Complex Systems & Security Lab

University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome, Italy


We are involved in several European and Italian Projects on critical infrastructure protection, gesture recognition and human machine interaction, networked and distributed control, indoor localization, modeling complex systems with incomplete or ambiguous information.
In particular, we are currently working on these fields:


Interdependency Models for Critical Infrastructures

based on the experience of technicians and stakeholders.


Fault detection and Reaction strategies

to cyber and stealth attacks.


Indoor localization of ad-hoc sensor networks

and of first responders during emergency situations.


The University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome (UCBM) is one of the top-ranking private Italian Universities.

The COmplex systems & SEcuRITY (COSERITY) Lab, within the Engineering Faculty, conducts both theoretical and applied research in a wide range of domains, such as automation technologies, industrial automation, control and robotics, biomedical engineering, computer science and, primarily, Critical Infrastructures.

The Complex Systems & Security Lab is one of the leadingĀ  Italian research institutions on Homeland Security and Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP). In this field, research activities are focused on the development of innovative and strong multi-disciplinary methodologies, tools and technologies to support the study of large infrastructures in terms of their behavior, threats, vulnerabilities and management.

On the basis of the large experiences acquired over more than ten years of research in the field of critical infrastructure protection and security, the University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome created in 2009, a first-of-its-kind experience in Italy and Europe, a Post Graduate Program (PGP) in Homeland Security, aimed at training security experts able to cope with the actual socio-technological threats of modern infrastructures.
