The Internet of things (IoT) is a system of interconnected computing devices, objects such as machine, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers with the ability to transfer data over a network. Computing is being transformed to a model consisting of services that are commoditized and delivered in a manner similar to utilities such as water, electricity, gas, telephony, etc. In such a model, users access services based on their requirements without regard to where the services are hosted. Several computing paradigms have promised to deliver this utility-computing vision. Computing has emerged as one of the buzzwords in the IT industry and turned the vision of "computing utilities" into a reality. Several IT vendors have started offering computation, storage, and application hosting services, and provide coverage in several continents, supporting Service-Level Agreements (SLA) backed performance and uptime promises for their services. It leads to generates huge numbers of structure and unstructured data. Therefore, Enterprise and Big-Data applications need tools and platforms for their rapid construction and deployment on Clouds on-demand meeting user QoS requirements at lower price. This also helps in automation of the system in industry through Science and Technology and Engineering like; Instrumentation, IT, Mechatronic, Telecommunication, Electrical, among few others. However, by and large, companies fail to systematically collect, store, analyze and use such data to improve process efficiency or meet other goals. So, these data sets need to be analyzed using Machine learning concept that has experienced a boost in popularity among both academia and industry. This conference aims at providing an opportunity and platform to present and discuss recent advances in the field of IoT, Machine learning and Big data independently and also as a confluence of ideas.
The Conference will be held at the campus of Indira Gandhi Institute of Technology, Sarang, Dhenkanal, Odisha-759146. The venue can be reached both by road and train. The nearest railway station is Talcher road. The venue is about 140Kms from the state capital Bhubaneswar.
Indira Gandhi Institute of Technology (IGIT), Sarang was established in 1982. IGIT Sarang offers Ph.D, PG, UG and Diploma programs in Engineering and Science. Most of the programmes were accredited in the year 2008 by the National Board of Accreditation of AICTE. The departments are greatly benefited by the expertise of faculties. Each department conducts annually at least one Conference / Seminar / Workshop for effective dissemination of state-of-art technologies and research findings for the benefit of teaching faculty and industries. The institute is extremely proud of its alumni, a considerable number of them being entrepreneurs or senior executives in industries both within India and abroad. The institution is located at Sarang, at the bank of river Brahmani , about 8 kms from Talcher and 120 kms from Bhubaneswar and is well communicated by bus and train . The climate is good and amusing at IGIT during July. The stay will be very much pleasant during this period.
Abstract: The ubiquitous IEEE 802.11 family of protocols has its genesis in the random access protocols of the early days of computer networks. The first protocols allowed for a peak bandwidth of 2Mbps. They have come a long way since then and Gbps rates are on the horizon. In the process, we also have an alphabet soup of variations. In this tutorial, we will trace the history of this protocol and understand the engineering choices that were made in designing them. We will also discuss the state of the art and the emerging standards and also see how they fit into the wireless world of 4G, 5G and beyond.

Abstract: Fog computing consists of modest capability fog nodes located close to users/data generation sources. These nodes are ideal for executing small interactive tasks with low latency requirements. Tasks that are larger and more latency tolerant may be executed at the cloud data center. In this talk, we discuss RT-SANE (Real-Time Security Aware scheduling on the Network Edge), a scheduling algorithm for real-time tasks on fog-cloud systems. RT-SANE supports both batch and interactive applications, taking account of their deadline and security constraints. RT-SANE chooses between a micro data center (in proximity to a user) and a cloud data center by taking account of network delay and security tags. We also discuss a fog computing based over-the-air (OTA) update algorithm for smart vehicles. We propose a mobility management algorithm that takes into account the mobility of smart vehicles. In order to reduce the number of handovers, an ILP formulation has also been proposed. Finally, we discuss a framework for repelling wild animals in the agricultural fields using fog computing.
