My name is Salvatore Loreto and I am originally from Italy.

I spent my childhood among Salerno, Napoli, Florence and Nocera Inferiore.

I went to high school (Liceo Classico G.B. Vico) in Nocera Inferiore (a town in Italy closed to Salerno, the Amalfi coast and the metropolitan city of Napoli) and obtained a Master Degree in Computer Science Engineering from the Napoli University "Federico II".

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Networking in the fall 2006 from the Napoli University "Federico II".

I have been working for several years in Helsinki as Master scientist at NomadicLab "MultiMedia Technology" branch, which is part of Ericsson Research in Finland. There I was involved both in standardization, research projects and strategy related to the Internet in general and in particular VoIP, Media & Web Communication and Internet of Things (IoT).


In IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) I have contributed to several RFC and I have also served as co-chair of the HyBi(BiDirectional or Server-Initiated HTTP: i.e. WebSocket Protocol), SoC (Sip Overload Control) and Apps Area Working Groups.
