23 - 24 February, 2023 - Lisbon, Portugal

Within the 12th International Conference on Sensor Networks - SENSORNETS 2023


Davide Polese
Istituto per la Microelettronica e Microsistemi

Brief Bio
Davide Polese received his master degree in mathematical engineering in 2008 and his PhD degree in engineering of sensorial and learning system on “Bio-inspired signal processing for chemical sensor array” in the 2012 both from University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. In 2013, he joined to Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems of the National Research Council (CNR-IMM) as post-doctoral researcher. His research activities were focused on the developing of Wireless Sensor Network (FACTOTHUMS project) and the design of a system for recording and stimulation of the cerebral tissue (Corticonic European project). From 2017, he works as permanent researcher at Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems of the National Research Council. His main research activities are focused on characterization of chemical sensors materials, data analysis and development of wireless sensors networks for precise agriculture. He is member of the program committee of the International Sensor Networks conference “SENSORNETS” from 2018 and of the technical program committee member of the IEEE SENSORS 2019 conference. He serves as Review Editor for Frontiers in Bioengineering and Biotechnology, Frontiers in Materials and Frontiers in Molecular Biosciences.

Brief Bio
Dr. Alessandro Checco is Assistant Professor in Computer Science at the University of Rome La Sapienza. His main research interests are Wireless Networking, Computational Social Science, Crowdsourcing, Human Computation, Distributed Recommender Systems, Information Retrieval, Data Privacy, and Algorithmic Bias. His research has been supported by the Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), Royal Society UK and the EU H2020 framework programme. He has published several peer-reviewed scientific publications including papers at major venues such as Nature Palcomms, HCOMP, SIGIR, ACM Transactions on Privacy and Security, and IEEE Communications Letters. He is the founder of the Symposium on Biases in Human Computation and Crowdsourcing, and member of the editorial board of the Human Computation Journal.


The continuous monitoring and responding to the variability in within-field crops is a key requirement in modern agriculture also called Precise Agriculture. Wireless Sensor Network make available a tool for the pervasive monitoring of the condition of the crop measuring characteristics such as: air quality, nutrients, irradiation, chemical pollutant, soil humidity and so on. Nevertheless, the effect of the atmospheric agents, the crop treatments, the long-term operation in large field make the implementation of the sensor network challenging.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Wireless Sensor Networks
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Data analysis
  • Sensor Fusion
  • Chemical and Physical sensors
  • Energy Harvesting
