Talks & Tutorials
Here is a sample collection of talks I gave over time, representing my past and current work. Information on WSN programming tutorials I have been giving are also included.
- "The mote is dead, long live the mote!": my keynote speech at the 4th Int. Conference on Sensor Systems and Software (S-CUBE), in June 2013 in Lucca (Italy) - available on
- "La ricerca improbabile - Storia di una torre che respira" (in italian): a public speech for the 150th anniversary of Politecnico di Milano about the future of computer engineering research, at the Piccolo Teatro Studio - available on
- "LiftOff: Let the Internet Fly!": the talk I gave at the MIT Technology Review Italia Young Innovator Award ceremony when receiving the prize, in May 2013 in Padua (Italy) - available on
"Meet the Tower that Breathes!": the talk I gave
the Cor Baayen Award ceremony when receiving the
prize, in November 2011 at the ERCIM Gala Dinner in
Berlin (Germany) - available on
- "Developing Software for the Internet of Things: Challenges and Opportunities": an invited talk on the issues in developing and building IoT software I gave in September 2011 at the ERC Workshop on Software Quality in Venice (Italy) - available on
- "Bullet-proof Software Development for Networked Embedded Systems: Dream or (Future) Reality?": a lecture on static verification of networked embedded system software I gave in July 2011 at the 3rd CONET summer school in Bertinoro (Italy) "Networked Embedded Systems: Humans in the Loop" - available on
- "Programming WSNs: From Great Duck Island to Enterprise Integration": a talk I gave at the 2011 SICS Open House event, describing a perspective on the evolution of WSN software development - available on
Moreover, along with Gian Pietro Picco, I prepared an extensive tutorial on programming WSNs largely based on my Ph.D. thesis. We presented the tutorial in different versions at a number of venues, including:
- The 33rd SIGPLAN International Conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation (PLDI), held in in Beijing (China) in 2012. PLDI was also co-located with ECOOP, LCTES and ISMM.
held in Stockholm (Sweden) in April 2010. CPSWEEK brought together
five leading conferences - HSCC, ICCPS, IPSN, LCTES, and RTAS - on the research and development of

- The 1st International School on Cyber-Physical and Sensor Networks held in Monastir (Tunisia) in December 2009.
- The 6th European
Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks (EWSN) held in Cork
(Ireland) in February 2009. The tutorial was half-day with live
demonstrations and different WSN technologies shown during the

- The 7th ACM/USENIX International Middleware
Conference held in Leuven (Belgium) in December 2008. The
tutorial was full-day, with a theory part in the morning and a
hands-on session in the afternoon where we gave the attendees real
