Tommy Svensson [S’98, M’03, SM’10] is Full Professor in Communication Systems at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, where he is leading the Wireless Systems research on air interface and wireless backhaul networking technologies for future wireless systems. He received a Ph.D. in Information theory from Chalmers in 2003, and he has worked at Ericsson AB with core networks, radio access networks, and microwave transmission products. He was involved in the European WINNER and ARTIST4G projects that made important contributions to the 3GPP LTE standards, the EU FP7 METIS and the EU H2020 5GPPP mmMAGIC and 5GCar projects towards 5G and currently the Hexa-X, Hexa-X-II, RISE-6G and SEMANTIC projects towards 6G, as well as in the ChaseOn/Bridge Center antenna systems excellence center at Chalmers targeting mm-wave and (sub)-THz solutions for 5G/6G access, backhaul/ fronthaul and V2X scenarios. His research interests include design and analysis of physical layer algorithms, multiple access, resource allocation, cooperative systems, moving networks, and satellite networks for communications and integrated sensing, actively contributing also to end-to-end architecture and sustainability aspects. He has co-authored 5 books, 106 journal papers, 139 conference papers and 67 public EU projects deliverables. He is founding editorial board member and editor of IEEE JSAC Series on Machine Learning in Communications and Networks, has been Chairman of the awards winning IEEE Sweden joint Vehicular Technology/ Communications/ Information Theory Societies chapter, editor of IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Wireless Communications Letters, Guest editor of several top journals, organized several tutorials and workshops at top IEEE conferences, and served as coordinator of the Communication Engineering Master’s Program at Chalmers.
