Paolo Valente

University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy
Assistant Professor of CS
Modena - Italy
Paolo Valente is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy. Some of his activities focus on scheduling algorithms for transmission links, storage devices, and CPUs. As for transmission links, Paolo is one of the authors of the QFQ packet scheduler, which has been in the Linux kernel until 3.7, after that it has been replaced by QFQ+, a faster variant defined and implemented by Paolo himself. Paolo is also the author of the last version of the BFQ I/O scheduler, which seems to be on the right track to replace the current default I/O scheduler in Linux. Finally, Paolo has also defined and implemented other algorithms, part of which are now in FreeBSD, and has provided new theoretic results concerning multiprocessor scheduling. Paolo has given about thirty talks, as an invited speaker or to present his scientific papers.
