Michael S. Malone is an award-winning journalist who has reported on Silicon Valley since the early 1980s. He has written 15 books, including The Microprocessor: A Biography. Currently, he is an adjunct professor at Santa Clara University, an associate fellow at Said Business School and a blogger at Forbes.com.
Ozgur Oyman is a research scientist in the Corporate Technology Group at Intel Corporation in Santa Clara, CA and is currently serving as a principal investigator for the Intelligent Wireless Project at Intel Research. He holds M.S. (2002) and Ph.D. (2005) degrees from Stanford University and a B.S. (2000) degree from Cornell University. At Stanford, he was a member of the Smart Antennas Research Group within the Information Systems Laboratory. He was a visiting researcher at the Communication Theory Group within the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich) in 2003. His prior industry experience includes work at Qualcomm (2001), Beceem Communications (2004) and Intel (2005).
Dr. Oymanâ€™s research interests are in the applications of communication and information theory to wireless communications, with special emphasis on cross-layer (PHY/MAC) design and system-level optimization of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antenna systems, multihop/mesh/adhoc communication architectures and dense cognitive/cooperative networks. He was the recipient of Best Paper Awards from the 2007 IEEE Global Telecommunications Conference (GLOBECOM), the 2008 Cognitive Radio Oriented Wireless Networks and Communications Conference (CROWNCOM) and the 2008 IEEE International Symposium on Spread Spectrum Techniques and Applications (ISSSTA). He was also the recipient of Intel Corporate Technology Groupâ€™s Divisional Recognition Award for his contributions to research and standardization of multihop relaying techniques for next-generation WiMAX systems. He served on the organizing committees of WCNC 2009 (TPC co-chair for NET track) and CROWNCOM 2009 (publicity chair). In 2006, he served as the treasurer for the Santa Clara Valley Chapter of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. He is a member of Tau Beta Pi, Eta Kappa Nu and the IEEE.
Mario Paniccia is an Intel Fellow and Director of the Photonic Technology Lab at Intel Corporation. Mario currently directs a research group focused in the area of Silicon Photonics. The team is developing silicon- based photonic building blocks for future use in enterprise and data center communications. Mario has worked in many areas of optical technologies during his career at Intel including optical testing for leading edge microprocessors, optical communications and optical interconnects.
His teams pioneering activities in silicon photonics have led to many firsts such as the first silicon modulator with bandwidth >1GHz (2004) and then the first at 40Gb/s (2007). The first continuous wave Raman silicon laser breakthrough (2005) and together with UCSB, the world’s first "Hybrid Silicon Laser" (2006).
Mario has won numerous awards including in November 2004 Mario being awarded by Scientific American to be one of the top 50 researchers for his teams work in the area of silicon photonics. In October 2008, Dr. Paniccia was named by R&D Magazine as "Scientist of the year" for his teams pioneering research in the area of Silicon Photonics. In 2011 he was awarded "innovator of the year" by EE times ACE award for his teams pioneering efforts in demonstrating the world’s first 50G integrated Silicon photonics link.
He has published numerous papers; including 3 Nature papers, 3 book chapters, and has over 65 patents issued or pending. He is a fellow of IEEE, OSA and SPIE.
Mario earned a B.S. degree in Physics in 1988 from the State University of New York at Binghamton and a Ph.D. degree in Solid State Physics from Purdue University in 1994.
