Invited Speakers

Assoc. Prof. Salvatore Brischetto
Politecnico di Torino, Italy

After earning his degree in Aerospace Engineering at the Politecnico di Torino in 2005, Brischetto received his PhD in Aerospace Engineering (Politecnico di Torino) and in Mechanics (Université Paris Ouest–Nanterre La Défense) in 2009. He won the excellence prize for PhD students in 2008 and the prize for young researchers in 2011 at the Politecnico di Torino. He worked as a Research Assistant at the Politecnico di Torino from 2006 to 2010, and as Assistant Professor from 2010 to 2018; currently he is Associate Professor since february 2018. His main research topics are: additive manufacturing, FFF 3D printing, smart composite structures, multifield problems, hygro-thermal stress analysis, CNTs, inflatable structures, shell 3D and 2D numerical and exact solutions and UAVs. He is the author of 158 articles, 81 of which have been published in international journals, and 1 patent. He serves as a reviewer for more than 100 international journals. He has been Guest Editor for Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Structures, for Technologies, and for Journal of Composites Science. He is a committee member for several international journals and 1 book series, and member of the "Shell Buckling People" web-site. Brischetto is Associate Editor of Curved and Layered Structures, and of Journal of Composites Science. He has been Teaching Assistant at the Politecnico di Torino for courses on computational aeroelasticity, structures for aerospace vehicles, nonlinear analysis of aerospace structures, principles of structural mechanics, aeronautic constructions, aeronautic structures, and numerical modelling and simulation techniques for aerospace structures. He was chair at the Politecnico di Torino for the courses “Aeronautic law and human factors and safety”, "Design and Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace Applications" and currently for "Aeronautic constructions", “Numerical modelling and simulation techniques for aerospace structures” and "3D shell models for composite structures". He is co-founder and co-chair of the group “ASTRA: Additive manufacturing for Systems and sTRuctures in Aerospace”, and also founder and chair of the project “PoliDrone, A multipurpose modular drone produced via 3D printing".


Prof. Didier Fasquelle
University of Littoral Côte d’Opale (ULCO), France

Prof. Dr FASQUELLE Didier is a full Professor in University of Littoral Côte d’Opale (ULCO), 62228 CALAIS, FRANCE. He is the head of MOFA group (Materials and Oxides for Functional Applications) in UDSMM lab (Unit of Dynamic and Structure of Molecular Materials). His main works are related to functional ceramics and thin films elaborated by sol-gel and sputtering, where samples are characterized in wide temperature and frequency ranges. His particular interests are therefore linked to dielectric, piezoelectric and pyroelectric properties, pyroelectric detectors, gas sensors, piezoelectric energy harvesting, SOFCs (solid oxide fuel cell). Since 2007, he has managed 10 national and international research projects. He has supervised 18 PhD students. Additionally he has published more than 200 papers in international journals and proceedings.
