Hrishikesh Venkataraman, PhD, is a senior researcher and Enterprise Ireland (EI) principal investigator with Performance Engineering Laboratory at the Irish national research center-The RINCE Institute, at Dublin City University (DCU), Ireland. He obtained his PhD from Jacobs University Bremen, Germany, in 2007, for his research on wireless cellular networks. He obtained his master's degree from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Kanpur, India, in 2004, and did his master's thesis from Vodafone Chair for Mobile Communications, Technical University Dresden, Germany, in 2003-2004 under the Indo-German DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst) Fellowship. His research interests include mobile multimedia, wireless communications, and energy in wireless. Dr. Venkataraman has published more than 30 papers in journals, international conferences, and book chapters, and has won a Best Paper Award at an international conference at the University of Berkeley, California, in October 2009. Currently, Dr. Venkataraman is an executive editor of European Transactions on Telecommunications (ETT) and is a founding member of the UKRI (United Kingdom/Republic of Ireland) chapter of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Vehicular Technology Society.

Gabriel-Miro Muntean, PhD, has established a strong track record in the areas of quality-oriented and performance-aware adaptive multimedia streaming and data communications in heterogeneous wireless environments. Dr. Muntean has been the co-director of a 10-person research laboratory since 2003, which is a state-of-the-art facility at the Dublin City University (DCU) Engineering building and well equipped for multimedia delivery research. He has successfully supervised three PhD and three masters for research students, and is currently supervising seven postgraduate researchers and one postdoctoral researcher. Dr. Muntean has received mo
