IEEE MASS is a premier, annual forum for sharing original, novel ideas in mobile ad hoc networks and wireless sensor networks, defined broadly.
Continuing this tradition, the 15th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad hoc and Sensor Systems (MASS) will be held in Chengdu, China, on Oct. 9-12, 2018. Wireless ad hoc communications, Internet of Things, and mobile computing are increasingly being used in civilian and military applications in homes and businesses, cities and rural areas, sea and space. Wireless sensor and actuator networks are being widely deployed for enhancing industrial processes and management, for various forms of environmental monitoring and control, and for improving quality of life.
Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, IEEE MASS 2018 aims at bringing together researchers, developers, and practitioners to address recent advances in mobile ad-hoc and sensor-actuator systems, covering algorithms, theories, systems, protocols, applications, experiments, and testbeds.

Title: Integration of Mechanism and Data Driven Models for Optimization and Security Analysis of Cyber-physical Energy Systems:
Cyber-physical system is the basis for Industry 4.0, Made in China 2025, and other ambitious plans. Growing energy demand and environmental concerns requires a large number of renewable energy resources, efficient energy consumption, and energy storage devices and demand response. Cyber-physical energy system (CPES) in a broader sense provides a desirable infrastructure for efficient energy production and consumption with uncertain energy resources.
Big data in energy production and consumption is basis for dealing with the challenges in CPES design and operation. This speech will focus on the information structure of CPES, sensing and analysis of dynamic information of multiple energy media, and security constrained planning and scheduling of CPES including new renewable energy sources and demands of energy intensive enterprises with high uncertainties based on the integration mechanism and data driven models.
Professor Xiaohong Guan received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Control Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1982 and 1985, respectively, and his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Systems Engineering from the University of Connecticut in 1993. He was a senior consulting engineer with Pacific Gas and Electric from 1993 to 1995. He visited the Division of Engineering and Applied Science, Harvard University from Jan. 1999 to Feb. 2000. From 1985 to 1988 and since 1995 he has been with the Systems Engineering Institute at Xian Jiaotong University, Xian, China, and was appointed as the Cheung Kong Professor of Systems Engineering in 1999, and Dean of School of Electronic and Information Engineering since 2008. From 2001 he has also been with the Center for Intelligent and Networked Systems, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, and severed the Head of Department of Automation, Tsinghua University, 2003-2008.
Professor Guan is a member of Chinese Academy of Science and IEEE Fellow. He has been serving the Editor of IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid since 2014. His research interests include economics and security of networked systems, optimization based planning and scheduling of electrical power and energy systems, manufacturing systems, etc., and cyber-physical systems including smart grid, sensor networks, etc.

Title: Integrating Edge Computing with Next-Generation Mobile Networks
This talk examines technology and system design challenges of integrating edge clouds with next-generation mobile networks. The emergence of ultra-high bandwidth wireless access technologies associated with 5G and beyond will soon make it feasible to deploy an edge computing infrastructure for the purpose of supporting latency constrained mobility applications such as augmented reality enhanced personal navigation or cloud-assisted self-driving. In contrast to conventional data centers which benefit from large-scale resource aggregation over managed facilities with centralized control, the edge cloud scenario is characterized by distributed and heterogeneous computing resources, variable network connectivity, user mobility and fluctuating traffic load. The general design challenge of edge clouds is identified as a cross-layer distributed resource allocation and orchestration problem that cuts across both networking and computing layers. Specific system design approaches are discussed, including centralized approaches based on SDN controllers as well as distributed ones which use virtual networks and application-specific routing. Preliminary evaluation results are given for candidate designs applied to an edge cloud scenario with latency sensitive applications running on mobile devices. The talk concludes with a brief outline of the new COSMOS testbed being developed jointly by Rutgers, Columbia and NYU under NSF’s recently announced Platforms for Advanced Wireless (PAWR) program. The COSMOS testbed has a particular focus on ultra-high bandwidth and low latency communication tightly integrated with edge computing, and will thus provide a suitable platform for real-world evaluation of future mobile edge cloud services.

Title: Connected and Autonomous Vehicles: The Next Frontier
Connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) will bring about many transformative changes,not only to our transportation systems, but also to our cities and society as a whole.Many traditional automotive makers and IT companies as well as startups are working on CAVs with little or no government or state oversights when it comes to safety standards. This talk will focus on our work related to the testing and evaluation of CAVs, and also touch upon other research and applications related to CAVs and smart cities.

What Visa do you need?
Chinese visa is a permit issued to a foreigner by the Chinese visa authorities for entry into, exit from or transit through the Chinese territory. The Chinese visa authorities may issue a diplomatic, courtesy, service or ordinary visa to a foreigner according to his identity, purpose of visit to China and passport type. Your case falls into the ordinary visas which consist of eight sub-categories, marked with Chinese phonetic letters, D, Z, X, F, L, G, C, J-1 and J-2 respectively.
Visa F: Issued to an applicant who is invited to China on a visit, on a study or lecture, business tour, for scientific-technological and cultural exchanges, for short-term refresher course or for job-training, for a period of no more than six months. To apply for a Visa F, the invitation letter from the inviting unit or the visa notification letter/telegram from the authorized unit is required.
Visa L: Issued to aliens who come to China for sightseeing, visiting relatives or other private purposes. For a tourist applicant, in principle he shall evidence his financial capability of covering the travelling expenses in China, and when necessary, provide the air, train or ship tickets to the heading country/region after leaving China. For the applicants who come to China to visit relatives, some are required to provide invitation letters from their relatives in China.
