Special Session – Massive Internet of Things and Edge Computing
Organizers and Chairs:
Dejan Vukobratović, University of Novi Sad, Serbia
Čedomir Stefanović, Aalborg University, Denmark
Dates: Monday-Wednesday, 22-24th August 2022
H2020 INCOMING project organized a second special session on Massive IoT communications and Edge Computing as part of BalkanCom 2022. Collecting massive amounts of data and its processing in a timely manner at the network edge enables a number of emerging distributed and low-latency network applications and services. Wireless communication technologies that provide massive access to the network by billions of devices, efficient distributed storage, and computing algorithms facilitate the development of future large-scale autonomous systems. Some of the important examples of application areas fostered by these technolgies are smart grid, smart cities, smart transportation, smart agriculture and personalized healthcare.
Recent advances in uncoordinated access protocols, edge and cloud computing, and machine learning applications open exciting new possibilities for novel networking architectures and solutions tailored for massive IoT systems. This special session aimed to present the recent advances in the theoretical foundations and practical applications of massive IoT systems and edge computing algorithms and architectures.
BalkanCom is a major event focused on communications, networking and signal processing in the Balkan Region. It is 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. BalkanCom 2022 is successfully organized as a physical event in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Keynote speakers lineup included Prof. Vincent Poor (Princeton University), Prof. Muriel Medard (MIT) and Prof. Helmut Bolcskei (ETH Zurrich).
