EMMON results presented at top-notch scientific events

Latest EMMON results have been recently presented at high quality venues ACM SenSys, ACM MSWiM and IEEE EUC.

A joint paper on the EMMON system architecture and involving several EMMON partners has been presented at the 9th IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Embedded and Ubiquitous Computing (EUC 2011,, October 24-26, 2011, Melbourne, Australia.

EMMON has also been disseminated at the 9th ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (Sensys 2011, in Seattle, WA, USA, November 1-4, 2011. The poster “EMMON - A WSN System Architecture and Toolset for Large-Scale and Dense Real-Time Embedded Monitoring” has been presented, together with a demo on a EMMON-related work: “Automatic Personal Identification System for Security in Critical Services - A Case Study”

The paper “The dark side of DEMMON: what is behind the scene in engineering large-scale wireless sensor networks” has been presented at the 14th ACM International Conference on Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Wireless and Mobile Systems (MSWiM 2011,, Miami Beach, FL, USA November 1-3, 2011.

This paper reflects the work carried out under EMMON on developing an integrated toolset for deployment planning, network analysis, simulation and dimensioning and hardware testing/programming. (“DEMMON” stands for EMMON demonstrator)

A baseline version of the EMMON system architecture (encompassing communication network architecture, middleware architecture and command and control client/server applications) as well as the EMMON toolset have been experimentally validated through a 300+ nodes demonstrator in DEC/2010 in Porto, Portugal, which has been and still is the largest WSN test-bed in Europe to date. EMMON is currently working towards a final demonstrator with 400+ sensor nodes plus thousands of virtual nodes in a real-world scenario.

The objective of publishing EMMON-related work in highly demanding scientific venues is essentially two-folded: disseminating project results and confirming the scientific validity and innovation of EMMON results.
