Dr. Chunming Qiao is a Professor at SUNY Buffalo where he directs the Lab for Advanced Network Design, Analysis, and Research (LANDER), which conducts cutting-edge research work on optical networks, wireless and mobile networks, survivable networks, and TCP/IP technologies. He has published more than 80 and 120 papers in leading technical journals and conference proceedings, respectively. His pioneering research on Optical Internet, in particular, the optical burst switching (OBS) paradigm is internationally acclaimed. In addition, his work on integrated cellular and ad hoc relaying systems (iCAR) is recognized as the harbinger for today's push towards the convergence between heterogeneous wireless technologies, and has been featured in BusinessWeek and Wireless Europe, as well as at the websites of New Scientists and CBC. His Research has been funded by a number of NSF grants including two ITR awards, and by Alcatel, Fujitsu Labs, NEC Labs, Nokia Research, Nortel, Sprint Advanced Technology Lab, Telcordia and ITRI.

Dr. Qiao have given several keynotes, tutorials and invited talks on the above research topics. He is on the editorial board of several journals including IEEE/ Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (TPDS), and was on editor of IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking (ToN) and area-editor for IEEE Communications. He have guest-edited several IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications (JSAC) and ACM/Baltzer's Journal on Mobile Networks and Applications Journal (MONET) issues. He has chaired and co-chaired a dozen of international conferences and workshops and currently chairs the IEEE Technical Subcommittee on Integrated Fiber and Wireless Technologies (FiWi).
