Prof. Sergei Gorlatch
University of Muenster, Germany
Biodata: Dr. Sergei Gorlatch has been Full
Professor of Computer Science at the University of
Muenster (Germany) since 2003. Earlier he was
Associate Professor at the Technical University of
Berlin, Assistant Professor at the University of
Passau, and Humboldt Research Fellow at the
Technical University of Munich, all in Germany.
Prof. Gorlatch has about 200 peer-reviewed
publications in renowned international books,

and computing, as well as e-Learning, funded by the
European Commission and by German national bodies.
Among his recent achievements in the area of
communications and future Internet is the novel
Real-Time Framework (www.real-time-framework.com)
developed in his group as a platform for high-level
development of real-time, highly interactive
applications for entertainment. In the area of
networking, his group has been recently working in
the pan-European project OFERTIE on an
application-oriented Quality of Service approach for
emerging Software-Defined Networks (SDN).
Prof. Ratchatin Chanchareon
Chulalongkorn University, Thailand
Biodata: Dr. Ratchatin Chancharoen is currently an Associate Professor at the Mechanical Engineering Department, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand. He received his BS degree in mechanical engineering from Chulalongkorn University in 1991, MS degree in mechanical engineering from Oregon State University in 1994, and PhD degree in mechanical engineering from Chulalongkorn University in 2000. Dr. Ratchatin Chancharoen has twenty years experience in robotics research including both manipulators and mobile robots and ten years in teaching both Robotics and Mechatronics at the university level. During these years, he has designed and built more than twenty robots in various configurations and published more than 20 research papers and one text book entitled "Linear Control Systems" (in Thai). He is principal investigator and co-investigator of several research grants in robotics and also the manager of a number of industrial projects in design and control. His current research activities involve 3D printing based on syringe pump, auger pump, and gear pump for gel like materials. He also developed a novel drive mechanism for collaborative robot such that force, compliance, and position can be controlled in one axis. His main research interests are in the field of Robotics, Mechatronics, and Cyber Physical System including new hardware processor, electronics, control algorithm, and intelligence.
