Antonio's Bio and Services

Short Bio

Antonio Capone is a Full Professor at the Information and Communication Technology Department (Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione) of the Technical University of Milan (Politecnico di Milano), where he is the director of the Advanced Network Technologies Laboratory (ANTLab). Dr. Capone is co-founder and CTO of MobiMESH, a spin-off company of Politecnico di Milano. His expertise is on networking and his main research activities include protocol design (MAC and routing) and performance evaluation of wireless access and multi-hop networks, traffic management and quality of service issues in IP networks, and network planning and optimization. On these topics he has published more than 200 peer-reviewed papers in international journal and conference proceedings.

He received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Politecnico di Milano in 1994 and 1998, respectively. In 2000 he was visiting professor at UCLA, Computer Science department. He currently serves as editor of IEEE Trans. on Mobile Computing, and Computer Communications (Elsevier), and served as editor of the ACM/IEEE Trans. on Networking from 2010 to 2014, Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing (Wiley) from 2005 to 2015, Computer Networks (Elsevier) from 2006 to 2016. He was guest editor of a few journal special issues (IEEE JSAC, IEEE Wireless CommMag, Computer Networks, Ad Hoc Networks, ...) and served in the technical program committee of major international conferences (including Mobicom, INFOCOM, SECON, MASS, Globecom, ICC, LCN, Networking, WoWMoM), as Technical Program Chair of Ifip MEDHOCNET 2006, Poster&Demo co-chair of SECON 2009, Workshop chair of INFOCOM 2010, publicity chair of MOBIQUITOUS 2007, general co-chair of WONS 2011, area chair of INFOCOM 2012-2014-2015, TPC co-chair INFOCOM 2013.

He is currently involved in the scientific and technical activities of several national and European research projects, and he leads several industrial projects. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE.
