Dr. M. Jamal Deen

Dr. M. Jamal Deen is Distinguished University Professor, Senior Canada Research Chair in Information Technology, and Director of the Micro- and Nano-Systems Laboratory, McMaster University. His current research interests are nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, nanotechnology and their emerging applications to health and environmental sciences. Dr. Deen’s research record includes more than 500 peer-reviewed articles (about 20% are invited), two textbooks on “Silicon Photonics- Fundamentals and Devices” and ”Fiber Optic Communications: Fundamentals and Applications”, 6 awarded patents that have been used in industry, and 13 best paper/poster/presentation awards. Over his career, he has won more than fifty awards and honors. As an undergraduate student at the University of Guyana, Dr. Deen was the top ranked mathematics and physics student and the second ranked student at the university, winning the Chancellor’s gold medal and the Irving Adler prize. As a graduate student, he was a Fulbright-Laspau Scholar and an American Vacuum Society Scholar. He is a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Electron Device Society for more than a decade. His awards and honors include the Callinan Award as well as the Electronics and Photonics Award from the Electrochemical Society; the Distinguished Researcher Award from the Province of Ontario; a Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation; the Eadie Medal from the Royal Society of Canada; McNaughton Gold Medal (highest award for engineers), the Fessenden Medal and the Ham Education Medal, all from IEEE Canada IEEE Canada In addition, he was awarded the three honorary doctorate degrees in recognition of his exceptional research and scholarly accomplishments, professionalism and service. Dr. Deen has also been elected Fellow status in ten national academies and professional societies including The Royal Society of Canada - The Academies of Arts, Humanities and Sciences (the highest honor for academics, scholars and artists in Canada), IEEE, APS (American Physical Society) and ECS (Electrochemical Society). Currently, he is serving as the elected President of the Academy of Science, The Royal Society of Canada.

Dr. Laurence T. Yang

Prof. Laurence T. Yang is Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering. He graduated from Tsinghua University, China and got his Ph.D in Computer Science from University of Victoria, Canada. He joined St. Francis Xavier University in 1999. His current research includes parallel and distributed computing, embedded and ubiquitous/pervasive computing.

He has published many papers in various refereed journals, conference proceedings and book chapters in these areas (including around 100 international journal papers such as IEEE Transactions on Computers,  IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, IEEE Transactions on System, Man and Cybernetics, IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration Systems, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics, IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine, IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems, IEEE Transactions on Circuit and Systems, IEEE Transactions on Service Computing, ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems, IEEE Systems Journal, ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems, IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, IEEE Intelligent Systems, etc).

He has been involved actively in conferences and workshops as a program/general/steering conference chair (mainly as the steering co-chair of IEEE UIC/ATC, IEEE CSE, IEEE HPCC, IEEE/IFIP EUC, IEEE ISPA, IEEE PiCom, IEEE EmbeddedCom, IEEE iThings, IEEE GreenCom, etc) and numerous conference and workshops as a program committee member. He served as the vice-chair of IEEE Technical Committee of Supercomputing Applications (TCSA) until 2004, was the chair (elected in 2008 and 2010) of IEEE Technical Committee of Scalable Computing (TCSC), the chair of IEEE Task force on Ubiquitous Computing and Intelligence (2009- ). He was also in the steering committee of IEEE/ACM Supercomputing conference series (2008-2011), and the National Resource Allocation Committee (NRAC) of Compute Canada (2009-2013).

In addition, he is the editors-in-chief of several international journals. He is serving as an editor for many international journals. He has been acting as an author/co-author or an editor/co-editor of many books from Kluwer, Springer, Nova Science, American Scientific Publishers and John Wiley & Sons. He has won several Best Paper Awards (including IEEE Best and Outstanding Conference Awards such as the IEEE 20th International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications (IEEE AINA-06), etc); one Best Paper Nomination; Distinguished Achievement Award, 2005; Canada Foundation for Innovation Award, 2003. He has been invited to give around 30 keynote talks at various international conferences and symposia.
