FIREMAN is organizing the first workshop on Communication and Networking Algorithms for Cyber-Physical Systems in Industry 4.0 collocated with IEEE PIMRC'20 (Aug 31st) in London, UK. We expect contributions related to industrial applications with particular focus on: large data acquisition and transmission, big data fusion and big data analytics.

  • Submission Deadline: 24 April 2020 8 May 2020 (via edas - )
  • Confirmed keynotes: Walid Saad (VT), Raul Palacios (SEAT) and Majid Butt (Nokia Bell Labs) with follow-up discussions
  • Workshop with a digital twin: Due to uncertainties related to COVID-19, we are planning the workshop to be also virtual.
    • All participants (incl. keynotes) will be strongly encouraged to make a video/presentation available via our website with discussion forum.
    • More details at a later stage when the conference gets closer.

We are looking forward to have several high-level papers and discussions to strengthen the still weak link between specialists in communications and the actual industrial communication needs, indicating more efficient solutions!

Workshop Organizers:

  • Pedro H. J. Nardelli, LUT University, Finland, Pedro.Nardelli [at] lut [dot] fi
  • Nicola Marchetti, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, nicola.marchetti [at] tcd [dot] ie
  • Constantinos Papadias, American College of Greece, Greece, cpapadias [at] acg [dot] edu

FIREMAN consortium will participate in the forthcoming CHIST-ERA Projects Seminar organized in Prague on the 21-22 of April 2020. The seminar brings together researchers involved in the ongoing CHIST-ERA funded projects and representatives of the research funding organizations. In the context of the seminar, a F2F project meeting will be held on 20th of April.


Two FIREMAN researchers were recently awarded prestigious grants.

On December 2019, Dick Carrillo-Melgarejo (LUT) was awarded a 5K€ research grant from the Nokia Foundation for his research towards improving the design of wireless communication systems for energy systems and industrial automation. More information can be found here.
On February 2020, Daniel Gutierrez Rojas (LUT) was awarded a 3K€ research grant from the HPY Research Foundation for his research towards adaptive protection and fault detection in electricity grids based on 5G wireless communication.
Congratulations to you both!

FIREMAN project coordinator, Pedro Nardelli, participated in the EU-US Frontiers of Engineering symposium, held on November 18-20 in Stockholm, Sweden.

About 60 outstanding engineers under the age of 45 met for an intensive 2-1/2 day symposium to discuss cutting-edge developments in four areas: 5G and Internet of Things, Materials Engineering Enabled by Advances in Imaging, Systems Approaches to a Clean Environment, and Smart Manufacturing. The event facilitates international and cross-disciplinary research collaboration, promotes the transfer of new techniques and approaches across disparate engineering fields, and encourages the creation of a transatlantic network of world-class engineers.
