Dr. Allan Boardman

Prof. Allan Boardman received Ph.D. from the University of Durham. He is Professor of Applied Physics in the University of Salford. He is a worldwide expert on the global revolution with metamaterials that are now transforming science. These are artificial, very specialised, materials beyond the control of Nature. There are many conferences now on metamaterials and they have recently included the very important SPIE Photonics Europe meeting in April 2018 in Strasbourg, which was the focus of global leaders in this field. He was the co-Chair of this huge metamaterial conference under the Photonics Europe heading. He holds a Doctor of Science degree from the University of Durham and is responsible for 328 peer-reviewed and other publications, generating 5432 citations. He has been Topical Editor for the Journal of the Optical Society of America B for Metamaterials and Photonic Structures and for the UK Institute of Physics Journal of Optics. He is a Fellow of the SPIE and a Fellow of the Optical Society of America. He is also a Fellow of the UK Institute of Physics and the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications. He is well-known both in the UK, and globally, for his work on surface plasmons and guided wave optics, especially nonlinear waves and solitons. He is the leading theorist looking at nonlinear guided magneto optic waves in meta materials, which is why he was the co-Chair of the 2018 globally leading SPIE Photonics Europe held biannually in Europe.  This is in addition to being, for some time, the co-Chair of SPIE Annual Optics and Photonics meeting held annually in San Diego, USA. He has organized many conferences and has been a Director of a number of NATO Advanced Study Institutes. His principal research activities cover linear and nonlinear surface waves, which can be either electromagnetic, or acoustic. His particular emphasis is on negative index and hyperbolic metamaterials. His work covers, beautifully, solitons in nonlinear gyroelectric media, nonlinear electromagnetic modelling, nonlinear microwave magnetics, complex microwave materials, magneto-photonic band gap phenomena, dissipative solitons and electromagnetic modelling for important devices.  All of this metamaterial work leads perfectly to cloaking devices that nicely hide objects that must not be seen by certain people. It also maps onto biomedical applications that will transform tumour control by hiding them from dangerous actions. Two dramatic breakthroughs for his work involve the publication on Trapped Rainbows with a citation of 201 and his co-authorship of the Space-time History Editor paper, which was voted by Physics World to be the third out of 10 most important scientific breakthroughs of 2011.


Dr. Rino Micheloni

Dr. Rino Micheloni is Vice-President and Fellow at Microsemi Corporation, where he currently runs the Flash Signal Processing Labs in Milan, Italy, with special focus on NAND Flash, Error Correction Codes, and Machine Learning. Prior to joining Microsemi, he was Fellow at PMC-Sierra, working on NAND Flash characterization, LDPC, and NAND Signal Processing as part of the team developing Flash controllers for PCIe SSDs. Before that, he was with IDT (Integrated Device Technology) as Lead Flash Technologist, driving the architecture and design of the BCH engine in the world's first PCIe NVMe SSD controller. Early in his career, he led NAND design teams at STMicroelectronics, Hynix, and Infineon/Qimonda; during this time, he developed the industry's first MLC NOR device with embedded ECC technology and the industry's first MLC NAND with embedded BCH.  Dr. Micheloni is IEEE Senior Member, he has co-authored more than 70 publications, and he holds 278 patents worldwide (including 131 US patents). He received the STMicroelectronics Exceptional Patent Award in 2003 and 2004, and the Infineon/Qimonda IP Award in 2007.

Dr. Rino Micheloni has published the following books:

Solid-State-Drives (SSDs) Modeling (2017), 3D Flash Memories (2016), Inside Solid State Drives (2013), Inside NAND Flash Memories (2010), Error Correction Codes for Non-Volatile Memories (2008), Memories in Wireless Systems (2008), and VLSI-Design of Non-Volatile Memories (2005).

Dr. Werner Mohr

Werner Mohr was graduated from the University of Hannover, Germany, with the Master Degree in electrical engineering in 1981 and with the Ph.D. degree in 1987.

Dr. Werner Mohr joined Siemens AG, Mobile Network Division in Munich, Germany in 1991. He was involved in several EU funded projects and ETSI standardization groups on UMTS and systems beyond 3G. Since December 1996 he was project manager of the European ACTS FRAMES Project until the project finished in August 1999. This project developed the basic concepts of the UMTS radio interface. Since April 2007 he was with Nokia Siemens Networks and since September 2013 with Nokia Solutions and Networks (now Nokia) in Munich Germany, where he is Head of Research Alliances. He was the coordinator of the WINNER Project in Framework Program 6 of the European Commission, chairman of WWI (Wireless World Initiative) and of the Eureka Celtic project WINNER+. The WINNER projects laid the foundation for the radio interface for IMT-Advanced and provided the starting point for the 3GPP LTE standardization. In Framework Program 7 he was coordinator of the FINSENY project as part of the Future Internet Public Private Partnership (FI-PPP) and chairman of the FI-PPP Steering Board from May 2013 to June 2014. In addition, he was vice chair of the eMobility European Technology Platform in the period 2008 – 2009 and chairperson of the Net!Works (formerly called eMobility) chairperson for the periods 2010 – 2011 and 2012 – 2013. He was elected in December 2013 as chairperson of the new communications networks related ETP NetWorld2020 for the period until December 2016, which was launched in October 2013 based on the former Net!Works and ISI ETPs. Werner Mohr was in addition Chair of the Board of the 5G Infrastructure Association as part of 5G PPP of the EU Commission from its start in November 2013 until December 2016. Werner Mohr was chair of the "Wireless World Research Forum – WWRF" from its launch in August 2001 up to December 2003. He is member of VDE (Association for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies, Germany) and Senior Member of IEEE. 1990 he received the Award of the ITG (Information Technology Society) in VDE. He was board member of ITG in VDE, Germany for the term 2006 to 2008 and was re-elected for the terms 2009 to 2011 and 2012 to 2014. Werner Mohr is co-author of a book on "Third Generation Mobile Communication Systems" a book on "Radio Technologies and Concepts for IMT-Advanced" and a book “Mobile and Wireless Communications for IMT-Advanced and Beyond”. In December 2016 Werner Mohr received the IEEE Communications Society Award for Public Service in the Field of Telecommunications.
