  • Short Bio
    • Yoshito Tobe is a professor at Aoyama Gakuin University. After he obtained M.E. in electrical engineering from the University of Tokyo in 1986, he had been working on process-control local area networks at Toshiba Corp. until 1997. He obtained M.S.(1992) and Ph.D.(2000) from Carnegie Mellon University and Keio University, respectively. His research ranges from wireless sensor networks to urban-area networks. In 2006, he started a five-year project called OSOITE focusing on urban sensing. He served as a chair of SIGUBI of the Information Processing Soceity of Japan and a co-chair of the steering committee of International Conference on Networked Sensing Systems (INSS). He has also served as program chairs and technical program committee members for many sensor-network- and ubiquitous-computing-related conferences including Pervasive 2009.
