[Short Statement]

I am very much honored to be re-appointed by the IEEE VTS Distinguished Lecturer Committee (DLC) as a Distinguished Lecturer for the next two and a half years, starting at July of this year. To be able to fully satisfy the roles and expectations of this position, I shall make as much effort as possible, as in the last 2 years.  This appointment indeed indicates high recognition of our contributions, both in JAIST, Japan, and in Center for Wireless Communications at University of Oulu, Finland, to the IEEE academic society. Again, this appointment is due largely to the academic activities, extraordinary efforts, harmonization, and diligence of all my laboratory members. I greatly appreciate my lab members, and would like to promote their world-level techniques through providing lectures in the world under the status of IEEE Distinguished Lecturer. 

For those students who know professors/research groups in their graduated universities conducting research work related to the IEEE VTS society, please contact them and let them know that we can provide the distinguished lectures, and furthermore, the lectures can be financially supported by the IEEE VT society.
