Keynote: "Constructive Interference - Back to the Drawing Board"


Prof. Koen Langendoen

Delft University of Technology

Abstract: IPSN'11 was a memorable conference as the Glossy paper by Ferrari et al. demonstrated to the WSN community that Constructive Interference could be effectively deployed on Mote hardware. Instead of avoiding interference by neighboring nodes, the Glossy protocol deliberately orchestrates simultaneous transmissions to achieve fast and efficient network-wide flooding. That insight of "embracing interference" prompted many researchers to go back to the drawing board and develop new communication protocols.

In this keynote I will not only sketch the main developments around Constructive Interference over the last 5 years, but also question its actual existence!

Keynote: "Bluetooth inside"



Dr. Jaap Haartsen


Abstract: Wireless connectivity has become a part of our daily life. It is hard to imagine a world without smartphones. In 1994, a new wireless system was developed, we now know under the name Bluetooth. The success of Bluetooth has been closely connected to the success of mobile phones. This presentation gives a glimpse behind the scenes of creating a new wireless standard. First, it is explained why there was a need for a new system, why not using something existing? What design choices were made and why? And how was the new technology successfully brought to the market for all consumers to enjoy.
