Irish National IPv6 Centre talk

<a title="Irish National IPv6 Centre talk" “IPv6 in Singapore” & “Ad Hoc Sensor Networks”
Wednesday 17th October @ 15:00 – 17:00
Room G18, Nursing Building, Cork Road Campus
Dr. Winston Seah
Senior scientist in the Network Technology Department at
Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R) Singapore
Presentation 1: Status of IPv6 in Singapore
This talk will provide an overview of the past, current and future efforts put into the development and deployment of IPv6 in Singapore. It will briefly highlight the past research/technical work done, current ongoing efforts to encourage the deployment of IPv6 and the problems faced.
Presentation 2: Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks Research in the
Institute for Infocomm Research This seminar will first give an overview of the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), Singapore and the research conducted in the Networking Protocols department in general. Following which, the talk will discuss two specific areas of research:
1. Wireless sensor networks for structural monitoring and smart buildings – we focus on the exciting application domain for wireless sensor networks and its significance in our future pervasive and trusted network infrastructure. A key research issue is the effect on the design *of protocols and algorithms when relying on ambient energy harvesting techniques for power.
2. Underwater ad hoc and sensor networks – we focus on the salient
features of underwater networks and how they influence the design of networking protocols. A brief overview of novel network architectures and protocols for underwater networks will also be presented.
