Uwe D. Hanebeck (IEEE, StM'89-M'91-SM'13-F'17) is a chaired professor of Computer Science at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany and director of the Intelligent Sensor-Actuator-Systems Laboratory (ISAS). From 2005 to 2015, he was the chairman of the Research Training Group RTG 1194 'Self-Organizing Sensor-Actuator-Networks' financed by the German Research Foundation.

Prof. Hanebeck obtained his Ph.D. degree in 1997 and his habilitation degree in 2003, both in Electrical Engineering from the Technical University in Munich, Germany. His research interests are in the areas of information fusion, nonlinear state estimation, stochastic modeling, system identification, and control with a strong emphasis on theory-driven approaches based on stochastic system theory and uncertainty models. Research results are applied to various application topics like localization, human-robot-interaction, assistive systems, sensor-actuator-networks, medical engineering, distributed measuring systems, and extended range telepresence. He is author and coauthor of more than 400 publications in various high-ranking journals and conferences.

Uwe D. Hanebeck was the General Chair of the '2006 IEEE International Conference on Multisensor Fusion and Integration for Intelligent Systems (MFI 2006)', Program Co-Chair of the '11th International Conference on Information Fusion (Fusion 2008)', Program Co-Chair of the '2008 IEEE International Conference on Multisensor Fusion and Integration for Intelligent Systems (MFI 2008)', Regional Program Co-Chair for Europe for the '2010 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2010)', General Chair of the '19th International Conference on Information Fusion (Fusion 2016)', General Chair of the 'IEEE International Conference on Multisensor Fusion and Integration for Intelligent Systems (MFI 2016)', and Program Co-Chair of the '2017 IEEE International Conference on Multisensor Fusion and Integration for Intelligent Systems (MFI 2017)'. Prof. Hanebeck is a Member of the Board of Directors of the 'International Society of Information Fusion (ISIF)', Editor-in-chief of its 'Journal of Advances in Information Fusion (JAIF)', and associate editor for the letter category of the 'IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems (TAES)'. He is a Fellow of the IEEE.
