Internet of Things and Smart Cities Ph.D. School 2014

Featured

The aim of the Ph.D. School is to address researchers to the forefront of research activity on Internet of Things & Smart Cities, by presenting state-of-the-art research together with the current and future challenges in building Smart Cities in an efficient and sustainable way, in order to provide a thorough overview of the main topics about IoT and Smart Cities and their envisioned integration. International speakers from academia and industry will give lectures tailoring their research field for an interdisciplinary audience. This year’s edition will focus on three keywords each tailoring a dedicated day in the technical program of the school. 

CONNECT > Connecting smart objects“: provide an extensive overview of low-power communication technologies, with performance comparison which can be used to make choices for different application scenarios. 
COLLECT > Creating and transmitting data“: analyze different communication paradigms (REST, Publish/Subscribe, etc…) application-layer protocols targeting IoT, such as CoAP, MQTT, and other options. 
CONSUME > Understanding and working with data“: provide theoretical and practical concepts for storing, fetching, and analyzing data collected by IoT applications, with focus on Big Data analysis and Cloud for IoT.

CALIPSO workshop at FIA, 7th May 2013, Dublin

Calipso proposes to organize a half-day workshop on networking aspects
related to Sensor Networks and Smart Objects. The Internet of Things puts forward
the vision of interacting with the physical world by interconnecting objects having
advanced processing, communication, sensing, and actuating capabilities. The
Internet of Things is also increasingly enriched with the new communication devices
that allow people to communicate and connect to all kinds of objects. The emerging
technologies of the Internet of Things begin to interconnect physical world objects
and places with people transforming citizens’ interactions with the surrounding world
and influencing how they live, travel, and spend their leisure time.

The program is available online.
