The extended version of selected papers will be published in a special issue of the MDPI Sensors Journal.
The unprecedented prosperity of IoT brings explosive development of wireless devices as well as the rich diversity of wireless technologies. Wireless coexistence for heterogeneous IoT has become an attractive and highly visible research area. Early works usually focus on surviving cross-technology interference by avoiding, tolerating or resolving interference. Emerging techniques, such as cross-technology communication and backscatter communication, enable the direct communication between incompatible technologies and push the limit of existing technologies. They shed the light on achieving the ubiquitous interconnection of heterogeneous IoT and bring new research opportunities. The Workshop on Recent Advances in Wireless Coexistence for Heterogeneous IoT (CoWireless 2019) focuses on the fundamental problems as well as the applications of wireless coexistence, including the architecture, design, implementation, and measurement of wireless coexistence for heterogeneous IoT systems, cross-technology communication, coordination and cooperation of heterogeneous technologies, and other issues related to wireless coexistence.
CISC 2019: The Second International Workshop on Crowd Intelligence for Smart Cities: Technology and ApplicationsCities are experiencing significant challenges in many aspects such as efficient energy management, economic growth and development, security and quality of life of their citizens. In particular, in the era of big data, mobile internet, social network, and cloud computing, we are now provided with good opportunities to leverage the crowd intelligence, i.e., cooperation of the massive individual intelligence, to better sense and manage the city. After the successful hosting of the first CISC (July, 2016, in France), the objective of the second CISC (CISC 2019, in China) is to further bring together researchers and practitioners both from academia and industries with the goal to discuss, identify and share experiences surrounding construction of smart city systems, city context analysis, its applications and deployment experiences based on the crowd intelligence. We hope that the workshop will contribute to establish a research community in the smart city research area with a focus on the crowd intelligence.
This workshop aims to bring together experts from academia and industry who are working in distributed service computing aspects of fog platforms. The goal is to present and explore novel approaches and recent results of the research community and the industry bodies, and debate on and discuss priorities and challenges in the research agenda.
