Title: OPTIMAL DESIGN OF DISTRIBUTED SENSOR NETWORKS FOR FIELD RECONSTRUCTION
Departamento de Engenharia Informática –
Abstract: This talk introduces a method to design a distributed sensor network for field reconstruction that is minimal with respect to a communication cost function. This cost function is given by the sum of communication between sensors and that of a subset of sensors used for backbone communication.
To achieve this goal, we want to create an observable distributed sensor network, where through the (at most the number of sensors) measurements collected by the central authority, the central authority can recover the initial parameters at different sensors location. To achieve this goal, we need to first decide which sensors should communicate and after design the weights by which each sensor should update their states with those of its neighbors, in other words, the distributed sensor network dynamics. In addition, we need to identify a subset of sensors that can report their state to a central location, corresponding to the design of the backbone
reporting function. The joint design of the sensor network dynamics and the backbone reporting function to recover the initial state of the dynamic system justifies the notion of an observable distributed sensor network.
We show an efficient algorithm for designing the optimal observable distributed sensor network
for a given set of sensors and cost function, providing an illustrative example.

Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
The program and more details are available here.
