Keynote I: (60 min)

Session Chair: Enrico Rukzio

“Network Coding and User Cooperation on Mobile Phones”
Prof. Frank Fitzek, University of Aalborg, Denmark

Abstract:
This keynote addresses the potential of network coding in mobile communication systems. Network coding will change the communication world as it changes the way we design communication protocols. The talk will also highlight a special case of user cooperation and the combination with network coding. The talk will highlight the developments of network coding on mobile platforms (Symbian/iPhone/Android). Small demonstrations will show the feasibility of network coding even on smallest mobile devices.

Frank H. P. Fitzek is an Associate Professor in the department of Electronic Systems, University of Aalborg, Denmark heading the Future Vision group. He received his diploma (Dipl.-Ing.) degree in electrical engineering from the University of Technology - Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule (RWTH) - Aachen, Germany, in 1997 and his Ph.D. (Dr.-Ing.) in Electrical Engineering from the Technical University Berlin, Germany in 2002 for quality of service support in wireless CDMA networks. As a visiting student at the Arizona State University he conducted research in the field of video services over wireless networks. He co-founded the start-up company acticom GmbH in Berlin in 1999. In 2002 he was Adjunct Professor at the University of Ferrara, Italy giving lectures on wireless communications and conducting research on multi-hop networks. In 2005 he won the YRP award for the work on MIMO MDC and received the Young Elite Researcher Award of Denmark. He was selected to receive the NOKIA Champion Award in 2007 and 2008. In 2008 he was awarded the Nokia Achievement Award for his work on cooperative networks. His current research interests are in the areas of wireless and mobile communication networks, mobile phone programming, cross layer as well as energy efficient protocol design and cooperative networking.

Keynote II: (60 min)

Session Chair: Lambros Lambrinos

“ErdOS: A Social Network Operating System for Mobile Resource Pooling”
Prof. Jon Crowcroft, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom

Abstract:
The resource pooling principle is re-emerging as a way to use statistical multiplexing properties of networks with multiple redundant paths more efficiently than in the past. In this work, we are applying the same principle to mobile handheld systems such as smart phones. The goal of the system we are building, called ERdos, is to pool all resources such as sensors (cameras, microphones, accelerometers), storage (memory, disk, flash) and networks (Bluetooth, wifi, 2.5G/3G/4, zigbee). Initially our motivation was energy reduction. By using the already-enabled GPS on a nearby phone via a low cost wireless link (e.g. Bluetooth), rather than turning on our own GPS, we can reduce the battery load significantly. Remote tethering and sharing of flat-rate charged wide area data services is another candidate application. Clearly for multimedia (audio or video) one could also pool network links to support higher rates, or lower power consumption (depending on user preference) than on a single device. The social aspect of our work is that we take advantage of the pre-existing (or declared) relationship between the set of user/owners of the mobile devices to avoid the problem of how to trust and incentivize sharing. This talk will describe the approach, the system, and some initial results and thoughts about the future of such systems.

Jon Crowcroft is the Marconi Professor of Networked Systems in the Computer Laboratory, of the University of Cambridge. Prior to that he was professor of networked systems at UCL in the Computer Science Department. He is a Fellow of the ACM, a Fellow of the British Computer Society and a Fellow of the IEE and a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, as well as a Fellow of the IEEE. He was a member of the IAB 96-02, and went to the first 50 IETF meetings; was general chair for the ACM SIGCOMM 95-99; is recipient of Sigcomm Award in 2009. He is the Principle Investigator in the Computer Lab for the EU Social Networks project, the EPSRC funded Horizon Digital Economy project, hubbed at Nottingham, the EPSRC funded project on federated sensor nets project FRESNEL, in collaboration with Oxford; and a new 5-year project towards a Carbon Neutral Internet with Leeds. He worked for Bloomsbury Computer Consortium for 2 years. He was sabbatical at Hewlett Packard Research Labs Bristol Technical Advisory Board for 10 startups Ensim, Orchestream, Bandwiz, Nexthop, Interprovider, Corvil, Ethos, Zattoo, Hidden Footprints and others). He worked on Technical Advisory Board for Microsoft Research Cambridge, KAIST and MPI, and previously for DoCoMo Labs, California and visiting faculty at Intel research. He was a technical reviewer for corporate datanetwork stratetgy, Ericsson Consulting to Reuters, BBC, Nortel, Cisco, Oftel (now Ofcomm) amongst others. His current research interests are in the areas of communications, multimedia and social systems, especially Internet related.

Session Chair: Michael Rohs

“Mobile Applications: From the lab to the market”
Prof. Frank Fitzek, University of Aalborg, Denmark

Abstract:
Mobile apps are dominating the mobile communication ecosystem like nothing else ever did before. On the long run applications will not be the simple applications we see nowadays. Innovation will be the main engine behind the future mobile apps. The tutorial will explain the mobile app ecosystem and explain how innovation coming from research is becoming the vital ingredient for mobile apps.
