INCAPS – 2nd Indo-Norway Workshop on Smart Sensing, Communication and Machine Learning for Autonomous and Cyber Physical Systems (IN-SSCOM) 14-16 October 2022

INCAPS – 2nd Indo-Norway Workshop on Smart Sensing, Communication and Machine Learning for Autonomous and Cyber Physical Systems (IN-SSCOM) from Oct 14, 2022 to Oct 16, 2022 (3 day workshop) is organized at Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad (IITH) in Hybrid mode. This workshop is an outcome of the multiple ongoing collaborations between Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad (IITH), India, and University of Agder (UiA), Norway. This includes the Department of Science and Technology (International Bilateral Cooperation Division), Government of India and the Norwegian Research council funded project, Low Altitude UAV Communication and Tracking (LUCAT), and the Norwegian Research council and the Diku (the Norwegian agency for international cooperation and quality enhancement in higher education) funded project, the Indo-Norwegian collaboration in Autonomous Cyber-Physical Systems (INCAPS). There exists an MoU between IITH and UiA to further promote this research and collaboration. Through IN-SSCOM 2022, we aim to bring together researchers, industries, and practitioners to present and discuss their latest achievements and innovations in the areas of Smart Sensing, Communications and Machine Learning for Autonomous Cyber-Physical Systems. The workshop will be an experience sharing forum and we expect to attract a good mix of academic, industry researchers, practitioners, and students working in this area.

The Indo-Norwegian collaboration in Autonomous Cyber-Physical Systems (INCAPS) aims to establish long-term collaboration between highly reputed Indian universities which include Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad (IITH), International Institute of Information Technology Hyderabad (IIITH) and Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Hyderabad and Norwegian universities, University of Agder (UiA), Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA) in world-class research and education. INCAPS considers broad areas of research which include smart sensing for autonomous cyber physical systems, mmWave sensor-based system design, de-centralized wireless communications, in-network processing and intelligence for heterogeneous wireless sensor and communication networks, machine learning and deep learning for autonomous systems, data analytics, energy harvesting based smart electronic systems, smart water networks and inference methods for timely detection and prediction, cognitive control and adaptive learning in autonomous cyber-physical systems.

The key objectives of the INCAPS project are to: I). Strengthen collaborative network between industry (both public and private enterprises, small and medium-sized enterprises, and multi-national companies) and academia. II). Increased value creation and enhanced innovation by using smart sensing, machine, and deep learning techniques in autonomous cyber-physical systems. III). Facilitate education and knowledge sharing through better mobility for students and researchers. IV). Create an arena for the generation of research and innovation projects. V). Increased utilization of research and educational infrastructure both in Norway and India. VI). Integrate professionals from industries and academics through workshops, seminars, webinars, and summer/winter schools.
