Federico Cerutti's research activity is focused mainly on nonmonotonic reasoning (in particular argumentation theory), and on decision support with uncertainty and trust. He studied suitable models of arguments and critiques for practical reasoning and decision support, and provided efficient algorithms for solving relevant problems in argumentation theory thus significantly improving the current state-of-the-art. Please find https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE4FIflP-ciusucDgSlwQzUXrGHP6_Uw9 series of lectures about argumentation theory.

He is leading the development team in Cardiff of the CISpaces.org project, open source at https://github.com/CISpaces/webservices

He led the development team that won the first place in the preferred semantics track and the second place in the semi-stable track of the International Competition on Computational Models of Argumentation 2017 http://argumentationcompetition.org/2017/results.html 

He leads the taks Learning and Reasoning in Complex Coalition Information Environments as part of the Distributed Analytics and Information Science International Technology Alliance, https://dais-ita.org/ .

Federico Cerutti was born in Gavardo, Brescia, Italy, in 1985. He received his B.Sc. ("Laurea di primo livello") in Information Engineering (Ingegneria dell'Informazione) and M.Sc.Eng. ("Laurea specialistica") in Computer Science and Engineering ("Ingegneria Informatica") cum laude from the University of Brescia in 2006 and 2008 respectively.

He received his Ph.D. in computer science in 2012 from the University of Brescia and currently he is a lecturer at Cardiff University. His research activity is focused mainly on nonmonotonic reasoning (in particular argumentation theory), and on decision support with uncertainty and trust. He studied suitable models of arguments and critiques for practical reasoning and decision support, and provided efficient algorithms for solving relevant problems in argumentation theory thus significantly improving the current state-of-the-art.

He has been one of the organisers of both COMMA 2010 and COMMA 2014.

He is co-author of more than 50 peer-reviewed papers, including five journal papers, and co-editor of two book.



I am an active researcher in artificial intelligence, in particular knowledge representation and nonmonotonic reasoning. I gave lectures and tutorials about it, at IJCAI 2015, the Second Summer School in Formal Argumentation ( https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE4FIflP-ciusucDgSlwQzUXrGHP6_Uw9 ), and IJCAI 2017.

I lead the taks Learning and Reasoning in Complex Coalition Information Environments as part of the Distributed Analytics and Information Science International Technology Alliance, https://dais-ita.org/ . As part of it, we will investigate how a coalition of humans and machines can support situational understanding---i.e. understanding events and situations as they unfold.

I co-authored more than 50 peer-reviewed papers, including five journal papers, and co-editor of two book. More complete list in my google scholar profile https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=v0mFZhoAAAAJ .

Slides of talks are available at https://www.slideshare.net/fcerutti/ and videos will be posted on https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjc5bea93YaIUxAplRFu8gQ .

I am interested in supervising PhD Students in the areas of:

  • artificial intelligence for situational understanding
  • argumentation theory
  • adversarial machine learning
  • natural language generation
