Davide Dardari

Davide Dardari (M’95 – SM’07) received the Laurea degree in electronic engineering (summa cum laude) and the PhD degree in electronic engineering and computer science from the University of Bologna, Italy, in 1993 and 1998, respectively.

He is an Associate Professor at the University of Bologna at Cesena, Italy, where he participates with WiLAB (Wireless Communications Laboratory). Since 2005, he has been a Research Affiliate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, USA. He is also Research Affiliate at IEIIT/CNR (National Research Council) and CNIT (Consorzio Nazionale Interuniversitario per le Telecomunicazioni).

He published more than 180 technical papers and played several important roles in various National and European Projects. He is co-author of the books “Wireless Sensor and Actuator Networks: enabling technologies, information processing and protocol design”, Elsevier, 2008 and “Satellite and Terrestrial Radio Positioning Techniques - A signal processing perspective”, Elsevier 2011. His interests are on wireless communications, localization techniques, and distributed signal processing.

He received the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society’s M. Barry Carlton Award (2011) and the IEEE Communications Society Fred W. Ellersick Prize (2012).

Prof. Dardari is Senior Member of the IEEE where he was the Chair for the Radio Communications Committee of the IEEE Communication Society. He was co-General Chair of the 2011 IEEE International Conference on Ultra-Wideband and co-organizer of the IEEE International Workshop on Advances in Network Localization and Navigation (ANLN) - ICC 2013-2016 editions. He was also TPC co-Chair of the Wireless Communications Symposium of the 2007/2017 IEEE International Conference on Communications, TPC chair of PIMRC 2018, and TPC co-Chair of the 2006 IEEE International Conference on Ultra-Wideband. He served as Guest Editor for several and as an Editor for IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications from 2006 to 2012.
