BYUNG-SEO KIM (M’02-SM’17) received his B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from In-Ha University, In-Chon, Korea in 1998 and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Florida in 2001 and 2004, respectively. His Ph.D. study was supervised by Dr. Yuguang Fang. Between 1997 and 1999, he worked for Motorola Korea Ltd., PaJu, Korea as a Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) Engineer in Advanced Technology Research and Development (ATR&D).

From January 2005 to August 2007, he worked for Motorola Inc., Schaumburg Illinois, as a Senior Software Engineer in Networks and Enterprises. His research focuses in Motorola Inc. were designing protocol and network architecture of wireless broadband mission critical communications. From 2012 to 2014, he was the Chairman with the Department of Software and Communications Engineering, Hongik University, South Korea, where he is currently a Professor. He served as the General Chair for General Chair of 3rd IWWCN 2017, and the TPC member for the IEEE VTC 2014-Spring and the EAI FUTURE2016, and ICGHIC 2016 2019 conferences. He served as Guest Editors of special issues of International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks (SAGE), IEEE Access, and Journal of the Institute of Electrics and Information Engineers. He was also served as the Member of Sejong-city Construction Review Committee and Ansan-city Design Advisory Board. His work has appeared in around 167 publications and 22 patents. He is IEEE Senior Member and Associative Editor of IEEE Access. His research interests include the design and development of efficient wireless/wired networks including linkadaptable/ cross-layer-based protocols, multi-protocol structures, wireless CCNs/NDNs, Mobile Edge Computing, physical layer design for broadband PLC, and resource allocation algorithms for wireless networks
