Dr. Eman Hammad is an interdisciplinary researcher, with the Texas A&M University -Commerce/RELLIS, focusing on the cybersecurity, trustworthiness and resilience of future networks, emerging technologies & critical infrastructure systems. Eman obtained her PhD in Electrical & Computer Engineering from the University of Toronto. She combines practical experience and
theoretical research to shape her vision for resilient-by-design solutions in the connected world. Eman’s primary focus is on innovations in systems trust and resilience, and how a deeper
understanding of interactions between systems’ components, communication and enabling technologies can help design new classes of operational solutions that are more resilient to
cyber/physical disruptions. Her research has been recognized with merit awards (best paper award, best poster award) and has been featured on the Smart Cybersecurity Network. Eman is a senior IEEE member who has been an active volunteer, and is currently serving as the chair of Toronto ComSoc Chapter, and co-chair of the IEEE 5G Security working group for the International Network Generations Roadmap (INGR). She delivered several invited talks in academic and industrial conferences, chaired and co-chaired several conferences and workshops. Eman is an active advocate for diversity in STEM and Cybersecurity. Her service has been recognized by IEEE chapter achievement and exemplary service awards.
Dr. Patwary Full Professor of Telecommunications & Director of Centre for Future Networks & Autonomous Systems (CeFNAS) at the Faculty of Science & Engineering in University of Wolverhampton since June 2020. He is also research lead for ‘5G Connected Forest Project’ funded by DCMS that aims at accelerating the ‘visitor economy’ in Midlands. He was a full Professor of telecommunication networks and digital productivity and the Head of the Intelligent Systems and Networks (ISN) Research Group, at School of Computing and Digital Technology, Birmingham City University, UK, between 2017 till 2020; he was also the Principal Architect for a large scale 5G testbed in the UK to accelerate digital productivity and to develop urban connected community with West Midland 5G during 2018-2020. He was also Full Professor of wireless systems and digital productivity & the Chair of the Centre of Excellence on Digital Productivity with Connected Services, Staffordshire University, until 2017. His current research interests include intelligent & autonomous systems, wireless communication systems design and optimization, future generation of cellular network architecture, and business modelling for data-economy. He is Chartered Engineer of Engineering-Council UK, Senior Member of IEEE, Fellow of IET, and co-chair of Testbed working group of International Network Generation Roadmap at IEEE.
Importance and Timeliness:
This workshop is vital and timely to enable focused research to enable successful, efficient and trustworthy handling and management of expected voluminous amounts of diverse
data in B5G and 6G. The fact that most operational aspects of B5G/6G and many of business applications utilizing B5G/6G will be relying on data-driven solutions.
