  Short CV

Peter Rost (S'06-M'10-SM'15) received his Ph.D. degree from Technische Universität Dresden, Dresden, Germany, in 2009 under supervision of Prof. G. Fettweis, and his M.Sc. degree from University of Stuttgart, Stuttgart, Germany, in 2005. Peter has been with Fraunhofer Institute for Beam and Material Technologies, Dresden, Germany; IBM Deutschland Entwicklung GmbH, Böblingen, Germany; and NEC Laboratories Europe, Heidelberg, Germany.

Since May 2015, Peter is member of the Radio Systems research group at Nokia Networks, Munich, Germany, where he coordinates the European H2020 project 5G-NORMA (https://5gnorma.5g-ppp.eu/), and works in business unit projects on 5G Architecture as well as Industry 4.0. Peter has been involved in several EU projects (e.g. FP7 iJOIN as Technical Manager), and standardization (e.g. 3GPP RAN2).

Currently, Peter serves as member of IEEE ComSoc GITC, IEEE Online GreenComm Steering Committee, and VDE ITG Expert Committee Information and System Theory. He is an Executive Editor of IEEE Transactions of Wireless Communications. Peter further supported several conferences, e.g. IEEE ICC 2009 and IEEE VTC Spring 2013 (TPC Chair). Peter published more than 40 scientific publications and he is author of multiple patents and patent applications.
