Dr. Ping Wang is an Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, York University, and a Tier 2 York Research Chair. Prior to that, she worked with Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, from 2008 to 2018. Her research interests are mainly in the area of wireless communication networks, cloud computing and Internet of Things with the recent focus on integrating Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques into communications networks. She has published more than 250 papers/conference proceedings papers. Her scholarly works have been widely disseminated through top-ranked IEEE journals/conferences and received the Best Paper Awards from IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC) in 2022, 2020 and 2012, from IEEE Communication Society: Green Communications & Computing Technical Committee in 2018, and from IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) in 2007. Her work received 21,000+ citations with H-index 70 (Google Scholar). She is an IEEE Fellow and a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society.

Hina Tabassum is an Assistant Professor at the Lassonde School of Engineering, York University, Canada. Prior to that, she was a PDF at the Department of ECE, University of Manitoba, Canada. She received her PhD degree from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in 2013. She is a Senior member of IEEE and a P.ENG in the province of Ontario. She has published over 70 technical articles in well-reputed IEEE journals and conferences. She is the founding chair of a special interest group on THz communications in IEEE ComSoc: Radio Communications Committee (RCC). She has been recognized as an Exemplary Editor by IEEE Communications Letters, 2020, and an Exemplary Reviewer (Top 2% of all reviewers) by IEEE Transactions on Communications in 2015-2017, 2019, and 2020. Currently, she is serving as an Associate Editor in IEEE Communications Letters, IEEE Transactions on Green Communications, IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials, and IEEE Open Journal of Communications Society. Her research interests include stochastic modeling, analysis, and optimization of energy efficient multi-band 5G/6G wireless networks jointly operating on sub-6GHz, millimeter, and Terahertz frequencies with applications to vehicular, aerial, and satellite networks.
