Vittorio Loreto, PhD, is a Full Professor of Physics of Complex Systems at Sapienza University in Rome and External Faculty of the Complexity Science Hub in Vienna. He is presently Director of the SONY Computer Science Laboratories – Rome, after having directed the SONY Computer Science Laboratories – Paris from 2017 to 2023, where he leads the teams of Sustainable Cities, Infosphere and Augmented Creativity. His scientific activity mainly focuses on the statistical physics of complex systems and its interdisciplinary applications. Over the years, he has been active in the fields of granular media, complexity and information theory, network theory, and social dynamics. He coordinated several projects at the international level, for instance, the EU project EveryAware, devoted to enhancing environmental awareness in urban contexts using social information technologies and the Templeton-funded KREYON project on “Unfolding the dynamics of creativity, novelties and innovation”. Vittorio Loreto published over 180 refereed international publications and chaired several workshops and conferences. He was the vice-chairman of STATPHYS 23, the 23rd International Conference on Statistical Physics of the International Union for Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP), held in Genova, Italy, from July 9 to 13, 2007.
