Giuseppe Sanfilippo is Assistant Professor (Associate Professor, since December 2017) of Probability at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Palermo (Italy). He earned his doctorate (PhD) in applied mathematics and computer science in 2004 at the University of Naples "Federico II" (Italy). He earned his degree in Mathematics in 1999 at University of Catania (Italy). He was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Rome "La Sapienza" in 2004. He was a Visiting Researcher at the Institute de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse (France) in 2001, at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of University of Canterbury, Christchurch (NZ) in 2002-2003 and at Fachbereich Psychologie, Universitat Salzburg (Austria) in 2010.

Giuseppe Sanfilippo is author of: 14 articles in peer-reviewed international journals (INFORM SCIENCES, INT J APPROX REASON, STAT SCI, AM STAT, STUDIA LOGICA, ANN MATH ARTIF INTEL, JANCL, INT J UNCERTAIN FUZZ, SOFT COMPUT, J APPL LOGIC); 23 scientific peer reviewed papers published in Book chapters (LNCS, AISC, AIP, CCIS) or in international conferences ( proceedings of ISIPTA, WUPES, IPMU, UAI, ECSQARU, SMPS, IEA/AIE ...); about ten abstracts presented at international and national conferences (ERCIM, EURO, ISI, PROGIC, Square of Opposition,...) ; 1 research paper in an national journal of education. In Scopus he is present with 26 documents, about 250 citations and he has h-index 10 .

He is coordinator of a trilateral research conferences at Villa Vigoni (2015-2017). He was responsible of a national Indam-Gnampa project (2016), participant of some research projects of national interest (PRIN) and collaborator in an EUROCORES project. He was in the program committee of several international conferences: Information Processing and Management of Uncertainty (IPMU) 2012, Soft Methods in Probability and Statistics (SMPS 2016), International Conference on Industrial, Engineering & Other Applications of Applied Intelligent ( IEA/ AIE 2017), Logical Foundations for Uncertainty and Machine Learning (LFU 2017). He was also reviewer of international journals, some of them are: International Journal of Uncertainty, Fuzziness and Knowledge-Based Systems (World Scientific), Knowledge-Based-Systern (Elsevier), International Journal of Approximate Reasoning (Elsevier), Studia Logica (Springer), Minds and Machines (Springer). He was in the scientific board member in PhD program in Statistics and in PhD program in Economics. He is actually in the scientific board member in PhD program in Mathematics and Computational Science at the University of Catania (Italy).

His research interest focus on subjective probability, probabilistic reasoning under coherence, coherent conditional probability and conditional prevision, imprecise probabilities, algorithms for coherence checking, non monotonic reasoning, proper scoring rules, sequential forecasting, extropy as a dual of entropy, logical operations among conditional events, iterated conditional events, probabilistic square and hexagon of opposition, probabilistic validity of some inference rules and syllogisms, frequency mimicking.
