Editorial Board
Editors in Chief:
  • Phan Cong Vinh (Nguyen Tat Thanh University (NTTU))+ BioPhan Cong Vinh received a PhD in computer science from London South Bank University (LSBU) in the United Kingdom. He finished his PhD dissertation with the title of “Formal Aspects of Dynamic Reconfigurability in Reconfigurable Computing Systems” at LSBU where he was affiliated with the Center for Applied Formal Methods (CAFM) at the Institute for Computing Research (ICR). At present, he is an Associate Professor of Nguyen Tat Thanh University (NTTU) to take on the responsibility of a senior research scientist. He has been author or co-author of many refereed contributions published in prestigious journals, conference proceedings or edited books. He is editor of three books titled, “Autonomic Networking-on-Chip: Bio-Inspired Specification, Development and Verification” (CRC Press, 2012), “Formal and Practical Aspects of Autonomic Computing and Networking: Specification, Development and Verification” (IGI Global, 2011) and “Nature-Inspired Networking: Theory and Applications” (CRC Press, 2018). He has served on many conference program committees and has been general or technical (co)chair and (co)organizer of several international conferences such as ICCASA and ICTCC series. His research interests center on all aspects of formal methods in computing, context-awareness, nature of computation and communication, and applied categorical structures in computer science.
