Michele Lanza is full professor at the Faculty of Informatics of USI, Lugano, which he co-founded in 2004 as a freshly baked assistant professor. Years have passed. He is now director of the Software Institute, which he founded, despite all odds, in 2017. He also served as Dean (not James) and as Vice-Rector at USI.
For his doctoral dissertation, completed in 2003 at the University of Bern, Switzerland, he received the European Ernst Denert award for best PhD thesis in software engineering. He also received the Credit Suisse Award for best teaching in 2007 and 2009. So far he received 3 most influential paper awards, and several best/distinguished paper awards.
Prof. Lanza leads the REVEAL research group since 2004. REVEALers work in the areas of software visualization, evolution, and analytics. Prof. Lanza co-authored more than enough peer-reviewed articles in journals and conferences, and the book "Object-Oriented Metrics in Practice".
Prof. Lanza is involved in a number of scientific communities, and has served on more than 100 program committees. He is president of CHOOSE (the Swiss Object-Oriented Software Engineering society). He was program co-chair of ICSM (IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance) in 2010, of MSR (International Conference on Mining Software Repositories) in 2007 and 2008, of VISSOFT (International Conference on Visualizing Software) in 2009, and of IWPSE (International Workshop on Principles of Software Evolution) in 2007.
Prof. Lanza has graduated 13 awesome PhD students so far. He is known to put a lot of effort into presentations, and has been keynote speaker 11 times so far.

Giving presentations is a cornerstone of the computing profession. It is rather bizarre to see how little most researchers know about how to design, create, and deliver professional presentations....
In this talk I will introduce the principles that govern software visualization, and show through a series of examples how they can be applied in practice. Furthermore I will reflect on how such...
