Recent years, we have been hearing about Internet of Things, Industrial IoTs (IIoT), Industry 4.0, Smart Factories, Smart HealthCare, Smart Logistic and Supply Chains, Smart Mobility, and Smart Energy etc. These technologies deliver huge economy and financial benefits and will continue the same in near future. But surprisingly, sensor nodes are the backbone of these technologies and these nodes can be worn, carried, embedded in the environment that can provide interesting contextual information. We find sensorsin our daily life, starting from Mobile devices, Automobiles, Industrial automation, Robotic systems, Vehicular Tracking and Management Systems etc. A significant increase in real world event monitoring capability with Wireless Sensor Networks will lead to a further evolution of ubiquitous computing.This new paradigm is about networked microprocessors embedded in everyday objects, surrounding us, talking to each other over wireless links. Wireless Sensor Network along with RFID plays a vital role for ubiquitous computing as both thecomponents can couple the physical world and virtual world.
Further, device to device communication is a promising concept and will be integral part of IoTto improve the resource utilization.Devices will communicate with each other without any centralized control. The device to gather information facilitates the creation of an intelligent environment that pose several networking challenges that traditional communication protocols can not solve.In all the networked applications, security and data privacy is a major concern. To achieve secure communication, power efficient algorithms, optimization techniques, and suitable encryption/decryption techniques must be developed.
The aim of this International Conference is to converge all the issues in a single platform and provide an International forum to discuss the real-time problemsand solutions for it. This conference mainly aims at advanced communication protocols, modelling and simulations, Mobility Modelling, Performance and security measures.
Hyderabad city is the capital city of the Indian state of Telangana.
It lies on the Deccan Plateau, 541 meters (1776 ft) above sea level, over an area of 625 km² (244 mile²).
The city has an estimated population of around 8 million, making it 4th largest city in India , while the population of the metropolitan area was estimated above 9 million. Religiously and culturally, the city is united with Hindus, Muslims and Christians.
Hyderabad city is known for its rich history, food and its multi-lingual culture, both geographically and culturally.
Founded in the year 1591 by fifth Qutb Shahi Ruler Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah.
The original city of Hyderabad was founded on the banks of river Musi. Now known as the historic old city, home to the Charminar, Falaknuma Palace, Chowmallah Palace and Makkah Masjid, it lies on the southern bank of the river.
Hyderabad and Secunderabad are twin cities, separated by the Husain Sagar (bound by the 'Tank Bund'), a man made lake made during the time of Ibrahim Qutb Shah in 1562.
