Prof. Leonid Kazovsky joined Stanford University in 1990. He founded Photonics and Networking Research Laboratory (PNRL) at Stanford University and leads NRL since establishing it in 1990. PNRL is conducting research on green (energy efficient) optical/wireless access, inbuilding networks, quasipassive photonic components, and nextgeneration Internet architectures. Prior to joining Stanford, Prof. Kazovsky was with Bellcore doing research on coherent, WDM, highspeed and other advanced optical fiber communication systems. Prof. Kazovsky’s research of coherent optical systems resulted in what is widely considered key foundations of modern coherent systems.Prof. Kazovsky authored or coauthored three books, three book chapters, sixty invited journal papers and invited conference talks, and hundreds of contributed journal and conference technical papers . His latest book, Broadband Optical Access Networks, was published by John Wiley & Sons in 2011. Prof. Kazovsky is a Fellow of IEEE and a Fellow of OSA.
Pablo Pavón Mariño was born in Ourense (Spain). He received his Telecommunications Engineering degree from the University of Vigo (Spain) in 1999. In 2000 he joined the Technical University of Cartagena (Spain), where he received his Ph.D. degree in Telecommunications in 2004. In 2010 he received his MSc degree in Mathematics. Since 2007, he has been working as an Associate Professor in the Department of Information Technologies and Communications of the Technical University of Cartagena. His research interests include performance evaluation and optimization of communication networks. He is author or co-author of > 100 papers in leading journals and conferences, is author of a book in network optimization, and is leading the Net2Plan open-source initiative. He has served as a General Chair in several international conferences, including ONDM 2016.
Miquel Garrich Alabarce: He received the telecommunications engineering degree from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain, in October 2009 and the Ph.D. degree from Politecnico di Torino, Italy, in February 2013. From July 2011 to April 2012 he was academic visitor at the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering, University of Essex, UK. He is currently working as senior researcher in the optical systems division at CPqD (, Campinas, Brazil. He leads CPqD’s Optical Networks team and coordinates several activities including R&D in optical amplifiers, reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers and Software Defined Networking. He has co-authored more than 40 technical-scientific papers and his research interests include switching interconnection architectures, optical technology, high performance optical networks and Network Functions Virtualization.
