Gelonch Bosch, Antoni

Antoni Gelonch received the M.S. and PhD degree in Telecommunication Engineering from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Spain, in 1991 and 1997 respectively. In 1992 he joined UPC and became associate professor in 1997. His main activities have been focused on the analysis and development of digital mobile radio systems and his research interest includes cellular and personal communication system, multipath transceiver design, software radio techniques, real-time acquisition techniques (AD/DA) and data processing using different types of processors, DSPs, GPUs and FPGAs, multiprocessing techniques and development of software layers and middlewares for supporting SDR processing in multiprocessor platforms.

He has participated in several research projects funded by both public and private organizations. Some of the most relevant EU-funded projects are CODIT (RACE II program), RAINBOW (ACTS), WINEGLASS (FP5), EVEREST (FP6), E2RII (FP7) and NEWCOM++. Last years, his research has been concentrated on the design and development of an SDR middleware ( and, that include computing resources management to meet the real-time and latency constraints of modern communication systems, and the implementation of open source LTE processing chain. Recently his research addresses the particularities of implementing the Cloud-RAN concept and analyzing the new challenges of developing 5G under such assumption.

Gilabert Pinal, Pere Lluis

Pere L. Gilabert received the M.Sc. degree in telecommunication engineering from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, Spain, in 2002, and developed his Master thesis at the University of Rome “La Sapienza” with an Erasmus exchange grant and the Ph.D. degree awarded with the Extraordinary Doctoral Prize, from the UPC in 2008. He joined the Department of Signal Theory and Communications (TSC) in 2003. He is an Associate Professor at the Castelldefels School of Telecommunications and Aerospace Engineering (EETAC- UPC).
