Next Generation Hybrid Networks and their Management

John S. Baras is a Distinguished University Professor, holding the Lockheed Martin
Chair in Systems Engineering and a Permanent Joint Appointment with the Institute
for Systems Research (ISR) and the ECE Department at the University of Maryland Col- lege Park (UMD). He received his Ph.D. degree in Applied Mathematics from Harvard
University, in 1973, and he has been with UMD since then. From 1985 to 1991, he was
the Founding Director of the ISR. Since 1992, he has been the Director of the Maryland
Center for Hybrid Networks (HYNET), which he cofounded. He is a Fellow of IEEE (Life),
SIAM, AAAS, NAI, IFAC, AMS, AIAA, Member of the National Academy of Inventors
(NAI) and a Foreign Member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA). Major
honors and awards include the 1980 George Axelby Award from the IEEE Control Systems Society,
the 2006 Leonard Abraham Prize from the IEEE Communications Society, the 2017 IEEE Simon Ramo
Medal, the 2017 AACC Richard E. Bellman Control Heritage Award, and the 2018 AIAA Aerospace
Communications Award. In 2016 he was inducted in the University of Maryland A. J. Clark School of
Engineering Innovation Hall of Fame. In June 2018 he was awarded a Doctorate Honoris Causa by
his alma mater the National Technical University of Athens, Greece. His research interests include
systems, control, optimization, autonomy, machine learning, artificial intelligence, communication
networks, applied mathematics, signal processing and understanding, robotics, computing systems,
formal methods and logic, network security and trust, systems biology, healthcare management,
modelbased systems engineering. He has been awarded nineteen patents, one software copyright,
and honored with many awards world-wide, as innovator and leader of economic development.

Automotive Radar Networks

Sumit Roy (Fellow, IEEE 2007) received the B. Tech. degree from the Indian Institute
of Technology (Kanpur) in 1983, and the M. S. and Ph. D. degrees from the University
of California (Santa Barbara), all in Electrical & Comp. Engineering (1985 and 1988 re- spectively), as well as an M. A. in Statistics and Applied Probability (1988). His previous
academic appointments were at the Moore School of Electrical Engineering, University
of Pennsylvania, and at the University of Texas, San Antonio. His research interests and
technology expertise spans analysis/design and prototyping of wireless communica- tion systems/networks, with an emphasis on various technologies: 5G wireless LANs
(802.11ax), 5G New Radio and emerging 5G/beyond 5G standards for vehicular (terrestrial and air- borne) networks, multi-standard inter-networking/coexistence and dynamic spectrum access solu- tions for spectrum sharing. He was elevated to IEEE Fellow by Communications Society for “contribu- tions to multi-user communications theory and cross-layer design of wireless networking standards”
and held the ECE-CoE Integrated Systems Term Professorship (2014-19) at Univ. of Washington in
recognition of his international reputation in the area.

He continues to be professionally active in IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) – notably IEEE
Future Networks Initiative ( for which he currently serves as Distin- guished Lecturer. He has served as Associate Editor for all the major ComSoc publications (IEEE Trans.
Communications, IEEE J. Sel. Areas of Communications, IEEE Trans. on Wireless Communications, IEEE
Trans. Mobile Computing) at various times and was previously selected for two stints as IEEE ComSoc
Distinguished Lecturer (2013-2015, 2017-18). He was also elected to Executive Comm. Member for the
National Spectrum Consortium ( Between Sep. 2020-22, he
served as Program Lead for Innovate Beyond 5G program within US DoD Office of Under Secy. R&E’s
5G-to-xG initiative
