Bernhard Plattner is a Full Professor of computer engineering at ETH Zürich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) in Zürich, Switzerland, where he leads the Communication Systems Group.

He has been the principal investigator or Co-PI of numerous national and international projects in the area of computer networking. His current research interests are in self-organizing networks, mobile ad-hoc networks, as well as practical aspects of information security. He has also directed research on active networks, starting as early as 1996, and multimedia applications for high-speed networks. In 1996–1998, he served as the Head of Faculty of Electrical Engineering at ETH Zürich. Between 2005 to 2007 he served as the Vice-Rector of ETH Zurich in charge of Bachelor and Master studies.

Dr. Plattner is a member of the ACM, the IEEE, and the Internet Society. He served as the program or general chair of various international conferences, such as ACM SIGCOMM’91, INET’94, and IWAN 2002, and has served in the program committees of other major conferences, such as IEEE INFOCOM.
