro Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR, Italy).

I have been a reviewer for different journals and conferences, such as Neurocomputing, Sensors, IJCAI 2020 and ECAI 2020, and I am member of the Reviewer board for the Information Journal. I have also been a PC member of IJCAI 2020 and ECAI 2020, and member of the Organizing Committee for AI*IA 2019 and JELIA 2019. An exhaustive list of my professional services is reported in my CV.


At University of Calabria, I'm the Instructor for the following courses:

  • Laboratorio di Informatica (CdLM Lingue e Letterature Moderne)
  • Laboratorio di competenze informatiche e telematiche (CdL Scienze della Comunicazione)

I'm also a Teaching Assistant for the following courses:

If you're brave enough, a list of thesis topics is available here!


I am currently involved (or I have been involved) in the followings projects:


SPINE (Structured Planning and Implementation of Neurological Explorations) is a virtual laboratory designed to accelerate scientific discovery in neuroimaging. It is a collaboration with the Center of Neurological Imaging (CNI) at Brigham and Women’s Hospital - Harvard Medical School.

Scholar H-Index Calculator

Scholar H-Index Calculator is a bibliometric and citation analysis tool which works as an addon for Google Chrome and Firefox. The Calculator enhances Google Scholar results pages by showing a number of bibliometric indicators computed using the data appearing on video as input. Once installed, the Calculator works transparently when querying Google Scholar: as soon as you make a query, result pages are enriched with a number of useful data (e.g., the h-index computed on the basis of displayed data), and new functions are available.
