Stefano Sergio Cavaglieri is the Chief Technology and Information Officer of the Swiss National Sound Archives in Lugano, Switzerland. His career started back in the late 70's in the audio engineering field. For a number of years, he touched all kind of audio productions, culminating his professional path with an impressive series of world class recordings and events. In the late 80's, in parallel to audio, Stefano broadens his interests to include computer science. Starting dealing with networking and systems management, he very soon gets involved in software design and all things digital storage. His expertise and analytical skills led him to be now recognized as one of the highest technical authorities in the multimedia archives community. In 2011 he was awarded the James A. Lindner prize for his contributions to research in the field of the technology of preservation of recorded sound. Stefano holds a degree both in electroacoustics and in computer science. He serves as an active member of IASA - TC (International Association of Sound and Audio Visual Archives – Technical Committee), ALA (American Library Association), and AES (Audio Engineering Society).
