Fabio Paternò is Research Director and Head of the Laboratory on Human Interfaces in Information Systems at Istituto di Scienza e Tecnologie dell'Informazione, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche in Pisa, Italy.
He wrote one book on Model-Based Design and Evaluation of Interactive Applications, and has long been working on user interface modeling languages, and tools for design, development or evaluation of interactive systems. In the field of Task analysis he developed the ConcurTaskTrees notation for specifying task models, which has inspired the W3C document on Task Models. He then worked on the TERESA and MARIA XML languages for the logical description of multi-device user interfaces. He has also investigated novel solutions for End-User development in various contexts, and carried out research work for designing and supporting cross-device user interfaces able to dynamically distribute and migrate acress devices.
He has been the chair of the International Federation for Information Processing's WG 2.7/13.4 group on user interface engineering.
He has been a member of the Programme Committee of the main international HCI conferences, including Papers Co-Chair of the ACM CHI 2000 conference, IFIP INTERACT 2003 and IFIP INTERACT 2005, and chair of MobileHCI 2002, EICS 2011, Ambient Intelligence 2012, ACM EICS 2014, and Mobile HCI 2016
