A novel computing approach to model and simulate complex ecological systems is presented that can help unravel fragility of food webs in natural ecosystems. New insights are given by adopting modeling technologies that takes concurrent interactions (e.g., plant-pollinator; predator-prey; host-parasite) between species into account, using COSBI Language for stochastic dynamics. The modeling and simulation framework is presented by relying on real case-studies.



Corrado Priami obtained his Laurea and PhD degrees in Computer Science at the University of Pisa, visited as associate researcher at the laboratory LIX, École Politechnique, Paris (1995) and the École Normale Supérieure, Paris under an EC Marie Curie TMR grant (1996). He was a researcher and associate professor at the University of Verona (1997-2001). Currently, he is a professor of Computer Science at the University of Trento. The results of his PhD thesis on stochastic pi-calculus were the basis for the foundation of the Microsoft Research - University of Trento Centre for Computational and Systems Biology (COSBI), of which he is the President and CEO. His research covers computational methods for the modelling, analysis, and simulation of biological systems, programming languages, and formal computational theories. He published over 130 papers in international journals and conferences, given more than 50 invited talks and lectures at conferences and universities around the world. He founded the international conferences "Computational Methods in Systems Biology (CMSB)", which is continuing to grow, and "Converging Sciences", whose success has been described by many international journals. He was a member of ISTAG-FET (Information Society Technologies Advisory Group - Future and Emerging Technologies) of the European Commission.
