Excerpts from the report:

During the 2019 IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (PerCom 2019) conference, which was organized in the March 11-15, 2019 week, he presented his research paper.

The author published a single-author paper about a simulation-based analysis of a proposed, crowdsourced scientific peer review system at the 6th International Workshop on Crowd Assisted Sensing, Pervasive Systems and Communications (CASPer’19). The paper was well received after presentation and it will be included in the IEEExplore online database, which will increase its future impact. The author plans to extend the published paper with new materials and merge with the results published by him earlier on a similar topic at the Research Evaluation in the Social Sciences and Humanities (RESSH 2017) conference and publish it as a journal paper. That journal paper and the single-author conference paper published with this grant will be necessary to advance from his current associate professor role to a tenure track, full professor role at the University of Novi Sad.

The IEEE PERCOM was an excellent networking opportunity, where the grantee established (new) contacts with colleagues at the following institutions and considered future collaborations at the intersections of pervasive computing, crowdsourcing/crowdsensing, information security and citizen science:

  • University of Milano, Italy
  • University of Göttingen, Germany
  • University of Kassel, Germany
  • Deggendorf Institute of Technology, Germany
  • Technical University of Clausthal, Germany
  • Birkbeck College, United Kingdom
  • University of Adelaide, Australia
  • University of Texas, Austin, USA
  • Rochester Institute of Technology, USA
  • Shibaura Institute of Technology, Japan

The grantee has been working since 2017 on bridging the ‘gap’ between the more technical and engineering-oriented PERCOM, and the (usually) more natural science-oriented citizen science communities. In 2018 the grantee invited Luigi Ceccaroni, the leader of Working Group 5 of COST Action CA 15212 to be a keynote speaker at the IEEE PERCOM/CASPer 2018 workshop held in Athens, Greece. Unfortunately, the keynote speech was not implemented in the end due to the lack of funding for keynote speakers.

The grantee plans to continue lobbying to be included in the Technical Program Committee (TPC) of the IEEE PERCOM (main) conference in 2020. He will be included in the organizing committee of the next two CASPer workshops which will be held in conjunction with the main IEEE PERCOM conference in Austin (USA) and Paris (France) in 2020 and 2021.
