Simao Campos, ITU

Simão Ferraz de Campos Neto joined the secretariat of the ITU Standardization Sector in 2002, and is the Counsellor for ITU-T Study Group 16 (for standardization work on multimedia services, protocols, systems, terminals and media coding, including accessibility). He organized several workshops (e.g. Multimedia in NGN, Telecoms for Disaster Relief, RFID, Standardization in E-health; SIIT2005) and was the editor of the first version of the ITU-T Security Manual.

Prior to joining ITU in 2002, Mr Campos worked for 8 years as a scientist in COMSAT Laboratories performing standards representation and quality assessment for digital voice coding systems, and before that he was a researcher at Telebras's R&D Center (CPqD).

A Senior Member of the IEEE, Mr Campos authored several academic papers and position papers, served in the review committee of several IEEE-sponsored conferences, and organized the first ITU-T Kaleidoscope Conference.

Paolo Rosa, Head of Workshops and Promotion Division, (ITU/TSB)

Mr Rosa received his degree in physics in 1974 in Rome, Italy, and joined the R&D branch of the Italian Ministry of Communication working on optical fibers transmission networks, in national and international standards and leading quality control inspection teams for international telecommunication projects.

He was head of national delegations for standardization and research studies performed in IEC, ITU, ETSI, CECC, COST and represented the Italian Ministry of Communications in various international institutions including the European Commission task force for the G7 pilot projects on the Information Society.

Paolo was appointed as expert and senior advisor by the Italian Foreign Office, the UNDP and ITU for telecommunication projects in various developing countries worldwide.

In 1997 he joined the ITU-T secretariat in Geneva as Counselor responsible for Study Groups 6 (Outside plant), and SG 15 (Optical and other transport networks) and representing ITU in various events. Since November 2004 he is the Head of the Workshops and Promotion Division of the ITU Standardization Sector, organizing events and promoting new ITU-T activities for resolutions concerning developing countries, conformance and interoperability, universities.

He is author of several papers published in international technical magazines and speaker and lecturer in universities, international conferences, seminars and workshops.

Daniele Trinchero, iXEM Labs - DELEN, Politecnico di Torino, Italy

Daniele Trinchero was born in Torino, Italy, in 1968. He obtained the Laurea Degree in Electronic Engineering in 1993, and the pHd degree in Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering in 1997 from Politecnico di Torino. Before 1997 he worked for Politecnico di Torino, IRITI (now IEIIT), an Institute of the Italian National Council of Research (CNR), the Loughborough University (UK). Starting from December 1997 he has been working for the Electronics Department of Politecnico di Torino, Italy, where in Semptember 2005 he founded the iXem Labs, and since then he has been the labs responsible. He is also associate to the Institute of Electronics and Information and Telecommunication Engineering (IEIIT) of the CNR. At Politecnico di Torino he teaches courses on basic electromagnetic theory, radio planning, electromagnetic compatibility, and electromagnetic field measurements.

His research interests are in the following fields: Wireless Sensor Networks, Geographical Wireless Networks, Long Distance Communications, Antennas, Electromagnetic Field Propagation, Electromagnetic Field Measurements, Electromagnetic Compatibility, Microwave Devices, Frequency Selective Surfaces, Shielding Devices, Wireless Solutions for Digital Inclusion of Developing Regions.
He is maintaining important research collaborations with several Italian, European and Extra-European Universities, Telecommunication Research Centres, many industrial enterprises, and non-profit organizations. The group of Daniele Trinchero has developed new very-low-cost wireless transmitters able to carry large bandwidths over huge distances (up to 300 km). Recently, Daniele Trinchero has proposed a revolutionary idea to identify leakages in pipes used for water distribution. In the recent past, Daniele Trinchero has developed theoretical methods for the assessment of the human exposure in the vicinity of radio base stations. Those methods are referenced in the main International Standards.

Dr. Trinchero is Academic member of the Subcommittee 106B of the Italian Electrotechnical Committee (CEI). Since 2005 he has been Convenor of the Italian working group on wideband digital measurements. He is member of the IEC TC 106, IEEE TC 34, Cenelec TC 106, Cost BM 0704 working groups. He is serving as a reviewer for several international publications. In 2008 he was assigned an Award by the InterAmerican Development Bank for the construction of a Telemedicine and distance learning wireless network in Eastern Ecuador. In 2009 together with a research group of the University of Qatar, he was granted by the Qatar National Research Fund for studies devoted to the reduction of water losses in water
distribution networks.
