Wolfgang Kellerer is full professor and head of the Chair of Communication Networks in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Technical University of Munich (TUM), Munich, Germany. His research area covers methods and systems for wireless as well as fixed communication networks. Focus of his work is on network dynamics and flexibility based on Software Defined Networking and Network (Function) Virtualization for various emerging systems including 5G infrastructure, industrial communication and energy networks. In the area of wireless communication his research is targeting machine-to-machine communication for low-delay, high reliability, control-aware wireless network resource management. Before he joined TUM, Wolfgang 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, contributing to research and standardization of LTE-A and 5G technologies. In 2001 he was a visiting researcher at the Information Systems Laboratory of Stanford University, California, US. He received his Dr.-Ing. degree (Ph.D.) and his Dipl.-Ing. degree (Master) from TUM, in 1995 and 2002, respectively. He has published more than 200 papers in respective journals, conferences and workshops and is inventor of more than 40 patents and patent applications in this area. He currently serves as an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management and on the Editorial Board of the IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials. He also serves as a reviewer for the European Commission and several other research programs. In 2015, he has been awarded with an ERC Consolidator Grant from the European Commission for his research project FlexNets "Quantifying Flexibility in Communication Networks". He is a member of ACM, VDE ITG and a Senior Member of IEEE.
