Advances in IoT Architecture and Systems

June 25, 2017, Toronto, Canada | Workshop co-located with ISCA 2017

Dr. Jeffrey D. Tew

Keynote Speaker

Dr. Tew is the Director of TCS Digital Manufacturing and Operations Innovation Program and is also the Chief Scientist for the TCS Innovation Lab in Cincinnati, OH whose focus is leading and developing TCS’s Supply Chain Research and Innovation activities globally. Dr. Tew has over 15 U.S. Patents awarded , numerous invited presentations at leading professional organizations throughout the world as well as leading universities. He has published over 65 archival journal publications on various topics related to SCM and Manufacturing. Dr. Tew received all of his degrees from Purdue University; BA (Mathematics 1979), MS (Statistics 1981), and Ph.D. (Operations Research 1986).

Internet-of-Things (IoT) is poised for a disruptive growth in near future where a wide variety of resources will be connected to the Internet. An IoT system will be the biggest connected system the human race has ever built. The system has to be open to support any future devices which may wish to connect to the system, which will be huge in size, supporting trillions of devices, millions of human users and transporting data of several magnitudes more than that of today’s Internet.

The broader vision of IoT encompasses all types of domains. Domain or a use-case has profound effect on the architectural decisions. Applications which will be hosted on such a platform will have diverse requirements. The architecture has to support various data and computation requirements, because many of these application are time critical. There are already examples of extreme types of applications, applications which are periodic in nature with diverse periodicity (eg. Reminders for pills, bus/train movements, periodic health checkup), applications which are highly aperiodic (investment on a stock, evacuation for emergency) again with diverse aperiodic distributions. Moreover, data volume requirements for different applications are also diverse. It may be difficult, if not impossible, to design an architecture which is generic enough across domains.

The purpose of the workshop is to solidify this research area and community. The long term aim is to bring together academic researchers and industry practitioners in this field to discuss the current state of research, common problems, discover new opportunities for collaboration, exchange ideas, and envision new areas of research, applications, and approaches.
