The Electrical and Computer Engineering department will be hosting a seminar featuring Dr. Vivek S. Deshpande, Dean, Academics, MIT College of Engineering. The title of the seminar is QoS and Design Challenges in Wireless Sensor Communications Networks.


Now-a-days Wireless Sensor Networks plays predominant role in the communication domain. The data to be disseminated from multiple sources to the destination base station or sink is having vital significance. There are many problems with which data can be conveyed up to the sink. The congestion, reliability, delay, fairness, etc. are of main concern. These can be treated as Quality of Service parameters that govern the performance of the WSN. Above all the Energy s consumption is the main constrain for WSN node. It is very difficult to obtain good QoS by keeping energy consumption low. Even if response of one of QoS parameter will depends on the many other QoS parameters. We have to take care of all QoS parameters to improve the performance of the wireless sensor networks. This Quality of Services may improve the application base of the WSN. With the QoS parameters the data dissemination along with energy optimization is get affected. We have to check the performance of the WSN against the QoS metrics for different data inputs. This may contain the periodic- non periodic data, event based data, transient or burst data. For all these different types of inputs data we are checking the performance of QoS parameters like congestion, reliability and fairness. This may lead to new researcher to verify their results and excel their research work accordingly.


Dr Vivek S. Deshpande, Dean, Academics, MIT College of Engineering, holds Bachelors and Masters of Engineering in Electronics and Telecommunications from Pune University and Doctorate from Nagpur University. Currently he is doing a research in Wireless Sensor Networks, embedded systems and High Performance Computer Networks. Dr Vivek is pursuing his Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship from Technical University of Sofia, Bulgaria, Europe.
Dr Vivek published more than 60 papers in International journals and conferences of repute. He filed 19 patents and all are published now. Vivek is working on many research projects which tackles more social and industrial problems. Vivek is active member of IEEE, Pune Section (R10, India). He chairs  Education Society, Pune Chapter. He also on conference committee of Pune Chapter.
