Michel Raynal  

IRISA, France

Michel Raynal has been a professor of computer science since 1981. At IRISA (CNRS-INRIA-University joint computing research laboratory located in Rennes), he founded a research group on Distributed Algorithms in 1983. His research interests include distributed algorithms, distributed computing systems, networks and dependability. His main interest lies in the fundamental principles that underly the design and the construction of distributed computing systems. He has been Principal Investigator of a number of research grants in these areas, and has been invited by many universities all over the world to give lectures on distributed algorithms and distributed computing. Michel Raynal has published more than 100 papers in scientific journals. He has written seven books and served in program committees for more than 100 international conferences all over the world. He is the European representative in the IEEE technical committee on Distributed Computing.

Guevara Noubir

Northeastern University, USA

Guevara Noubir has received his PhD in Computer Science from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology at Lausanne (EPFL 1996) and his engineering diploma (MS) from École Nationale Supérieure d’Informatique et de Mathématiques Appliquées at Grenoble ((ENSIMAG 1991). Prior to joining Northeastern University in 2001, he was a senior research scientist at CSEM SA (Switzerland) where he led several research project and contributed to the definition of the third generation Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) standardized as 3GPP WCDMA. He held visiting research positions at Eurecom, MIT, and UNL. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE, a member of the ACM, and a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award. He serves on the editorial board of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, and the Elsevier Computer Networks Journal. He regularly serves on the TPC of wireless networking and security conferences such as IEEE Infocom, ACM WiSec, ACM Mobicom, ACM MobiHoc.
