Biography

Prof. Steven Latré, is an assistant professor at the University of Antwerp and imec, Belgium. He is leading the IDLab Antwerp  research group (45+ members), which is performing applied and fundamental research in the area of communication networks and distributed systems.

 

He received a Master of Science degree in computer science from Ghent University, Belgium and a Ph.D. in Computer Science Engineering from the same university with the title “Autonomic Quality of Experience Management of Multimedia Services”. His research expertise focuses on management and control of both networking and computing applications. In this context, he has focused on Quality of Experience optimization and management, multimedia management, software defined networking and network virtualization. He currently focuses on the management of large-scale Internet of Things environments and the interplay with cloud computing. He has also been involved in several national and European research projects (e.g., FP6 MUSE, FP7 ECODE, FP7 OCEAN, FP7 FLAMINGO). He is author or co-author of more than 65 papers published in international journals or in the proceedings of international conferences. He is the recipient of the IEEE COMSOC award for best PhD in network and service management 2012, the IEEE NOMS Young Professional award 2014 and is a member of the Young Academy Belgium.
