Mats I. Pettersson, PhD
(Blekinge Institute of Technology – Sweden)

Mats I. Pettersson received an M.Sc. in Engineering Physics, a Licentiate degree in Radio and Space Science and a Ph.D. in Signal Processing, all from the Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. The thesis focused on signal processing for radar remote sensing. For some years he worked with mobile communication research at Ericsson, and for ten years he was employed at Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI). At FOI, he worked as a research manager and a researcher, mainly focusing on ultra-wideband low-frequency SAR systems. Since 2005, he has been employed at Blekinge Institute of Technology where he is a Professor and research director. His work is related to Radar signal processing where his main interests are SAR inversion and processing, Space-Time Adaptive Processing (STAP), SAR change detection, automotive radar, and Radio Occultation.

Paulo Cesar Guerreiro Costa, PhD
(George Mason University – USA)
Paulo Cesar G. Costa, Ph.D, is Associate Professor of Systems Engineering and Operations Department and Co-Director of the Radio and Radar Engineering Laboratory, both at GMU. His research interests comprise the areas of cyber security, decision support systems, systems design and integration, multisensory data fusion, probabilistic representation and reasoning. As a lecturer, Prof. Costa teaches courses on information fusion, dynamic systems modeling, decision support systems design, and probabilistic reasoning. As a researcher, he became an expert in integrating semantic technologies and uncertainty management, and is a pioneer in the field of probabilistic ontologies. Dr. Costa developed PR-OWL, a probabilistic ontology language for the Semantic Web, and is a key contributor to UnBBayes-MEBN, a Java-based, open source implementation of Multi-Entity Bayesian Networks and the PR-OWL language. His research path also includes work as a W3C invited expert in the area of uncertainty reasoning. Prof. Costa’s academic service includes participation in technical program in several academic conferences and journals, as well as member of review boards in NSF, National Academies of Engineering, and others. He is an IEEE Senior Member and an elected member of the Board of Directors of the International Society of Information Fusion.
Luigi T. DeLuca, PhD
(Politecnico di Milano – Italy)
Dr. Luigi T. DeLuca is a Professor of Aerospace Propulsion at Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy. For years the scientific activity has mostly been devoted to fundamental combustion problems of solid-phase energetic materials, from both experimental and theoretical viewpoints, with specific attention to: steady burning rates and temperature profiles, radiant ignition, static and dynamic extinction, nonsteady burning, linear and nonlinear intrinsic burning stability, radiation assisted/augmented burning, deflagration limits, frequency response functions, transient flame modeling, and so on. In the more recent years, interests have moved to combustion of innovative high-energy condensed materials, nanoenergetics for propulsion, performance of metallized formulations, agglomeration and aggregation, dual metal formulations, quasi-steady regression rates, solid and hybrid rocket motors, space launchers, in-space propulsion. Dr. Luigi T. DeLuca directed several international collaborative research efforts in particular with the former Soviet Union countries (CNR, RAS, INTAS, ISTC) and organized several International Workshops (IWCP) attended by the most qualified international scientists. He has been invited for specialized lectures and presentations in most of the leading countries in aerospace propulsion.
Fábio Mariano Bayer, PhD
(Universidade Federal de Santa Maria – Brazil)
­Professor Fábio Mariano Bayer has a degree in Mathematics from the Federal University of Santa Maria (UFSM) and a Ph.D. in Statistics from the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE). He is currently a Professor of the Statistics Department, UFSM, a researcher at the Laboratory of Space Sciences of Santa Maria (LACESM), researcher of the CNPq in the Mathematics and Statistics Committee and a member of the Advisory Committee of the Exact Sciences of the  Fundação de Amparo do Rio Grande do Sul (FAPERGS). Prof. Bayer is a professor of the Graduate Program in Production Engineering at UFSM, professor of the Graduate Program in Statistics of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) and, in 2019, he is spending his sabbatical license as a Visiting Professor in the Telecommunications and Remote Sensing Laboratory, University of Pavia, Italy. Dr. Bayer is also the leader of the Computational Statistics and Data Science research group, registered in the CNPq research groups directory, and associate editor of the journal Statistics, Optimization and Information Computing (SOIC). His areas of interest are computational statistics, classical inference, regression models, dynamic models, and statistical signal processing.
André Pérennou, PhD
(École Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Brest – France)

André Pérennou was born in France, in 1966. He received the M. Sc. and Ph.D degrees from the University of Brest, France in 1989 and 1994 respectively. In 1995, he joined as an Associate Professor the Optical Laboratory, National School of Engineers of Brest, France. Since 2010, he has been a Professor with the Optical Laboratory, now called CNRS Lab-STICC. He was Deputy head of the Lab-STICC at the ENIB from 2012 to 2017 and head of electronic research department since 2017. His current research interests include acousto-optic interaction for optical communication devices and networks, and the development of photonic solution for cabled seafloor networks.

Ammar Sharaiha, PhD
(École Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Brest – France)

Ammar Sharaiha was born in Amman, Jordan, in 1956. He received the M. Sc. and Ph.D degrees from the University of Rennes I, France in 1981 and 1984 respectively. He joined the École Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Brest, France (ENIB) as Associate Professor (Maître de Conférences) in 1989; later, as Full Professor (Professeur des Universités) in 2001. He was head of Research at ENIB from 2010-2014, co-head of research team in Lab-STICC (UMR CNRS) from 2012 to 2016 and head of electronic research department from 2010-2016.
