Welcome to RecoSoC'2014!

Over the past decade ReCoSoC has established itself as a reference international event for research in the areas of reconfigurable and communication-centric systems-on-chip. Its informal and dynamic philosophy encourages technical and scientific interactions of both academic and industrial participants through presentations and special sessions reporting latest advances in the related areas.

ReCoSoC'2014 will be held in Montpellier, France.

All accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore. In addition authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended versions of their papers for publication in special issue of a journal to be announced at a later point in time.

Keynote 1

Andres Perez-Uribe

Andres Perez-Uribe was appointed professor of Computer Science at the University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland in 2003. He received a PhD degree in computer science from the EPFL in 1999 after completing his thesis on "Structure-adaptable Digital Neural Networks". From 1999 to 2003, he pursued research work in the domains of bio-inspired systems and collective robotics at the University of Fribourg, University of Lausanne and EPFL. Last but not least, he worked part-time at a start-up company called AIBITS at the Science Park of EPFL. He was deputy coordinator of the FP6 PERPLEXUS project and principal investigator of several national and international projects. His current research concerns the use of Machine Learning techniques, in particular dealing with sensor data.

Keynote 2

Roberto Minerva

Roberto Minerva, has a Master Degree in Computer Science from Bari University, Italy, and a Ph.D in computer Science and Telecommunications from Telecom Sud Paris, France.
Roberto is the head of Innovative Architectures group within the Future Centre in the Strategy Department of Telecom Italia. His job is to create advanced scenarios derived from the application of emerging ICT technologies with innovative business models especially in the area of IoT, distributed computing, programmable networks and personal data.

He held many responsibilities within Telecom Italia Lab: Network Intelligence, Wireless Architecture and Business Services Area Manager. Roberto is also a contract Professor at Turin’s Polytechnics teaching a course on mobile services. He is the Chairperson of the IOT workgroup within IEEE’s FDC.

Since 1987 he has been involved in the development of Service Architectures for Telecom (TINA, OSA/Parlay and SIP), in activities related to IMS, and in the definition of services for the Business market (context-awareness, ambient intelligence and automotive). More recently his contribution is in the area of new architectures for the service provision with particular attention to data centric and user centric solutions. Under this perspective he is currently involved in Telecom Italia activities related to highly distributed architectures with particular reference to Big Data, Personal Data, Internet of Things, Software Defined Networking, Self Organizing Networks, Smart Environments and ICT technologies for leveraging Cultural Heritage.
Roberto is authors of several papers published in international conferences, books and magazine.

Special Session on Internet of Things

Nathalie Mitton
Titre: Wireless sensor networks and Internet of things : the new challenges
Abstract: Internet of things is now everywhere, in particular through wireless sensors. This allows new applications and pushes backs the limits of the possible. But sensors are tiny hardware and energy constrained objects that raise a lot of new challenges. During this talk we will review some of these challenges and some of the possible solutions and tools to take them up.

Dr Nathalie Mitton received the MSc and PhD. degrees in Computer Science from INSALyon in 2003 and 2006 respectively. She received her Habilitation à diriger des recherches(HDR) in 2011 from Université Lille 1. She is currently an Inria full researcher since 2006 and from 2012, she is the scientific head of the Inria FUN team which is focused on small computing deviceslike electronic tags and sensor networks. Her research interests are mainly focused on self-organization, self-stabilization, energy efficient routing and neighbor discovery algorithms for wireless sensor networks as well as RFID middlewares.

She is involved in the set up ofthe SensLAB ( and FIT platforms ( and in several program and organization committees such as HPCC 2014, WiMob 2013, MASS 2012 & 2011, LoGASN 2012 , WPMC2012 , IST-AWSN 2012, iThings 2012, Comnet-iot 2012, etc. She also supervises several PhD students and engineers.

Olivier Carmona

Olivier is working in the corporate head office of AwoX, a leader in home network technologies for consumer electronics and customer premise equipment. In his capacity with AwoX, Olivier is responsible for the business development, as well as for definition and implementation of the Intellectual Property policy including representation in standard bodies. Olivier holds a MSc from Centrale Marseille with specialization in artificial intelligence at Université Paul Sabatier and parallel computing at ENSEEIHT, both in 1994. After completing his civil service at CERN, Olivier led several research efforts in mobile robotics at EPFL from 1996 to 1999, before joining and then leading starting from 2001 K-Team, a Swiss mobile robotics company, spin-off from EPFL. Olivier joined AwoX in 2005 and was appointed Director of Technical Marketing at AwoX in April 2008.
