The Internet of Things (IoT) describes a network of physical objects – ‘things’ – that are embedded with sensors,
software, and other technologies to connect and exchange data with other devices and systems over the internet.
Over the past few years, IoT has become one of the most important technologies of the 21st century, where IoT
touches everything and everything has IoT. Given the high demand in the area and future potential, the objective of
this half-day tutorial is to provide the fundamental theory and practical knowledge required to develop and deploy
real-world IoT solutions for modern-day use cases.
Introduction to IoT
Common IoT sensors, their operation and interpreting specification sheets
Embedded software and hardware platforms related to IoT
Communication, networking, and cloud-based aspects of an IoT
Building a simple IoT system and deploying it in real-world
Final remarks and open research problems in this area
This tutorial mainly targets attendees new to the field of IoT. Therefore, we believe that students, researchers, and
practitioners from the respective fields of study would be highly benefited from this tutorial.

Title : Software Reliability Detection and Mitigation in Distributed Platforms
of February 2023
5.00 PM - 8.00 PM
Software reliability engineering is a well established branch of study. With the
advent of scalable distributed platforms, reliable service delivery with less failure rates are
highly demanded. Failure detection, recovery and mitigation mechanisms are sought after to
help the developers to create more reliable products/services and for the users to enjoy the
products/services seamlessly. This tutorial aims to discuss the approaches in software failure
recovery and mitigation considering the stand alone and the cloud based distributed systems
considering dependencies on resources, platforms and networks. Outcome of this
discussion is to share the insights related to the recent advancements in software reliability
Anybody interested in reliability engineering and chaos engineering. Preferably with a general background on science, engineering and technology.
