He has co-authored more than 30 peer-reviewed publications (e.g., IFIP/IEEE IM, IEEE LCN, IFIP/ACM AIMS, IFIP Networking, IEEE P2P, IEEE ICC) and acted as a reviewer for more than 50 journals, conferences, and workshops (e.g., IEEE Multimedia, Computer Communications, Computer Networks, JNSM, Springer P2P Networking and Applications, Globecom, ICC, P2P, NOMS, DSOM, MMNS, AIMS, GridNets).
is currently an Associate Professor in the School of Information Systems at
Singapore Management University (SMU). Previously, he has held
research positions at IBM Research & Telcordia Technologies Applied Research (formerly Bellcore) in the US, where he led and conducted research in the
broad areas of mobile & pervasive computing, stream & event-based computing and high-speed wireless networks. He is a co-author on papers that received
the Best Paper awards in EUC 2008, ACM WOWMOM 2002 and IEEE MILCOM 2001. He is presently on the editorial board of the Journal of
Pervasive and Mobile Computing and chaired the IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Computer Communications (TCCC) from 2005-2007.
Archan received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Maryland at College Park in May, 2000, and his B.Tech in
Electronics and Communication Engineering from IIT Kharagpur, India in July 1993.
Dr. Katrin Hoeper received her PhD degree in E&CE from the University of Waterloo, Canada in 2007. She received her MASc degree in Electrical Engineering from the Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany in 2002. Katrin was a Guest Researcher in the Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), USA. She currently works in Motorola's Advanced Technology and Research Group as a Security Research Engineer. Katrin has contributed to various standards, such as NIST SP 800-120, IEEE 802.11r/s, IEEE 802.16e, IEEE 802.21, ANSI X9.112 and several IETF Internet Drafts. Her research publications cover key management and authentication in mobile ad hoc networks, remote access authentication and secure seamless mobility in heterogeneous networks.
Anura Jayasumana is a Professor of electrical and computer engineering at Colorado State University, where he also holds a joint appointment as Professor of computer science.

The IEEE CS TCCC was founded in the mid 1970s upon the upcoming of LANs and communications between nodes. Ethernet and related approaches have seen a majority of support in terms of standards work from the TCCC. Its major flagship conference was since the early days the LCN (IEEE Conference on Local Area Networks), which was run in Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A. until its 22nd appearance in 1997. Afterwards, it was held at different locations in the US, moved into Europe and Australia, and sees an alternating location between non-US and US sites. Details on some older LCN conferences can be found here.
