Thierry Lestable received his Engg. Degree and Ph.D from theEcole Superieure d'Electricite (Supelec) in 1997 and 2003respectively. He has more than 12 years experience in leading edgeWireless Telecommunications, is author of 40+ internationalpublications, including 2 Wiley Books, and 25+ patents. Since 2008,Dr. Lestable has been Technology & Innovation Manager atSAGEMCOM (Paris, France), in charge of Technology Strategy andRoadmap within CTO office. Dr. Lestable is expert for the European Commission (FP7), andEureka Cluster CELTIC, whilst chairing the Machine-to-Machine (M2M)Expert Group in eMobility European Technology Platform. He is theProject Manager of FP7-BeFEMTO project targeting next generationLTE-based Femtocells, and initiated the FP7-EXALTED projectdedicated to LTE-based M2M communications. Since 2010, he has beena member of the Telecom Steering Board from System@ticCompetitiveness Cluster in France. Within Alcatel labs (1998-2003), he investigated Multi-CarrierWireless Systems paving the way for 4G Chinese systems with FuTURE863 projects. Then, from 2004, Dr. Lestable was with SamsungElectronics Research Institute (SERI), UK, heading the AdvancedTechnology Group focusing on Advanced Channel Coding (LDPC),Iterative processing and Cross-Layer for MIMO-OFDM based systems.He actively contributed to IEEE 802.16m, and 802.20 standards,whilst participating in European research projects (FP6-WINNER),and creating FP7-DAVINCI Consortium. Moshe Ran holds a PhD from Tel Aviv University, and hasbeen the head of research and development authority at HolonInstitute of Technology (HIT) since 2009. He has 25 yearsexperience in state of the art communications systems and has leadR&D groups in several communication topics including: broadbandaccess technologies, 3G and 4G systems, Short-range communicationswith focus on Ultra-wideband (UWB) technologies, error correctioncodes. Dr. Ran formerly held prominent management and technicalpositions including CEO of MostlyTek Ltd. He has been an activemember in standards bodies and technology-related partnershipsincluding: IEEE802.16, ETSI/BRAN and WWRF. He was the projectmanager and coordinator of IST-FP6 STREP project named UROOF,targeting UWB over optical fibre for next generation broadbandcommunications. He is a senior member of IEEE and has publishedmore than 60 technical international publications and papers in theareas of error control coding and broadband wireless/wirelineintegration.
