Profile Summary

Gianluca Chiozzi works at the European Organisation for Astronomical Research in the Southern Hemisphere in Munich (ESO). He has been heavily involved in the design and implementation of the Common Software and Telescope Control Software for all major ESO projects (VLT, ALMA and now the E-ELT) since 1994. He is now working primarily on the control software architecture for the E-ELT project, back to "real work" after 5 years of line management as head of the Control and Instrumentation Software Department. Before ESO he worked at the IBM Technical and Scientific Research Center in Milan.

Course Instructor
SC644: An Introduction To Scalable Frameworks For Observatory Software Infrastructure
This course provides an analysis of the advantages and requirements for an integrated software infrastructure for observatories and similar scientific facilities. It provides a common framework for application software that can range from control to data analysis applications. Currently available and emerging technologies are evaluated and compared. The course concentrates on the architecture of an application framework necessary for such an infrastructure and on the impact on scalability, maintainability and reuse. Many practical examples will be given based on the ALMA Common Software, a CORBA-based, open source solution used by ALMA and other projects.
