Prior to joining the University of Karlsruhe, he was a senior research staff member with NEC Europe. He was NEC's project leader (2001-03) for the 'FleetNet - Internet on the Road' project partly funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), and involved in the 'NOW: Network on Wheels' project (2004-08), also funded by BMBF. He is currently actively participating in the EU FP7 project PRE-DRIVE-C2X. He was General Co-Chair of the ACM International Workshop on Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks (VANET) in 2005, technical co-chair of ACM VANET in 2006, technical co-chair of the IEEE chair of the IFIP/IEEE Conference on Wireless On-Demand Network Systems and Services (WONS) in 2008. He is a member of he scientific directorate of the center for Informatics, Schloss Dagstuhl. His research interests include mobile networks, virtual networks, and IT management. he holds a diploma in mathematics and a doctoral degree in computer science, both from Albert-Ludwigs-Universitat, Freiburg, Germany.

Kenneth P Laberteaux is a senior principal research engineer for the Toyota Technical Center in Ann Arbor, MI. His research focus is information-rich vehicular safety systems, focusing on architecture, security, and protocol design for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-roadside wireless communication. He was a founder and two-year (2004-05) general co-chair of the highly selective, international Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANET) workshop. He serves as the architect and technical lead for communications research within a multi-year, multi-million dollar Vehicle Safety Communications-Applications collaboration project between the US government and several automotive companies. he completed his MSc (1996) and PhD (2000) degrees in electrical engineering at the University of Notre Dame, Focusing on adaptive control for communications. In 1992, he received his BSE (summa cum laude) in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
