ProSense Special Session at DCOSS
A Special Session on Sensor Networking will be held in parallel to DCOSS '08, on June 14, 2008.
The Session is organized by the EU R&D Project ProSense ("Promote, Mobilize, Reinforce and Integrate Wireless Sensor Networking Research and Researchers: Towards Pervasive Networking of West Balkan Counties and the EU") (SEVENTH FRAMEWORK PROGRAMME, REGPOT-2007-3-01, Grant agreement no.: 205494).
Confirmed papers include:
- Ivan Stojmenovic (University of Birmingham, UK), How to Write Research Articles in Computer Science and Related Engineering Disciplines
- David Simplot-Ryl (INRIA, France), TBA
- Athanassios Kinalis and Sotiris Nikoletseas (CTI and U. of Patras, Greece), Adaptive Data Propagation for Diverse Sensory Mobility
- Animesh Pathak and Viktor K. Prasanna (University of Southern California, USA), Srijan: A Graphical Toolkit for WSN Application Development
- Olivier Powell (University of Geneva, Switzerland), Passive and Lightweight Target Tracking for Sensor Networks
- Jayant Gupchup, Abhishek Sharma, Andreas Terzis, Randal Burns, Alex Szalay (Johns Hopkins University, USA), The Perils of Detecting Measurement Faults in Environmental Monitoring Networks
The overall objective of ProSense is to improve the research potential and capability of selected WBC research centres and to develop them into wireless sensor networking centres of excellence capable of driving the research agenda and serving as a seed for development of other similar centres in the region. The main course of action will be to leverage already achieved results and continue building established relationship between the WBC and the EU institutions and researchers through collaboration on specific use cases with high significance for socio-economic needs of the WB countries. Two use cases, one for each WBC centre, have been selected as particularly interesting and beneficial for the WBC region: personal health monitoring systems (including systems for support of independent living) and emergency/disaster recovery applications. This will be achieved on one side through an active and organized exchange of researchers and on the other side through exchange of scientific know-how and RTD results at a series of workshops and seminars. These activities will reinforce the research potential of the WBC and the EUís convergence partners, providing a sustainable research platform for future needs of the region and the wider EU community.
