Professor Djamal Zeghlache, Wireless Networks and Multimedia Services Department, Télécom SudParis, Institut Télécom, France
Djamal ZEGHLACHE graduated from SMU in Dallas, Texas in 1987 with a PhD. in Electrical Engineering and joined the same year Cleveland State University as an Assistant Professor. In 1992 he moved to Télécom SudParis of Institut Telecom and heads since 2004 the Wireless Networks and Multimedia Services Department. Professor Zeghlache acts as lead scientist for Institut Télécom in FP7 project 4WARD on Future Networks, ITEA 2 project CAM4Home on collaborative aggregated multimedia and STREP Mobesens on environmental monitoring using sensors and service chaining. He is involved in EU led research activities related to the eMobility Platform and the FIA. His research activities concern wireless networks and services with emphasis on resource sharing, control and management, on services and network virtualisation and on virtual networks establishment. Another key activity relates to the modelling, networking, storage and management of information objects and associated metadata for future networks.
Professor Mario Gerla, Computer Science Department, University of California at Los Angeles, USA
Dr. Mario Gerla, Professor, UCLA, Computer Science Dept. Dr. Gerla received his Engineering degree from the Politecnico di Milano, Italy, in 1966 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from UCLA in 1970 and 1973. He became IEEE Fellow in 2002. At UCLA, he was part of a small team that developed the early ARPANET protocols under the guidance of Prof. Leonard Kleinrock. He worked at Network Analysis Corporation, New York, from 1973 to 1976, transferring the ARPANET technology to several Government and Commercial Networks. He joined the Faculty of the Computer Science Department at UCLA in 1976, where he is now Professor. At UCLA he has designed and implemented some of the most popular and cited network protocols for ad hoc wireless networks including distributed clustering, multicast (ODMRP and CODECast) and transport (TCP Westwood) under DARPA and NSF grants. He has lead the $12M, 6 year ONR MINUTEMAN project, designing the next generation scalable airborne Internet for tactical and homeland defense scenarios. He is now leading two advanced wireless network projects under ARMY and IBM funding. In the commercial network scenario, with NSF and Industry sponsorship, he has led the development of vehicular communications for safe navigation, urban sensing and location awareness. A parallel research activity covers personal P2P communications including cooperative, networked medical monitoring (see www.cs.ucla.edu/NRL for recent publications).
