Dr. Carlos Senna, researcher at Instituto de Telecomunicações (IT) in Aveiro, Portugal, received the Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from the University of Campinas, Brazil in 2014. He is working in research related to ad-hoc and vehicular networking mechanisms and protocols, resource management, orchestration, and distributed AI for cloud/fog/edge based solutions. Over the last years he was involved in several research projects (Horizon Project: A New Horizon to The Internet, Support for Orchestration of Resilient and Reliable Services In the Fog (SORTS), and Europe - Brazil Collaboration of Big Data Scientific Research Through Cloud-Centric Applications (EUBRA BIGSEA)), S2MovingCity: Sensing and Serving a Moving City, P2020 SAICT- PAC/0011/2015, MobiWise: from Mobile Sensing to Mobility Advising, and 5G Mobilizer project "Components and services for 5G networks”. Currently, he is involved in projects such as, Efficient Information Centric Networks for IoT Infrastructure (InfoCent-IoT), SNOB5G, MH-SDVANET, and Aveiro STEAM City.
