PS PhD Students receive 3 Best Paper Awards in Summer 2014 
In the last few weeks the Pervasive Systems group (EWI/PS) achieved a remarkable record: three (!) papers received the best paper award at three different conferences!

On 27 August 2014, the paper ďOnline Change Detection for Energy-Efficient Mobile Crowdsensing", presented at the 11th International Conference on Mobile Web Information Systems (MobiWIS 2014) in Barcelona, Spain, won the best paper award. The paperís authors are: Le Viet Duc, Hans Scholten, and Paul Havinga. The conference is a well-established conference in the domain of Mobile Information Systems, with over 400 visitors. The research presented in this paper is funded by the Dutch SenSafety project. The paper addresses a fundamental new approach in opportunistic sensing with smart phones. The paper was in particular praised because it enables new interactive sensor enabled apps to run efficiently.

On 13 September 2014, the paper ďAn Efficient Water Flow Control Approach for Water Heaters in Direct Load Control", presented at the 1st International Conference on Engineering, Science, and Technology Innovation in Bali, Indonesia, won the best paper award. The paper deals with a new optimization approach for energy-efficient appliances in homes. The paperís authors are: Alexander Belov, Nirvana Meratnia, Berend Jan van der Zwaag, and Paul Havinga. The research presented in this paper is funded by the Dutch Go-Green project that deals with energy-efficient homes. The award came with a certificate and a money prize of 1.000.000 IDR.

On 19 September 2014, the paper ďA distributed Management scheme for supporting Energy-harvested I/O devicesĒ, presented at the 19th IEEE International Conference on Emerging Technologies and Factory Automation (ETFA'2014) in Barcelona, Spain, won the best paper award. ETFA is the flagship conference on industrial and factory automation, and attracts a large number of visitors (this year more than 800), both from industry and academia. The research presented in the paper is funded by the European project WiBRATE. The paper presents a novel distributed scheme for industrial wireless networks (ISA100) that enables energy-harvested sensor and actuator devices to use the wireless network effectively. The paperís authors are: Pouria Zand, Kallol Das, Emi Matthews, and Paul Havinga.

Telepresence at Ubicomp 2014 using beam robots 
On 16 September, Mitra Baratchi presented her full paper "A Hierarchical Hidden Semi-Markov Model for Modeling Mobility Data" at Ubicomp 2014 in Seattle. Mitra was one of the first few telepresence attendees who used beam robots to participate in the conference. This was a unique experience where she could move around in conference sessions, and talk to other researchers using the beam.

WiBRATE Summer School 
The 3-days summer school on "Cyber Physical Systems for Industrial Applications: Wireless self-powered vibration monitoring and control" organized by the FP7 project WIBRATE was held on 8-10 September 2014 in Lugano Switzerland. Starting from case studies provided by Centro Ricerche FIAT, Honeywell, Perpetuum and Siemens the summer school introduced participants to theoretical approaches and practical aspects of industrial Cyber Physical Systems solutions design. Typical industrial issues such as wireless communication, energy harvesting and vibration analysis, monitoring and control have been addressed. The Coordinator of the WiBRATE project, Prof. Paul Havinga, served as the Scientific Coordinator of the Summer School.
