Title: IoT and CPS two worlds growing together: The embedded software point of view.
CPS and IoT are growing together. Autonomous vehicles are probably the best example. The car as a CPS will communicate or even be part of an IoT environment enriching environment knowledge and optimizing the CPS control. However new innovations come with new challenges. In this talk I will focus on different challenges in the distributed embedded software context. More specifically I will talk about:
Peter Hellinckx is an Assistant Professor at the University of Antwerp, currently teaching the 3rd year bachelor courses 5-Distributed Computing, 6-Advanced Programming techniques and the master courses II-Internet of Things:Distributed embedded software and Computer graphics, Master thesis in the faculty of Applied Engineering. He is currently head of the department Electronics-ICT and the head of the Post Graduate in Internet of Things. He obtained his Master in Computer Science and his Ph.D. in Science both from the University of Antwerp in 2002 and 2008 respectively. His master thesis acted on the interpretation of 2D sketches. His Ph.D. was titled "The evolution towards Desktop Grid systems, problems and solutions". He is co-founder of two spin-off companies. HI10 bvba: focussing on cloud security; HYSOPT NV. focussing on HVAC installation design, simulation and optimization cloud software. He is MC member of the TaCLE cost action, chair of the DEM workshops and IEEE member. His research is currently focussing on embedded virtualization, real-time scheduling, Distributed Artificial intelligence, Simulation and software for heterogeneous distributed systems with different constraints in CPS and IoT. In the context of embedded virtualization and real-time scheduling he works on static and dynamic schedulability analysis for periodic and aperiodic tasks in real-time and hierarchical real-time scheduling using WCET and stochastic execution time approaches. In the context of heterogeneous distributed systems he focuses on the impact of environmental/user constraints on software architecture and communication methodologies in heterogeneous distributed systems (IoT/CPS/cloud) both in real/simulated and hybrid environments. In the context of distributed Artificial intelligence his focus lies on the application layer more specifically on sensor fusion, model abstraction and unreliable data.

Title: Centralised eHealth national wide concept to reduce the complexity if integration
Abstract: Implementation of e-solution in the field of health care is the must in order to achieve the efficiency, quality of care and implementation of new methods for care provisioning. All subsystems and points of care have to communicate with EHR silos, central and local applications and it underlines of importance of proper protocols, data format and integration issues, as well the importance of proper project management for testing and delivery in real time conditions of cloud and infrastructure. All this effort is essential in order to ensure the wide portfolio o benefits for all grouped of health care stakeholders and for delivery the future application in e/commerce and m/commerce environment
