Dr.Ing. Abdelfatteh Haidine received his Ph.D. in 2008 from the Technische Universität Dresden, Germany, with a focus on the planning and optimization of telecommunications networks. He worked as a consultant and manager for the deployment of smart metering systems and smart grid applications. Currently, he is a professor for wireless/mobile communications and intelligent systems with the Laboratory of Information Technologies, National School of Applied Sciences, Morocco. His research interests include different issues related to Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet-of-Things (IoT) communications, networking technologies for smart domains: smart maritime port, smart city and smart grid applications, and so on. This covers LPWA networks and their techno-economical aspects. Dr. Haidine also deals with the application of combinatorial optimization as well as the Game Theory paradigm in network planning/migration and resources allocation in broadband mobile networks. In addition, he investigates artificial intelligence and machine learning in optimization procedures/paradigms.
