Biography: Dr. Hiroshi Harada 
Dr. Hiroshi Harada is the director of smart wireless laboratory at National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT). He joined the Communications Research Laboratory, Ministry of Posts and Communications, in 1995  (currently NICT). Since 1995, he has conducted research on Software Defined Radio (SDR), Cognitive Radio, Dynamic Spectrum Access Network, Smart Utility Network (SUN) and broadband wireless access systems in the VHF, TV white space, micro-wave and millimeter-wave bands. He has joined many standardization committees and forums in the United States as well as in Japan  and has fulfilled important roles for them. He is currently serving in the board of directors of Wireless Innovation Forum (formerly SDR Forum). He is the chair of IEEE DySPAN Standards Committee (formerly, IEEE SCC41 and IEEE 1900) since 2009, the vice chair of IEEE P1900.4, IEEE P802.15.4g, and TIA TR-51 since 2008, 2009, and 2011, respectively. He was the chair of the IEICE Technical Committee on Software Radio (TCSR) in 2005-2007 and the chair of Public Broadband Mobile Communication Development Committee, ARIB since 2010. He is also involved in many other activities related to telecommunications. He has been a visiting professor at the University of Electro-Communications, Tokyo, Japan, since 2005 and is the author of Simulation and Software Radio for Mobile Communications (Artech House, 2002). He has received the achievement award and fellow of IEICE in 2006 and 2009, respectively and the achievement award of ARIB and Funai Prize for Science in 2009 and 2010, respectively, on the topic of cognitive radio research and development.  
Biography: Dr. Chin-Sean Sum 
Dr. Chin-Sean Sum received his Ph.D. degree from Niigata University in 2007. He was then affiliated with the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT), Japan as an expert researcher in the Smart Wireless Laboratory (SWL). He has been involved in multiple standardization activities as a project officer and an active technical contributor. In the IEEE 802.15.3c millimeter-wave wireless personal area networks (WPAN) standard, he served as the assistant technical editor and secretary of the  task  group.  He  is  the  recipient  of  the  IEEE Working Group Chairs Awards for the IEEE 802.15.3c Standard. He then started to participate in 
task groups IEEE 802.15.4g Smart Utility Networks (SUN) WPAN and IEEE 802.11af white space wireless local area networks (WLAN). In 802.15.4g, he is an active technical contributor and served as the editor of the coexistence assurance document. In 802.11af, he is an active technical contributor closely following the development of TV white space WLAN systems and related regulatory status. Currently, he is also actively involved in a new initiative group working on WPAN operating in TW white space, a group expected to be formed as IEEE 802.15.4m. Besides, he is an active contributor in other standardization  groups such as Telecommunication Industry Association (TIA) TR-51 Smart Utility Networks, IEEE 802.19 Wireless Coexistence group and 802.22 wireless regional area networks (WRAN) group. His research works can be frequently found in major journals and conferences such as the IEEE J-SAC, ICC, WCNC, Globecom, DySPAN, VTC, IEEE Communications Magazine and so on. Currently, his research interest is focused on 
MAC and PHY layer designs for TV white space and SUN systems, cognitive radio, coexistence and energy efficient mechanisms.
