Keynote Speaker

Keynote 1: On the Load Balancing of Sensor Deployment for WSN

Prof. Sheng-Lung Peng

Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering at National Dong Hwa University, Taiwan


The Internet of things (IoT) is a network concept proposed for integrating physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, items embedded with electronics, and so on such that in IoT these device objects can connect and exchange data. On the other hand, a wireless sensor network (WSN) is a network formed by a large number of sensor nodes such that information obtained by sensors can be collected to a sink server for analysis. It is believed that WSN is a key technology for realizing IoT.

Deployment of sensor nodes, in particular, relay nodes or gateways, is an important issue in studying WSN. For example, clustering and area coverage on WSN are two extensively studied problems. Some balancing issues are also discussed in recent studies. In this talk, we consider a more general problem, namely, graph partitioning problem with load balancing issue. Note that sensors in WSN with their link abilities can define a graph. In this presentation, we will cover both algorithmic aspects and experimental studies for the problem. We hope this talk can trigger some ideas for audience to further study on this research topic.

Keynote  2: Modern to Future Scenario of Drones: Internet of Drone Things (IoDT)

 Dr. Anand Nayyar

Duy Tan University, Da nang city, Viet Nam


Drones hover at the central intersection of the modern technological renaissance, allowing for new and imaginative application of Artificial Intelligence, Flight Technology, 3D Imaging and other burgeoning fields. These curious machines have an increasingly large presence in our anticipated future, bringing both incredible opportunities and new challenges. For humanitarian sector, they allow relief workers to be more informed, more effective and to access and solve complex real-time problems.

Drones already have a huge impact on our lives. For example, they are involved in producing our food: large, professional farms now routinely use drones to detect areas of weeds and poor yield that they need to target for herbicides and fertilisers. This saves farmers a lot of money and prevents them releasing unnecessary chemicals into the environment. Other uses include atmospheric research – to monitor pollution, the weather and climate, and in scientific studies that involve monitoring hazardous areas like volcanoes. They are also having an impact on popular culture; all the film companies use them now and the aerial shots you see in the latest films and TV programmes are captured by drones.

They have great potential; a step change would be the ability to operate drones safely in populated areas – delivering parcels, doing maintenance on buildings and filming events like the London Marathon. For this, drones need to be extremely reliable, so that if one of the rotors fails, it won’t fall into a crowd or road. Through our research, we are trying to understand why components of drones fail – for example whether it is vibration, heat or wear, so that we can build drones that can withstand these problems.

The Internet of Drone Things (IoDT) is regarded as next Future Envision of Smart Drones backend via Internet of Things. The utilization of drones in diverse fields is increasing from organizations to government agencies and from military to Agriculture. With IoDT based implementations, all the existing sectors become more intelligent and smarter with regard to Monitoring, surveillance, search and rescue and more.

 Registration Instructions

Kindly follow the below mentioned guidelines (strictly) related to preparation of final manuscript, copyright transfer form, registration/payment and final submission. The procedure has been detailed as a five step process (I)-(V): 

(I) Preparation of CRC (Final Manuscript for Inclusion in Springer Proceedings Book) You are requested to give a strict attention to the below mentioned points during preparation of final manuscript to avoid any last minute revert backs from the publisher (Springer). 

(a) Please format your paper on the springer template which may be download from our conference website. 

(b) Authors should not mention designation etc. in the name and affiliation part below the paper title. You are requested to mention only name, college/organization name and mail ids of all the authors. However, they may mention acknowledgement if necessary (at the end of the paper-prior to references). Kindly mention full name of your institution and city name. Put a star mark on the mail id of corresponding author. 

(c) Authors should not give any photo and biography at the end of the paper. 

(d) Please address the comments raised by the reviewer(s) as far as practicable. The responsibility lies with the author to incorporate these comments in preparation of your final Camera Ready Copy (CRC) for submission. However, it is worth noting that your paper will not be reviewed again and the submitted CRC (after registration) will be directed to Springer for publication. 

(e) In case there is any content matching issue that is communicated to you by review comments, kindly see that you rewrite the paper to avoid any plagiarism issue in future. While revising there may be possibility of adding few lines and sentences and it may change content overlap. Please be informed that Springer will not allow more than 15% overlap. 

The sole responsibility for correctness of paper lies with the Author(s). Kindly ensure that while incorporating any changes to your paper you do not violate the Springer Plagiarism Policy. Please be informed that Editorial Board or Organizing Committee is not responsible if Springer finally rejects your paper even after you have registered due to plagiarism issue detected by Springer. 

(f) Cite all figures and tables used in the body of the text. Check English sentences, grammars and spelling carefully. You are advised to take support from some expert on this. 

(g) It is mandatory that the submitted manuscript is solely from the authors’ own work and not from the work of others (unless explicit permission for the same has been granted). This includes text, figures and tables. Information from published articles must always be cited explicitly. Proper citation is to give the credit to the work that is originally published (not to follow-up work or reviews). 

(h) Citations should be given close to the information within the sentences or at the end of the sentence, not after several sentences or near the end of the paragraph. Even when citations are given, exact copying of a whole sentence or paragraphs should be indicated by quotation marks. Furthermore, reuse of part of a published figure or table requires a copyright permission from the publishers that hold the rights. All re-published figures and tables should explicitly indicate the original source. 

(i) You have to doubly ensure the format of reference section as well as the mode of citations. 

All references which are cited must be complete in terms of details like: Year of publication, Vol No, Issue No, pages, name of conference/journal etc. wherever required. [Refer detailed guidelines given in template itself] 

All references listed in the end (under reference section) must be cited in the body of the text. 

(j)Prepare your CRC (manuscript) using Springer template without containing any page numbers or any special headers or footers. From the final CRC formatted, authors should generate the electronic version of CRC in PDF format as well. 

(k)You can add or delete authors name in your final paper. Once sent no further alteration will be possible. 

(l) Please note that Springer will make a quality check of each final paper prior to sending it for production. If any issue of plagiarism is detected which is not within the Springer policy then the paper may be rejected even though authors might have registered. Neither the Editorial board nor the Organizing committee will be responsible in this case. Hence, we advise authors to carefully prepare their final paper. 

(m) All Tables and equations in your final paper must be in editable format. No image format is acceptable. 

(n) If you are revising your paper a lot as per the review comments please ensure that later Springer production quality team do not point out any issue of plagiarism later. Conf Organizer will do no further plagiarism check, hence all responsibility lies with author only.
