Highlights of the Year


Together with his co-authors, Aline Carneiro Viana was awarded: (1) the best poster award at the main conference on the scientific analysis of mobile phone datasets (NetMob) in Oxford, UK, Jul. 2019, for the poster on Complete Trajectory Reconstruction from Sparse Mobile Phone Data (collaboration with G. Chen, M. Fiore, and C. Sarraute); (2) the top-six best paper award at the 27th International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems 2019 (ACM SIGSPATIAL), in Chicago, USA, Nov. 2019, for the paper on Deciphering Predictability Limits in Human Mobility.

RIOT Summit 2019

We successfully organized in September 2019 the fourth RIOT Summit, in Helsinki. The RIOT Summit 2019 gathered 100 enthusiastic industrial participants, makers and academics involved in RIOT. Highlights included a keynote from IoT expert and former IETF general chair Jari Arkko (Ericsson Research), and a new car-sharing product using RIOT announced by Continental (and now deployed on thousands of vehicles). Aside of big companies and academics, a number of SMEs and startups from various places in Europe gave talks on aspects of IoT communication, use cases IoT hardware, IoT open source community aspects and concepts for future IoT software and networks, as well as hands-on sessions and tutorials.

Associated team - EMBRACE

2019 was the third and last year of the EMBRACE Associated team. The EMBRACE (lEveraging huMan Behavior for Resource AlloCation and services orchestration modEls) team was composed by members of the INFINE and by three Brazilian teams from three different Brazilian Universities. The EMBRACE project addressed the topic of designing efficient solutions for 5G networks taking into account human behavior, uncertainty, and heterogeneity of networking resources. A proposal requesting the extension of the project was submitted in Nov. 2019.

IETF Hackathons

Concerning Internet Standardization, we contributed to all three IETF Hackathons in 2019. In particular, Oumaima Attia and Cedric Adjih were some major contributors (with many others including Vincent Roca, EPI Privatics) in the NWCRG Hackathon which allowed to release in first prototype of SWIF-codec, a sliding-window forward-error correction codec, see: Cedric Adjih is also a major contributor to the LPWAN Hackathon on the SCHC protocol (IPv6 compression for IoT networks), which resulted this year in code at, a working prototype of the protocol.
