Agenda and brief notes from 15 June DIoT cluster meeting

We started by going over the capabilities matrix and talking about some current projects.

Then, Chandan talked about the iot festival.

1. Morshed, Chandan, Mohamed, and Lei + others who attended – perhaps you could give us a run-down of what happened? Any highlights/updates from the IoT world out there

Further funding opportunities: a. Alibaba research funding sources now accepting proposals: USD50K-100K for a one-year project, dateline 1st of July, multiple proposals from the same institution can be funded, there is an IoT edge computing topic mentioned - click on Research Area tab and then IoT, and download the description from: (past projects here: ) (there are also topics in ML) (maybe we could all write a proposal each? J Or try to write/lead a proposal if you have an idea (e.g., it could be an extension of your own paper or someone else’s work etc) and invite/orga…

Agenda and brief minutes for meeting on 1 June 2018

The Agenda was below but we ended up discussing some major themes for our cluster. Three major themes identified are: 
Blockchain for IoT: energy and food and other applications?Smart things and infrastructure: smart things, robotic things, etc smart cities, smart agriculture, etcData analytics for IoT: various applications, from health to others 
Mohamed will try to coordinate a Samsung grant proposal. 

Original agenda: :
1. Your proposal for Guest speakers? (update: Dr. Joseph Liu from Monash will talk about blockchain in July)
2. Forming research subgroups on topics you want to learn/develop - what do we want to be good at in IoT in the next 1-3 years? This could also relate to the DVCRs call for ideas (see attached word doc from DVCR as sent by Yong, I have also hosted it on )
3. Workshops/Hackathon hosted at Deakin with industry persons? E.g., “IoT for Health”, “IoT for Food” etc… which topic?

Telstra IoT challenge winners?

Arkady presented at the last meeting - 18 May 2018

Here comes Arkady's presentation at Deakin last Friday:

Title: Challenges and opportunities of IoT silos interoperability Abstract: After initial hype with deploying IoT platforms in various applications and building IoT silos, the IoT research community realised the need for IoT interoperability frameworks and building IoT ecosystems as the next step in IoT evolution. This talk will focus on the challenges and opportunities of IoT interoperability with highlights into OpenIoT platform which pioneered horizontal integration of IoT silos and EU Horizon-2020 project bIoTope – building IoT open innovation ecosystem for connected smart objects. The bIoTope ecosystem is based on everything-as-a-service (XaaS) driven by run-time context, reasoning about situations, semantics, continuous analytics. The primary application domain of biotope is Smart Cities. Bio: Professor Zaslavsky is a Senior Principal Research Scientist with D…

Meeting on 4 May 2018 - brief agenda and minutes

Several agreed to champion projects in certain domains like health, security, etc...
Funding for equipment still to actually arrive. 

0. Round-table – any ideas to share?
1. Please think of any upcoming invited speakers? Sofar: Dr. Joseph Liu (from Monash, on blockchain, likely in June/July) Prof. Arkady Zaslavsky (Data61, unsure when yet) Others(?)…
2. Please think about some ideas for the upcoming funding opportunities: Samsung Global outreach program: list of areas here:
Defence: Innovation proposal
Do you have any other ideas for funding?

3. Equipment – we aim to be setting up an IoT testbed ,partly, LoraWAN testbed…

From our last meeting on 23 March 2018

We discussed cluster goals briefly - a link to IoT cluster goals for 2018:

A few agenda items discussed at the meeting
   1. goals of the group for 2018: what do we want to achieve as a group?    the cluster report for 2017 is here    and some 2018 objectives are noted there (think of them as in draft form), but happy to hear your views (and we can rewrite that ☺)

   2. if you had $100K tp spend to build an IoT testbed, what would you buy?    We have an ARC LIEF grant awarded and money should come in a few months, Deakin’s share is $100K –    the objective of the grant is to build a multi-site distributed IoT testbed:    Title: “A Large-Scale Distributed Experimental Facility for the Internet of Things”    Aims:    “This project aims at establishing a large-scale, real-world experimental facility for the …
