PS PhD Students receive 3 Best Paper Awards in Summer 2014 
In the last few weeks the Pervasive Systems group (EWI/PS) achieved a remarkable record: three (!) papers received the best paper award at three different conferences!

On 27 August 2014, the paper “Online Change Detection for Energy-Efficient Mobile Crowdsensing", presented at the 11th International Conference on Mobile Web Information Systems (MobiWIS 2014) in Barcelona, Spain, won the best paper award. The paper’s authors are: Le Viet Duc, Hans Scholten, and Paul Havinga. The conference is a well-established conference in the domain of Mobile Information Systems, with over 400 visitors. The research presented in this paper is funded by the Dutch SenSafety project. The paper addresses a fundamental new approach in opportunistic sensing with smart phones. The paper was in particular praised because it enables new interactive sensor enabled apps to run efficiently.

On 13 September 2014, the paper “An Efficient Water Flow Control Approach for Water Heaters in Direct Load Control", presented at the 1st International Conference on Engineering, Science, and Technology Innovation in Bali, Indonesia, won the best paper award. The paper deals with a new optimization approach for energy-efficient appliances in homes. The paper’s authors are: Alexander Belov, Nirvana Meratnia, Berend Jan van der Zwaag, and Paul Havinga. The research presented in this paper is funded by the Dutch Go-Green project that deals with energy-efficient homes. The award came with a certificate and a money prize of 1.000.000 IDR.

On 19 September 2014, the paper “A distributed Management scheme for supporting Energy-harvested I/O devices”, presented at the 19th IEEE International Conference on Emerging Technologies and Factory Automation (ETFA'2014) in Barcelona, Spain, won the best paper award. ETFA is the flagship conference on industrial and factory automation, and attracts a large number of visitors (this year more than 800), both from industry and academia. The research presented in the paper is funded by the European project WiBRATE. The paper presents a novel distributed scheme for industrial wireless networks (ISA100) that enables energy-harvested sensor and actuator devices to use the wireless network effectively. The paper’s authors are: Pouria Zand, Kallol Das, Emi Matthews, and Paul Havinga.
