Antonio Visioli was born in Parma , Italy, on August 21, 1970. He received the Laurea degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Parma in 1995, discussing a Master Thesis about surfaces recognition through learning of ultrasonic echoes for mobile robot navigation. From September 1994 to February 1995 he was an ERASMUS student at the Electrical and Electronic Department of the Loughborough University of Technology (now Loughborough University), UK. From September 1995 to November 2012 he was with the Department of Information Engineering (formerly, Department of Electronics for Automation) of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Brescia . In 1999 he received the Ph.D. degree in Applied Mechanics from the University of Brescia, discussing a Ph.D. thesis entitled "Control strategies for industrial robot manipulators".
Currently he holds a full professor position in Control Systems at the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering of the University of Brescia. He is a senior member of IEEE, the chair of the IFAC Technical Committee on Education, a member of the Technical Committee on Education of the IEEE Control Systems Society, the secretary of the subcommittee on Industrial Automated Systems and Control of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society Technical Committee on Factory Automation.
He served as general chair of the IFAC Conference on Advances in PID Control (Brescia, 2012) and of the IFAC Workshop on Internet Based Control Education (Brescia, 2015). He has served as IPC chair of the Second, Third and Fourth Edition of the International Conference on Event Based Control, Communication and Signal Processing (Krakow 2016, Funchal 2017 and Perpignan 2018). He has been also the IPC chair of the IFAC Conference on Advances in PID Control (Gent, 2018) and the IPC co-chair of the IFAC Symposium on Advances in Control Education (Philadelphia, 2019). He is the IPC chair of the IFAC Symposium on Advances in Control Education (Hamburg, 2022) and of the IEEE International Conference on Emerging Technologies and Factory Automation (Stuttgart, 2022). He has also served as IPC member of many international conferences.
He is Specialty Chief Editor of the Control and Automation Systems section of Frontiers in Control Engineering, associate editor of IET – Journal of Engineering and associate editor of Proceedings of the IMechE Part I: Journal of Systems & Control Engineering.
He has participated to many national and international research projects. In particular, he was the UNIBS coordinator in the I-MECH project "Intelligent Motion Control Platform for Smart Mechatronic Systems", funded by the ECSEL JU.
His research interests include industrial controllers, mechatronics, dynamic inversion based control, fractional control, anesthesia control.
