The proposed tutorial aims to provide researcher, students and industrialists with essential theory and practical skill sets to start a project or a career in the field of Machine-to-Machine, IoT, and wireless sensor networks. This workshop has been run a number of times and has received a good interest from academia and industry as well as IEEE education activities. The attendees will be provided the theory on: hardware, software and networking aspects and challenges of wireless sensor networks. The lecture includes a variety of real applications and projects which will be linked to the practical part of the tutorial.
Mona Ghassemian received her PhD in “Mobile and Personal Communications” research from King’s College London in 2006 with NTT DoCoMo scholarship. She obtained her Dipl. Eng. in Electrical Engineering (major in Control and Instrumentation systems) from the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad in 1997. In 2001 she received the M.Sc. by Research degree in Mobile and personal communication systems from King’s College London by distinction.
After completion of her PhD she continued at King’s College London as a research assistant in E-Sense (a project of the 6th Framework Programme of the EU Commission). She worked at University of Greenwich as a senior lecturer and PG programme leader in computer networking 2007-2012. She visited a number of universities; namely UoT, TU, SUT, UCI, Passau, and UPV collaborated with their research groups.
She is currently a faculty member School of Computer Science and Engineering at Shahid Beheshti University since September 2012. Also, she is a visiting research associate at King’s College London and IEEE Region 8 Student Activity Committee Chair. Her research interest is mainly on IoT and Wireless Sensor Networks with a focus on wireless healthcare and well-being.
Mohsen Shirali received his M.Sc. in computer architecture from Shahid Beheshti University in 2013 with distinction. In 2010, he received his B.Sc. in Software engineering from Islamic Azad University-Tehran North Branch. His research was focused on “security of wireless sensor networks” and “standards and applications of industrial networks” for his master and his BEng projects, respectively.
He is currently a PhD candidate at eSense research lab in Faculty of Computer Science and Engineering at Shahid Beheshti University, Tehran, Iran.
His research interests are mainly on Wireless Sensor Networks, Smart home, Body Area Networks and Brain Computer Interfaces with a focus on wireless health applications. He collaborated in a number of workshops on wireless sensor networks in national and international events.
