The conference aimed to bring together researchers, technologists and visionaries from academia, research centres and industry, engineers and students to exchange, discuss, and share their experiences, ideas and research results about theoretical and practical aspects of wireless networking.

Representing TSSG, Kriti Bhargava participated in the conference and presented their paper titled “Collaborative Edge Mining for Predicting Heat Stress in Cattle”, later published in the conference proceedings. The paper discusses a fog computing approach for performing data mining tasks on wireless sensor devices in order to predict significant events in near-real time. The performance of the algorithm is evaluated in the context of a precision farming application for Heat Stress prediction in dairy cattle. The approach is shown to outperform the existing sensor analytics techniques and is primarily beneficial in latency-sensitive scenarios.

The program was split into 7 conference tracks including Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks, Vehicular and Delay Tolerant Networks, 5G and Beyond, Wireless Security and Wireless Communications. A total of 15 sessions, including 3 poster sessions, were held across the 3 day period for authors to present their accepted work. The program also included keynote speeches by Clément Dudal titled “Philae, are you talking to me?”, Stefano Basagni titled “Beyond Duty Cycling: How to Wake-up Radio Technology”, and Ram Ramanathan titled “Scalable Multi-Hop Wireless Networks”. Further, a welcome reception was held for all participants in the city Capitol on the 23rd evening while an Airbus tour and gala dinner was organized on the evening of 24th March.
