Receiving the ICSE'07 MIP Award, along with co-authors.

  1. Best Paper Award at IPSN 2015
    Our paper "Geo-referenced Proximity Detection of Wildlife with WildScope: Design and Characterization" received the Best Paper Award in the SPOTS track at the 14th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN 2015).
  2. Best Paper Award at SENSEAPP 2014
    Our paper "SensEH: From Simulation to Deployment of Energy Harvesting Wireless Sensor Networks" received the Best Paper Award at 9th IEEE International Workshop on Practical Issues in Building Sensor Network Applications (SENSEAPP).
  3. Best Demo Award at LCN 2012
    Csaba Kiraly and I received this award at the 37th IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN) for the demo of the system described in the paper "Where's the Mote? Ask the MoteHunter!", presented at SENSEAPP'12. The latter was actually itself a runner-up for the Best Paper Award.
  4. Mark Weiser Best Paper Award at PerCom 2012
    Our paper "What Does Model-driven Data Acquisition Really Achieve in Wireless Sensor Networks?" received the prestigious "Mark Weiser Award" at 10th IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communication (PerCom 2012). This year, the acceptance rate for full papers was 11%, out of more than 150 submissions.
  5. Best Paper Award at IPSN 2011
    Our paper "Is There Light at the Ends of the Tunnel? Wireless Sensor Networks for Adaptive Lighting in Road Tunnels" received the Best Paper Award in the SPOTS track at the 10th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN 2011). Check out also the Web page of the TRITon project.
  6. Best Paper Award at IPSN 2009
    Our paper "Monitoring Heritage Buildings with Wireless Sensor Networks: The Torre Aquila Deployment" received the Best Paper Award in the SPOTS track at the 8th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN 2009). At the website of our group, you can find additional information about this wireless sensor network deployment, including live data.
  7. Best Demo at SenSys 2007
    On November 9th, 2007 Luca Mottola and I received the Best Demo Award for the demo "Programming Wireless Sensor Networks with Logical Neighborhoods: A Road Tunnel Use Case" at the 5th ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (SenSys), the flagship conference on wireless sensor networks. More information here. Read more about our work on logical neighborhoods on the dedicated Web site.
  8. "Most Influential Paper from ICSE'97" at ICSE 2007
    On May 24th, 2007 I received at the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE'07), along with my co-authors Antonio Carzaniga and Giovanni Vigna, the Most Influential Paper from ICSE'97 Award for our paper Designing Distributed Applications with Mobile Code Paradigms". The paper was written 10 years ago, when the three of us were still Ph.D. students. Read the original paper as well as the retrospective one we wrote for the award.
