    Prof. Theo Kanter, Stockholm University, Sweden

    Theo’s research interests concern methods for sharing and utilizing context from sensor and user information in heterogeneous networks to enable adaptive & context‐aware mobile services.

    During his career, Theo has held a number of leading positions in telecommunications research, earlier at Ellemtel AB, Sweden (1996‐1999), where he led research in agent‐based service architectures for context‐aware voice services on the Internet. Between 1999 and 2007, Theo was a senior scientist at Ericsson Research in the area of Service Layer Technologies focusing on Adaptive Mobile Services and Mobile Presence. In September 2007, Theo was appointed full Professor of Computer Science in the area of Distributed Systems within the Department of Information Technology and Media at the Mid Sweden University. In this position, he was the driving force of a new research group focused on Sensor‐Based Services and co‐leader of the Sensible Things that Think (STC) center at the Mid Sweden University. As a member of the Acreo National (fiber‐optic) Testbed he established a platform for supporting and creating applications that utilize ad‐hoc Context Networks via heterogeneous networks, and selected in several IoT & Cloud related testbeds in EU projects. As of 2012, he was appointed Unit Director within DSV and successfully applied to the position of Senior Lecturer. Theo was promoted to Professor of Computer Science at SU in January 2013. His research activities and research group are organized within the Immersive Participation research area initiated by Theo and in international research networks pivotal to the formation of new FP7 projects, building upon the strengths of national and international collaboration.

    Kanter is an associate editor of IEEE Computer Communications magazine, and technical committee member / (co‐)organizer of many well‐known international conferences on wireless & mobile computing and applications, such as: IEEE Conference on Mobile and Wireless Communications Networks (MWCN), International Symposium on Wearable Computers (ISWC), IEEE Workshop on Local and Metropolitan Area Networks (LANMAN), and IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC). Research interests Methods for sharing and utilizing context from sensor and user information in heterogeneous networks to enable adaptive & context‐aware mobile services.
