Room: Reno I
T1: Advances in Home Networking
Standardization and Related Research
Instructor: Frank den Hartog
(TNO, Netherlands)
Sometimes, the worlds of standardization and academic research
seem far apart. However, home networking scientists and developers
need to understand in which context their technology is expected to
operate, in order to optimize the chance that their products will
co-exist and interoperate with other systems in the consumer space.
The focus of the tutorial will be on the role of standardization in the
home networking field, how it works, what the main forces are, and
why it is so opaque and complex. This will be illustrated in the light
of current trends: the introduction of ICT from new domains (energy,
health, …) and the need for convergence and interoperability with
ICT from established domains (telecom, consumer electronics,
Internet). The second part of the tutorial will discuss the current
status in home networking standardization: “official” bodies such as
IEEE, ETSI, ISO/IEC, CENELEC, ITU, but also industry initiatives such
as IETF, HGI, DLNA, UPnP Forum, Broadband Forum, Continua,
PUCC, ATIS, DVB, Enocean Alliance, OSGi, CECED, DLMS, Zigbee
Alliance, etc. The emphasis will be on the standards that are relevant
today, with a focus on new developments, such as IEEE-802.11ac
and -1905.1, DLNA CVP, UPnP-HEMS, -DMS, and -EHS, DECT ULE,
and G.hnem and G.phnt. The final hour will be spend on related
research questions: architectures for convergence, co-existence
issues, migration and scalability studies, etc.

Telecommunication has become an integrated part of people’s work
and life. In this tutorial, we aim to provide an overview of some
recent advances in technologies that enable more immersive
telecommunication applications. Key topics covered by this tutorial
include sound source localization from compact microphone arrays,
3D spatial sound and multi-channel echo cancellation, various
real-time video processing techniques for enhancing conferencing
experiences, and a few explorations on depth sensors in tele-
communication applications.

Touch of Genius – Script any Device with TouchDevelop
Chair: Arjmand Samuel
(Microsoft, USA)
TouchDevelop Web App is a development environment to create apps ON your tablet or smartphone. TouchDevelop has a predictive on-screen
code keyboard and a general-purpose touch-optimized programming language. Scripts written by using TouchDevelop can access data,
media, and sensors on the phone, tablet, and PC. Scripts can interact with cloud services, including storage, computing, and social networks.
TouchDevelop lets you quickly create fun games and useful tools.
In this workshop, you can bring your own device (iPad, iPhone, Android phone or tablet, Windows phone, tablet or laptop) and create scripts
to run on your device (we will have Windows Phones to borrow as well). We will have developers of TouchDevelop on hand to introduce you
to this new environment. You can work in a group, or alone, and towards the end of the day submit an entry to be judged by a panel of
distinguished judges. Winners take away cash prizes – now that is a Touch of Genius.
09:30 – 10:30: Tutorial: So what is TouchDevelop, and how can I use it? TouchDevelop Research Team
10:30 – 11:00: Coffee and form teams
11:00 – 16:00: Work on your projects and have lunch TouchDevelop Research Team on hand to answer any questions
16:00: Submit your TouchDevelop scripts
Finalists will be announced at the Conference Banquet!
