About The Institute:

Modern College of Professional Studies is located in the Anand Industrial estate, Mohan Nagar of the Ghaziabad District of Uttar Pradesh. It is a co-education college affiliated to the Chaudhary Charan Singh University, Meerut.

The College came into existence in 2003 through the initiative taken by a group of eminent academicians and social activists who recognized the importance of higher education in the development of the State.

MCPS is committed to empowering youth to think independently, to understand the complexities and challenges of today‘s life and transform them into opportunities, to set benchmarks for others and finally to epitomize the change they seek to bring in the world and like torchbearers, lead it towards a brighter future. Upholding the noble traditions were laid down by the founders, the institution surges ahead towards excellence.

About National Conference:

National Conference on IoT: An Era of Digitalization (IoT-EoD-2017), aims at promoting high quality research by bringing together community of researchers and practitioners from academia and industry. It is a forum to communicate and discuss various research findings and innovations in digitalization and IoT. These emerging areas provide great scope for research and will help to address several challenges in future. This conference will provide opportunities for the researchers to exchange innovative ideas and establish research relations worldwide. The technical sessions of the conference will consist of key-note addresses and original contributory papers reporting theoretical and experimental research, development, design, testing in two tracks namely Internet of Things (IOT) and Digitalization.

Internet of Things: Pervasive connectivity, smart devices and demand for data testify to an Internet of Things that will continue to grow by leaps and bounds. Instrumenting and connecting devices has massive potential to deliver value, but there is need for a coordinated effort when rolling out the next generation of self-reporting paradigms. This conference aims at bringing together researchers to share, discuss and witness cutting edge research in all areas of development on IoT.

Concept Note:

National Conference is focused on Internet of Things: An Era of Digitalization.

The Internet of Things is a hot topic of technical, social, and economic significance. Consumer products, durable goods, cars and trucks, industrial and utility components, sensors, and other everyday objects are being mutual with Internet connectivity and powerful data analytic capabilities that promise to transform the way we work, live, and play. Projections for the impact of IoT on the Internet and economy are extraordinary, with some anticipating as many as 100 billion connected IoT devices and a global economic impact.

At the same time, however, the Internet of Things raises significant challenges that could stand in the way of realizing its potential benefits. Attention-grabbing headlines about the hacking of Internet-connected devices, surveillance concerns, and privacy fears already have captured public attention. Technical challenges remain and new policy, legal and development challenges are emerging.

The Internet of Things engages a broad set of ideas that are complex and intertwined from different perspectives. Key concepts that serve as a foundation for exploring the opportunities and challenges of IoT include:

IoT Definitions:

The term Internet of Things generally refers to scenarios where network connectivity and computing capability extends to objects, sensors and everyday items not normally considered computers, allowing these devices to generate, exchange and consume data with minimal human intervention. There is, however, no single, universal definition.

Enabling Technologies:

The concept of combining computers, sensors, and networks to monitor and control devices has existed for decades. The recent confluence of several technology market trends, however, is bringing the Internet of Things closer to widespread reality. These include Ubiquitous Connectivity, Widespread Adoption of IP-based Networking, Computing Economics, Miniaturization, Advances in Data Analytics, and the Rise of Cloud Computing.

Connectivity Models:

IoT implementations use different technical communications models, each with its own characteristics. Four common communications models described by the Internet Architecture Board include: Device-to-Device, Device-to-Cloud, Device-to-Gateway, and Back-End Data-Sharing. These models highlight the flexibility in the ways that IoT devices can connect and provide value to the user.

Transformational Potential:

If the projections and trends towards IoT become reality, it may force a shift in thinking about the implications and issues in a world where the most common interaction with the Internet comes from passive engagement with connected objects rather than active engagement with content. The potential realization of this outcome – a “hyperconnected world” -- is testament to the general-purpose nature of the Internet architecture itself, which does not place inherent limitations on the applications or services that can make use of the technology.

Five key IoT issue areas are examined to explore some of the most pressing challenges and questions related to the technology. These include security; privacy; interoperability and standards; legal, regulatory, and rights; and emerging economies and development.

Security

While security considerations are not new in the context of information technology, the attributes of many IoT implementations present new and unique security challenges. Addressing these challenges and ensuring security in IoT products and services must be a fundamental priority. Users need to trust that IoT devices and related data services are secure from vulnerabilities, especially as this technology become more pervasive and integrated into our daily lives. Poorly secured IoT devices and services can serve as potential entry points for cyber attack and expose user data to theft by leaving data streams inadequately protected.

Privacy

The full potential of the Internet of Things depends on strategies that respect individual privacy choices across a broad spectrum of expectations. The data streams and user specificity afforded by IoT devices can unlock incredible and unique value to IoT users, but concerns about privacy and potential harms might hold back full adoption of the Internet of Things. This means that privacy rights and respect for user privacy expectations are integral to ensuring user trust and confidence in the Internet, connected devices, and related services.

Interoperability / Standards

A fragmented environment of proprietary IoT technical implementations will inhibit value for users and industry. While full interoperability across products and services is not always feasible or necessary, purchasers may be hesitant to buy IoT products and services if there is integration inflexibility, high ownership complexity, and concern over vendor lock-in.

Legal, Regulatory and Rights

The use of IoT devices raises many new regulatory and legal questions as well as amplifies existing legal issues around the Internet. The questions are wide in scope, and the rapid rate of change in IoT technology frequently outpaces the ability of the associated policy, legal, and regulatory structures to adapt.

Emerging Economy and Development Issues

The Internet of Things holds significant promise for delivering social and economic benefits to emerging and developing economies. This includes areas such as sustainable agriculture, water quality and use, healthcare, industrialization, and environmental management, among others. As such, IoT holds promise as a tool in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
