speakers of ICCNS 2017

Prof. Herwig Unger,
University of Hagen, Germany

Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Herwig Unger got his PhD with a work on Petri Net transformation in 1994 from the Technical University of Ilmenau and his habilitation with a work on large distributed systems from the University of Rostock in 2000. Since 2006, he is a full professor at the FernUniversit?t in Hagen and the head of the Chair of Communication Networks. His research interests are in self-organization, adaptive and learning systems, Internet algorithms and simulation systems.

Prof. Masahiro Fujita,
The University of Tokyo, Japan

Masahiro Fujita received his Ph.D. in Information Engineering from the University of Tokyo in 1985 on his work on model checking of hardware designs by using logic programming languages. In 1985, he joined Fujitsu as a researcher and started to work on hardware automatic synthesis as well as formal verification methods and tools, including enhancements of BDD/SATbased techniques. From 1993 to 2000, he was director at Fujitsu Laboratories of America and headed a hardware formal verification group developing a formal verifier for real-life designs having more than several million gates. The developed tool has been used in production internally at Fujitsu and externally as well. Since March 2000, he has been a professor at VLSI Design and Education Center of the University of Tokyo. He has done innovative work in the areas of hardware verification, synthesis, testing, and software verification-mostly targeting embedded software and web-based programs. He has been involved in a Japanese governmental research project for dependable system designs and has developed a formal verifier for C programs that could be used for both hardware and embedded software designs. The tool is now under evaluation jointly with industry under governmental support. He has authored and co-authored 10 books, and has more than 200 publications. He has been involved as program and steering committee member in many prestigious conferences on CAD, VLSI designs, software engineering, and more. His current research interests include synthesis and verification in SoC (System on Chip), hardware/software co-designs targeting embedded systems, digital/analog co-designs, and formal analysis, verification, and synthesis of web-based programs and embedded programs.

He is currently in steering committee of IEEE Transaction on Mobile computing (IEEE TMC), an editorial board member of IEEE communications letters (IEEE COMML), IEEE comsoc Journal of Communications and Networks (JCN) and International Journal On Advances in Networks and Services IJANS. He is also an Associate Editor of Wiley International Journal of Communication Systems (wiley IJCS). He has served as general chair of the international conference on wireless networks and mobile communications (WINCOM'15), program chair of IEEE New technologies mobility and security (NTMS'15). He has also served as TPC Co-Chair for IEEE Globecom and ICC conferences for Ad hoc and Sensor Networking, wireless network and wireless communication symposiums (ICC'17, GC'16, ICC'16, GC'14, ICC'14, ICC'12, GC'11, GC'10 ), since 2011 for International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC) and other conferences and workshops (VTC'14, ComComAp'13, ICNC'12, WCSP'12, Q2SWinet'12, P2MNET'11, WLN'10, WLN'09....). He is the chair of the IEEE Ad Hoc and sensor networks technical committee since January 2016, he was previously the vice chair and secretary for this committee. He has been appointed as IEEE comsoc distinguished lecturer since 2015 where he did several tours all around the world. He is member of IEEE technical services board since 2016
