He is a Senior Member of IEEE and a Member of ACM and AAAI.

Seong-Lyun Kim from Yonsei University, will talk us about “5G testbed results for robotic controls”.


Seong-Lyun Kim received the B.S. degree in economics from Seoul National University, and the M.S. and Ph.D. integrated degree in operations research (with application to wireless networks) from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology. He was an Assistant Professor of radio communication systems at the Department of Signals, Sensors and Systems, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden. He was also a Visiting Professor at the Control Engineering Group, Helsinki University of Technology (now Aalto), Finland, the KTH Center for Wireless Systems, and the Graduate School of Informatics, Kyoto University, Japan. He is currently a Professor at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Yonsei University, Seoul, Republic of Korea, heading the Robotic and Mobile Networks Laboratory (RAMO) and the Center for Flexible Radio (CFR+). He is a co-directing H2020 EUK PriMO-5G project, and leading Smart Factory Committee of 5G Forum, Republic of Korea. He consulted various companies in the area of wireless systems both in South Korea and abroad. He has published numerous papers, including the coauthored book Radio Resource Management for Wireless Networks (with Prof. Jens Zander). His research interests include radio resource management, information theory in wireless networks, collective intelligence, and robotic networks. He served as a technical committee member or a chair for various conferences, and an Editorial Board Member of IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, IEEE Communications Letters, Control Engineering Practice (Elsevier), ICT Express (Elsevier), and Journal of Communications and Network. He also served as the Leading Guest Editor for IEEE Wireless Communications and IEEE Network for wireless communications in networked robotics, more recently IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications and IEEE Transactions on Cognitive Communications and Networking.

Seuny-Woo Ko from Inha University, will talk us about “Combinatorial data augmentation: A key enabler to bridge geometry-and data-driven WiFi positioning”.


Seung-Woo Ko received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Yonsei University, South Korea, in 2006, 2007, and 2013, respectively. Since 2022, he has been an Assistant Professor with the Department of Smart Mobility Engineering, Inha University. Before joining Inha University, he was an Assistant Professor at Korea Maritime and Ocean University (KMOU), Busan, South Korea, from 2019 to 2022, a Senior Researcher with LG Electronics, South Korea, from 2013 to 2014, and a Post-Doctoral Researcher at Yonsei University from 2014 to 2016, and The University of Hong Kong (HKU) from 2016 to 2019. His research interests focus on intelligent wireless communications and networking for B5G&6G, with special emphasis on edge intelligence, integrated sensing-and-communications, and localization.
