Since July 2012 Wolfgang Kellerer (IEEE M'96, SM'11) is full professor and head of the Institute of Communication Networks in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of the Technische Universität München, Germany. His research area covers methods and systems for mobile as well as fixed communication networks as an infrastructure for future Internet communication. Focus of his work are concepts for the dynamic control of network infrastructure (Software Defined Networking) based on network virtualization, self-organizing networks and service platforms, high-speed optical networks and resource management in mobile networks, as well as the support of emerging applications such as Smart Grid, automobile and automation systems.

Dr. Wolfgang Kellerer studied Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the Technische Universität München. From 1996 - 2001 he was a member of the research and teaching staff of the Institute of Communication Networks at TUM, where he received his doctoral degree (Dr.-Ing.) in January 2002. In 2001 he was a visiting researcher at the Information Systems Laboratory of Stanford University, California, US.

Before he joined TUM, Dr. Kellerer pursued an industrial career being more than ten years with DOCOMO Communications Laboratories Europe GmbH , NTT DOCOMO's European research institute in Munich, Germany. His last position was head of the research department for wireless communication and networking working on research topics in the area of mobile service platforms, peer-to-peer networking, ad-hoc and sensor networks QoE-based traffic management, network virtualization, cross-layer design, wireless access and optical transport. From 2003 to 2012 he was also lecturing at TUM on Advanced Network Architectures and Services.

For 2004 and 2005 he has served as the elected Vice Chairman of the Working Group 2 (Service Architecture for the Wireless World) of the Wireless World Research Forum (WWRF). He has been member of the editorial board of Elseviers International Journal of Computer and Telecommunications Networking (COMNET) from 2005 - 2010, he is a steering board member of the IEEE International Conference on Peer-to-Peer Computing (P2P) and has served as guest editor for an IEEE Communications Magazine feature topic in 2006. He serves as an reviewer for the European Commission and several other research programs. He has published more than 100 papers in respective journals, conferences and workshops in the area of service platforms and mobile networking and is inventor/co-inventor of more than 40 patents and patent applications in this area. For one of his outstanding scientific publications he has been awarded with the ITG Award 2008 of the German EE society VDE.
