Arupjyoti (Arup) Bhuyan

Arupjyoti (Arup) Bhuyan (S’86–SM’13) received the Ph.D. degree in engineering and applied sciences from Yale University. He is a wireless researcher in the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and the Technical Director of the INL Wireless Security Institute. The focus of his research is on secure implementation of future generations of wireless communications with scientific exploration and engineering innovations across the fields of wireless technology, cybersecurity, and computational science. Specific goals are to lead and focus wireless security research efforts for 5G and Beyond with national impact, to secure communications for a nationwide unmanned aerial system and for 5G spectrum sharing with distributed scheduling. Arup has extensive industry experience in wireless communications from his work before he joined INL in October, 2015.

Keynote 1:

Title: INL Wireless Test Beds for Over the Air (OTA) experimentation.


With NTIA’s experimental radio station status, INL’s wireless test bed (WTB) has “full” spectrum use as outlined in the NTIA Redbook. Along with a low noise floor due to its geographical location, the flexibility of spectrum use makes INL outdoor test bed a unique environment for outdoor wireless experimentations. This talk will discuss INL’s testing facilities for OTA experimentations, both in its research laboratories in town and the wireless test bed located in its 890 square mile test site.


Supported by the development of several testbed facilities including Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR), Cloudlab, GENI, FABRIC, Chameleon, and US-European EMPOWER, researchers are able to pursue programmable network experiments across the mobile edge, core networks and the cloud. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from wireless networking, cloud computing, distributed computing, security, and autonomous systems to share their experiences and lessons learned from using these testbeds, challenges toward implementing at-scale experiments, discuss ideas to integrate experiments across multiple platforms, and facilitate the broader use of developed experiments and collected datasets with the community.

Topics of Interest:

Track 1: Call for Paper:

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate current research on distributed sensor systems related to TEPN topics of interest. Please use the US letter size (8.5 x 11 in) standard IEEE conference LaTeX format or Microsoft Word template available on the link below:


All submissions should be written in English and submitted as a full paper. Full papers should have a maximum of eight (8) printed pages including figures and references. Full papers are expected to describe fully developed ideas with a thorough evaluation. Note that TEPN does not follow the double-blind review policy. The names and affiliations of all the authors must be present in the submitted manuscript.

Track 2: Call for Work in Progress (WiP):

Ongoing research projects can be presented at TEPN2022 under the Work in Progress (WIP) category. This is an opportunity for potential authors to receive early feedback on their current work. Submitted papers must represent original material which is not currently under review in any other conference or journal and has not been previously published.

Paper length should not exceed four-page standard IEEE conference two-column format (references included). Please see the Author Information section for submission guidelines. All submitted papers will go through a peer review process. Accepted and presented papers will be included in the IEEE DCOSS 2022 proceedings and IEEE Xplore. IEEE reserves the right to exclude an accepted and registered but not presented paper from the IEEE digital library.
