About Brent A. Miller

BRENT MILLER is Senior Software Engineer in the Pervasive Computing Division at IBM Research Triangle Park, NC. He chaired the Bluetooth task force that produced the Version 1.0 Service Discovery Protocol and Service Discovery Application Profile and is now involved in the Bluetooth SIG's Printing and Extended Service Discovery working groups. CHATSCHIK BISDIKIAN, Research Staff Member at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in Hawthorne, NY, has contributed heavily to the Bluetooth specifications and is involved with standardizing Bluetooth wireless technology in the IEEE 802.15 working group.Author Background and Publication ExperienceBrent A. MillerBrent A. Miller is a senior software engineer in the Pervasive Computing Division atIBM Research Triangle Park, NC, USA. He has led several firmware and software developmentteams in printers, mobile computers and network computing. His pervasive computing interestsinclude adaptivity, printing, power management and service discovery; he has publishedseveral papers and holds several patents in these areas.Miller has been involved in several mobile computing industry consortia and task forces and since November 1998 he has been a member of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, including chairing the Service Discovery task force of the Bluetooth SIG's Software Working group that produced the Version 1.0 Service Discovery Protocol and Service Discovery Application Profile. He is currently involved in the Bluetooth SIG's Printing and Extended Service Discovery working groups. Miller holds a B.S. in Computer and Information Science from the Ohio StateUniversity. He can be reached by e-mail at BisdikianChatschik Bisdikian received the Diploma in Electrical Engineering from the Polytechnic School of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1983, and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees, both in EE, from the University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT, in 1985 and 1988, respectively. Since 1989 he is a Research Staff Member with the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY. His research interests include short-range wireless communication networks, service discovery, spontaneous networking, multimedia and broadband communications, HFC networks and cable modems, modeling and performance evaluation of high-speed networks, computer system modeling and analysis. He has published over 75 technical papers on these and other related areas, and he holds two patents. He has been actively involved with the development of the Bluetooth specification, and he is currently working for the Bluetooth standardization in the IEEE 802.15 working group. In the recent past, he has worked on the development of the IEEE 802.14 draft standard for HFC CaTV systems. Dr. Bisdikian is a 1995 finalist for the Eta Kappa Nu Outstanding Young Electrical Engineer.
