Call for Papers and SAVE THE DATE

Internet of Things is going to change the way we are living!

Internet of Things (IoT) is hot. All over the world new initiatives start to offer Internet of Things products and services, but there are many obstacles to be taken before the business case becomes realistic and succesful. Still Internet of Things is very much a technology driven activity applied by hard- and software developers, whereby competing technologies offer different solutions with unclear business cases. Besides that different industries who don’t know each other traditionally, need to work together in order to create new succesful IoT value chains.

This international event (6 june 2012, High Tech Campus, Eindhoven, The Netherlands) will merge business (where is the money) and technology, and will focus on two Internet of Things cases: The individual and The Home.

The following topics will be covered during the conference:

  • What are actual business cases for IoT in Health, Consumer Electronics, Utilities and Automotive and how will this impact business in the future
  • What is the current status of IoT technologies (f.i. ZigBee, zWave, DECT ULE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, KNX etc.), how do they compete and are they complementary.
  • Who takes the lead in the value chain of IoT
  • What are legal, social and IP consequenses of IoT (will Big Brother watch us in the future?)

Contributions: Call for paper and panel discussion. We invite contributions from the industry, governmental bodies, end-users or associations with experience of, or interests in the different topics of interest.
