Living in the Internet of Things - Conference, Forum & Exhibition

Living in the Internet of Things: A PETRAS, IoTUK & IET Conference, Forum & Exhibition took place recently in London, with Professor David De Roure as Conference Chair.

The conference, one of the activities of the PETRAS Research Hub, has been organised by PETRAS, IET and IoTUK, with sponsors including Cisco, EPSRC and GCHQ. The Research Hub is a consortium of nine leading UK universities working together over a three year period to explore critical issues in privacy, ethics, trust, reliability, acceptability, and security.

Conference Chair Professor David De Roure chaired the academic track of the conference, alongside an industry track run by IoTUK.

The conference opened with a look at AI and IoT by Professor Dame Wendy Hall, Regius Professor of Computer Science at the University of Southampton and co-chair of the UK government's AI Review.

The 400 delegates came together for the closing panel focused on The Future of the Internet of Things, with Bill Thompson, BBC Principal Research Engineer & Technology Writer, Pilgrim Beart, CEO of DevicePilot, Louisa-Jayne O'Neill, Vice Chairman of the Information Assurance Advisory Council and Dr Steve Allpress, entrepreneur and Royal Academy of Engineering Fellow. 

The conference received around 80 research submissions, many of which appear in the conference as full papers for oral presentation in two parallel tracks, with additional poster presentations. Some of the Oxford papers and posters relating to the conference are:
