ROOM A: 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM (Pacific Time Zone)

TUTORIAL: RFID as Ambient Data
Jeffrey DungenreelyActive

There are tens of billions of standard radio-identifiable things shipping annually in the form of RAIN RFID (passive) tags and Bluetooth Low Energy (active) transceivers. In any given physical space today, it is not uncommon to discover such radio-identifiable things, often in the tens and even hundreds. The opportunistic discovery, identification, location and interpretation of sensor data from these RFID devices represents ambient data, which affords computers the ability to make sense of the physical spaces they occupy. In this tutorial we’ll examine the collection and interpretation of ambient data from RFID, including the lookup of digital twins and the combination of data collected independently by co-located systems, leading to the concept of collective hyperlocal context

ROOM A: 10:30 AM to 12:00 AM (Pacific Time Zone) – 1:00 to 2:30 PM (Pacific Time Zone)

Workshop on Digital Spectrum Twinning
Organizers: Prof. Chris Anderson, United States Naval Academy, Prof. Gregory D. Durgin, Georgia Tech

This workshop explores the emerging field of Digital Twins and its applicability to modeling and monitoring radio spectrum.  With invited expertise from the fields of manufacturing and logistics, we explore the concept of digital spectrum twinning – maintaining updated, cloud-based databases of radio spectrum usage to enable spectrum sharing, location-based services, network optimization, spectrum valuation, new technology development, and other applications.

ROOM B: 10:30 AM to 12:00 AM (Pacific Time Zone) – 1:00 to 2:30 PM (Pacific Time Zone)

Workshop on Workshop on Wireless Motion Capture & Localization
Organizers: Cheng Qi (Cognosos), Andrea Motroni (University of Pisa)

This workshop will host researchers and engineers interested in the emerging technologies and applications for wireless motion capture and fine-scale wireless localization. Workshop presentations will explore technical issues relevant to new wireless motion capture, fine-scale localization, gesture recognition, tomography, and related technologies.

3:00 AM to 4:00 AM (Pacific Time Zone) Roundtables, Peer2Peer
