Gordion is Gregorio D'Agostino's little hub
My website is a permanent work in progress. Above please find a summer and a winter snapshot of me. Some of my activities are related to projects that have their own webpage.

Thanks to the contribution of several outstanding groups, in collaboration with Antonio Scala, I have finally edited a book providing a general overview of
"Networks of Networks: The Last Frontier of Complexity"
I am also interested in the analysis of scientific literature and the internal rules of the scientifc community. Aimed at improving the quality of published material and providing a more trasparent inspection of actual contributions to science evolution, I have launched (June 2014) a provocation for a Novel Citation Method.
Recently (June 2015) I have risen a new provocation aimed at introducing a Second Money for Europe
This year (2016) I will start teaching again and I will give a series of lectures on "Information Security" at University of TorVergata (Roma II).
Please follow the appropriate link downstairs if you are interested in a specific activity.
I do define myself a theoretical physicist. I started my research experience in the Field Theory (strings, supersymmetric models). Then I moved to Material Science (Atomistic, mesoscopic and Multiscale Modeling and Simulation) and eventually since last eight years I am working on Critical Infrastructure Protection and Coplexity Science. I have been almost always working at ENEA (in different departments) while collaborating with some external institutions (PSI, Univ. Roma Torvergata, INFN, CNR, KSU) and I am currently visitor scientisti at London Institute of Mathematical Science LIMS.
Aimed at combining activities on CIP and complexity, I am devoting a lot of my efforts to Network of Networks (or Systems of Systems) , that is the research aimed at employing methodologies and techniques from the theoretical Physics in the Critical Infrastructure Protection field. In this respect I have co-chaired a series of conferences named "Netonets" (2011-1016) and "Coinets" (2012-2014). Recently I have also presented some results at international conferences (particularly ECCS and Critis) and occasionaly as keynote:
Keynote speaker at Fifth Interop-Vlab.It Workshop 2012
Keynote Speaker at NATO Conference "Complex Systems Physics" 2013
I am also participating to the European Project CI2C aimed to inspect possible applications of Cloud services to Critical Infrastructures and to the Network of excellence CIPRNETPlease find my recent publications in these fields:

During years 2010-2012 I had the priviledge to lead an European project on Critical Infrastructure Protection named MOTIAThe Project MOTIA website
I have been Visitor scientist at Paul Sherrer Institute in 1995 and Research visitor at Boston University from July 2012 to May 2015.
I have also been President (up to June 2015) and Councillor of the AIIC (the Italian National Association of Experts in Critical Infrastructures).
I am employed as a staff scientist (senior) at ENEA since 1989. Up to 2015 I belonged to the technical unit for Energy & Enviroment Modelling; before 2010 I was in the CaMo (Calculus and Modelling) unit where "progetto Reti" was developed. Before 2008 I was in the Material Division and Material Department (different names: nanomaterials, advancede materials etc). Before 1990 I was in the Nuclear department (Dynamics and Security of Reacters Unit).
