Dr. Thanasis Poulakidas from RID Department of INTRASOFT International participated in a panel discussion at the 2018 IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications on 22 March.

The discussion took the form of an intense debate on the scope of this conference. Dr. Poulakidas noted, among other, the importance of systems and engineering for this conference, especially in this era where great contributions come by experimenting with big data and where conferences like this should balance the companies’ trend to create silos.

IEEE PerCom, now in its sixteenth year, is established as the premier annual scholarly venue in the areas of pervasive computing and communications. The conference was held in Athens, Greece, on 19-23 March 2018. For more information, please visit Percom’s official website.
