Speaker Bio

Yevgeni Koucheryavy is a Full Professor and Lab Director in the Department of Electronics and Communications Engineering at the Tampere University of Technology (TUT), Finland. He received his MSc degree (1997) from the State University of Telecommunications, St. Petersburg, Russia, and his PhD degree (2004) from the TUT. Yevgeni has acted as a PhD evaluation committee member or examiner in several countries. He has worked in a number of research and development projects within different frameworks, e.g., FP7, and companies including Nokia, Nokia Siemens Networks, Intel, Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Cisco, etc. Within last 3 years (2011 – 2013) Yevgeni managed to attract over 2 mln Euros as a research funding from sources external to TUT . He is an invited expert in the Skolkovo Foundation (Russia) and acts as an external reviewer for state funding agencies of several European countries. Yevgeni has authored or co-authored over 100 papers in the field of advanced wired and wireless networking and communications. His current research interests include various aspects in heterogeneous wireless communication networks and systems, network and services performance evaluation, the Internet of Things and its standardization, nanocommunications. Yevgeni is an Associate Technical Editor of IEEE Communications Magazine, Editor of IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials and Editor of IEEE Communication Society Technology News. Yevgeni is a Senior IEEE member.


Nanonetworks, i.e., networks of nano-devices, under the Internet of Nano Things (IoNT) concept will enable more advanced applications of nanotechnology in the biomedical, environmental, energy, military and other fields. To date, however, it is not clear how nano-devices will communicate. Our mission is to conduct research on nanoscale machines networking and communications as a next step in modern communication technologies. In particular, this field is totally an unexplored area riddled with numerous research challenges. More specifically, many fundamental communication network requirements and functionalities, including network architectures, topologies, algorithms for nanoscale communication, coverage/connectivity, relay, broadcast, and medium access control mechanisms, synchronization, routing, addressing, reliable information coding, error control, will be redefined and redesigned. Various nanoscale communication paradigms such as Graphene-based Nanonetworks and Molecular-based Nano-communication networks will be discussed.
