Professor Antonio Laganà

Antonio Laganà is Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Perugia. After his (Theoretical and Computational) Chemistry degree he has been postdoc at the University of Manchester (1977-78) and Visiting Researcher at several Laboratories and Universities (ECSEC, Caltech, Cambridge, Los Alamos, Salamanca, Bristol, CERN, EPCC, Vitoria, FORTH, Barcelona, CNUCE). He has been Director of two NATO workshops and has organized several International Conferences and Schools (Molec, Molecular Beams, Gas Kinetics, Stereodynamics, Computational Chemistry, Parallel computing, International Conference on Computational Science and its Applications)

His research works has developed in the fields of electronic structure, molecular scattering, dynamics and kinetics, parallel and distributed scientific algorithms, high performance and high throughput computations with particular emphasis to distributed research and education community environments and tools. He has published more than 400 papers and authored 10 books.
