Descrizione Corso

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a loosely coupled, decentralized and dynamic ecosystem in which billions of self-steering Smart Objects (SOs) are globally interconnected becoming active participants in business, logistics, information and social processes. Due to the heterogeneity and complexity featuring IoT building blocks, the development of massive scaled and actually interoperable IoT systems is a challenging task, featured by several requirements and novel, even un-surveyed, issues. In this context, a multidisciplinary and systematic development approach is necessary, especially to involve different fields of expertise for coping with the cyber-physical nature of IoT ecosystem. Henceforth, comprehensive IoT methodologies are gaining traction, aiming at systematically supporting all development phases, addressing mentioned issues, and reducing time-to-market, efforts and probability of failure.

In this course, we will introduce IoT ecosystems and comprehensive development approaches to support their main engineering phases. Starting from the systematic identification of the fundamental IoT development requirements and properties, we will present models, standards, techniques and guidelines to fully supports the development of IoT ecosystems, from the analysis to the design and finally implementation phase. Moreover, we also discuss  connections between the development of IoT ecosystems and some topical subjects like IoT Services, Interoperability, Cloud and Edge Computing. Specifically, the course will focus on ACOSO-Meth (Agent-based COoperating Smart Objects Methodology) to provide students with theoretical and practical tools for the development of “their” example IoT systems and related services.

Short Bio

Prof. Giancarlo Fortino is Full Professor of Computer Engineering at the Dept. of Informatics, Modeling, Electronics, and Systems of the University of Calabria (Unical), Italy. He received a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Unical in 2000. He is also guest professor at Wuhan University of Technology (Wuhan, China), high-end expert at HUST (China), and senior research fellow at the Italian National Research Council ICAR Institute. He is the director of the SPEME lab at Unical as well as co-chair of Joint labs on IoT established between Unical and WUT and SMU Chinese universities, respectively. His research interests include agent-based computing, wireless (body) sensor networks, and Internet of Things. He is author of over 400 papers in int’l journals, conferences and books. He is (founding) series editor of IEEE Press Book Series on Human-Machine Systems and EiC of Springer Internet of Things series and AE of many int’l journals such as IEEE TAC, IEEE THMS, IEEE IoTJ, IEEE SJ, IEEE SMCM, Information Fusion, JNCA, EAAI, etc. He is cofounder and CEO of SenSysCal S.r.l., a Unical spinoff focused on innovative IoT systems. Fortino is currently member of the IEEE SMCS BoG and of the IEEE Press BoG, and chair of the IEEE SMCS Italian Chapter.

Dr. Claudio Savaglio is a postdoctoral researcher at the Dept. of Informatics, Modeling, Electronics and Systems (DIMES) of the University of Calabria, where he has received a Ph.D. in Information and Communication Technology. His research interests include autonomic and cognitive Internet of Things Systems, cyber-physical networks, Edge Computing, and Agent-oriented middleware and development methodologies. Since 2013, he has international collaborations with University of Texas and New Jersey Institute of Technology, USA, and with Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain.
