Bio

Sérgio Ivan Lopes (BSc’04–MSc’09–PhD’14–PGdip’17) is an IEEE Senior Member (S’11–M’15–SM’20), researcher at Instituto de Telecomunicações, Assistant Professor at the Technology and Management School of the Polytechnic Institute of Viana do Castelo (ESTG-IPVC), Director of the graduation course in Networks and Computer Systems Engineering (ERSC) at the (ESTG-IPVC), and Director General at CiTin – Centro de Interface Tecnológico e Industrial. He is graduated in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering, M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering, Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering (University of Aveiro) and has a Postgraduate Diploma in Project Management (Porto Business School/University of Porto). In 2007, he has been awarded the Texas Instruments ESPA – Excellence in Signal Processing Award, and in 2015, he has been awarded the First Prize of the Fraunhofer Portugal Challenge (Ph.D. category), a distinction that rewards research of practical utility. He is the co-inventor of one patent and authored more than 80 scientific publications in international peer reviewed journals and international conference proceedings. He participated in several national and international R&D Projects, five of which in coordination activities. His research interests include cyber-physical systems, IIoT/IoT, embedded systems, edge computing/intelligence, digital signal processing and indoor positioning. In 2016, he joined the Expert Panel of the European Commission, being engaged in the evaluation of the call ICT-01-2016: Smart Cyber-Physical Systems. He is an active member of the IEEE Communications Society; actively collaborates with the IEEE Internet of Things (IoT) Initiative; and holds the position of Counselor in the Executive Committee of the IEEE IPVC Student Branch. He is the General-Chair at the Edge-IoT – International Conference on Intelligent Edge Processing in the IoT Era and has been a keynote speaker at international events such as the IEEE IoT Vertical and Topical Summit at the IEEE Radio Wireless Week 2022. When not working, he enjoys travelling, digging records, and playing with analog synths.
