Welcome to my personal webpage!!

I am Ciprian Dobre, Professor of Computer Science, at the University Politehnica of Bucharest (Habil. since 2014, Dr. since 2008 with Cum laudae). My scientific interests are related to pervasive and large scale distributed systems. I am leading the activities within Laboratory on Pervasive products and services, and MobyLab. My research involves topics related to mobile wireless networks and computing applications, pervasive services, context-awareness, and people-centric sensing. My contributions are in the areas of mobile applications and smart technologies to reduce urban congestion and air pollution, context-aware applications, opportunistic networks and mobile data offloading, monitoring and high-speed networking.

Call for Papers – Internet of Things and Sensor Networks

The Internet of Things (IoT) undergoes a fundamental transformation as an increasing diversity of intelligent devices are being connected to it. Underpinning this global development, the Series on IoT and Sensor Networks aims at bringing together the latest industrial and academic progress, research, and development efforts within the rapidly maturing IoT ecosystem. The Series profoundly explores the concept of IoT and sensor networks, highlights the recent activities and achievements therein, as well as provides insights into the theoretical and practical matters related to breakthroughs in this field from different perspectives. We welcome contributions on the emerging IoT topics that support prospective “critical” IoT applications as well as on further evolution of the conventional “massive” sensor network based enablers.Find out more…
Papers can be submitted anytime during the year. They will receive a review process, and if accepted, they will be published in the first slot available for this Series. Manuscripts must be submitted through the magazine’s submissions Website available at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/commag-ieee. For detailed submission guidelines, please refer to the magazine website for the list of guidelines that must be followed by all submissions to the IEEE Communications Magazine: https://www.comsoc.org/commag/paper-submission-guidelines.

Call for Papers – From Sensors to Ambient Intelligence for Health and Social Care

The increase in medical expenses due to societal issues like demographic ageing puts strong pressure on the sustainability of health and social care systems, on labour participation, and on quality of life for older people or for persons with disabilities. The Special Issue targets dissemination of solutions targeting the science and technology integrating sensors and biosensors with processing and actuating capabilities, leading to the creation of ambient intelligence, in which data is used for the benefit of the older person, allowing her to live safely, comfortably, and healthily at home.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited.
