Amelia Andersdotter

Amelia Andersdotter has worked with internet infrastructures from a range of perspectives, regulatory, technical and social, for over a decade. Previously with UK-based freedom of speech-organisation ARTICLE19, she participated in IEEE 802 as recording secretary for IEEE 802.11 SG Next-Generation Vehicles, and IEEE 802.11 TIG Chair for Randomized and changing MAC addresses. Her work in IEEE 802 focused on privacy considerations for networked technologies, but she has also researched differential privacy in the IETF, and privacy and security features in mobile networks. Amelia previously worked with IPR, telecoms law, and identity management as elected official in the European Parliament, and currently with DNS topics as Director of Strategic Initiatives at Brussels-based CENTR. Her educational background is in mathematical statistics and business law. Amelia /likes/ the internet.

Dr. Andrew Myles

Dr Andrew Myles has been involved in IEEE-SA based standards development work since 1988. For the last 20 years, he has mainly focused on the development of IEEE 802.11 (Wi-Fi) as a participant, editor and chair in various sub-groups of IEEE 802. His IEEE-SA standards development work has also led him to become involved in a variety of complementary organisations, including the Wi-Fi Alliance, ISO/IEC JTC1, 3GPP and ETSI. His current technical focus is ensuring that Wi-Fi and 5G share the spectrum in a somewhat fair manner in the unlicensed 5 & 6 GHz bands. Dr Myles is also involved in the governance of the international standards ecosystem as Member-At-Large of the IEEE-SA Board of Governors and a Director (and former Chair) of the Wi-Fi Alliance Board of Directors. His current governance focus in the IEEE-SA is to promote “enhanced openness” for the IEEE-SA standards development process. Dr Myles is an employee of Cisco Systems, where he is considered to be a little bit Wi-Fi biased!
