The event is open to public.
We would greatly appreciate if you would please register so that we may more accurately estimate the room size and refreshments.


Low-power and Lossy Networks (LLNs) interconnect a possibly large number of resource-constrained nodes to form a wireless mesh network. The 6LoWPAN, ROLL and CoRE IETF Working Groups have defined protocols at various layers of the protocol stack, including an IPv6 adaptation layer, a routing protocol and a web transfer protocol. This protocol stack has been used with IEEE802.15.4 low-power radios.

The IEEE802.15.4e Timeslotted Channel Hopping (TSCH) is a recent amendment to the Medium Access Control (MAC) portion of the IEEE802.15.4 standard. TSCH is the emerging standard for industrial automation and process control LLNs, with a direct inheritance from WirelessHART and ISA100.11a.

Defining IPv6 over TSCH, 6TiSCH is a key to enable the further adoption of IPv6 in industrial standards and the convergence of Operational Technology (OT) with Information Technology (IT). The talk will give an overview about the on-going work 6TiSCH in IETF.


Qin Wang is a professor of University of Science & Technology Beijing (USTB), China, and a visiting scholar in University of California at Berkeley, US. She received BS, MS, and Ph.D degree in Computer Science and Engineering from USTB in 1982, Peking University in 1985, and USTB in 1998, respectively. She joined USTB in 1985, became full professor in 2000. She has been director of Micro-Architecture & IC Laboratory in USTB since 2000. As visiting scientist (2005-2006) in EECS department of Cornell University, NY, and visiting researcher (2006-2007) in EECS department of Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, her research and contributions were on wireless sensor network technology and related power consumption modeling from both device and network system perspective. Recent years, she has focused on low power wireless sensor networks and MPSoC (multiprocessor System-on-Chip) technology in communications and networking systems. She and her research team designed and deployed low power Large-Scale Wireless Sensor Networks applied to heavy industry including Anshan Iron and Steel Corp., a major iron and steel manufacturer in China. She has been involved in international wireless network standard development since 2007, including ISA100.11a, IEEE 802.15.4e, and industrial wireless standard WIA-PA proposed to IEC by China.
