Bio.

Fen Zhou is a Full Professor at IMT Nord Europe, Institut Mines-Télécom, France. Prior to that, he was an Associate Professor at the LIA lab of the Avignon University (France) from 2012 to 2018 and then at Institut Superieur d'Electronique de Paris (ISEP) until 2020. He obtained the HDR from Avignon University in 2018 and his PhD from INSA of Rennes in 2010. His Ph.D thesis was jointly supervised by Prof. Bernard Cousin and Prof. Miklos Molnar. Between 2010 and 2012, he was with the computer science department of IMT Atlantique (ex Telecom Bretagne) as a post-doc. In the past ten years, he has coordinated or co-coordinated several research projects in the national or international levels, such as PHC Cai Yuanpei, Campus France Eiffel Scholarship, Science Sans Frontiers, Campus France Profas B+, PACA Regional project, LIA lab project, Open project of Shanghai Jiaotong University. He has also been invovled in the Beyond 5G project, European FP7 CNG project, Zewall project, Vaucluse @Muse project, etc.

Dr. Zhou is a Senior Member of IEEE. He has served as a TPC Co-chair, Symposium Co-chair, Publicity Co-chairs, Local Organization Chair, and Session Chair in several International Conferences (IEEE BMSB’20, IEEE ICNC’18, IEEE WCSP’14, IEEE Wimob’15/19, NetgCOOP’16, IEEE MovNet’17, IEEE Globecom’13, IEEE Mascots’19, IFIP Network’20 etc.). He has also served on the program committees for several international conferences such as IEEE INFOCOM, IEEE GLOBECOM, IEEE ONDM, and IEEE IWCMC. From 2016 to 2020, he was awarded the French Research Bonus (PEDR).
