Vittorio Scarano has received in 1990 the Laurea in ``Scienze dell'Informazione'' (Computer Science) from the University of Salerno (Italy) and in 1995 he received the Dottorato di Ricerca (PhD) in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Naples (Italy).

In 1992, he has visited the University Eotvos Lorand in Budapest (Hungary). From 1992 to 1994, he has visited the Department of Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst (USA) working in the team with prof. Arnold Rosenberg in the field of parallel algorithms and architectures. He also was instructors at Mount Holyoke College (USA) in 1994.

From 1995 to 2001 he was an Assistant Professor at the ``Facoltà di Scienze MM. FF. e NN.'' (School of Mathematical, Physical and Chemical Sciences) of the Università di Salerno. Since 2001 he is an Associate Professor at the Facoltà di Scienze MM. FF. e NN (School of Mathematical, Physical and Natural Sciences) of the Università di Salerno. He is a member of the ``Dipartimento di Informatica ed Applicazioni'' (Computer Science and Applications department) of the Università di Salerno since 1995.

Since 1996, he (with Alberto Negro) funded and co-directs the ISISLab laboratory within the Department. ISISLab has been hosting, until now, the research activity of 10 PhD students, more than 20 collaborators (grants, fellowships) and provided support for more than 120 thesis (Bachelor and Master level) with computing facilities such that a 38-nodes IBM cluster, file and application servers, teaching lab, a stereoscopic screen, augmented reality devices etc.

He is co-author of more than 100 papers in internationally refereed journals and conferences of IEEE, ACM, etc. and he has been the PhD supervisor of 6 PhD students of Computer Science PhD program at the University of Salerno.
