Serge FDIDA received his PhD in 1984 and Habilitation a Diriger des Recherches in 1989 both from the University Pierre & Marie Curie (UPMC). His research interests are related to the Internet technology and protocols, with an emphasis on innovative wireless networks, large-scale content distribution systems as well as the design of federated test-beds to support experimentally driven research. From 1991 to 1995, he was a Full Professor at the University Rene Descartes (Paris). He was a Visiting Scientist at IBM Research (North Carolina) during the 1994/95 academic year and then joined the University Pierre & Marie Curie in 1995. He is/was leading or involved in many research projects in High Performance Networking in France and Europe, and was/is the coordinator of WIP (IST FP6 - An All Wireless Mobile Network Architecture), ONELAB, ONELAB2 and OPENLAB (IST FP6&7 - An Open Laboratory Supporting Network Research Across Heterogeneous Environments). Currently, he is also leading the Equipex FIT, a large-scale testbed on the Future Internet of Things. Serge Fdida has developed strong international cooperation’s. He was chairing the COST264 Action on Internet Architecture in Europe (98-02), and was on the steering committee of the European FP6 network of Excellence ENEXT. Serge Fdida is a senior member of IEEE and a Distinguished ACM Member. He has also developed an experience related to innovation and industry transfer. He was the Director of EURONETLAB, a joint laboratory (2001-2007), between University Paris 6, CNRS, THALES, ENST and BLUWAN, developing collaborative research on the wireless internet. He is also a co-founder of the Qosmos company. 

He has a long experience associated to Education as he created and was in charge of the DEA “Reseaux” at UPMC (1999-2006), one of the first in this area in France. He was also the head of the Magistère d’Informatique d’Ile de France (1995-2002) and the Program related to “Networks and Systems Managers”. Serge Fdida has supervised more than 50 PhDs.

Serge Fdida has also a long experience of research management, as he as in charge of the recruiting committee in Computer Science at UPMC for 8 years and Associate Director of the department of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University Paris 5 (1993-1994). From 2000 to December 2005, he was appointed scientific adviser with CNRS-STIC (French National Scientific Research Center / Information Science & Technology). In addition, he was also the Vice-President of the RNRT (French national Research Network in Telecommunications), involving the industrial, academic and government actors in France. He has been Vice-President in charge of International Affairs at UPMC from 9/2011 to 12/2011 and is now VP in charge or Europe. Serge Fdida holds the “Palmes Académiques” Award.
