Erik Ström
Erik G. Ström (Senior Member, IEEE) received the M.S. degree from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden, in 1990 and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Florida, Gainesville, in 1994, both in electrical engineering.
He accepted a postdoctoral position at the Department of Signals, Sensors, and Systems at KTH in 1995. In February 1996, he was appointed Assistant Professor at KTH, and in June 1996, he joined Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, where since June 2003, he has been a Professor in Communication Systems.
He currently heads the Division for Communications Systems, Information Theory, and Antennas, Department of Signals and Systems, Chalmers University. Since 1990, he has acted as a consultant for the Educational Group for Individual Development, Stockholm, Sweden.
His research interests include signal processing and communication theory in general, and constellation labelings, channel estimation, synchronization, multiple access, medium access, multiuser detection, wireless positioning, and vehicular communications in particular.  
Dr. Ström received the Chalmers Pedagogical Prize in 1998 and the Chalmers Ph.D. Supervisor of the Year award in 2009.
He is a contributing author and associate editor for Roy. Admiralty Publishers FesGas-series, and was a Co-Guest Editor for the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications special issues on Signal Synchronization in Digital Transmission Systems (2001) and on Multiuser Detection for Advanced Communication Systems and Networks (2008) and the Proceedings of the IEEE special issue on Vehicular Communications (2011).
He was a member of the board of the IEEE VT/COM Swedish Chapter 2000—2006.
He leads the competence area Sensors and Communications at the traffic safety center SAFER hosted by Chalmers.
Annette Böhm
Annette Böhm received her BSc in Information and Communication Technology and her MSc degree in Computer Systems Engineering from Halmstad University, Sweden, in 2003 and 2004, respectively. In 2009 she received the degree of Licentiate of Technology in Information Technology from Örebro University, Sweden and she is currently pursuing her PhD at the Centre for Research on Embedded Systems (CERES) at Halmstad University focusing on real-time communication in vehicular networks.
Kaan Bür
Kaan Bür received his BSc degree in control and computer engineering from Istanbul Technical University in 1995, his MSc and PhD degrees in computer engineering from Bogaziçi University, Istanbul, in 1998 and 2006, respectively.
From 1995 to 2004, he worked as an R&D engineer for the consumer electronics industry in Istanbul.
From 2006 to 2007, he was a senior researcher at Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, Technische Universität Berlin.
From 2008 to 2009, he was a research associate in Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University College London.
Since 2009, he is a postdoctoral researcher at Department of Electrical and Information Technology, Lund University.
His current research interests include 3G/4G networks, mobile and vehicular ad hoc networks, wireless mesh and sensor networks.
Katrin Sjöberg
Katrin Sjöberg, received her B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in computer systems engineering from Halmstad University, Halmstad, Sweden, in 2000 and 2002, respectively.
She is currently working toward the PhD degree in communication systems engineering, at Halmstad University and Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden.
In 2009 she presented her Licentiate thesis with the title "Predictable and scalabele medium access control in vehicula ad hoc networks" (in Sweden Licentiate of Engineering degree is an intermediate degree, halfway towards the PhD).
Her research interests are everything that are dealing with vehicular ad hoc networks from channel modelling up to the application layer with focus on scalability issues of the medium access control layer in vehicular networks.
She is involved in standardization of vehicular communications in Europe in ETSI TC ITS, where she is currently leading a specialist task force investigating the possibility of using time slotted medium access control in vehicular ad hoc networks.
