We invite you to submit your original technical papers to this event. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE AICT 2019 Conference Proceedings. Best papers will be recommended for publication in indexed International Journals.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the 2017 IEEE International Conference on Advanced Information and Communication Technologies (IEEE AICT’2019), held in the magnificent city of Lviv, the “culture capital” of Ukraine. IEEE AICT 2019 will be an excellent presentation event, offering the opportunity for researchers, engineers and business people to exchange ideas and discuss state-of-the-art solutions for ICT field. In addition to the traditional sessions, we are offering an Industry event – Lviv Cisco Day. Here, the present and the future of Information and Communications Technologies will be discussed with professionals from Cisco, Ukrtelecom, MTS Ukraine, Kyivstar, Astelit, SoftServe, Lohika and ELEKS Software.
Lviv is one of the most exciting cities in the Europe and increasingly recognized as one of the leading scientific and education center with its 12 universities, 8 academies and more than forty research institutes. The city is known as a center of art, literature, music and theatre. Nowadays, the indisputable evidences of the city cultural richness is a big number of theatres, concert halls, creative unions, and also high number of many artistic activities. Lviv's historic center has been on the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage list since 1998. We hope that everyone will find something to enjoy and have a great and memorable stay in Lviv.
We would like to thank all the members of the Organizing and Technical Program Committees, as well as the numerous reviewers, paper authors, presenters, speakers and volunteers, who have worked diligently to make this conference a great success. Last, but not least, the support of the Lviv Regional Scientific and Technical Society of Radio Engineering, Electronics and Communications, and all our patrons, exhibitors, and supporters is greatly appreciated.
We look forward to welcoming you all at the IEEE AICT 2019.

MINHO JO is the Chairman of Department of Computer Convergence Software, Korea University at Sejong City, Korea University, South Korea. He received the Ph.D. degree from the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Lehigh University, USA, in 1994 and the B.A. degree from the Department of Industrial Engineering, Chosun University, South Korea, in 1984, and He is one of the founders of the Samsung Electronics LCD Division, 1994.
He is a recipient of the 2018 IET Premium Award. He received the Headong Outstanding Scholar Prize in 2011. He has published over 100 publications in reputed journals/magazines and international conferences. His current research interests include IoT, blockchain, LTE-Unlicensed, artificial intelligence and big data, network security, HetNets, cloud/fog computing, wireless energy harvesting, autonomous cars, and optimization and probability in networks. He is now the Vice President of KSII (Korean Society for Internet Information) and was the Vice President of IEIE (Institute of Electronics and Information Engineers).
He is the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of KSII Transactions on Internet and Information Systems (SCI/JCR and SCOPUS indexed) and is the Founder of IEIE Transactions on Smart Processing and Computing (SCOPUS indexed). He is currently an Editor of the IEEE WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS, an Associate Editor of the IEEE ACCESS, the IEEE INTERNET OF THINGS JOURNAL. He is an Associate Editor of Electronics, Security and Communication Networks, and Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing.
He is currently the Head Guest Editor of the Special Issue on “Private Blockchain in Industrial IoT,” IEEE Network.
Blockchain in Industrial IoT
A Blockchain is a decentralized and distributed ledger with a chain network of blocks recording historical transactions. A transaction is a record of action. A transaction inside the block will be of: sensing/saving data, assembling parts, depositing money, processing a business deal, ordering/delivering a product part, notarizing a paperwork and so on. Blockchains are categorized into two types, public blockchain and private blockchain. Private blockchains have been in more spotlight in industry recently because they are much faster, cheaper, and privacy-oriented compared to the public blockchain.
Public blockchains are literally just “public.” Anyone can read, write, and join a public chain network while private blockchains are permissioned and one or multiple nodes control and restrict access of members to the chain network. The openness of public blockchain is a disadvantage. Some well-known examples of public blockchains are Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple while several well-known examples of private blokchains are Hyperledger Fabric, R3 Corda. Public blockchains consume a tremendous amount of energy, time and money because of the mining to achieve consensus. On the other hand, the consensus algorithm of the private blockchain is simple, which provides advantages of much faster computing time, cheaper cost, and greater scalability. Private and public blockchains have few similarities and consequently private blockchain is a totally opposite of public blockchain. Private blockchain has been successfully applied in industrial internet of things (IoT) because of its advantages and industrial characteristics. Most of industrial IoT organizations are exclusive and private (namely, less public) as well as money-oriented and time-oriented and thus private blokchains are well fitted to industrial IoT. In this keynote speech, Prof. Minho Jo will deliver the private blockchain, particularly well applied to industrial IoT.
Dr. Oleksandr Karpin
OLEKSANDR KARPIN received a Ph.D. from the Department of Electronic Computing Machines, Lviv Polytechnic National University, Ukraine, in 2008. He has been consulting Cypress Semiconductor Corporation since 2004. He has 15+ years of industry and academic experience in algorithms, embedded systems, SoC and ASIC designs and architectures. His current research interests include Capacitive touch technology, Human-Machine-Interface (HMI), IoT, Wireless connectivity, Artificial intelligence for embedded solutions, Robotics and Cars electronics.

Capacitive Sensing and Wireless Connectivity for Automotive
Wireless connectivity and capacitive touch sensing present extreme challenges in automotive applications. While both applications operate with tiny signals (microV and fF) in highly unstable and noisy environments, users must be able to rely on robust solutions that “just work”. In this keynote speech, Dr. Karpin will provide some insight into challenges and solutions for two applications – Cypress CapSense ® technology and a BLE-based Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).
Ihor Tanyenkov is the expert in machine learning and computer vision. He has more than 7 years of industrial experience. Working on commercial AD and V2X product for tier one automotive suppliers. Research in deep neural networks for feature matching and tracking and its implementation on SLAM.
Connected vehicles and autonomous driving concepts
Autonomous driving has a huge impact on the IT industry. AD becomes a cross domain. There are two sides to autonomous driving. First is how vehicle precepts environment. This part involves data processing from different sensors to reconstruct environment. DIfferent sensors provide different data: images, LiDar point clouds, IMUs, GPS and RTK. The fusion of this data provides a pretty full picture of the local environment and its state. But even this representation is not enough to get the full picture. There are a lot of problems: noises on GPS data, asynchronous of sensors between each other, motion objects on point clouds, etc. Second is how the environment can interact with vehicles. Concepts of Smart City, V2X covers this part. A connected vehicle can extend a picture of the environment with data, received from infrastructure and other vehicles.This infrastructure is supported not only by car manufacturers, also by huge telecom operators, because to transmit data fast, you need 4G and 5G networks, with low latency, high reliability and bandwidth. In total both, Vehicle and Infrastructure will provide enough level of safety, that is the main goal of Autonomous driving vehicles.
