o    Charlie Jianzhong Zhang[Sí96, Mí02, SMí09]: Dr. Charlie (Jianzhong) Zhang is a standards Director with the Samsung Dallas Technology Lab, where he leads the 3GPP LTE/LTE-A standard project as well as a task force focusing on new biomedical devices and applications. He is currently serving as the Vice Chairman (first elected Aug 09, re-elected Aug 11) of 3GPP RAN1, the physical layer working group for radio access network. Before he joined Samsung, he was with Motorola from 2006 to 2007 where he worked on the 3GPP HSPA standardization; and he was with Nokia Research Center from 2001 to 2006 where he worked on IEEE 802.16e (WiMAX) standard and EDGE/CDMA/HSPA receiver algorithms. Dr Zhang received his Ph. D. degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Wisconsin at Madison, and is a senior member of IEEE. He is currently serving as the Standards subcommittee chair of the Industry DSP applications committee of the IEEE signal processing society.

 

o    Halim Yanikomeroglu: Dr. Yanikomeroglu is a Professor at the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada. Dr. Yanikomerogluís research interests cover many aspects of the physical, medium access, and networking layers of wireless communications with a special emphasis on cellular networks. In recent years, Dr. Yanikomerogluís research has been funded by Huawei (Canada and China), Research In Motion (Canada), Samsung (Korea), Communications Research Centre of Canada, Nortel, and NSERC (Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada).

Dr. Yanikomeroglu is a member of the Steering Committee of the IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC), and has been involved in the organization of this conference over the years, including serving as the Technical Program Chair/Co-Chair of WCNC 2004, 2008, and 2014.

Dr. Yanikomeroglu was the General Co-Chair of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference Fall 2010 held in Ottawa (VTC2010-Fall). Dr. Yanikomeroglu has served in the editorial boards of the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Transactions on Communications, and IEEE Communications Surveys & Tutorials. He is a former chair of IEEE's Technical Committee on Personal Communications (now called Wireless Communications Technical Committee).

o    Lingjia Liu [Sí03-Mí08]: Dr. Liu received his B.S. degree in Electronic Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China in 2003 and Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, in 2008. Currently, He is an Assistant Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at the University of Kansas (KU). Prior to joining the EECS at KU, he spent more than three years in the Dallas Technology Laboratory of Samsung Electronics where he received the Global Samsung Best Paper Award twice (in 2008 and 2010 respectively). He was leading Samsungís efforts on multiuser MIMO, coordinated multipoint (CoMP) transmission, and heterogeneous networks in LTE/LTE-Advanced standards. His general research interests lie in the areas of wireless communication systems, statistical signal processing, queueing theory, and information theory, with emphasis on delay-sensitive and energy-efficient communication over wireless systems and networks. Lingjia Liu is currently serving as an Associate Editor for the EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking as well as Wiley's International Journal on Communication Systems. He is co-editor of special issues of several journals. He has been selected by the National Engineers Week Foundation Diversity Council as ďNew Faces of Engineering 2011Ē.

 

o    Tommy Svensson: Dr. Svensson is Associate Professor in Communication Systems at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. He has participated in the EU FP6 WINNER and WINNER II projects, which contributed substantially to 3GPP LTE development, the CELTIC WINNER+ project and the recently completed EU FP7 ARTIST4G project focusing on LTE-Advanced evolution, and the just started EU FP7 METIS project targeting solutions for the year 2020. He is also the initiator of a Swedish-Chinese project on IMT-Advanced and Beyond and involved in a national academic collaboration project on future wireless access. His main expertise is in design and analysis of physical layer algorithms, multiple access schemes, coordinated multipoint schemes, as well as moving relays for wireless access and wireless backhaul networks, but he also has industrial experience of higher layer design for wireless communication systems. He has co-authored two books and more than 70 journal and conference papers. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE, chairman of the IEEE Sweden VT/COM/IT chapter, and coordinator of the Communication Engineering Masterís Program at Chalmers.

 

o    Wei Yu [Sí97-Mí02-SMí08]: Wei Yu received the B.A.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering and Mathematics from the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada in 1997 and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, Stanford, CA, in 1998 and 2002, respectively. Since 2002, he has been with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, where he is now†† Professor and holds a Canada Research Chair in Information Theory and Wireless Communications.
