Patrick Marsch received his Dipl.-Ing. and Dr.-Ing. degrees from Technische Universität Dresden, Germany, in 2004 and 2010, respectively. After leading a research group at TU Dresden, Germany, he is now heading a research department within Nokia Bell Labs, Wroclaw, Poland. He has published 60+ journal or conference papers, obtained 4 best paper awards, and received the Philipp Reis Prize for pioneering work in the field of Coordinated Multi-Point. Patrick was the technical coordinator of the project EASY-C, where the world’s first large-scale testbeds for LTE-A techniques were established, and is the technical manager of the 5G PPP project METIS-II.


Raymond Knopp is professor in the Mobile Communications Department at EURECOM. He received the B.Eng. (Honours) and the M.Eng. degrees in Electrical Engineering from McGill University, Montreal, Canada, in 1992 and 1993, respectively. From 1993-1997 he was a research assistant in the Mobile Communications Department at EURECOM working towards the PhD degree in Communication Systems from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Lausanne. From 1997-2000 he was a research associate in the Mobile Communications Laboratory (LCM) of the Communication Systems Department of EPFL. His current research and teaching interests are in the area of digital communications, software radio architectures, and implementation aspects of signal processing systems and real-time wireless networking protocols. He has a proven track record in managing both fundamental and experimental research projects at an international level and is also General Secretary of the OpenAirInterface.org open-source wireless radio platform initiative which aims to bridge the gap between cutting-edge theoretical advances in wireless communications and practical designs.


Jens Zander is a full professor, co-founder and Scientific Director of Wireless@KTH at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Stockholm, Sweden). Dr Zander has authored several textbooks on radio communication and radio resource management. He is on the board of directors of the Swedish National Post and Telecom Agency (PTS) and a member of the Royal Academy of Engineering Sciences. He has been TPC Chair of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Conferences in 1994 and 2004, General Chair for Crowncom 2012 and IEEE DySPAN 2015, and is one of the organizers of the Johannesberg Summits on 5G and Future Wireless Systems. His current research interests include architectures, resource and flexible spectrum management regimes as well as economic models for future wireless infrastructures.
