The 2nd ACM International Conference on Nanoscale Computing and Communication (NanoCom) was held in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, on the 21st and 22nd of September, 2015. The aim of the conference was to bring together researchers from diverse areas to increase the visibility of this emerging research area and encourage them to develop communication and computing paradigms at the nanoscale.
Kriti Bhargava, a PhD student at the Waterford Institute of Technology’s Telecommunication Software and Systems Group (TSSG) is the main author of the paper titled ‘Internet of Nano Things for Dairy Farming’. The paper discusses the feasibility of using Internet of Nano Things in a dairy farming scenario along with the challenges and benefits associated with its deployment. The paper was accepted under the ‘Work-in-Progress’ session of the ACM NanoCom 2015 conference (to be published by ACM).
The conference had a total of 7 sessions where authors of the accepted papers presented their work on Molecular and Nano-Electro Magnetic communications. Three keynote speeches were also presented at the conference, Rahul Sarpeshkar on ‘Analog and Stochastic Computation in Living Cells and Supercomputing Chips’, Peng Yin on ‘Molecular programming with DNA/RNA’ and Nader Engheta on ‘Let the Waves Do the Math!’
Kriti Bhargava who presented TSSG’s paper at the conference commented “I am extremely grateful to my supervisors and TSSG for giving me the opportunity to present our work at NanoCom 2015. Being my first experience at an international conference, I was thrilled to meet the leading researchers in this area. My interactions with other participants helped me gain deeper insights in the nano communication field. The keynote speeches, in particular, were very inspiring.”
