ABOUT THE EDITORS


Stefano Basagni received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Milan,
Italy in 1998 and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas, Dallas in
2001. He received his Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of
Pisa, Italy, in 1991. Since January 2002, he has been assistant professor of Computer En-
gineering in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of Northeastern Uni-
versity. Dr. Basagni™s interests include research and implementation aspects of mobile net-
works and wireless communication systems, with an emphasis on the design and
implementation of protocols for personal area networks, ad hoc networking, and their en-
abling technologies (Bluetooth, IEEE 802.11, etc.). In these fields, Dr. Basagni has co-
authored more than 36 papers and published in peer-reviewed international journals and
conference proceedings. Dr. Basagni served as a guest editor of the special issue of the
Journal on Special Topics in Mobile Networking and Applications (MONET) on Multi-
point Communication in Wireless Mobile Networks, as well as co-guest editor (with Dr. S.
J. Lee) of the special issue on ad hoc networking for the Wiley-Interscience journal Wire-
less Communications & Mobile Computing (WCMC). He has served on Technical Pro-
gram and Organizing committees for leading conferences, such as the ACM/SIGMOBILE
MobiCom and ACM/SIGMOBILE MobiHoc. He has also served as session chair and or-
ganizer for IEEE, ACM, and IASTED conferences. Dr. Basagni has been a reviewer for
several international journals, including the SIAM Journal on Computing, ACM/IEEE
Transactions on Networking, IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, Infor-
mation Processing Letters, IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, ACM/Kluwer
Wireless Networks, and ACM/Kluwer MONET and Computer Networks. Dr. Basagni is a
member of the ACM, the IEEE, ACM SIGMOBILE and the IEEE Communication and
Computer societies.

Marco Conti received the Laurea degree in Computer Science from the University of
Pisa, Italy, in 1987. In 1987, he joined the Italian National Research Council (CNR). He is
currently a senior researcher at CNR-IIT. His research interests include Internet architec-

ture and protocols, wireless networks, ad hoc networking, mobile computing, and QoS in
packet switching networks. He co-authored the book, Metropolitan Area Networks. He has
published in journals and conference proceedings more than 120 research papers related
to design, modeling, and performance evaluation of computer-network architectures and
protocols. He served as TPC chair of the IFIP-TC6 Conferences “Networking2002,” and
“PWC2003,” and as TPC co-chair of ACM WoWMoM 2002, the First IFIP-TC6 Confer-
ence on Wireless On-demand Network Systems (WONS 2004), and the 2nd Workshop on
Modeling and Optimization in Mobile, Ad Hoc and Wireless Networks (WiOpt ™04). He is
serving as program co-chair of the First International Workshop on Broadband Wireless
Multimedia (BroadWIM 2004), vice program co-chair for the 1st IEEE Conference on
Mobile Ad-Hoc and Sensor Systems (MASS-2004), and Workshops Co-chair for IEEE
PerCom 2005. He is on the editorial board of Ad Hoc Networks journal and ACM Mobile
Computing and Communications Review. He served as guest editor for the Cluster Com-
puting Journal special issue on mobile ad hoc networking, IEEE Transactions on Comput-
ers special issue on “Quality of Service issues in Internet Web Services, ACM/Kluwer
Mobile Networks & Applications Journal special issue on mobile ad hoc networks, and the
“Networking2002” journal special issues on: Performance Evaluation, Cluster Comput-
ing and ACM/Kluwer Wireless Networks Journals. He is member of IFIP WGs 6.2, 6.3,
and 6.8.

Silvia Giordano has a Ph.D. from the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL),
Switzerland. She is currently working as senior researcher at the University of Applied
Science”SUPSI in Ticino, Switzerland. She is teaching several courses in the areas of
wireless and mobile networking, quality of services, and networks applications. Previous-
ly, she was on the faculty of the EPFL and the University of Pisa. Since October 2001, she
has also been an associate researcher at CNR, Pisa. She has published extensively in jour-
nals, magazines, and conferences in the areas of quality of services, traffic control, wire-
less and mobile ad hoc networks. She has participated in several European ACTS/IST pro-
jects and European Science Foundation (ESF) activities. She was invited by the ESF to
participate at the ERCIM-PESC meeting held at CWI, Amsterdam, May 2002, for devel-
oping a joint vision for the future of e-Science. Since 1999, she has served as technical
editor of IEEE Communications Magazine, and is currently the series co-editor of the new
series on adhoc and sensor networks of the IEEE Communication Magazine. She has co-
edited several special issues of IEEE Communications Magazine and Baltzer MONET and
Cluster Computing on mobile ad hoc networking and QoS networking. She will be gener-
al chair of the 2005 edition of IFIP conference WONS (Wireless On-demand Network
Systems) and has served on the executive committee and TPC of several international
conferences. She also serves as reviewer on transactions and journals. She is a member of
IEEE Computer Society and IFIP WG 6.8. Her current research interests include QoS and
traffic control and wireless and mobile ad hoc networks.

Ivan Stojmenovic received Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in 1979
and 1983, respectively, from the University of Novi Sad, Yugoslavia, and a Ph.D. in Math-
ematics in 1985 from the University of Zagreb. He earned a third degree prize at Interna-
tional Mathematics Olympiad for high school students in 1976. In 1980, he joined the In-
stitute of Mathematics, University of Novi Sad and in 1988, joined the faculty in the
Computer Science Department at the University of Ottawa, Canada, where he currently
holds the position of a full professor in SITE. Since June 2000, he is frequently in Mexico
