Valentin Poirot

I am a Doctoral candidate at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, and Research assistant at Kiel University, Germany.

My research interests cover network protocols, distributed algorithms and computing, and lately applied artificial intelligence. I focus on the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).


Best Paper Runner-Up at EWSN 2019

I presented our paper "Paxos Made Wireless: Consensus in the Air" in Beijing, China, at the International Conference on Embedded Wireless Systems and Networks (EWSN 2019). This edition of the conference was the first edition outside Europe. Our paper was shortlisted along with three other contributions for the Best Paper award. This year, the best paper was awarded to Beshr Al Nahas, our co-author, for his work on concurrent transmissions for Bluetooth 5. Congratulations to him!
I also presented "Learning to Shine - Optimizing Glossy with Reinforcement Learning" as a poster during the conference, and presented my ongoing work during the co-located PhD forum.

You can read the paper here, check the source code on GitHub or check the poster abstract.
