CONET 2010

The First International Workshop on Networks of Cooperating Objects will be held on April 12th, 2010 – Stockholm, Sweden, collocated with the CPS Week 2010.

During the last decade, the continuous improvement and miniaturization of integrated circuits has led to new types of computing systems. An emerging trend is the collaboration of miniature devices to achieve a common goal. Representative examples include wireless sensor networks, pervasive computing and embedded systems.

Along this trend, the notion of Cooperating Objects collectively refers to embedded computing devices equipped with communication as well as sensing or actuation capabilities, able to cooperate and organize themselves autonomously into networks to achieve a common task. As such, Cooperating Objects envision a single, coherent system formed by a wide range of devices, including those from the areas mentioned above. The complexity germane to the interaction inside and across networks of Cooperating Objects presents a rich set of research questions, and entails a wide range of scientific disciplines, such as networking, software engineering, and control theory.

CONET 2010 will provide a discussion forum for researchers, aimed at fostering synergy and convergence of complementary areas towards the vision of networks of Cooperating Objects. Work-in-progress systems, provocative ideas, and position papers paving the road towards such synergy and convergence are particularly welcome.

iPack striving for a ubiquitous intelligent world


Ubiquitous intelligence will impact our world and how we live by changing the computing landscape enabling new breeds of applications and systems to be developed such as embedding tiny and intelligent systems in almost everything including artifacts, the human body, paper and packaging.
In order to tap into these markets a Research Centre has been set up in Sweden funded by the Swedish, government and companies from its major industries in forestry, electronics and biomedical. These industries will work together to develop core technologies for the integration of bio-medical and chemical sensors, energy supplies, computing and wireless communications on fiber-based paper-boards, for innovative products such as smart bio-paper, intelligent pharmaceutical packaging and storage and intelligent patient monitoring devices.
