DCOSS 2019 International Conference

The DCOSS 2019[1] is the 15th International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems, hosted on Santorini Island in Greece, in May 29-31, 2019. In the last few years, we have witnessed a significant growth in the use of distributed sensor systems in a number of application areas, ranging from smart transport, energy and buildings, to factory automation, smart healthcare and environmental monitoring.

In order for smart sensor systems to truly become useful and pervasive, we need to address a number of research challenges, including the tight integration of sensing and machine intelligence, reliable and efficient networking, interoperability and scalability, the need for dependable autonomy, interaction with humans, and important aspects of security, privacy and trust.

The DCOSS 2019 Conference has focused on distributed information processing issues arising in networked sensor systems, covering aspects of high level abstractions, models and languages, novel algorithms and applications, system design approaches and architectures, as well as tools for simulated and real deployments. To this aim, potential authors have been invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate recent advances in both theoretical and experimental research.

In the context of the above event, OTE has prepared a 5G ESSENCE-dedicated Booth (as depicted in the following figure), with related presentations and videos, explaining the scope, the objectives, the architecture and the use cases of the project. In addition, an informative presentation about 5G ESSENCE current state-of-the-art has been given.

In the scope of the performed activities, interactive discussions have taken place as of the innovative features proposed and promoted by the 5G ESSENCE approach and OTE’s involved staff to the DCOSS 2019 Event had the opportunity to present progress performed at various sections of the project.
