Internet of NanoThings & BioNanoThings (IoNT & IoBNT)
Palestrante: Prof. Ian F. Akyildiz, Geogia Institute of Technology, EUA
Internet of Things became an important research topic in the last decade where Things refer to machines and objects interconnected to extend the Internet to many application domains. While the research and deployments continue for micro-Things, there are many applications where much smaller, tiny and non-intrusive Things are needed. Nanomaterials such as graphene or metamaterials can be used to produce these nano-scale Things whose interconnection with the Internet can lead to the new network paradigm called Internet of NanoThings (IoNT). However, there are many health-related applications where networks composed of biological nanomachines are needed. This leads us to yet another network paradigm called Internet of Bio-NanoThings (IoBNT) which can provide new opportunities for many novel healthcare applications, including fine sensing of diseases and tumors in various parts of the human body, targeted drug delivery and overall personalized health monitoring. Within this context, this talk captures the state of the art in electromagnetic and molecular communication among nanoscale devices. An in-depth view is provided from the communication and information theoretic perspective, by highlighting the major research challenges in terms of channel modeling, information encoding and protocols for nanonetworks and the Internet of NanoThings and Bio-NanoThings.
I. F. AKYILDIZ received his BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Computer Engineering from the University of Erlangen-Nuernberg, Germany, in 1978, 1981 and 1984, respectively. Currently, he is the Ken Byers Chair Professor with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, Director of the Broadband Wireless Networking Laboratory and Chair of the Telecommunications Group. He is an Honorary Professor with School of Electrical Engineering at the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, and Director of N3Cat (NaNoNetworking Center in Catalunya) in Barcelona, Spain, since June 2008. Dr. Akyildiz is also the Finnish Distinguished Professor with Tampere University of Technology, Tampere, Finland since January 2013. He is the Editor-in-Chief of Computer Networks (Elsevier) Journal since 2000, the founding Editor-in-Chiefs of the Ad Hoc Networks Journal (2003), Physical Communication (PHYCOM) Journal (2008), and Nano Communication Networks (NANOCOMNET) Journal (2010) all published by Elsevier.
His current research interests are in Nano-Scale Communications, 5G Cellular Systems, Software Defined Networking and Wireless Sensor Networks in Challenged Environments.

The Tactile Internet – IoT, 5G and Cloud on Steroids)
Palestrante: Prof. Mischa Dohler, King’s College of London, Reino Unido
Currently we can see and hear through the Internet, but we cannot touch. We have a vision to create the Tactical Internet, where we would be able to touch through the median of the internet. This would transform some very basic but vital tasks, like online shopping where the user might want to touch and feel the texture of a dress or jacket before buying it, but, most importantly, this has the potential to transform the way that healthcare, engineering and wealth is delivered globally. We will be able to convey physical, tactile experiences remotely and thus invoke a fundamental shift from content-delivery to skillset-delivery networks. This keynote will summarize the potentials, building blocks and challenges which lay ahead for designing the Tactile Internet.
Mischa Dohler is full Professor in Wireless Communications at King’s College London, Head of the Centre for Telecommunications Research, co-founder and member of the Board of Directors of the smart city pioneer Worldsensing, Fellow and Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE, and Editor-in-Chief of the Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies and the EAI Transactions on the Internet of Things.
He is a frequent keynote, panel and tutorial speaker, and has received numerous awards. He has pioneered several research fields, contributed to numerous wireless broadband, IoT/M2M and cyber security standards, holds a dozen patents, organized and chaired numerous conferences, has more than 200 publications, and authored several books. He has a citation h-index of 39. He acts as policy, technology and entrepreneurship adviser, examples being Richard Branson’s Carbon War Room, House of Parliament UK, UK Ministry BIS, EPSRC ICT Strategy Advisory Team, European Commission, Tech London Advocate, ISO Smart City working group, and various start-ups.
He is also an entrepreneur, angel investor, passionate pianist and fluent in 6 languages. He has talked at TEDx. He had coverage by national and international TV & radio; and his contributions have featured on BBC News and the Wall Street Journal.

PLC for Smart Grid and Smart Cities
Palestrante: Dr. Stefano Galli, ASSIA Inc., EUA
The design of the Smart Grid requires solving a complex problem of combined sensing, communications and control and, thus, the problem of choosing a networking technology cannot be addressed without also taking into consideration requirements related to sensor networking and distributed control. These considerations apply even more when the problem we are trying to solve goes beyond the Smart Grid itself and includes requirements for supporting Smart City and even Internet-of-Things. These requirements are today still somewhat undefined so that it is not possible yet to give quantitative guidelines on how to choose one communication technology over the other. This talk will start by pointing out the interplay between Smart Grid architecture and energy supply security, and how this has important consequences on ICT requirements. The talk will then focus on the use of Power Line Communications (PLC), an excellent and mature technology that can support a wide variety of applications from the transmission side to the distribution side and also to and within the home and across the city.
Stefano Galli received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” (Italy) in 1994 and 1998, respectively. Currently, he is the Director of Technology Strategy of ASSIA, the leading developer of automated management and diagnostics tools for broadband networks. Prior to this position, he held the role of Director of Energy Solutions R&D for Panasonic Corporation and Senior Scientist at Bellcore. Dr. Galli is very active in various professional organizations and holds senior roles. He is serving as the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) Chief Information officer (CIO), Member of the IEEE ComSoc Board of Governors, director of Smart Grid activities for the IEEE ComSoc Technical Committee on Power Line Communications, member of the Energy and Policy Committee of IEEE-USA, and as Editor for various IEEE Transactions and Magazines. Dr. Galli is also serving as Rapporteur for the ITU-T Q15/15 “Communications for Smart Grid” standardization group. Past positions include serving as Co-Chair the “Communications Technology” Task Force of the IEEE 2030 Smart Grid standard, Leader of the “Theoretical and Mathematical Models” Group of the IEEE 1901 Broadband over Power Lines standard, and Founder and first Chair of the IEEE ComSoc Technical Committee on Power Line Communications.
Dr. Galli is a Fellow of the IEEE, has received the IEEE ISPLC Best Paper Award in 2010 and 2015, the 2014 Broadband Forum Outstanding Contributor Award, the 2013 IEEE Donald G.
