Fausto Giunchiglia done his Laurea in Electronic Engineering (specialization in Computer Engineering), University of Genoa in 1981 & 1983 . He received his Doctorate in Computer Engineering, University of Genoa, Faculty of Engineering in 1987.Currently he is a Full Professor and Head of the Department of Information and Communication Technology, Faculty of Science, University of Trento, Italy. His research interests include Artificial Intelligence, Formal Methods, Software Engineering (to some extent), automated reasoning, theorem proving, model checking, planning, contexts and contextual reasoning (and logics for modeling it), abstract reasoning, meta-theoretic reasoning, reasoning about propositional attitudes (belief mainly), integration of reasoning systems, agents and agent oriented software engineering, Peer-to- Peer data bases, knowledge management, contextual ontologies, "diversity in knowledge management". He has also contributed to the development of various software systems. In particular, He led and developed in part the implementation of the GETFOL system, a complete reimplementation of Richard Weyhrauch FOL system. He has authored and coauthored more than 260 technical papers. He was awarded most influential paper in 7 years at the Extended Semantic Web conference.

Communication is the most common but an intricate activity that we perform every day. Sender sends message, discussions, greetings, gestures, emotics and texts through numerous channels, (e.g. e-mail, messengers, social networks and so on) intending the receiver to understand. The means of personal or group communication has been radically changed over last decade. Geographical, ethnicity, nationality, race, religion are no more hindrance for the sake of social communication. Forms of communication, event, gathering, greetings almost have altered into virtual society. But this hi-tech society has still yet enough room to strengthen its semantic nature. We have made an endeavor to conglomerate the socio-psycho-technical aspect of so-called social networks which could be more realistic, logically inferable and convincible towards people to claim its analogousness with real society. Our devised SN is able to eliminate some weird problems that we face in current SNs, imperfect relationship assignment policies and possibility of data interference among desired and intruder groups.
