Universita Degli Studi di Napoli Federico II

The University of Naples Federico II was established in 1224 through an Imperial Charter of Frederick the II Hohenstaufen. Nowadays the teaching offer covers courses in all academic disciplines and counts some 150 graduate level degrees. The research activities, carried on by more than three thousand people in the academic staff, are spread on all the areas and there are many excellences internationally recognized. Among the many field the statistical one is well founded with several research groups; the academic roots of the members of the Statistics, Technology, Analysis of Data (STAD) group, involved into the present call, are grounded into the Computational Statistics and Applications PhD school. Currently their teaching activities are at the crossroad between economics and engineering curricula and some research interests are directed trough this very peculiar interface. The experience of the group ranges from the field of official statistics to the most advanced methods for knowledge discovery in very large data sources. STAD people are involved in field research about design and deployment of statistical monitoring and assessment analysis, the development of methodologies and tools aiming at decision support, machine learning and data warehousing for ICT.
