|Prof. Alfred HERO|
|University of Michigan|
Alfred O. Hero III received the B.S. (summa cum laude) from Boston University (1980) and the Ph.D from Princeton University (1984), both in Electrical Engineering. Since 1984 he has been with the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where he is a Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and, by courtesy, in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Department of Statistics. His recent research interests have been in areas including: inference for sensor networks, adaptive sensing, bioinformatics, inverse problems. and statistical signal and image processing.
Prof. Hero will also be giving a half-day tutorial on "Signal Processing as Enabler for Wide Area Distributed Network Applications" on Dec 10, 2007 during the ICICS 2007 conference. Details on this will be made available on the conference web pages and will also be provided with the registration package.

|Dr. Radia PERLMAN|
|Sun Microsystems, Inc.|
Radia Perlman's work has been of seminal importance in the design and development of computer networks and the Internet as we know it today. She designed the Spanning Tree algorithm used by bridges and invented many of the basic algorithms that make today's network infrastructure robust and scalable. She has also made significant contributions in the areas of routing security, secure digital shredding of data, strong password protocols, transparent routing, scalable PKI-based cross-organizational authentication and authorization and the analysis and redesign of IKE (the authentication handshake for IPsec). She has also been a popular public speaker who has been very active in demystifying the operation of networks and getting people to think about network technology in new and novel ways.
Dr. Radia Perlman will also be giving a full-day tutorial on Network Security on Dec 10, 2007 during the ICICS 2007 conference. Details on this will be made available on the conference web pages and will also be provided with the registration package.
