Adam T. Drobot, OpenTechWorks Inc., Wayne, PA USA

Adam T. DrobotAdam is the Chairman of the Board of OpenTechWorks, Inc. He serves on the Boards of multiple early-stage companies. His activities are strategic consulting, start-ups, non-profits, and industry associations. In the past he was the President of Applied Research at Telcordia Technologies (Bellcore) and the company’s CTO, and before that the Senior Vice President for Science and Technology at SAIC/LEIDOS.

Adam is a current member of the FCC Technological Advisory Council where he Co-Chairs the Working Group on Artificial Intelligence; the University of Texas Physics Department Advisory Council; and Chairman of FAMES USA a non-profit that organizes programs to attract disadvantaged youths to careers in STEM fields.  In the past, he was on the Boards of the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) where he Chaired the Technology Committee;  the Association for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS); the New Jersey Technology Council; the US DoT ITS Program Advisory Committee, and the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute External Advisory Board.

Over the years he has been active in IEEE and served as the Chair of, multiple Committees including the IEEE IoT Activities Board, and multiple major conferences such as the IEEE World Forum on IoT. He is currently a member of the IEEE Press Editorial Board.  He has published over 150 journal articles and holds 27 patents. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society. His degrees include a BA in Engineering Physics from Cornell University and a PhD. in Plasma Physics from the University of Texas.

Mark A. Gouker, Advanced Technology, MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Cambridge, MA USA

Mark A. GoukerDr. Mark A. Gouker is the Assistant Head of the Advanced Technology Division at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. Prior to this position, he served as the Leader of the Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group, and earlier, as the Leader of the RF and Quantum Systems Technology Group, and as an Assistant Leader of the Tactical Communication Systems Group in the Laboratory's Communications Division.

He began work at the Laboratory as a technical staff member in the Terminal Technology Group, where he worked on RF electronics for military satellite ground terminals, including work on the first high-mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicle (HMMWV)–mounted communications-on-the-move Milstar satellite terminal.   

In 2002, he moved to the Advanced Technology Division to lead the Analog Device Technology Group, where he developed and managed a number of projects related to military radar, communication, and signals intelligence systems. Superconducting technology, which was among the technology components in the group, grew into a multifaceted quantum information science activity.

Dr. Gouker has experience in antenna design, RF technology, integrated circuit fabrication, and quantum systems technology. He has served on the organizational committees for conferences including GOMACTech and the IEEE International Microwave Symposium. He served six years as a member of the Administrative Committee of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society, and three years as the treasurer of the society. Dr. Gouker earned a BS degree in physics from Emory University and MS and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
