H2020 INCOMING project organized a special session on Massive IoT communications as part of BalkanCom 2021. Massive IoT has been in the focus of research, development and standardization work in the past decade, spurred by the vision of billions of interconnected things that autonomously perform all sorts of applications. Some of the important examples are smart grid, smart cities, smart transportation, smart agriculture and personalized healthcare. This special session aims to present the recent advances in the theoretical foundations and practical applications of massive IoT systems.
BalkanCom is a major event focused on communications, networking and signal processing in the Balkan Region. It was a new conference, conceived as a small single-track event that promotes high research quality standards and brings world-class keynote speakers and researchers to one of the Balkan countries each year. After one year delay due to COVID-19 pandemic, BalkanCom 2021 is successfully organized in Novi Sad as a hybrid event. Keynote speakers lineup included Prof. Danijela Čabrić (UCLA), Prof. Roy Yates (Rutgers University) and Prof. Petar Popovski (Aalborg University).
