1. On Sessions and Infinite Data

Severi, Paula ; Padovani, Luca ; Tuosto, Emilio ; Dezani-Ciancaglini, Mariangiola.
We define a novel calculus that combines a call-by-name functional core with session-based communication primitives. We develop a typing discipline that guarantees both normalisation of expressions and progress of processes and that uncovers an unexpected interplay between evaluation and […]

2. Tracing where IoT data are collected and aggregated

Bodei, Chiara ; Degano, Pierpaolo ; Ferrari, Gian-Luigi ; Galletta, Letterio.
The Internet of Things (IoT) offers the infrastructure of the information society. It hosts smart objects that automatically collect and exchange data of various kinds, directly gathered from sensors or generated by aggregations. Suitable coordination primitives and analysis mechanisms are in order […]
