Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba GUEYE was born in Dakar, Senegal. He received his Master in Computer Science from the University Cheikh Anta Diop de Dakar (Senegal), and Master’s degree in Networking from University Pierre et Marie Curie – Sorbonne Université in 2003. In December 2006, he received the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University Pierre et Marie Curie – Sorbonne Universités, Paris, France. Between 2007 and 2010, he was Research Assistant (PostDoc position) at the Université de Liège(Belgium), Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department. His research interests are in Internet measurements, focusing on Internet Coordinate Systems (ICS), measurement-based geolocation, and Wireless Sensors Networks (WSN), with recent focus on green cloud computing and network virtualization. In fact, the energy consumed during transport and switching from the customers towards the cloud and vice versa represents a significant percentage according to the overall consumption of the cloud. Since the services provided by cloud computing are yet at their infancy, the transport of information is another matter that needs to be addressed. He was the head of Computer Science Laboratory between 2014 and 2021. He is currently full professor with University Cheikh Anta Diop, the head of Computer Science department, and the president of ASCII organization. He received the grade of Full Professor and Associated Professor issued by the CAMES respectively in 2020 and 2011. He was a Visiting Scientist at UQÀM (Montréal, Canada) during the 2011/12 academic year.
I am a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto. My research area is computer networks. Most of my current research is on network calculus and self-organizing networks.
I am a senior researcher from the Institute of Communication Networks at Hamburg University of Technology. I completed my PhD in the area of wireless multi hop ad hoc networks at the University of Bremen. My current research interests focus on achieving ultra reliable wireless communication for challenging IP-based applications.
During the last several years, I had the opportunity and pleasure of experimenting with more innovative teaching methods, like problem based learning (PBL) and project based learning. I strongly believe that the way we teach needs to be modernised and adapted to the needs and preferences not only of the new generation, but especially to the requirements of industry and society.

He is the author of more than 130 full papers published in leading international peer-reviewed publications and has a history of dedication to research activities such as the organization of scientific events, participation in the TPC of relevant symposia, and participation editorial board member of various journals.
Promethee Spathis is an Associate Professor of Computer Science in the Laboratoire d’Informatique de Paris 6 and a Member of the Faculty of Sciences at Sorbonne Université. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from UPMC in 2003. He defended his Habilitation thesis (HDR) in 2016. His main research interest is in the study of data kinematics in large-scale mobile systems.
I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at UIUC. I am also an Affiliate Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, an Affiliate Research Professor in the Coordinated Science Laboratory, Affiliate Associate Professor in the School of Information Sciences, and a member of the Information Trust Institute. I am also Chief Science Officer of Veriflow and I serve as the Director of Education for ACM SIGCOMM. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from UC Berkeley.
My research focuses on the design, analysis, and implementation of networked and distributed systems, with an emphasis on network virtualization, routing, network algorithms, systems security, and cloud services. I like taking a multi-pronged approach to system design, building systems that work well in practice but are grounded in strong theoretical principles. My recent work involves network security, network verification, and Internet of Things.
