Keynote Speakers


Prof. Antonio De Maio, IEEE Fellow, University of Naples Federico II, Italy

Antonio De Maio (S'01-A'02-M'03-SM'07-F'13) was born in Sorrento, Italy, on June 20, 1974. He received the Dr.Eng. degree (with honors) and the Ph.D. degree in information engineering, both from the University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy, in 1998 and 2002, respectively. Currently, he is a Professor with the University of Naples Federico II. His research interest lies in the field of statistical signal processing, with emphasis on radar detection and optimization theory applied to radar signal processing. Dr. De Maio is a Fellow member of IEEE and the recipient of the 2010 IEEE Fred Nathanson Memorial Award as the young (less than 40 years of age) AESS Radar Engineer 2010 whose performance is particularly noteworthy as evidenced by contributions to the radar art over a period of several years, with the following citation for "robust CFAR detection, knowledge-based radar signal processing, and waveform design and diversity".


Prof. George Z.H. Zhu, FASME, SMIEEE, York University, Canada

Zheng Hong (George) Zhu is the Director of the Space Engineering Design Laboratory at the Lassonde School of Engineering, Department of Mechanical Engineering. His research interests touch on a number of topics including the dynamics and control of tethered spacecraft systems, electrodynamic tether propulsion and space debris removal, space robotics and advanced spacecraft materials.

Dr. Zhu is the Fellow of Canadian Academy of Canada, Engineering Institute of Canada, Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME), and American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). He is also the Associate Fellow of American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), College Member of Royal Society of Canada, and Academician of International Academy of Astronautics.
